The Precious Sun Nail Polish - rich buttery yellow creme
The Precious Sun is the cheery buttery sunny yellow nail polish of our dreams! It is so hard to find or create a good yellow that isn't really a gold or a light orange - we've been trying for years and are so thrilled with how this shade manifested itself! It has a creme finish, but does have a very soft subtle yellow shimmer to it as well.
This polish does have cool undertones and will work on many skin tones - but like all yellows, it would look most flattering folks with deeper, warmer undertones to their skin. We'll be offering photos to illustrate this, ASAP!
Photos show 3 thin coats in outdoor light (pointy nails) or indoor light (short nails)
Inspiration: The sunlight-rich, soft yet jewel-toned, color palette of the cult horror film, Midsommar.
