    Would like some recs for bright/lemon yellow nail polishes with a cream finish (no shimmer or glitter). I have a yellow nail polish from wet'n'wild (D'Oh! from their 99¢ range), but it's not a yellow that suits me.

    I'd prefer to spend $20 USD or less. Thanks!

    That's not really a shade I'm drawn to, the only ones I can think of are China Glaze Sun-kissed and Revlon Zealous. Both have some shimmer though. Also Color Club has the pastel neon range that has a yellow in it, but it's not that bright. I'll see if I can remember any others later, but like I said, it's really not a shade I'm drawn to or own many polishes in.

    Edited to add: Color Club Almost Famous is a nice bright yellow creme.

    Rainstorm wasn't sold out, but I got the "held in carts" message. Just kept trying and got it into my basket about 5 mins later, added monthlies, done!
    How strange, I got an e-mail from her about the launch. Glad you managed to score Rainstorm, I saw it didn't sell out for quite a while. I didn't order it, just the monthlies, it wasn't interesting enough to spend $16 on.

    My Lacquester order has finally arrived, took nearly a month, but never mind. Mortal Coin (on the left) is really unique. Hope it's as pretty on the nails as it looks in the bottle.

    Nail Polish Discussion - Any Brand-20170609_104243-jpg

    A few recent manis, first is ILNP Showtime with Polished for Days Interamnia. The ILNP looks pretty, but it was a pain to work with, very runny and patchy at first. Interamnia is so gorgeous, you can't really see the beautiful pink shimmer it has in the pictures, but it's stunning irl.

    Next is Celestial Exaketededly with Celestial Ocean of Crystals

    My current mani is Bow Polish Good God from my must wear list. Bit of a disappointment as it has a gorgeous burgundy shimmer in the bottle that just doesn't translate to the nails. It's nice, but not as wow as it looks in the bottle.

    Interamnia is one of my favorites! First purchase from Polished for Days. Set me up for disappointment with my next haul from them.

    They have lots of gorgeous polishes, I doubt you'll be disappointed!

    Zoya Pippa is described as a bright yellow creme: Zoya Nail Polish in Pippa ZP479 It is not the only yellow they have on hand. A long time ago you used to be able to search their site by color family. Not sure if you still can but it isn't as intuitive at it used to be. $10 although sometimes less at Ulta or other places like that.

    If you are Indie Polish only Polish My Life is getting rave reviews for her cremes and I saw 2 yellows on her site. I also saw a few yellows on a blogger recently from Dainty Digits. I am not a yellow fan so haven't kept up on offerings in that color family.

    Contrary Polish is one of my favorite polish makers and she has one called Meyer Lemon but she is known for shimmers, secret shimmers ala Chanel.... Carrie also sells smaller bottles and full size bottles for $5 and $10 respectively so I think that one is worth a try. Personally I find all of her offerings very understated and elegant in the shimmer department.
    looking for Mac Love Goddess please and thank you

    Sorry, you've gone well out of my comfort zone, don't do yellow, don't do cream finish! Good luck with the search though!

    Pretty haul! I could have sworn you weren't buying more Lacquester, could be wrong though!
    Love the ILNP & PfD mani, pity Showtime was hard to work with.
    The Celestials are pretty too.
    I like the Bow mani as well, but I've also worn Good God and wasn't blown away - pretty but didn't make it onto my favourites list (yes, I have one!!!).

    My latest mani is KBShimmer Myth You Lots:
    Nail Polish Discussion - Any Brand-myth-lots-1-jpgNail Polish Discussion - Any Brand-myth-lots-2-jpg

    The holo finish is really pretty, though the shift echoes lots of other polishes I already have. The holo comes out in sunlight and under halogens really strongly. The shift is definitely noticeable.
    Working my way slowly through my KBShimmer untrieds!

    I'm fine with widely-known brands or indie ones!

    Contrary Meyer Lemon looks (at least in pictures) looks a bit more like the wet'n'wild polish I mentioned, and I don't really want glitter/shimmer. On the other hand, Zoya Pippa looks closer to what I'm wanting.

    Thanks. I don't remember saying that. I ordered these about a month ago and she took her sweet time sending them, so I won't be in a hurry to order again, but they're nice and reasonable priced. The thing that annoyed me most is that she was shipping the Dutch orders first and then international, and I think that's wrong. May be easier for her, but it made me feel like a second class customer. She's nice though and as I said, the polishes are nice, but I don't like this aspect of it.

    Thank you!

    I made my favourites list based on the way polishes look in bottles and a few have disappointed, and also a few I didn't put on the list wowed me a lot more.

    Very pretty. I sold mine as I have the Girly Bits equivalent and I think I still have the Liquid Sky Lacquer one too. KBShimmer is a brand I'm not really buying from any more, whereas I love Girly Bits, so decided to keep those. I'm sure I have other dupes as well, can't think which ones though.

    My current mani is Topshop Moondance with Cupcake Polish It's a Boy. The Topshop one is pretty good for a non-indie holo, better formula than some, but still quite streaky and the holo is just not that great.

    My previous mani was Native War Paints Penny Penny Penny Holo with Emily de Molly Sweet Jumps. First time I've tried NWP and it was really nice. Some people have complained about the formula of their polishes, but I liked this. Wasn't very holo though, but I guess it would've dulled the colour too much.

    Both these manis are really pretty - I love the NWP, so vibrant!
    I've fancied it for a little while, but I haven't worn any of the ones I have so ... not yet!

    @Anitacska , why are you no longer buying from KBShimmer? Just curious. You may have already told us but I can't remember what day it is never mind what you may have said.

    Nothing special really, just not finding their polishes very interesting anymore. I have actually bought a few lately, but a lot of their polishes are either plain holos, crellies or multichromes and none of those are that appealing to me.

    Thank you. I was hoping it wasn't an issue with formula, etc.

    I'm much newer to the game than you and I'm already getting bored with certain polishes. I feel like there are 5 or 6 distinct multichromes and each brand sells them, so they aren't really unique after a point.

    I'm also finding it difficult from swatches to really determine what something will look like in person. Some multichromes have glitters added and they don't blend in nicely at all. Looks like my nails have chicken pox, but others are so gorgeous and really add to the look of the polish. But in online photos, they look the same to me. Such wonderful first world problems to have!

    I emptied out my Stackry box last week as my free storage period came to an end. I only had 14 polishes in there, so it wasn't very cost effective, but what can you do? I've managed to buy considerably less this and last month than usual, so that's good though. I am currently tempted by a lot of new polishes, but am trying to be good.

    Nail Polish Discussion - Any Brand-20170622_161442-jpg

    Here are my latest manis. First one is Ozotic 504 with Tonic Polish The Answer is 42.

    Next is Jessica Iridescent Eye with Indigo Bananas Basilisk. I was going to sell the Jessica, but it was really lovely, so not sure now.
