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.

Yellow gets the Nail Polish Problem Child of the World Award. They’re either super sheer or opaque and streaky. And while one-coat reds, blues, etc exist, a one-coat yellow is our chupacabra. That being said, I’m often asked what the Best Yellow Nail Polish is, when I’ve just finished railing on one in a review. So I’ve got 14 streak-free, opaque yellow nail polishes for you.

I don’t know any girl who has watched Clueless and not coveted Cher Horowitz’s closet and computerized “Dress Me” program. I know I still do. Clearly, Iggy Azalea is with me as her video for “Fancy” is a tribute to the classic 90s film.

One of the songs of the summer, I may or may not play “Fancy” on repeat when I’m working from home. And Iggy’s recreation of Cher’s famous yellow plaid skirt and jacket inspired me to try my hand at plaid nail art.

PC or MAC? Android or iPhone? In the world of pop, the big debate has always been Coke or Pepsi? Remember the taste wars of the 80s? For me, it’s always been Coke. And yes, this Ohio girl says “pop.”

I remember going to Atlanta for a work trip and geeking out over Coca-Cola paraphernalia. You should see the amount of Coke glassware, barware and signage in my house. It’s a “bit” much. So, you can imagine how excited I was to hear that OPI partnered with Coca-Cola on a nine piece nail polish collection, Coca-Cola by OPI, inspired by the brand’s lineup soft drinks.

OPI Damone Roberts 1968 re-release - Summer 2014

During last week’s #NailGlossip chat, we discussed our fave discontinued and VHTF shades and Kellie Gonzo mentioned missing out on OPI Damone Roberts 1968. The mint green shade was created exclusively for the Eyebrow King to match the walls of his Beverly Hills salon.

As a subscriber to the Damone Roberts newsletter, I learned a couple weeks ago that the shade is making a return this summer and he announced it publicly on his Instagram/Twitter yesterday.

See swatches and comparisons of the shade HERE and make sure you’re following Damone Roberts for more information about the actual release date and sales information.

Last time around, the polish was also listed in the Damone Roberts Amazon Store so keep your eye on that as well.
