Bourjois 1 Seconde Nails




Bourjois 1 Seconde Gel Nail Varnish

I won these lovely nail varnishs from a blog giveaway along with one of their fab nail varnish removers. I was sent these five gorgeous colours and when my Mum rang me at work going "there's a parcel here for you.. have you been ordering nail varnishes?" I got very excited as I've been dying to try these out.
I can't have my nails not painted, I just can't do it or I bite them and the idea of having a gel nail varnish really appeals to me as I'm also lazy and cba to paint them a different colour everyday or upkeep them if they chip.
So lets talk about the product... it's meant to be "1 nail, 1 stroke, 1 second" - I am unfortunately going to have to disagree with this. It took two strokes (shock horror) to cover my nails. A vast improvement on SO many other nail varnishes I use though so I wouldn't be too down-hearted! It has a fan effect brush and honestly is probably the easiest nail varnish to apply that I have ever used. I usually pop three coats on, however with this I only did two. To be honest, you could get away with one coat but I think just out of habit I was reluctant to leave it at one coat. It was really fast drying as well which is handy when you have a puppy trying to crawl all over you when applying!

Now - to the good bit. I have scratched them, i have deliberately hit my nails with things, I have a puppy... And four days in - no chips. I don't think I could be more impressed unless I come back in another four days and there still aren't any chips. I am seriously impressed with its staying power. I'm going to credit the gel with this.
So, this had me thinking - will it not come off when I pop my finger in its magic nail varnish remover - the answer is yes, very easily. Just as easily as any other polish. 

Now - colours. I have to say, I love all of these colours with the exception of rainbow apparation - I'm just not a glitter girl. I can't seem to pick a favourite at the moment - I seem to have both lavande esquisse and beige distinction on my nails as we speak! Which do you like?

So let's talk about price. It's £5.99 which I honestly think is cheap as chips when you look at the quality of the product. I'd quite happily pay for this and at time of writing it, they were 3 for 2 in Boots. Could you ask for anymore? It seems Bourjois have gotten nails down to a tee.

Have you tried Bourjois 1 seconde nails?
