I had been looking for a yellow hue nail polish for a while until I stumbled upon this Lemon Ice Cream nail paint by Barry M while in London last month.
I must admit, it is near perfection, exactly the kind of yellow I was hoping to find. The brush is rather good, nothing compared to O.P.I. of course, but if I have to compare it to one cosmetics brand, I would compare it to Catrice (which is one of my favorite budget brands).
I used two layers to achieve the yellow in the photo below. Keep in mind that I was wearing this color for the third day in a row in the photo and didn’t use a top coat. Considering it cost me only £2.99, I’m a happy customer!
I bought this nail paint at Topshop in London, but you can also buy it online here.
