Tanya Burr Penguin Chic - NOTD #13

Hello everyone! Today I'm back with another NOTD, which is personally one of my favourite posts to write. I'm especially excited about this one as it is a nail polish from Tayna Burr, who if you don't know (and if you don't, where have you been?!), she has her own blog and YouTube channel and has brought out her own line of nail polishes and lip glosses! I think she brought out her collection in January, however I only got my hands on a lipgloss and nail polish recently as they were stocked in a Superdrug near me. I decided to go for grey purely because I didn't have a grey in my collection (well, I thought I didn't, turns out I already had!) I should probably say, it's called Penguin Chic, which is the cutest name known to man!

It's a lovely medium grey colour, the word that's coming to me is a deep grey, if that makes sense? I never thought I'd like wearing grey nail polish but I honestly really do love it, it's very classy and recently I've been all about monochrome so my nails and outfit have been matching! I applied 2-3 coats until it was fully opaque, it dried pretty fast, it wasn't a minute or anything but it also wasn't 10 minutes which just infuriates me - I have zero patience! It's also super glossy, which is always a bonus for me. 

It's staying power was.. I don't actually know how to describe it! For me, it lasted 3-4 days before chipping a little on most nails, which I suppose is average and to be honest I don't mind going over the chips or anything, it wasn't anything major. However, I do have nail polishes from the likes of Topshop, which is the same price of £5, and also Essie and OPI that last longer. Saying that, £5 is a good price for this nail polish! It's affordable for everyone and isn't overly expensive.

Also, I should mention she has 10 nail polishes in her range, going from mint green to black with pink sparkles! All of them are £5 and she also has 12 lip glosses at £7, so again, very affordable.

Overall, I do like this nail polish and wearing this has really converted me to trying more classic, nude colours. It looks lovely and glossy on the nails and lasts for a reasonable time with no major chips - what more could you ask for?

These are available on Feel Unique and Superdrug! Have you tried any of these nail polishes yet, and if so, what do you think?

Have a lovely day, and don't stop smiling. :)
