Manicure Monday: Tanya Burr Nail Polishes


tanya burr nails swatches of mischief managed and penguin chic

I know the whole point of this Manicure Monday business was to get me to revisit, use and appreciate the nail polishes I already have, and stop buying new ones, but I just had to try out Tanya Burr's line. You know, to support a fellow blogger and stuff. Shh.

Besides, I was never going to be able to turn my back on a nail polish named Mischief Managed. A beauty blog/Harry Potter crossover like that isn't going to happen often, and as soon as it arrived, this one was straight onto my nails. It is an awesomely bright, orange-toned red, with a really glossy finish. I mean really glossy, like the Barry M Gelly polishes.You could probably get away with one coat of this, but I have used two, and it seems to be lasting pretty nicely (in my pictures I have not used a top coat, but on my own nails I have, and always do). I must admit, I am not usually that impressed by cheaper polishes, and tend to buy higher end ones, and usually from brands that only make nail polish, but this shade has truly impressed me.

Penguin Chic was the other polish I snapped up, basically because penguins are my favourite animal. I can't think of a more enjoyable job than naming nail polishes, by the way, she must have had a blast. I am really glad I got Penguin Chic, as this glossy taupe is another fantastic polish, and again has a wonderful finish. If you saw my first Manicure Monday post, you'll know I love a good neutral shade, and I can see myself getting a lot of use out of this. 

I already am eyeing up a few colours in the range, including the extremely popular Little Duck. and the shimmery Midnight Sparkles. I need to be put on a lead. Do you have either of the polishes I bought? Which shades do you recommend? 

Available for £5.99 at FeelUnique.

  2. They both look lovely, much more glossy than I imagined. Supporting a fellow blogger is a perfect excuse as well ;) Just started following you!
