Bourjois 1 Second Nail Polish in Turquoise Block: £5.99
Bourjois 1 Second Nail Polish in In the Navy: £5.99

It's rare that when something drops through my door (I'd say lands on my desk, but I'm not that pretentious yet!) that it really excites me. However when these Bourjois 1 Seconde Gel Nail polishes where unceremoniously ripped from their packaging I knew it was love at first sight. Turquoise Block and In the Navy are two perfect summer shades in one of my all time favourite nail polish formulas.The 1 Seconde Nail Polish from bourjois is designed to be used in one swipe, one coat and dries just as quick. The brush is large, rounded and flat in shape (similar to the Essie diffusion line) which makes application super easy. Depending on the pressure you can cover the tiny pinkie to a larger thumb in one swipe. I found the formula to be quite liquid-y, but very opaque and most of the time you just need one coat as they are so pigmented. Turquoise Block is a pretty turquoise cream that leads very green on me. I simply adore this and it really looks lovely against my holiday tan and pops all my outfits. In The Navy is a darkened but fresh deep blue shade, it reminds me of the sea. While I don't tend to gravitate towards such deep shades this doesn't look too dark on the nail or make my hands look weird.

At £5.99 and coming in a variety of shades I'd highly recommend the Bourjois 1 Second nail polishes. The formula is on point with a lovely selection of shades. Turquoise Block is the perfect summer shade and look's wicked contrasted with a tan. I'd hot foot down to Boots if I were you...

  30. i was so excited to hear your thoughts on these nail varnishes and i'm so glad they lived up to my hopes! they sounds amazing and the drying time is a huge selling point for me! i also like that they're opaque and only really need one coat as that's where i always fail (i always put on too many coats to increase the opacity and end up not waiting long enough, causing my nails to smudge...)! these colours too are gorgeous and i really want to get my hands on them as they're great summer shades! :) X
