Rescue Beauty Lounge Yellow Fever

Tonight's yellow polish is Rescue Beauty Lounge Yellow Fever. Because I'm a scientist with an interest in virology, my brain goes immediately to the disease, but really, Yellow Fever is a perfect name for this polish. It's yellow!! Really yellow. RBL describes Yellow Fever like this: "Closet packed with navy, gray and black? Then pick this saturated lemon yellow to brighten those blah uniform colors. It also kicks up summer whites and safari neutrals in khaki and olive drab." Yellow Fever definitely fits the bill if you need a splash of color to compliment your outfit. I would call this almost egg yolk yellow, but in any case it is a bright yellow with some gorgeous silver shimmer.

Yellow Fever seems to follow the general rule of most yellows: streaky!! Quite honestly, Yellow Fever was actually pretty easy to work with, despite the streakiness. It dried quickly, and I didn't have any problems with the formula otherwise. I have used three coats here and I think the coverage is pretty good and mostly even. The shimmer is pretty subtle on the nail but definitely appears in direct light.

Despite the streakiness, I love this bright yellow. I can see myself pulling this out to wear in the dead of winter when I need a splash of sunshine on my nails under the dreary grey Seattle skies.

  2. Well, I'm neither a scientist nor interested in virology, and the disease was what first came to my mind, too. lol. This is still a totally sweet yellow, and a pretty shade on you.

    1. Thanks! Guess it's hard not to think of the disease, given the name and color!
