Bourjois has launched a trio of sparkly nail effects to take nail effects to another level. Wear alone or layered over a favourite polish, the dense formula contains light reflecting fibres to ensure full coverage on the nail.
While glitter is a pain to remove, these strands are a lot easier to take off, possibly because unlike glitter which are made up of smaller particles, the strands are bigger in comparison.
The three striking shades are Blue Neon, Sun Scales and Aqua Purple. I opted for Blue Neon on top of a dark navy polish though I painted two coats to achieve an even coverage. What do you think?
Available from the usual portals (Boots, Superdrug, etc) these laser topping polishes are priced at £6.99 each. For more information, visit www.bourjois.co.uk.
I’m last to the party of nail art designs so to get my hands on a tool that simplifies the skill is a pretty big deal. Bourjois has designed its own nail art dotting tool and in seconds you can add a twist to your manicure – no patience required either. You just dip the tool into a nail lacquer of your choice and dot away. The tool cleverly distributes the dots evenly too. No more trying to use the corner of a brush and being left with blobs!
The tool has two different rounded ends so you can create all kinds of imaginative designs. I kept it very simple with an accent nail but now I’m confident to venture further and try something crazy.
I used Bourjois’s brilliant 1 Seconde Nail Enamel polishes new shades In The Navy and Turquoise Block, which are a breeze to use with their fan-sized brush for precise application. These polishes never fail to deliver a perfect application every time plus the opacity and quality is superb, and ideal for nail art designs.
I love how Bourjois always goes that extra mile in creating fashionable beauty at affordable prices and this nail art dotting tool is no different at only £3.99. However it isn’t available at the usual outlets – you can only buy this on Amazon or ASOS. You can buy the 1 Seconde Nail Enamel polishes from the likes of Boots and Superdrug though. I believe the new shades will be available some time this month priced at £5.99 each.
By now you will have got sucked into the hype of Bourjois’s four new cream blushers – a first for the Parisian beauty brand. Is it worth the fuss? Hell, yes!
The pretty little round pot powder blusher epitomises everything that is Bourjois, and these cream blushers are rightfully something to get excited about. It’s amazing to believe Bourjois is celebrating it’s 150th anniversary this year.
Creamy in texture, they set to a soft, velvet finish and are packaged in Bourjois’s unique rounded pots. I also love the fact they are lightweight, sleek and easy to slip into a little make-up bag for on the go, which is why I took one for my travels.
My favourite is the darkest shade of the range, 04 – Sweet Cherry as it suits my skin tone beautifully. Number 3 Healthy Glow is another gorgeous one. I don’t pack on too much, just enough to give a soft and subtle flush to the cheeks as you can see.
The cream blushers cost slightly more than their powder version at £7.49 but the quality and results speak for themselves. I know Superdrug has a 3 for 2 offer on at the moment so this is a golden chance to reap the benefits of these blushers.
By the way, here’s a snap of Leanne of Do Not Refreeze and myself sunning ourselves on the French Riviera in celebration of Bourjois’s new launch. (This may or may not be a photo backdrop behind us as we shiver the cold, English weather.)
