Tanya Burr Nail Polish Review and Photos

Tanya Burr Nail Polish Collection
Last week I reviewed Tanya's Lip Gloss which was really impressive, so following along from this I thought I would give you a heads up on Tanya's Nail Polish line which was released last year along side her lip gloss range, here's my thoughts.
What colours do you think I should try next, tweet me or leave a comment down below?
Each Nail Polish retails for £5.99 and are available from Superdrug and Feel Unique, they come in an array of ten shades mainly consisting of reds, pink and darks including a mint green, which reflect Tanya's personality. The price is consistent with many drugstore brands if not a little higher than most, but on the box it does mention that these are of a professional formula.
I received one of the gift sets for Christmas which comes boxed with three of Tanya's classic, go to colours including, Penguin Chic, Peaches and Cream and Little Duck. There is also six other gift set options with three nail polish colours in each. These are only available from Feel Unique and retail for £11.99 per pack, which is a more affordable way of picking up these polishes, saving £12!
The gift box which the polishes came in is informative, but not the best packaging. The nail polish itself is reminiscent of the Chanel Polish bottles with regards to the shape. Now I'm not sure if this is supposed to happen or if it was designed with the Chanel polish in mind, but the square top does come off to reveal a smaller round wand to hold when applying the polish, which is a lot better then the square lid which I found a little difficult to hold.
This applied with ease due to the thin long brush, but just to note the polish is of a medium consistency and is a super pigmented formula which means not much is needed on your brush when applying the colour other wise you could end up with bubbling and the polish not drying evenly. If you are in a rush you most defiantly can get away with one coat which is amazing, so in this case use a little more on the brush, but don't overload it with polish.
Little Duck is a stunning Mint Green, a perfect dupe for O.P.I Mermaid's Tears and Essie's Mint Candy Apple and First Timer.

Peaches and Cream is a beautiful nude peach, perfect for everyday nails.

Penguin Chic is a chic, trendy taupe and is very similar to Essie Miss Fancy Pants and O.P.I Over the Taupe.

I road tested Little Duck for longevity and used my usual O.P.I Nail Envy Base and Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat. I applied the polish on Wednesday and was amazed by the staying power, the colour for me didn't budge or chip until Saturday where it did start to chip slightly on some nails, but overall my manicure was in good condition considering I had done everything I usually do, including the cleaning.
Overall Thoughts
Once again I am impressed and sucked in by the Tanya Burr empire, you can tell she has put a lot of thought and hard work into perfecting the products that represent her and her target audience. Tanya's initial core collection of colours gives variety for every kind of customer and they defiantly reflect her personality in every way.
Price is around average for a drugstore nail polish, which makes them appealing to a younger and older customer.
In the future it would be great to see Tanya add a little glitter and a larger range of brighter colours that appeal to her teenage audience, but I understand her logic behind her collection which ultimately reflects her as a person.
I award the Tanya Burr Nail Polish 4.7 out of 5
