If you are interested in Beauty bloggers/vloggers and you haven't heard of Tanya Burr, you must have been living under a rock! She has been one of my favourite youtubers for years now, and when I heard she was launching her own range of nail & lip products, I was definitely intrigued and excited to try them out. Normally it takes these kind of new launches a while to make their way over here to Northern Ireland, so I was surprised to see that my local Superdrug (Castle Court in Belfast), had a decent selection of her products in today, the official day of their launch.
Although tempted to go crazy and just buy the whole range, I exercised a little self control and only picked up a couple of nail polishes and one lipgloss (more about the lipgloss in another post). I chose 'Little Duck' and 'Penguin Chic':
The names for the polishes are all very girly & cute, very Tanya. I would describe Little Duck as a sea-foam greeny/turquoisey colour, perfect for spring, if it ever arrives.
If you know me, you know that I am obsessed with penguins, so obviously trying Penguin Chic was a no brainer. It's not a colour I have ever really tried before- after two coats it is a dark grey with a slight hint of purple.
As for the application of the nail polish, I wasn't expecting it to be as good as it is! Sometimes you find that celebrities/ famous figures put their names to products without any input into the quality of the product, but I definitely don't think that's the case here. The polish is reminiscent of Essie polish- not too thin, and dries with a smooth, glossy finish. The drying time wasn't as quick as Essie, I'd say it took 10-15 minutes before it was dry to the touch (that's after two coats). The polishes retail at £5.99 each which I think is perfectly acceptable. They are available to buy at Superdrug (a fill list of participating stockists can be found on Tanya's website here), or you can order them online on Feel Unique (although they frequently sell out!).
As I have just applied the polish, I can't say anything about how well they wear/chip, but I will keep you up to date- I can see 'Little Duck' becoming a firm Spring favourite!
