Amor de Lacquer: Sinful Colors Canary Yellow

Welcome to another post of Amor de Lacquer….the series all about nail polish and nail care! Send me your requests, suggestions and ideas to

I have gotten a few emails about yellow nail polishes. I have quite a few but the first one that came to mind was Sinful Colors’ Canary Yellow.

First of all, I LOVE yellow polish on brown skin. And not just on my toes as a beautiful summer color. But on my nails on the weekends when I am feeling funky. A few years ago, I would have never worn yellow polish but I am embracing this color even more now.

Here is Canary Yellow in different lighting (no coats).

I konad-ed my pinkie finger; just playing around. I didn’t finish the rest of the nails because that would have been a little too much…..even for me.

Sinful Colors’ can be found at Wal-greens for only $1.99. They aren’t the BEST polishes as they can be a little streaky but for under $2, you won’t catch me complaining. I am almost positive that they contain nasty toxic stuffs i.e. toluene, DHP and formaldehyde. Most of my polishes are “Big 3 Free” so my nose can detect when yucky chemicals are at bay.

But it is a fabulous yellow nonetheless. And I am happy to have it in the my collection of yellow polishes. And I am loving Sinful Colors’ collections. These things pop up randomly and I always manage to catch them on a quick trip to Wal-greens.

Their collection themes are just darling but I wish they would do a better job at updating their website. Grr!

Would you rock yellow nail polish? Or not so much?

Have a Happy Hump Day,

  • Askmewhats

    I would definitely rock a yellow polish!!! :) Yay yay yay!

  • Savvy

    I’m always rocking yellow polish. I think it looks awesome against my brown skin tone. My favorite yellow is Misa’s Happy Happy.

  • Miss Yaya

    def rock a yellow polish! I have a pic of my Sally Hansen Insta Dry yellow on my page will have to do a thorough check of walgreen’s by my house next time i’m around – they’ve been slacking recently


    I too love that yellow polish!! My nails are yellow also, with a funky design!!

  • The Pretty Brown Girl

    I have about 4 yellow polishes now. Haven’t put any on yet. Solar Power by ChG will be first up to bat. :)

    I feel the same way about the Sinful Colors *wearing a green by them now*. It’s pretty good considering the price. Their website is wackadocious though, for sure.

  • GS

    I´m not sure about yellow np, I think the “funkier” colors I´ve wear are black and navy blue.

  • Hijabi Apprentice

    I would definitely try it now!

  • Vampy Varnish

    That yellow looks great on you, I love it!

    hey i follow you all the time. i was just wondering where did you purchase the Konad set!

  • rmcandlelight

    Brit, Love the yellow polish on you. I have nyc yellow taxi and the sally hansen one. I will be using these during the spring/summer. I like to only konad my index and ring fingers. You know what would look good if you apply a glittery gold polish on top. I haven’t seen this sinful yellow in my Walgreens did you just get it?

  • Product Junkie Diva

    You certainly love your polish young lady :-). I say that and I just got back to the office after buying a new polish. Didn’t I recently do a post about not buying any more polish?…gee

  • B

    Nikki–> But of course you would!! 😉

    Savvy–> Hmm, I have to try that one from Misa.

    Yaya–> I have that yellow too and I absolutely love it. Doesn't leave any streaks AT ALL! It is amazing to say the least. I didn't even know you had a blog. On my Google Reader you go. Gotta support those that support me. Muah!

    BBB–> Now you know I need to see a picture of your design, chica. LOL!

    TPBG–> I have a green from them called San Fran and I just adore it. I have Solar Power too but I have never tried it. Ain't that somethin'? I clearly have too many polishes if I own some that I've never even tried. Sad!

    GS–> Giiiirl, I bet if you tried yellow on your toes, you just may like it. :) I love navy blue!

    Hijabi–> I would love to see swatches on your blog.

    VV–> A celebrity nail polish blogger has strolled through, yall. Thanks for the love, sis!

    Anon–> Thanks for the love. It is greatly appreciated. I purchased my konad accessories here in Orlando. There are several kiosks in the malls and outlets. You can buy them online at Shipping isn't too bad.

    rmcandlelight–> Ohhh, I so need to find my Konad stamper STAT! I can't find it for some reason and don't want to shell out the money for another one. I am definitely going to try the glitter top coat idea. Brilliante! Um, I got that color maybe a month ago. Check Wal-greens Sinful Colors rack by the register in the cosmetics area.

    PJD–> Oh goodness…you are just as bad as me, sis. LOL…seriously. Can't wait to read about your new finds!

  • Kiarah C. W.

  • ShanSoPink

  • Tysh

    Your nails are just beautiful, the shape everything, LOL. I wish I had nail beds like that.

  • Glamouricious

    wow i had no idea there where 3 bad ingredients to be found in nail polish. i only knew of DHP.

    I did a quick search and Wet N Wild is a cheap one which doesn’t contain! Yay.

    What do you think of their nail polishes?

  • muffin

    btw fyi sinful colors do NOT contain formaldehyde, toluene or dbp… all my bottles both new and old say they are free of these!
