NOTD : Bourjois 10 Day Nail Polish

4 years ago

As you know from my previous post, I was one of the lucky winners of Glamour Magazine`s May Giveway Bourjois Set consisting of a lovely lipgloss and this gorgeoooous nail varnish.

I`d never tried any of these Borjois 10 day polishes, as you know I am a fan of the lovely and cheap Catrice, a brand that unfortunately does not yet exist in the U.K., so I`ve never really thought about shelling out on the more expensive brands like Bourjois (am tempted to try out the Essie range since it`s so raved about).

I`m never convinced with these longevity claims (5 days, 10 days with no chips), to me a manicure only looks good the first couple of days, as I`m a perfeccionist when it comes to manicures and the slightest chip makes we want to get hold of my acetone, clean it off and start again. Because I like changing often the colour of my nails, I don`t really mind if nail polishes don`t last that long, but obviously it`s a plus when they do resist some wear and tear for a while longer.

I was pleasantly surprised with this Bourjois nail polish, it doesn`t last anywhere near 10 days but it kept nice and shiny for longer than my usual polishes. I would say 3 days with no chips is more accurate, but I`m still dead chuffed with this baby. And the colour... Gorge-balls!
It was almost impossible to capture the real colour on camera for some reason, so I took some photos with my camera, and some with Mr.Fish`s smartphone. The real thing is somewhere in between, a lovely mauvy pink.

Unfortunately no funky imaginative names on these lacquers, in fact - no name at all, which is quite annoying since I like having a reference. Actually I just went on the Boots website and searched for these polishes... apparently they do have names, at least on the site anyway. I couldn`t seem to find it printed on the actual bottle. I think this one must be Guimauve according to Boots.

I really loved the shape of the cap, it sort of clicks when you close it which reassures me the bottle is tightly shut. The brush is very good too, has a marvellous shape that allows you to get most of the nail covered in just one stroke.

As per usual I did two coats and finished with Sally Hansen Insta-dry top coat.
