Received my order a week ago for the 2 nail polishes I’ve ordered on Burberry online.
Couple of months ago, Burberry launched a box set of nail polishes for Spring 2014 as a prelaunch. It was a box of 6 spring inspired colours reflecting their S14 Prorsum collection. It was available for £90 for a limited time. That’s their first nail polish launch… Yup pretty steep! Normally £15 a bottle so you are not saving or over spending but you do get the spring colous ahead of spring!? (No I didn’t get the box set!)
Then quietly, Burberry launched the trench kisses collection consists of 3 winter cult fashion colours of Oxblood, Stone (nude) and Poppy Black. I am not sure when the rest of the nail collection was launched… But there are NUDES and INTENSE (darks) ranges to choose from.
I’ve order a medium dark glossy red, Oxblood and the only metallic in the range, Metallic Khaki. Oh dear, I just checked and there’s a special edition polish in light gold
I can’t tell you how much I wanted to try Oxblood!! But Metallic Khaki looks like a very interesting colour in the bottle. So today, I am going to show you Metallic Khaki.
Two coats of metallic khaki, no top coat taken in direct sunlight. Will you just take a look at the glistening polish?!
I have been using Metallic Khaki for more than 5 days now, 2 coats without topcoat is starting to show teeny weeny bit of tip wear after day 4. From my experience, this is around the same wear as Illamasqua’s.
The Burberry nail polishes promise to last long, protect and nourish your nails. I guess you have to continue to wear the range to fully ripe the benefits maybe? Anyhow, it did dry very quickly and level out very well. You can get semi opaque coverage with just 1 coat but I like 2 coats! The consistency is towards the thicker (not gooey) and the brush very easy to work with. The (high precision) brush is great for application.
Here is metallic Khaki in indirect natural sunlight.
The colour lasted well.. Yup I’m happy!
