NOTD: Bourjois 1 Seconde Gel Polish - Bleu Water

Blue Nail Varnish is probably one of those things that you either love or you hate. And having never tried a blue before this I was a little unsure of how I was going to feel about it. But I've fallen into the love team! It's beautiful! My internets being super duper slow this evening, far to slow to even think about watching anything on Youtube, so I'm crossing my fingers that this gets up smoothly as it keeps having a paddy saving! 

Available from Boots & Superdrug for £5.99

What did I think? 
Bourjois drew me in here with the one second claim. I was under the impression that this was the dry down time, but after using it and closer inspection of the claims I think they mean 1 second to apply! Which is far more accurate! The great thing is though that I needed just one coat to get a perfect flawless colour on my nail, but it did take a little over 5 minutes to dry down. As you can see the brush is really big, and almost covered my nail in one, with a couple of touch ups! 

As for the colour it is b-e-a-utiful! A lovely pastel, sky blue shade with a lovely cream finish. I'm considering doing some nail art with clouds etc over the top of this colour. Could be fun! 

So yes, a positive little review for this beautiful colour! Fab that it takes one coat as well - it takes a lot less time. Always a winner! May have to hunt down some of the elusive glittery shades I've heard about! What's your opinion on the blue, love it or hate it?

    1. Thank you Isis04! I'm definitely a convert to the blue thing!

  2. This has reminded me I was after one of these but it was more purple toned -Lavande Esquisse I believe! Lovely colour I've been loving blues on my nails going to try a Maybelline MNY midnight blue one I found in poundworld soon :)

    1. I love poundland buys! Hope you enjoy :)

  3. Love this colour! Havent actually ever tried any borjouis polishes although I own a few :/ I think this would look lovely with a nice glittery top coat on the ring finger :)

    Sian :) xx

    1. I'm like that, I have a few Essie polishes but haven't gotten around to using them yet! I love a good bit of glitter!
