    Do you have any context for us?

    Re: Nice and yellow/ nicely yellow

    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.

    Re: Nice and yellow/ nicely yellow

    In that context, "nice and yellow" works.

    Re: Nice and yellow/ nicely yellow

    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?

    Thanks

    I wouldn't use that at all.

    Re: Nice and yellow/ nicely yellow

    I'd say 'It's a nice shade of yellow'.

    Re: Nice and yellow/ nicely 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.
