Citron crème nail polish

Dawn - It Girl is rated 3.1 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Yellow I love yellow nail polish and Dawn was a wonderful addition to my collection. It's a vibrant yellow without feeling too bright. There are very subtle undertones of green, which I suppose is why it's described as a citron. I didn't have any problem with the application. It did need three thin coats to even out the color, but I could say the same about almost all my yellow nail polish.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from inriguing color, formula isn't fantastic... I got this as past of a subscription box swap and I was intrigued at the yellow-mustard kind of look it pulled. It's interesting though as it seems the color changes to a brighter color when exposed to light for long periods of time and it is also quite a beautiful color...However, the application is a nightmare...it's very patchy, and hard to get even coverage after three coats. I recommend three thin coats with a topcoat for better results.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Pretty Color, Poor Formula I received Dawn and Claudia together as the "Lemon Lime Time" Sweet Steal. Dawn is okay. Although she's not as pastel-like as pictured on the website above, I appreciate that her yellow color hints at a greener tone rather than a true bright yellow or yellow-gold. Her formula, however, is disappointing. Due to an unforgiving, streaky application, she needs three coats or two extremely thick ones for an uneven but full coverage, at which point the polish bubbles (see image below). She is also difficult to "clean up" around the edges of my nails (I use a soft brush dipped in acetone) due to her gooey nature. Overall, despite her unique color, she's not worth the hassle and poor end result.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The only yellow I can wear... Down side... it is a pain to apply. Dries very fast to the point of being streaky - and needs 3 coats to be opaque. Up side... different and flattering... and doesn't need a white coat underneath. It isn't something I would have ordered, as yellows generally don't look good on my pale cool skin... It was part of my welcome box - and it was a super nice surprise. :)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Yuck! Received this in my mystery box along with a few other polishes. Needless to say I will never get a mystery box again, it was extreme dissapointment!!
