Tanya Burr Nail Polish for Eye Candy Review - Bright And Early

Tanya Burr nail polish in Bright And Early, £5.99 at Superdrug

Tanya Burr has to be one of my very favourite Youtubers, so when I heard she was bringing out makeup I was naturally excited. However, I then heard one half of the range was lip glosses and my heart sank - I hate lip gloss with a passion! It made me quite sad as I know she's probably targeting a younger audience with these but I was really hoping for lipsticks. I can't argue with nail polish though so when I went into Superdrug the other day I decided to pick one up!

I got the shade Bright And Early which is a pinky/corally/orange/very hard to describe. Certain lights it looks definitely orange, yet other lights show it in a more pinky orange tone. Whichever light you look at it in, it's a nice shade - nothing spectacular but definitely nice and one that I can see myself using a lot in summer.  The formula is surprisingly good - thick without being gloopy - the texture actually reminds me a bit of the Barry M Gelly polishes. They do dry fairly shiny but I would recommend a top coat as they seem to lose shine with every hour that passes by! Speaking of drying as well, these take a while to dry. About twenty minutes after properly applying they still were a bit tacky and catching on things slightly - not a huuuuge problem but it does mean you have to sit twiddling your thumbs (carefully!) for a while.

Overall, I quite like this polish. If I see more swatches of other colours then I might be tempted to get a few more but I'm not rushing out the door to get one right now. I'm also glad I held off ordering online so I could see them in person - some of the shades do seem to look a bit different. All in all I'm really happy for Tanya and think it's an amazing venture that any one of us would love to take in a heartbeat. Congratulations Tanya! :)

  1. I really like Tanya Burr and I was initially very excited about her makeup line. I'm in Canada so I can't get any of her products here - unless I order them online but I'm thinking I'll just wait until I'm in the UK to take a look at them! I do like this colour on you, though. Very summery!
