Bourjois La Laque Nail Lacquer in 12 Ni Vernis Bleu

It's been a while since I posted about nail polish using my own nails, mostly because they've been a bit ragged in the cuticle area recently - I'm a bit stressed at work and can't stop nibbling.  So please excuse the cuticles here.  Cuticles aside, this is one of the best new nail polishes I've tried recently - it's got a thick, spreadable texture which gives you a smooth coating of colour quickly, and it wears like iron - I got five days out of this manicure with no wear at all, which is a long time for such a bright, clean turquoise with a cream finish/

The only downside is the shape of the bottle - it's got a lovely curved front with a triangular protrusion at the back, making it look somewhat like a wedge of cheese from the top (mmm, cheese).  It's certainly very stylish and attractive, but I found the cap pretty difficult to get a grip on, particularly given the super shiny, super smooth plastic.

Still, this is a great little polish, and it's launching in May with some really bright, popping summer shades.  And as usual for Bourjois, it's well priced, too - a mere £6.95 a bottle.

  1. As a fellow nibbler and lover of bright and/or glittery polishes, I appreciate that you do put up photos. It helps me feel less self counscious about wearing attention-grabbing nails on my own less-than-perfect hands.

    And that is a gorgeous blue! I'm on such a blue kick this spring.

    1. Thanks for the lovely comment! I've had some snark about posting photos of my nails with raggedy cuticles in the past, so your comment makes me feel much better about my own nibbling :)
