NOTD // Tanya Burr Nail Polish

Ahh I was so excited when the wonderful Tanya Burr brought out her Lips and Nails collection, jut couldn't wait to get my hands on a few bits! With so many gorgeous colours on offer it was hard to pick a favourite but I finally settled for the fantastic Be Bright, Be Happy, Be you.
Not sure what to expect, I was extremely pleased with how well this polish lasted! Even without top coat I can get around 3 days wear prior to the appearance of any chips. The colour is really bright with a lovely shiny finish. The only issue I found was the consistency of the formula. It was quite runny and difficult for me to work with, especially when applying the first coat. The second is usually easier to apply but still not a particularly easy process, but definitely worth it when you have this gorgeous shade as the finished effect!
Have you tried any of the Tanya Burr collection polishes? Which one's your favourite?

Where Have I Been?

Oh my god it has been nearly 2 months since I last posted!! I am so sorry! I am back now and promise never to hide away from blogging for such a ridiculously long time!

The past 6 weeks or so have been a very busy and hectic time for me. I quit my job, found a new one, packed up my room and moved back to my beloved Manchester which was my home through the Uni years. Settled into my new home, it was time to jet off to Majorca for a week to catch some rays. I ended up catching the rays a little too much and brought back some sunburn as a personal souvenir. The holiday provided a great opportunity to have (a subtle) raid of the duty and pick a few discounted bits!

Back to the beauty side of things, I've got a combined haul coming up for your guys, bits that I picked up from the airport, drugstore and my first Cosmetics Fairy order. This week I have also signed up to a 6 month subscription of BirchBox! I am superrrr excited as it's been a very long time coming, watching too many reviews and so many other bloggers unwrapping their exciting little parcels each month, I couldn't resist any longer! I think the website said your first box can take around 3 business days to arrive so I'm sitting here waiting very impatiently to join in the fun of discovering 5 new products every month.

Thanks for being so patient with me! Lots of love!
