This month’s Julep theme is The Chrysalis collection, and with it…
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.
“A runway-inspired line of nail polishes with a high-gloss finish that is toluene, DBP, and formaldehyde-free.”
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.
