Natalie Portman's Yellow Nail Polish

Get Natalie's Yellow Nail Polish Look

I never thought of Natalie Portman as being too over-the-top crazy with her hair, makeup, or outfit choices. So I'm somewhat surprised to see her wearing bold, bright yellow nail polish. I guess it's not too outlandish. Pantone, the company responsible for predicting color trends in the home and fashion industries, did predict that the bright and sunny shade of mimosa would be the color of 2009, after all.

As for the polish, I'm not sure if I've embraced its hue quite yet, but I'm digging how Natalie chose to wear it with a crisp white shirt, simple blazer, and dark denim. This shade harkens back to the punky days of the late '70s and early '80s — skinny jeans and black and white striped t-shirt included. Thinking yellow might be in your forecast? Check out some of my nail polish suggestions below:

I love Essie's Shorty Pants! I bought the shade last year and I actually had it on a few weeks ago until one of my bosses gave me an "are you serious?" look. Off it came :/. I USUALLY receive positive comments though. It is really nicely banana bright yellow against my brown tanned skin. I do agree though, it's not for all races/skin tones as it can look like a fungus. Natalie does pull it off though!

Not sure I would sport yellow nails. Maybe for fun on the weekend or something but I don't think my work would appreciate the bold color!

I don't mind funky nail polish, though I usually reserve certain colors for my toes. I've worn anything from white, icy blue, black, you name it.

Yellow is my favorite color! Natalie can pull it as a nail color, but I don't think I ever could.

Lately, I've been into all things nail polish/art and I'm totally surprised this doesn't pique my interest at all.

I don't really like yellow nails. It kinda makes people look sick, IMO. Maybe a different shade will work, though.

Not the shade for me I'm afraid. Though I have worn a very sheer sparkly dull gold before. That looked fantastic.

Looks like she has jaundice in her nails - or that she has neon smoker's nails! BLEH!

Yellow? Interesting...however, I don't think the shade will work with all skin tones.

EW - I think this looks terrible.

yea ... yellow nail polish is just one of those colors that I wouldn't try. Maybe a pale yellow with sparkles as someone said, or with some gold... that could be nice.

I don't really like yellow on my nails. I guess the colour reminds me too much of yellow, unhealthy nails. =/

Sephora by OPI in Cab Fare is great. I have it and it's a bit sparkly yellow. So cheerful! I have to say that these yellow tones look best on my hands. When I painted my toenails with the yellow it looked horrific, like I had some toenail fungus.

Whenever I wear my Essie Shorty Pants I always get comments - usually more positive than negative. I love it, but I too would love a soft, pale yellow polish. Wish I could find one.
