Burberry Nail Polish in Ash Rose: An up-dupe to Nails Inc Porchester Square


Despite we are still in winter, recently I am getting back to my nude nails. Like many beauty bloggers, I couldn’t stress enough about my love to Nails Inc Porchester Square for those “not-sure-what-colour-to-wear” days, the nude beige Porchester Square never fails.

However, when I discovered Burberry’s nail polishes range at John Lewis, I have been falling head over heels in their colours. And my favourite has to be No 103 Ash Rose.
 The packaging is beautiful with the Burberry signature patterned cap.
The colour is very similar to Porchester Square – a cream beigey nude. But there is something about this shade that makes my fingers look longer and more elegant. I just can’t help but stare at my own hands all the time!

The texture is thick that basically one coat is good to go. The thick texture also gives a gel-like high gloss finish, although I personally still put a quick-dry top coat to speedy up the drying process.
The brush is wide and dense, one stoke is enough to cover the entire nail, and the consistency of the polish is so creamy that it applies like a dream. With a good base coat (Deborah Lippmann Gel Lab base coat or Orly Bonder base coat), the colour could easily last for a week without chipping.

Why an up-dupe? When Nails Inc Gel Effect polish is priced at £14, Burberry nail polish is only £15!! Just £1 more and you are a proud owner of a classy brand, beautiful formulated and exquisite designed bottle of nail polish.

I will definitely pick up more shades from the range. Burberry is famous for their timeless design, this concept extends to their nail polish colours too! They have a range of neutral shades, as well we some timeless colours like Poppy Red and Poppy Black.
