It is amazing too see how far bloggers can go now and see how much they can achieve with the new Tanya Burr makeup launch. I have been really excited about trying some of the Tanya Burr makeup collection and have seen glowing reviews of her lip glosses but for me I wanted to try out her nail polishes. I love nail polishes and often reviews or do nail art tutorials, you can find some of my previous posts here. The Tanya Burr nail polish collection has 10 shades in total to choose from and I went for Midnight Sparkles, a dark, deep slightly shimmery purple/black. She’s given her range some lovely names and I am keen to add to my collection her polishes in shades – little duck, mini marshmallows, mischief managed and penguin chic.
When I first looked at the bottle I wasn’t keen on the shade, in the bottle it looks quite a bright purple with glitter, nothing like the swatches I had seen online but slightly garish. This isn’t the look or effect the polish gives when applied, instead the polish is a lovely deep and dark shade with tiny glitter and shimmer pieces which give a depth to the nail polish tone but aren’t immediately obvious. Midnight sparkles is such a dark purple is could be mistaken for black unless looking upclose. The polish is quite a thick consistency but dries fairly fast. I did find it to be a little gloopy but it does give very even results and means that one layer of polish gives a good solid colour. The polishes are heavily pigmented although for a strong colour I applied two layers.
