The Perfect Burgundy


One of those classic shades that looks good at any time of year, a burgundy nail is something that I'm more than a little partial to. Essie's Sole Mate, Illamasqua's Unnatural and Barry M's Red Wine all pack a pretty red punch, but my absolute favourite has to be (yet another) offering from Natural Collection named - quite appropriately - Burgundy.

I actually picked this up a few months ago hoping to give my nails some pre-festive cheer, but I've been wearing it frequently ever since and can see myself donning the shade well into Spring/Summer. A beautiful rich red that's not too dark, not too light and with an ever so slight shimmer that sits just shy of noticeable, it's safe to say I'm head over heels for this one. I'm so impressed with NC's polishes overall; glossy, opaque colour in two coats that actually lasts on my nails. That and the fact that you get change from a £2 coin... amazing. The shade range leaves a little to be desired but if you do stumble upon one that you like I highly recommend giving them a go (especially this one)
