I'm Swatchin' You - New York Color Taxi Yellow Creme

And then there were 15!  Again, thank you all so much for being here!!!

Today's color comes from New York Color (NYC).  Being from New York, I love this brand even though it is mostly a superficial romance based on the name!  Anyway, once again, I had high hopes for this first color, called Taxi Yellow Creme.  Of course, one of the first images that pops into my head when I think of home is a taxi.  FYI, the second image is a Sabrett's umbrella.  Fellow New Yorkers know what I mean.

Well, this color can be described in one word - streaky.  As you may (or may not) know, I try to stick to only two coats when I'm swatching.  Usually, even when you get yourself stuck with a streaky color, you can smooth it out after two or three coats.  I did three coats here and it still looked streaky.  No fun.  Therefore, this color will be relegated to an "accents/nail art only" pile.  I'm thinking it would be good for dotting...which made me envision a sunny-side up egg.  Does anyone have any tips for dealing with a streaky polish?

BTW, I have a little notebook where I jot down my mani ideas and even sketch them out.  You know I now have a "novelty" mani section that includes sunny-side up eggs!  I'll start posting those fun and creative manis sometime in the near future, so stay tuned!

SH Double Duty and SH Insta-Dri for base and top.
