4 Ways to Use the Bestselling Mellow the Yellow

Our Mellow the Yellow Nail Brightening Treatment is a bestseller for a reason! We love the benefits of this nail lacquer as it helps conceal any yellow on the nails while also leaving behind a pearlescent white colour. While Mellow the Yellow works great for a nail treatment, this versatile colour is also perfect for different trendy nail designs. To see the 4 ways we used Mellow the Yellow, keep on reading!

Mellow the Yellow

The Go-To Mellow the Yellow Application

Mellow the Yellow is best known for its ability to help brighten the look of yellowing nails. The opalescent Nail Brightening Treatment gently exfoliates dry, damaged nails to not only conceal the yellow upon application, but it also targets the root of the problem. Formulated with Lemon Fruit Extract, Vitamin E and Red Algae, this skin-conditioning treatment leaves nails brighter, smoother, and more renewed. Use 2-3 coats of Mellow the Yellow by itself to give nails a shimmery opalescent pearly white colour and also treat the nails at the same time!

Another way you can use Mellow the Yellow is a shimmery French manicure! We love that the French manicure trend is coming back but in a new, trendy way. Instead of using a traditional sheer/nude base coat for your manicure, try using Mellow the Yellow instead! Begin by applying one to two coats of Mellow the Yellow as your base coat. Next, using Cotton Buds Patent Shine 10X Nail Lacquer and our Signature Nail Art Tools 3-Piece Nail Design Brushes, draw a thin line on the tips of each nail with the stippling brush. Clean up any lacquer that may have gotten ‘outside the lines’ with the cleanup brush before sealing in your mani with Hardwear Shine UV Top Coat.

A Very Mellow Mani

Another way that we love to use Mellow the Yellow is to create a simple yet chic “less is more” manicure! To achieve this manicure, begin by choosing a neutral or a light pink nail colour. We love using our Sheer Wisdom Nail Tinted Moisturizers, Sandy Bum Patent Shine 10X Nail Lacquer, or Mums the Word Patent Shine 10X Nail Lacquer as a neutral base. Once the base colour is on, apply one to two coats of Mellow the Yellow Nail Brightening Serum to add an opalescent shimmer to your barely-there mani. Top if off with Hardwear Shine UV Topcoat to add a high shine finish to complete your simple yet shimmery mani!

Must-Have Mellow Nail Art

Last but not least, we have show-stopping nail art featuring Mellow the Yellow! Begin by applying 2 coats of High Street Crème Patent Shine 10X Nail Lacquer on the thumb, middle finger, and pinky. On your pointer finger and ring finger, apply 2 coats of Mellow the Yellow to give nails a pearly colour. Next, using our stippling brush and High Street Crème, coat only the tip of your pointer finger for a French tip. On your ring finger with our dotting brush, use shade Trout Pout Patent Shine 10X Nail Lacquer and Pop Orange Patent Shine 10X Nail Lacquer to draw 5 dots in a circle to mimic a flower. Draw 2 flowers with Trout Pout and 2 flowers with Pop Orange on the tip of the ring finger. Let dry. To complete your flowers, use Waterloo Blue Patent Shine 10X Nail Lacquer with the dotting brush and add a blue dot at the center of each flower. Seal in this cheeky manicure with our Hardwear Shine UV Topcoat.
