Yardley Quick Dry – Summer Sun (Limited Summer Edition)

5 Comments

There was an amazing sale the other day at a pharmacy in South Africa. I must admit, I went a little overboard and bought a whole lot of polishes. I got some nice brands and I’m excited to review them.

Amongst the 12 polishes I bought (yes, 12), I got a Yardley Quick Dry – Summer Sun (Limited Summer Edition). I think that this particular range was only available in South Africa. There were six colours in the range. And I’m sure they are from last season if they are on sale.

I absolutely love this colour. It’s so vibrant and bright. It’s a really lovely shade of yellow. Here’s what the final outcome looked like:

The consistency of the polish was extremely thin. As such, it was sheer for 2 coats, only on the 3rd coat did it finally become opaque. That said, it could have even had another coat! This was probably my least favourite part of this polish. See the photos of each coat below.

My favourite was the brush that Yardley used. It had a circular tip which fitted the contour of the nail bed so nicely. My pinky just took one stroke and the brush formed a perfect semi-circle at the base of the nail. I liked this a lot!

Overall, here’s what I think about this polish.

I couldn’t resist playing around a bit with this manicure. I took some shells that I bought in Korea and stuck some onto two accent nails.

  1. Twelve polishes, oh my – nail Polish binge! Nice addition with the shells. I haven’t found a yellow polish that’s applied nicely. I have three and they all apply steaky or really thin! Sigh…. So I’m glad it’s not just me.

    • Haha πŸ™‚ You should have seen my boyfriend’s face when I got back from the shops! In my defense, it was a sale, so got some for 50%-70% off. I was a bit disappointed with the application, but I’m glad I’m not the only one who finds yellow super thin! Still love the colour!

  2. Now that’s a refreshing shade!
