When Bloggers or Youtubers release new products I always feel obliged to purchase them to show my support, although I must admit in the past I have felt a little let down by some of the launches (e.g. the Zoella Tutti Fruity range). When I heard that Tanya was relaunching her beauty collection with new packaging and some new additions, I knew I had to treat myself to something. I’ve recently got really into painting my own nails so I had my heart set of trying her nail polishes.
Duvet Day is a very pale grey – I was drawn to this colour as it reminds me of my marble background. It’s a lovely neutral colour, so it’s perfect for day to day wear. It’s the kind of colour that can be worn no matter what time of year it is. This polish does take three coats to build up a good amount of coverage on the nail, but I think this is to be expected with such a light shade. One thing I will point out is that this polish wasn’t very quick to dry in comparison to my other drugstore polishes (e.g. Barry M) which can be a bit of a pain, especially when you need to apply three coats!
I do like the packaging, it’s very cute and is the kind of thing I like to have out on display on my dressing table. The gold lettering and lid make the product look high end but sadly the quality of the packaging lets down the product slightly. This will probably seem like a really minor thing, but the lid scuffs so easily and mine actually broke the day that I purchased it! It was fixable, but it was just a tad disappointing.
I do really like this product, it’s quite different to any of my other nail polishes shade wise. I was just slightly disappointed by the formula, as it did chip after around 3 days and I honestly feel for £4.99 it doesn’t compare with my trusty Barry M polish. I probably will pick up one of the darker shades from the range, just to see if there is any difference in the formula.
Have you tried any of Tanya Burr’s beauty products?
