Sweet and Simple Buttery Floral

I guess I've got yellow florals on the brain -- two of them in two days! This one is a simpler, quicker look with a soft buttery base and a delicate glitter accent nail. This whole look took me maybe 15-20 minutes to complete... Who doesn't love that?

All of the nail polishes that I used in this look are new releases from Color Club.

The flower nails, which use shades from the Paris in Love collection, began with a base of Macaroon Swoon, a beautiful pale yellow.

Then, using a small nail art brush, I painted on simple five-petal flowers in different sizes using Je Ne Sais Quoi, a warm mustard shade. Final touches included adding dots of Fondue for Two to the centers, and painting on small leaves using La Petite Mint-sieur.

The matte microglitter accent nails show three coats of Orange Crush, from the Modern Mosaic collection.

It's always nice to have a few designs in your arsenal that can be done in a very short amount of time. We all lead such busy lives nowadays!

Color Club polishes are available via Each of these shades retails for $8.

    Something I think I saw on this blog that I found really helpful is to trim your nail art brushes. It helps you control your brush better, I think. Youtube has a tutorial from Mr. Candiipants that describes her trimming technique.

    Lovely nail art! I actually thought the base color was Revlon CS Buttercup. It's a lovely light yellow with a great formula, and the name fits with your post title. The Revlon Colorstay line is being discontinued in favor of a new gel line, so the CS colors should be on clearance in a lot of locations. A lot of people swear by the CS base coat, as well. Just wanted to share the info with my fellow lacquerheads!

  16. Most of the games are indie titles but there are a few notable 'normal' games including the
    previously mentioned Final Fantasy III and Sonic 4 Episodes
    1 and 2. However, it just straight game purchases without counting digital
    upgrades are tallied, then Battlefield 4 earned the number
    one spot on the Playstation 4. It almost felt like playing a
    Nintendo console (the fact an NES emulator can be
    found in the marketplace made it feel even more so).
