The first thing that struck me with the release of nail polishes from Burberry was the variety and beauty of the shades on offers. There are of course the expected variants of nudes, but there are also reds and their "runaway shades" which include green, greys, mauves, khakis and even a yellow to name a few.
They cost £15 each which I think
it a good price for a high end brand. They have a lovely high
gloss finish which has no fading. Both colours are richly
saturated and have a quick dry time.
Metallic Khaki is a deep khaki with a refined golden metallic
Steel Grey is a medium cool toned grey with very subtle golden
shimmer, unfortunately the shimmer is not that visible once
I of course have to apologies for my real life photos of the polish applied as it does the lovely shades a disservice (I just can't take good nail pictures hence why I rarely post about them).
The brush is a standard slightly rounded edge design (without
being too long in length) making for easy application. The formula
is reasonably thick but not as much as brands such as Bobbi Brown.
Like many nail brands I have (Chanel, Dior for example) I only get
a days wear without a top coat and two days wear with one, and
this is the only reason I am hesitant to buy more as I have found
better lasting polishes.
My brother brought me these from http://uk.burberry.com
(a Christmas present, he doesn't just randomly buy me
make-up...mores the pity...)
