Nice and shiny
It looks much brighter in the bottle than it does on your nail. More of a pastel yellow.
This polish has a great color but can barely see unless 3 or 4 coats are applied it barely shows. Very sheer
I tried out six different nail polishes from ella+mila: a white, an orange, a yellow (this one!), a pink, a purple, and a blue. Of the lot, the pink and the yellow went on super thin. The other polishes only needed 1-2 coats, but the yellow and pink needed at least 2 (if you are applying a white coat on the bottom) or 3-4 (if you are applying directly to the nail).
If you apply a white coat: the yellow is vivid and beautiful, just as pictured. However, it is matte, so you will need a glossy clear top-coat to make your fingernails look like the picture.
If you don't apply a white coat: the yellow will be more... banana pudding. Like, it's pretty banana pudding in the first place even with the white, but it's even more banana pudding now. And you have to add multiple, multiple layers. We used 3 and wished we had time for 4 because, seriously, this nail polish is the thinnest I have ever used. Trying shaking the bottle between each coat, because that seems to help it thicken a little. Once again, it is matte, so you will need a glossy clear top-coat to make your fingernails even remotely look like the picture provided.
Regardless of which method you choose, you will need multiple coats, and you will need to wait 20-min between each coat, or the yellow will streak and remove nail polish below it or mix with the white nail polish (if you didn't wait 20-min) into this weird tie-die effect. This is frustrating because this yellow requires you to add so many layers.
