I never use yellow. This is the only opaque yellow I currently own, and I only grabbed it because it was on super clearance. It is NYC "Taxi Yellow Creme'", and it is streaky even after 3 coats, but it's ok for layering. This presents a different look for China Glaze's "Cracked Medallion" crackle polish, and I was surprised to be happy with the final product. But I am. Kind of like sushi...except I'm still too afraid to try that. Really, people, raw fish?
