One of my favorite drug store nail polish brands is Nicole by OPI. Yes, they are pretty expensive for drugstore at (runs to Google to check because I forgot) $7 a bottle. That's almost $2 more than you can buy regular OPIs for from online retailers. Although, technically I don't think they are supposed to be selling them. Also, the polishes tend to be pretty sheer. You either have to layer them or use tons of coats. But for some reason the polish must work really well with my body chemistry because they dry quickly, last forever and apply like buttah.
Yellow It's Me is one of my favorite Nicole polishes despite it's lack of opacity. It layers really well over any old yellow creme. It has a lemon yellow jelly-ish base with absolutely stunning reddish orange glass fleck shimmer/glitter that of course I wasn't able to capture accurately enough on camera despite two attempts.
The following picture was my first attempt to photograph Yellow It's Me several months ago. This is 2 coats of Yellow It's Me over Sally Hansen's Complete Salon Manicure Yellow Kitty (why do these names have to be so dang long?!). The bright shimmer is washed out by the flash in this picture, but I think Yellow It's Me looks better over a more pastel yellow cream than a brighter, more intense one.
