Colour by TBN Morning Glory

*Nothing to disclose

Hello! Today’s post will be relatively short and sweet in comparison to yesterday’s deep and meaningful. Tonight I bring you Colour by TBN Morning Glory. It’s actually a really nice polish, a dusty blue creme, so different to the other blue cremes I have in my collection.

What you see here is two coats, which applied fine. In fact, this is a nice little polish for its consistency. However I do have to say some of the Colour by TBN polishes are a little stinky. This was one of the stinky ones, so just don’t put your nose too close!

Colour by TBN D’or Pink

*Nothing to disclose

Evening! I have quite the girly polish to show you today, it’s Colour by TBN D’or Pink. Ha ha, every time I write D’or I think of Homer Simpsons’ d’oh, it’s just an awkward word I think, if it is even a word. Maybe it’s meant to be Dior but it couldn’t use Dior due to copyright. Anywho, D’or Pink is a really girly pink shimmer. In the bottle it looks incredible – hence why I bought it – but on the nail it’s a little less impressive I think. The bits of holographic glitters just don’t pop out much.

I have never heard of Colour by TBN before and I only discovered the brand while looking for some Ulta3 polishes. They were on special for buy two get one free, so how could I resist? They are just cheapies anyway; they are two for AU$5.

I actually took the photos in today’s post at work. Since it’s winter here it’s so dark in the morning that the best light doesn’t happen until late morning. I must admit, taking the photos at work wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be – no one came up to me to ask what I was doing. I’ve told a few people at work about my blog, but not too many. I picked a quiet spot outside anyway to take the photos. I even realised my sandshoes for my walk matched my nails! How very coordinated.

See? Totally chic.

I used two coats to achieve what you see here. You have to make the coats a bit on the thicker side otherwise it is slightly sheer. I guess you could use three coats instead of two.

DETAILS

  • Where to buy: Discount Drug Stores (this is actually a company name! Its website is here)
  • Cost: Two for AU$5 (and I think it could be AU$3 each)
  • Volume: 15ml
  • Coats to opacity: Two

So, have you tried any Colour by TBN polishes before? I’ve done a quick Google search and they seem to be a bit common, but as I said I hadn’t heard of it until more than a month ago now. Thanks for reading!
