Yellow Nails? No thanks.

UPDATE: So I really hate this now.  I wore it for 24 hours and then removed it, and, despite having applied a base coat AND IT ONLY BEING ON FOR 24 HOURS, my nails were completely stained.  Yuck-a-rama.  I went over them with remover three times, but couldn't get rid of the yellowness.  It looked awful.  Really not impressed, and am now apprehensive about trying the three other shades I bought.  Has anyone experienced the same thing with Barry M polishes?

So whilst at Westfield the other night, I accidentally fell into Superdrug and somehow bought 4 Barry M nail polishes - they're currently on offer for 2 for £5 so that was my justification.  That and I've never used Barry M nail polish before, so I thought I would give it a whirl.

One of the colours I picked up was the originally named Yellow (134).  I'd wanted to try a yellow polish for a while having spied a lovely OPI one, so thought this would be a good place to start.  Um.  Yeah.  What a great idea that was.  For a start, I'm not a fan of the formula of the polish - quite thin but somehow also drags and streaks really easily.  Initially, I liked the colour (this is two coats) but I think that's because I applied it in a dimly lit room which made my skin tone look deeper.  In daylight, I look like I've got some sort of unappealing nail condition.  NO LIKE.  It's been on for one day and one day only.  Maybe I'll try later in the summer on my toes which will be proper tanned.
