Burberry Poppy Black

While in Dallas I stopped into Nordstrom, just to browse the Burberry beauty counter.  Really I was just browsing.  I knew I had two polishes waiting for me at home and I just wanted to see the colors in person.  My sister came up to me and told me to pick one.  After a few no, no you don't have to; I picked Burberry Poppy Black.  

I know, I know.  I herd it from my sister.  Black really??  Yes, I went with Poppy Black and glad that I did.

Poppy Black is an extremely dark black creme polish.
 Burberry polish is sold at Nordstrom..  It retails for $21 for a .27oz bottle.  
 It has a nice rounded brush, but its not to wide.
 Formula wise, it is a bit on the thick side so I used two thin coat.  This really could be a one coat polish, it is that opaque.
 The polish dried fairly quickly and very shiny.  According to Nordstrom the polish should be dry in two minutes and completely hardened by six and a half minutes.
 I've been wearing this polish for 3 days now and not a single chip or tip wear.  I know I love Orly Black Vinyl but it does take a few coats for it to be opaque.  You got to love a long lasting, one coat black polish like Poppy Black. 
 For New Years I went ahead and used Handy plate N5 to add some firework designs to my nails.

A quick look back of my five favorite mani's of 2013.

Thanks for stopping by, have a safe and happy New Year!
