Yellow Nail Color - A Summer Beauty Trend

My new obsession?? The color YELLOW!  Yep.  You've probably heard me whining already about the constant clouds and rain here lately...resulting in a lack of big bright YELLOW things in the sky!!  :)  Since about Easter weekend, my current color obsession has turned to yellow!!  I pulled out a brightly colored yellow satin top for Easter celebrations and have been hooked ever since!! 

Apparently I am not alone in this need for yellow in my life, as I see it popping up in beauty everywhere!! (I even bought a yellow eyeliner yesterday at ULTA!!)  One of the first places I noticed it was at Chanel in nails!  Now I don't mean gold...I mean YELLOW
Chanel is featuring a limited edition nail color in a bright pretty yellow as part of their Summer 2011 Collection

Chanel's La Vernis Nail Colour in Mimosa retails for $25 at Chanel.com or at retailers who carry Chanel like VonMaur!  I am in love with this!  BUT, because I KNOW I will get tired quickly of a trendy color like this - $25 is a lot to spend for me! GOOD NEWS!  I found an almost PERFECT dupe - Check it out!!
