Revlon Top Speed Electric

Sometimes...you have to accept the fact that some colors will just never work on you......

Revlon Electric


Electric is warm yellow shimmer.

This looks HORRID on me. I love the idea of yellow polish, but majority of the time they look bad on me. Yellow is definitely the color I have the least of in my polish collection. I think I currently have 2, this one has already been swapped or sold. Yellow also tends to have so many formulation issues. The formula in this one was actually quite good. If you have a warmer or darker skin tone I bet his would look great on you. On me on the other hand....yuck!

Happy Friday!

  1. Yellow is definitely my least favorite color as well. I could never wear another yellow polish for the rest of my life and I'd be fine with it ;P

  2. I can't usually wear yellow either.  I have two yellows in my collection, and they are more for nail art than anything else.  >.<;

  4. Yeah, yellow is hard to pull off! Especially yellows like this.  I only have a couple two.  My favorite is Orly's Spark, and I think it actually looks good on me.  It's a nice butter yellow with subtle shimmer.

  5. This is such a pretty yellow!  I have the same problem.  I don't even have a yellow in my stash.  It's just not the color for me.

  6. Oh, I so feel your pain! I love, love bright yellow nail polish, but they look so gross on me. I own 2 yellows, and both are mustard-y, that's as close as I can come to true yellow!

  7. I have Electric and I love it! But you're right, yellow polish is definitely quite unforgiving if you have a cooler/lighter skin tone.

    I've been wondering how this polish looks. I love the Top Speed line, but probably isn't my color either. Thanks for the post!

  10. Awww, I dont' think it looks that bad on you but I know how you feel. I have so many teals but most of them are awful on me, lol.

  11. Thanks...but I'm not sure if I agree with you there. It's really icky on me! That's a shame you have problems with teals. :(

  15. I can't do the mustard shades. The only ones I can semi pull off are the really pale yellows like Sinful Colors Unicorn. I love that yellow, but the formula is crap.

  16. I wish I would just give up, but I hold out hope that there are some more workable yellows for me out there!

  17. Orly Spark is a pretty yellow! I have Orly Lemonade and I like that on me. :)

  18. Boo, I'm sorry.

  19. Haha. I actually like some yellows, but I probably would be best without them.

  20. Aww....I see what you mean. Its such a petty yellow though.

  21. I so wish I could pull off wearing yellow polishes. I get them on and look sick! Seems they have to really lean super gold or like Dijon mustard for me to pull off a yellow. I feel you pain. This one actually does not look bad on you I don't think. It's when they lean chalky or pastel yellow I think not!
