Do you have any context for us?
Student or Learner
Please help - do you say :
It is nice and yellow or It is nicely (and) yellow
Thank you :)
Ok I will try.
I am in a shop with my girlfriend and we are looking for a type of chair which will make our kitchen nicer.
I find one which I don't like at all however my girlfriend comes to me looks at the chair and says " Goosh that's the most beautiful chair in the world. Look, it is nice and yellow. I think its ideal for our kitchen. Everything we have bought was yellow too. Don't you think?"
P.S. I am sorry for mistakes I might have made. Just tried to create some of the context.

And "nicely yellow" doesn't work at all in this context. Am I right?
Nicely yellow doesn't work in this context only or you wouldn't use it in any context?
Thank you very much
There is no need to write a new post to say "Thank you". Simply click on the "Thank" button in the bottom left-hand corner of any post you find helpful. It saves time for everyone.
Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
I'd say 'It's a nice shade of yellow'.
***** NOT A TEACHER *****
As post #9 says, it's possible to comment on the shade (quality) of the color.
Raul (at a furniture store): Honey, I like this sofa here. The color is yellow, and that's your favorite color.
Mona: You're right, darling. It is a nice yellow, isn't it! Not an ugly-looking yellow like the sofa over there.
If, however, the shade of color is not your main concern.
Raul: Look at that sofa, darling. Can we buy it?
Mona: I don't see any reason why we can't, sweetheart. It is very nice and yellow, too! That's my favorite color.
