Trend Alert: Yellow Nail Polish

Well, well, well. I wasn't so sure that this trend would ever catch on, but if Rihanna's wearing it, most likely fans will soon follow suit. The singer paid close attention to detail during New York Fashion Week. Not only is she sporting the newest yellow spring nail trend but she's followed FabSugar's advice by balancing out the yellow out with a grey dress — A+ Rihanna! Here are two pretty primary yellow polishes for you to check out. What do you think of this trend?


Mode Cosmetics Nail Enamel in Couture ($3) is a rich creamy nail polish that is made with high concentrations of natural mineral mica and camphor to coat nails with sheer to full coverage. The bright and bold fun yellow is both trendy and pretty for Spring, but why not be fashion-forward like Rihanna and start wearing it now?

For one more yellow nail polish,

Essie Hot Pop Yellow Nail Polish ($5.99) is best way to illustrate that fashion and fingertips are in sync. This chip-resistant sunny yellow shade is sure to brighten up any outfit.

I have hundreds of nail polishes but one color you won't find in my collection is yellow. I hate it. It looks like you smoke too much or just ate a messy, mustardy hot dog.

I don't think it looks good on her but i'd like to try it. I'm really into nail polish right now so it'd be a fun addition to all my current darks.

Isn't there a Sugar Network prohibition against leaving one-word comments on a post? Or maybe it's just my hopeful thinking. From the fact that a lot of them are "Gold" and "Platinum," I'd gather that this obnoxious spamming is pretty par for the course. Anyway, I love the fact that yellow has recently been in vogue, but I'd agree with most of these people that it's pretty difficult to pull off. I think Rihanna is the master of pulling off difficult trends, though! I think I'm going to stick to my yellow accessories for now, but if I could work the yellow, I completely would!

I'm sorry but you have your facts wrong. Essie does not make Hot Pop Yellow. CND (Creative Nail Design) does and they used it at the Fall 2007 & Spring 2008 shows. Essie made a line of neons exclusively for ULTA stores and it included a yellow called Hello Yellow. That is probably the bottle pictured. China Glaze put out a yellow this past summer called Yell-O-Neil in their Surf collection and while I loved wearing it, most of my blog readers weren't fans. Yellow is just too hard a color to pull off so I doubt it will be much of a trend.

Just because it looks good to you, doesn't mean it looks good on you.

I don't like this yellow polish. Unless she was wearing it with Yellow clothes to match.

I like the idea, but not that shade of yellow, I want almost school bus yellow.

Isn't it just a poodle? (not that it's not cute - it is. but i think it's a poodle) I like the yellow nails - but not for fall.

Icky! That is one color that does not look good. I love odd colors for nails, but yellow?? Makes a person look sick. I hope this doesn't catch on.

I don't care if it's a trend. That stuff is fug. So 80's throwback. Rihanna is too much of a Bratz doll for me to like. That dog however, is gorgeous. Does anyone know the breed?

What, oh what, type of dog is that? So cute. Maybe an Italian truffle dog? Maybe?
