Color Focus: Yellow for Spring Nails, Burberry #415 Pale Yellow, Deborah Lippmann Build Me Up Buttercup, Butter London Jasper, Swatches & Comparison

I hope you are all having a wonderful Sunday, it was very warm and sunny here today so I was inspired to put up a post that reflects the mood. 

Burberry #415 Pale Yellow, Deborah Lippmann Build Me Up Buttercup, Butter London Jasper

You are shy of yellows? I selected three wearable yellows for your spring tips, Burberry #415 Pale Yellow from Spring/Summer 2014 Collection, Deborah Lippmann's Build Me Up Buttercup from her newly released Spring Collection and Butter London Jasper from the last year's Spring collection of the brand, which is still available in stores.

I would like to start with Burberry #415 Pale Yellow, which must be the most unique of the bunch. This one is a mustardy take on light yellow, which leans slightly green at times. It is not a mustard color though, which would be darker and denser than that. It is like a more care free lighter version of mustard if that makes sense. It has great formula, no streakiness and it is opaque in two layers. Now I will tell you the best thing about it, ready? The following swatch is taken after it was on my nails for four full days! I really like the wear time of Burberry nail polishes and this one is no exception.

Next one on the list must be the most wearable yellow I own, Deborah Lippmann's Build Me Up Buttercup is from her brand new Spring Reveries Collection. Build Me Up Buttercup makes what you would never think that it would exist: Creme yellow one-coater! No Streakiness either. For the below swatches I applied two coats just for consistency throughout the post but one was really enough. I have to mention this though, to make it happen, the formula is rather thick so you need more precision during application.

Butter London Jasper is one of those lively yellows which are not too over the top so still wearable. Below I applied two coats which is enough for full opacity. The first coat might seem a little streaky but everything evens out on the second coat. Another lovely shade which would also take your nails to Summer and look fabulous once you put a little tan on.

I don't have many yellows in my collection but I pulled out two that I know to check out how they all compare.

Chanel #577 Mimosa, Dior #118 Acapulco

Both Chanel's #577 Mimosa and Dior's #118 Acapulco are denser yellows and doesn't resemble the other three. You can see why I said "mustard" about Burberry, since it is a little darker and slightly greenish once compared to others. Deborah Lippmann's Build Me Up Buttercup has tiny bit of peach in that which makes it "nude" among yellows if that makes sense. Butter London Jasper must be the most cheerful lemony yellow with some white in it.

Final thoughts: Yellow is a color I don't reach for very often but this Spring I am determined to wear it more often. After all we know that saffron/mustardy shades are very en vogue so you can't go wrong with Burberry's Pale Yellow if you want to catch the trends. If that would be too scary for you, check out Deborah Lippmann's Build Me Up Buttercup for a more wearable option.  

Do you like yellow on your tips and toes?

    1. All of DL Spring shades are one-coaters, very interesting formula and lovely shades. If you don't like yellows, there are other pastels in this collection, I love the blue one, very pretty.

    1. Hi Ana, yes these are all mid-toned, darker yellows are hard for me to pull off. Build Me Up Buttercup is very wearable indeed.
