This is a cute gold-shimmery yellow. It definitely needs more than one coat to have any pop to it. I have a lot of gold - olive in my skin and am warm toned so yellows look nice with my skin- if you don't like yellow, this won't win you over. It's yellow!!! I really wanted a taxicab type yellow so the search continues. But this is very cute and will be part of my regular lineup. Love Wet N Wild FastDry polishes- they dry in 5 mins surface and 15 mins hard dry with a base coat on me. No issues with the brush - I like it whereas I don't like OPI's as well.
