British summer time is still (thankfully) going strong which means it’s more than acceptable to wear bright colours. Bourjois’s Succès Azuré* from the So Lacque Glossy range, is a stunning turquoise creme you will want to add to your collection.

Easy application with a high gloss finish, Bourjois’s reputation for producing gorgeous, high quality shades at affordable prices continues to go from strength to strength. Grab this at your nearest Boots or Superdrug store for £5.99.

When it comes to fashion, I don’t have a healthy relationship with Topshop. Most of it falls into hipster territory, which terrifies me and truth be told, a lot of it is ridiculously overpriced. Occasionally there will be a piece I will purchase but generally, I don’t get Topshop fashion.

Their make-up range, on the other hand, is an entirely different story. The cute packaging (I love polka dots), the endless range of polishes and lip products – it outperforms against the average high-street cosmetics brand for which I applaud Topshop for because quite frankly, others have been too quick off the mark to slap their name on some make-up only for it to be dreadfully mediocre.

I’m pleased to see Topshop has played it hard and played it cool and even though I am considerably late to the party, I’m liking what I’ve tried from Topshop’s make-up.

I know that was a rambling introduction but it had to be confessed. Now. Let’s move on swiftly to two new colours I was kindly sent to try.

First up is Teal My Thunder*, which is a bloody marvellous name. (Yes, I know my cuticles are parched – let’s just gloss over that and concentrate on the product, shall we?)

Secondly, but not least, is the deliciously blackcurrant pastel Prestige* (“Worldwide!”). I’m sorry, I added the extra word in quotation marks as a nod at Stepbrothers. (If you have not seen the movie, we can’t be friends.)

These creme polishes are opaque in one coat though I went for double for good measure. The formula is wonderfully rich in colour and bone dry in minutes. It’s also a breeze to apply, when normally I am quite cack-handed with nail polish jobs.

I heard rumours that Topshop polishes were the bomb and now my first hand experience with them confirms it. I can’t wait to try more! Do you have any favourite shades from Topshop nails? Please post them in the comments box below and I will probably add them to my shopping list.

Topshop nail polishes cost £6 each and are available in stores nationwide and online.
