If there is one thing I can't resist in the summertime, it's bold and brightly-hued nail colors. This mini E.L.F. Beautifully Bright Nail Polish Set ($3.00), was a product that I was excited to try. Being that the set contained fun, and very summer-appropriate colors, how could I resist?
Take a look!

1. Party Peach: Bright orange with fine, small golden shimmers. I see no peach in this shade, so I am wondering why this is called party peach? Anyways, this is the perfect shade to reach for, if you are looking to add a bright pop of color to your nails. I typically don't sport too much orange on my nails, and I like that this one is really flattering. The small golden shimmers aren't super noticeable on the nails, but the nails do sort of give off a luminous hue. This one applied nicely but if not careful, streaks can appear. 2-3 coats yielded a smooth and opaque coverage.

2. Yellow: Yellow cream. I usually steer clear of yellow nail colors. Not because I don't like the color, but because of its tendency to streak. I don't know about you all but for me, it's hard to find a good yellow nail polish that applies well, without the streak marks. This yellow definitely was one that had potential. The formula was pleasant to work with, and I liked the opacity. But as you all can tell by the nail swatch picture above, no matter how many coats I applied, the streaking and unevenness was just unavoidable. Such a shame because this is such a pretty yellow! I don't know how but, I will try and find a way to make this one work.

All three nail colors dried exceptionally quick, and to a shiny finish-with the exception of the green teal one, which dried to a semi-matte finish. The nail brush of these was nice to use. The handle is on the shorter side so, it made precise application easily achievable. Loved it! I haven't properly tested the wear time of these but I am currently sporting the teal one, and after two days, I have very minimal chipping. I don't have a top coat on so, maybe lasting power will fare better with one.
Overall, If you favor brights, I think this would be a nice nail set to have. It's inexpensive, it's great for the summer months when bright nails are all the rave, and the nail colors contain Vitamin E which helps strengthen the nails-that's always nice.
What do you all think of E.L.F.'s Beautifully Bright Nail Polish Set? Any yellow nail colors that you love?
