BURBERRY Nail Polish Poppy Black No. 299

BURBERRY Nail Polish Poppy Black No. 299

Black nail polish really never goes out of style, but it’s sometimes tough to find a formula that isn’t streaky. BURBERRY Nail Polish has its own signature black, Poppy Black No. 299, which is probably the prettiest black I have ever seen.

BURBERRY Nail Polish No 299 Poppy Black review

A runway-inspired line of nail polishes with a high-gloss finish that is toluene, DBP, and formaldehyde-free.”

That packaging, though… The cap has the iconic BURBERRY plaid engraved on every side. Like other high-end polishes, you lift off the lid to reveal the twist-off cap.

 

BURBERRY Nail Polish No 299 Poppy Black formula
Poppy Black No. 299 is one of three heritage shades from the brand matching the signature BURBERRY check, the other two are Military Red No. 300 and Dark Trench No. 106. The formula is quite thick but not “gloopy”. It takes a bit of getting used to but will give you a high-shine black in one coat.

On its own, this is not very longwearing, but if you carefully seal it in with a top coat, you’ll have beautiful shiny black nails for days. Seriously, have you ever seen such a slick, even black polish?

BURBERRY nail polish ($23 CAD) is available at Sephora and the Bay.

  • Dayyyummmm. And though I’m usually cheap when it comes to nail polish (I stick around the $10 range…) I would definitely splurge on a great black.

  • I’ve never tried a Burberry polish but everything I have tried by them has been stunning, so it’s no surprise this is such a stunner! there’s a forest green in the fall collection that i adore…

  • I don’t normally wear black nails but it’s impressive that one coat is non-streaky! The packaging is so chic, would definitely save up for one.
