Bourjois Paris So Laque Glossy

Last month, I entered a Glamour mag competition through Magic Freebies and without having a clue I’d won, received these two ‘Bourjois Paris So Laque Glossy’ nail polishes through the post. At first I was baffled where they’d come from but then realised I must have been one of the winners of the giveaway which I was dead pleased about because I never win anything!

The shades I received were 08 Peach and Love and 03 BC Beige. 

I love experimenting with different nail polishes, some may say I have an addiction and when the summer months are here, I go all out on purchasing the lighter shades. These are exactly that, they’re such a pretty colour, perfect if you want a natural colour on your nails but one that stands out too. These nail polishes are so easy to apply and glide across your nail really softly. I suppose it’s called ‘glossy’ for a reason because you can tell straight away when you are applying the varnish that it is going to be a glossy texture and when you’ve finished painting them, they look so nice and shiny.

 Another thing I like to do is experiment on my nail designs. Now, I’m not that clever; tbh, I’m not that good at all but I’m learning and this is the simple design I chose to paint with my freebies.

I decided to paint them half and half because I thought the colours went well together. As you can see, there’s no streaks and that is definitely one of the benefits. T’hey shine to the point you can see the reflection of light on the nail and it looks gorgeous when on. I have used it a few times now and am happy with the polishes. The only faults I can pick are you have to use a couple of coats to get a brighter colour and it does seem to chip quite quickly. However, that may just be me and my over active hands, I suppose it lasts longer depending on what you do from day to day. 

Those are the only negative things and I would definitely recommend somebody to go out and try some. 

What are your favourite summer shades?

Lots of love…
