Sunshine Yellow By Amuse Nail Lacquer. Photos and Review.

I first featured this polish here on the blog when I posted a Musical Notes Nail Design a couple of weeks ago. Sunshine Yellow by Amuse Nail Lacquer is a cheerful bright yellow shade that'll have you singing ♫ Sunshine lollipops and rainbows ...


The polish's brush made application easy because it was dense and not overly wide. The polish however is streaky and not self levelling. Opacity is also hard to achieve. I applied a white base coat and 6 light layers to achieve full opacity. Drying time is lengthy with full opacity but with a good fast dry top coat you can reduce drying time. Longevity for this polish isn't so good with the polish showing signs of peeling or chipping after 3 days.

The polish is packaged with 18ml of product. The unique distinction of the packaging  is the diamante ring line on the brush handle, however the bottle shape is pretty standard and similar to the OPI bottles. I received this product in a Lust Have It! box (not sure which one though) so unfortunately I'm not sure how much it retails for.

Would I re-purchase this? Honestly no. As much as I love the polish's vibrancy it's not a polish that I would be 100% happy with, only because multiple layers are needed for opacity. I can however recommend this polish for use in nail art designs.

    1. It really is a shame :( I'll just use it to do polka dot nails so it doesn't go to waste.

  2. This looks really nice, its a shame you had to use so many coats to get it opaque. I've never heard of this brand!

    As for my favourite vibrant polish, I probably have about a dozen hot pink shades...oopsies :P

    1. It's so hard to find a great yellow nail polish. It's either too pale or have a crappy formula (like this one). When I find one that's perfect or at least close to perfection I'll definitely blog about it =) x

    1. Hahaha! It's such a chirpy colour. I'm trying to research how I can make polishes more opaque...so far no luck. It's a shame because I love this colour.

  7. This is a very happy and vibrant yellow but 6 coats seems like a lot of work. Slow drying time is also something I can't imagine myself having a lot of patience for. The colour is lovely though :)

    1. The multiple layers was definitely overkill. I wish the formula was so much better...
