Burberry Nail Varnish: 102 English Rose

Since the launch of their nail varnish collection, Burberry have introduced a large range of new colours, including selections of nude, red and ‘runway’ shades. As English Rose is my favourite lip colour, I wanted to pick up the same colour for my nails!

Burberry’s English Rose (102) is a pretty ballet pink with a hint of peach. It’s very sheer and takes a few coats for full coverage.

It makes for a great neutral, although it’s just slightly lighter to my skin colour, which isn’t my preference.

The only niggle I have with the Burberry range is that the brushes are hard to use – I wish they’d use rounded brushes like Dior! What do you think? Have you had a chance to try any of Burberry’s range?

Purchase Burberry nail varnish online at Burberry.com for £15 for an 8ml bottle. Find the nails section here, and English Rose here.

And just because I can’t resist my matte top coat:

I always prefer my colours in matte! So glad I stocked up on this top coat…

Today’s colour is a pretty light beige called Cookies and Cream!

Ciate’s site says: “A light taupe pastel grey that is versatile and easy to wear. A soft nude milkshake delight that can elevate your workwear or even relax a grunge rock look.”

This is a really lovely colour – a nice, soft neutral. I’m really drawn to polishes like this, so I was definitely pleased to see it in the calendar today! I decided to add a topcoat, and as Pirouette My Whistle by OPI was already sitting on my desk, I decided it was a match made in heaven…

Subtly festive, right? Love it!
