Hola mi amigos! Welcome back to the blog 🙂 If you’re a regular reader, you’ll know I love trying lots of different nail polish brands, finishes and colours. I’m pretty much a nail polish addict! When I set my eyes on Tanya Burr Duvet Day, I immediately knew I HAD to have it! It’s one of the most beautiful coloured polishes I’ve ever seen.
It’s hard to describe, but the colour is sort of a gentle blue-grey. It is muted but still so pretty. This shade is so on-trend at the moment, but it’s also quite classic and could be worn to work.
Sadly, my excitement didn’t last long after trying it…. I should have learnt my lesson with the Martha Moo liquid lipstick (ok, it wasn’t that bad, but I don’t see why it is getting rave reviews with that formula!)
Tanya Burr Duvet Day – The Packaging
Tanya has got it spot on with this packaging. Its sleek squared bottle features gold text and a chunky gold lid. It even has a little pink heart on the top of the lid, which is a cute touch! The gold part of the lid can be pulled off, to reveal a small black handle. This makes actually applying the polish a lot easier.
Tanya Burr Duvet Day – The Formula
I’m not particularly fussy and generally like most beauty products. However, I have tried a lot of different nail varnishes in the past, so I know what works well and what doesn’t. I tested this out with my usual Nails Inc Kensington Caviar Base Coat and Revlon Colorstay Gel Envy Diamond Top Coat (longest nail varnish names ever!)
I applied two coats of the Duvet Day polish. The formula was a bit awkward to apply as it wasn’t quite smooth and liquidy enough. It didn’t cover the texture of the nails very well – you can see the ridges on my nails in these photos, which isn’t great!
Tanya Burr Duvet Day – Wear Time
Once it was on though, it looked really pretty if you didn’t look too closely! The big problem with Tanya Burr Duvet Day is when it comes to wear time. This chipped within the first few hours (and bear in mind I spend most of my time stuck in bed, so my nails don’t get bashed around much!) I thought it was a bit of a fluke, so I repaired the chipped nails and carried on.
On day two, the chipping was so bad that I had to remove the polish. It looked awful, and even despite being quite a light colour, the chipping was very obvious. I’ve given it another go since, just to test it fairly, and it was exactly the same. I was actually really surprised, as I have one of her very old style nail polishes and it stays on my nails for aaaages!!
Overall, I was quite disappointed with this product. It’s such a beautiful colour, but I can’t face having to re-do my nails almost daily to keep up with it! Such a shame.
If this hasn’t put you off and you still want to try Duvet Day, you can find it here for £4.99 (on sale at £2 at time of writing).
