OPI - The 'IT' Color

I am slowly collecting lots of polishes, but yellow is a shade I do not have too many of. Not sure why, but I guess I find it a hard colour to pull off.  I love the pastel yellow of Nubars' Lemon Sorbet, but the standard bright yellows are just difficult for me.

OPI's 'IT' Color is a good one though, as it has a more golden yellow tone, giving it a richer hue than most yellows.  I think the tint of orange in it makes it a more accessible yellow.

Application was a tad streaky on the first coat but pretty good on the second.  I used three coats to get it even though, says more about my application skills than the polish ;o)

 I do like this one, but it is still a bright in your face colour, nothing subtle about it at all.  It is definitely a more classy yellow, but bold all the same.

It's verging on orange. Thanks for this. I had considered this polish and now I know it's not right for me. You saved me.

your welcome sweetie :)
Not sure I would say its close to orange, but it is a golden yellow, so if its not your thing then best to know now ;) Personally I find the golden tone makes it easier to wear, but its not anywhere near orange, just warmer than most yellows. The pics do show a pretty accurate colour though, at least on my monitor.......
