Coco Rae Lemon Meringue

Today, I have for you a polish from a new polish line, Coco Rae.  Recently, Courtney with Coco Rae asked me if I would like to review one of her polishes and I was so excited as I love trying new brands.  

When I saw Courtney's new line, I thought many of the colors looked beautiful, but the one that really stood out to me was the bright yellow.  Yellows have become a recent obsession of mine, so when I opened the package and saw Lemon Meringue, I may have cheered (just a bit).  I also wasted no time in swatching it...

Lemon Meringue is an amazing, bright, lemon yellow creme.  I loved the color on this one.  It wasn't too light and it also wasn't like an egg yolk yellow.  I have only a handful of yellows, so it wasn't identical to any of the yellows in my collection.  Also, I know with yellows, the formula can be a bit iffy.  Yellows have a tendency to streak and take multiple coats to reach opacity.  This one had a great formula, though it did take 3 coats of Lemon Meringue to reach full opacity.  However, if you use a base coat and don't have blue-stained nails (like I do at the moment), I'm almost certain this could be a 2-coater for you.  The formula is on the thicker side, but it's not unmanageable at all.  I actually prefer yellow polishes to be thicker because they streak less.  

Lemon Meringue, and Coco Rae's full line of polishes, are available at their website,  Coco Rae polishes retail for $10 a 0.43 fl oz bottle, but it looks like they offer a "Deal of the Day" in which one of their polishes is $8 for one day only.  

Lemon Meringue was sent to me for review
