Here's a quick three coat swatch of OPI Banana Bandanna on my nails. I actually like this colour but I still don't think yellow is the best option for me. The problem is that even though my skin is a darker medium (NW30), I have pink undertones which in my darker skin looks more red. So yellow always looks weird on me, as in it makes my hand look extra red. Especially dark and warm yellows (like OPI's "It" colour), look horrible. This one is more of a cooler custard type yellow so it's a bit better but not the ideal! It sucks coz I really like the colour yellow :( I haven't even been able to find a yellow top that looks good one me.

The application was ok. I felt that I needed three coats to make it opaque though. I've heard from various nail blogs that yellow nail polishes tend to be streaky so I was not surprised.

Anyway, here it is. Excuse the messy application. I was in a hurry and wanted to get a picture before it got dark.

    I put on OPI's Lemonade Stand By Your Man today and it's a gorgeous golden yellow that is more transluscent. I find this kind of yellow great for my nails, and leave the opaque yellows for my toes :)

    I think I'm gonna give up on opaque yellow on nails too. This one is not too too bad on nails coz it's kinda like a custard colour. I'm gonna get a brighter one for my toes :)
