I absolutely love trying new nail polishes and as an avid subscriber and follower of Beauty YouTubers I felt compelled to try something from the newly re-launched range from Tanya Burr Cosmetics.
Tanya Burr and her newly wed husband and fellow YouTuber Jim Chapman are both homegrown Norfolk folk like me! In fact Jim went to the same high school as me and Tanya went to the same sixth form (albeit 5-6 years after me!). They are local success stories and I wanted to support Tanya’s achievements by trying out her cosmetics range.
First of all lets just look at the beautiful repackaged nail polish bottle. I love the sleek and sophiscated square shape to the bottle with the rose gold accents which signifies a much more grown up and elegant feel to the brand.
The rose gold lid can be removed to reveal a much smaller handle to the brush which supports a smooth and precise application. The actual brush is the standard straight bristled brush which coats the nail well, however I do prefer a brush with a curved edge.
The consistency of the polish itself is quite runny. For each of the colours I applied three thin coats to achieve a bold opaque look to the nail. This does however require patience to allow each coat to dry.. and the polish itself isn’t particularly fast-drying!
Having patience is definitely worth while though as the result is a super glossy and high shine finish to the nail. Gorgeous.
I absolutely adore the colours I picked up.
Little Duck is a beautiful pale greeny blue which gave a really bold statement look to my nails – I got several compliments when I was wearing it!
Penguin Chick is a stunning grey with hints of taupe and lilac. A brilliant neutral colour which is perfect for that groomed elegant look. Very work appropriate!
New York Night is a bold deep dark colour with hints of purple. In the bottle it looks like a beautiful deep purple, however on the nail the purple didn’t really show through. It is a beautiful deep colour perfect for the autumn and winter months.
These nail polishes set me back £4.99 each which I thought was pretty reasonable. The colour range is great and I do love the super glossy formula. I was however disappointed with the amount of coats needed to achieve an opaque look. Also these polishes chipped on me after only a couple of days wear and this was with a base coat and top coat.
Have you tried any of these polishes or anything from the range? Let me know your thoughts. I love reading and replying to your comments.
