NOTD: Yellow Comparisons

Yeah, I know. It's odd to see me comparing yellows when Anna has so many and they look so good on her! But occasionally I like to spark things up a bit and when I spotted the new SinfulColors Sail La Vie collection at Walgreens one of the colors I had to get was Anchors Away. (The others were three of the four blues, no surprise.) I had expected it to be close to the other yellows I have, but I was wrong. Yay! It's a rainy Memorial Day weekend here in MA, so I've got to get my sunshine where I can.
Pointer to pinkie:
Sally Hansen CSM Butterscotch
OPI The "It" Color
SinfulColors Anchors Away
SinfulColors Pull Over

I found the Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Butterscotch (and the blue Resurrection) in a clearance bin at Ulta, so it was marked down to a price I'd be willing to pay for a "maybe" color. It's a hot dog mustard kind of color that, surprisingly, looked pretty good on me — not what I'd call a "butterscotch" color, but I don't name 'em... Great for the summer!

OPI's The "It" Color was from their Mod About Brights collection a few years ago. It's a bright taxi cab yellow and it would be a fabulous color for summer pedicures.

SinfulColors Anchors Away is from the new Sail La Vie collection so I can't say yet if it's an LE or will become part of the permanent line of colors. It's the most orange-leaning of my yellows and may be my second favorite after Butterscotch.

SinfulColors Pull Over was originally from their Tropical Ecstasy collection, I think, but it was re-promoted in last year's Study In Style collection, where it was totally eclipsed by the new color-of-the-moment, Leap Flog. It's very similar to The "It" Color and may be one of the core line now.

Enjoy your holiday weekend and I hope you all have some real sunshine!

  1. Great comparison, such a shame I can't get my hands on Sinful Colors, but I don't lose hope) do you remember how many coat you did for Pull Over?

  3. I like Anchors Away it's a very warm, dark yellow. I have to keep an eye out for that one next time I go shopping. I like Sinful Colors collection; I have Sinful Colors Secret Admirer and it's one of my favorite polishes.

    1. I'm a huge SinfulColors fan! I think I have more of their polish than any other brand. (The price may have something to do with it...)

  4. These are really pretty! I don't think I have anything like them.

    1. I tend to go for the redder yellows because the lemony yellows look horrible on me. Even these are more likely to be use as accents than for a full mani!

  5. Hello!
    I have a question... OPI's The "It" Color and SH Butterscotch are similar? Or they have much difference?
