Bourjois La Laque Nail Polish Varnish Bourjois La Laque Nail Varnish Polish

It’s been quite a while since I last used a Bourjois nail polish, but this latest launch has rekindled my love for all things Bourjois and nails together.

Bourjois La Laque Nail Enamels are new for Summer 2015, and are available right now, so here’s a quick review (spoiler alert: I love them!)

Highly pigmented, a deep glossy shine and not too bad in terms of wear (about a week on my nails, which is about average for a drugstore nail varnish for me), these are super easy to apply. The brush loads up with quite a large dose of product, so make sure to swipe some off on the inside of the bottle before applying. These are so pigmented that if you’re short of time, even one coat will get out of the door with a more-than-decent mani, but obviously the second coat gives it that super glossy, super-plumped look. Even the White Spirit shade is pigmented enough to make do with one coat if you’re really pushed; not something I’ve ever found in any other white polish.

In these photos below, the first photo is just one coat of each shade, the second photo is two coats – I know, you can hardly tell the difference at first glance, right?

Of the 12 shades currently available, I ‘ve been playing with White Spirit, a proper tipp-ex white, Fuchsiao Bella, a hot tropical pink, Only Bluuue, a right royal blue and Lycheers, probably the most office appropriate of the four shades I’ve swatched. Oh and I should just mention the very “different” bottle shape – rather like those triangular coloured wooden blocks that you used to play with as a child, they fit together in a really cute way to form a circle when you put four of them together – check out the photo I posted on Instagram (click here) to see what I mean!

At only £6.49, these are a real drugstore find and I think these will fly off the shelves for this summer. I have a feeling Bourjois may introduce some other shades down the line, but for now, I’ll be high living my way through the summer with my tipp-ex white nails!
