The other day I was shopping at the HEB for some gro-ce-ries (say it with me like a Texan), and I came across an NYC display with some fancy new nail colors. They're all here on Nouveau Cheap, but one in particular stood out to me.
Midtown Mimosa is described as a "yellow creme" on Nouveau Cheap, but it's actually a perfect yellow jelly.
Now I dunno about you, but I freakin' love yellow nail polish. The only problem I have with yellow (just a teensy little problem) is that it looks fucking terrible on me.
Somehow, Midtown Mimosa is an exception to that rule. In my opinion, I have finally found a yellow that is wearable for my skin tone.
My only issue with this polish is that it's a jelly. So what you see is about four coats, and even then I have quite a bit of VNL. So now I have to find something to layer this polish over if I actually want to wear it.
But honestly? this is not a big deal for me. The formula is great, the dry time is not bad at all, and I love the squishy jelly finish and the warm tone this yellow has.
Here's a big 'ol hand shot:
One last thing before I sign off: An outtake from my last CrowsToes post. This look didn't quite make the cut because I accidentally dabbed too much glitter onto my ring finger. Oh well! It still looks good.
That's all I got chilluns. I finished swatching some more CrowsToes last night, and I hope to have the pictures all ready soon.
PS: Almost forgot, this polish was 93 cents. Best. Deal. Ever.
