Yellow nail polish. Such a polarizing shade. Why? Because, regardless of whether you love or hate it on your nails, if you’ve ever applied a yellow, you know the issues that plague the color family.

Normally, when I see a neon nail polish collection, I cringe a bit inside. While bright and fun, neons are notorious problem children. They are plagued by opacity issues, streaks and the need for a white base coat. In other words… TOO.MUCH.WORK!

Thankfully, we’re seeing some non-traditional neons this season, like Essie’s version and now the Maybelline Color Show Bleached Neons, which are a not-so-in-your-face take on the day-glow brights we typically associate with the genre.
