Item details

Curious Yellow is a taxicab yellow neon matte polish with flakies and glass flecks.

This polish can be worn alone for a lovely glowy matte finish or with shiny topcoat to make the flakies pop!

"Curious Yellow was often talked about, never seen, never felt. It was up there in the higher echelons, where the demons and the gods lived. Nobody pure could ever touch it."

-Vurt by Jeff Noon

This is a full size 15ml bottle of custom nail polish.

Average review
I bought this to match my belt level in karate. It matches it perfectly. It's nice to have a little glitter while kicking ass!

I'm mad about this polish! Because of the glitter it shifts from subtle to glowing in the light. It's utterly unique. Like every LL polish it applies sooo well, easy to use and lasts and lasts. I use a top coat for gloss finish but would wear this matte for a more formal occasion when something truly unusual is called for. I also expect that this will franken well with corals and silvers (when my polishes reach the end of the bottle I add some of a fresh polish to stretch it out - coming up with some interesting shades and textures). Love love love love love!

Returns & exchanges

In the case of a breakage in shipping, please contact me with a photo of the damage and I will replace (or refund, if the polish is not available for some reason) the polish and shipping costs.

If you have a problem with the formulation, please let me know. Polish is an interesting medium to work with. Sometimes ingredients do weird things and while I do thoroughly test my ingredients, it's impossible for me to replicate every polish storage situation. I recommend storing nail polish in a cool, dry place out of direct sunlight.

Additional policies

My customs waiting list is very long right now and I'm not taking any additional custom orders right now. I welcome any and all general conversation about nail polish and polish creation.

I will happily discuss wholesale accounts with anyone interested!
