Burberry Nail Color: No. 415 Pale Yellow

I was chatting with someone from work today, and she was telling me about how depressing the weather has been in her place - tornado warning that fortunately turned out to be just a warning but definitely very cold and rainy.  Listening to her made me realize just how much of a non-winter we have been having here in California.  It's grey and cloudy today, but for the most part, it's been bright and sunny. While I might mope about not getting to use my boots and my lone winter jacket, I have to admit the weather does make me look a little less cuckoo when I try out spring/summer makeup like the Burberry nail polish in Pale Yellow (No. 415).

I bought this nail color as part of the Spring/Summer 2014 Runway nail collection set, but the colors are all available now as part of the Burberry's spring 2014 makeup collection.   As the name suggests, Pale Yellow is just that - a subdued pastel yellow that, in the typical Burberry style, is one of the most wearable yellow nail colors I have seen.  The bottle has the lovely Burberry plaid pattern on the long metallic cap, but once the cover comes off, the bottle does look a bit odd, imo.  The brush is fabulous - flat and fans out beautifully - making smooth application a breeze.

I amn't a huge fan of bright pastel shades - irrespective of the time of the year - but Burberry's Pale Yellow is definitely an exception.  It's a creamy soft yellow that stops short of being neonish bright.  I know it's a bit of a personal preference, but I think this sort of a subdued color is much more flattering on my hands.

So far, I have found the Burberry nail polish formula quite impressive (Oxblood was the only terrible disappointment), and Pale Yellow has the same easy-to-apply, quick-drying formula that I love.  It goes on opaque even with a single coat, but I amn't very good with the application and found it better to use 2 coats.  It dries pretty fast to touch, but I would recommend waiting a good while before doing something like typing or rummaging about in a bag to avoid getting marks.

    1. This is definitely the only yellow I have liked so far..and it looks even better under artificial lighting, taking up a slightly greenish hue that might sound odd but is actually quite pretty :D
