Beauty | Perfect Pastel Polishes From Tanya Burr Cosmetics.

As the new month came around I watched my Youtube subscription box flood with April favourites videos, however one that really stuck out for me (as you can probably tell by the title of this post) is that from Tanya Burr. I love watching favourites videos, in fact, along with hauls they're probably my favourite videos to watch, A, because I'm nosey as hell & B, because I'm a lazy shopper & need the inspiration.

In the video Tanya was wearing one of her nail polishes in the shade 'Frosting Cupcakes' which is a becautiful really really pale pastel pink. I loved the look of the colour on Tanyas' nails as & I thought it'd work perfectly with my engagement party outfit as the skirt I wore was a pale pearlescent pink. Tanya also claimed that she had had the polish on for a week and only had 3 chips, which as far as nail polishes go is pretty impressive right? After watching the video I did as any impulse buyer would do & took the long way to work, detouring past my local Superdrug.

I spent more than I would have done (shock) as I saw the nail polishes were on a 3 for 2 offer so I actually walked away with Frosting Cupcakes, a pale pastel pink, Duvet Day, a pale pastel grey and Fairy Godmother, a pale pastel blue.

Since buying the polishes I've worn Frosting Cupcakes & Duvet Day & even though I wouldn't go as far as Tanya has complimenting the products, I do quite like them. The packaging is totally up my street, I love the rectangular glass bottle and the hidden ribbed brush under the shiny gold lid. The brush is really easy to control and the product applied like a dream. With the shades being quite pale I assumed I'd need two coats of the product if not more - I only needed two coats, which gave my nails a super opaque look. Finding a pastel shade that applies with only two coats is pretty much a big deal, so I applaud Tanya on her products formula - There's nothing worse than having to apply three or even four coats of nail polish - Aint no girl got time for that! What I did find however is that the polish chips quite easily & doesn't cope well in water - Basially if you're wearing these nail polishes get your boyfriend/mum/dad/whoever to do the washing up for you.

The only thing I can complain about with these polishes is the longevity, but everything else I absolutely adore. Maybe it's because I'm constantly using my hands that the polish didn't stick, but like I said, everything else I love, most importantly the colour! I'm digging pastel nails at the moment and I'll definitely be on the lookout for more as we get further into Summer.

Have you tried any of Tanyas' nail polishes before? What's your favourite nail polish brand?

Thank you for reading as always! Claire.x
