Bourjois 15

Two coats, sunlight

Oh Bourjois, why have I only discovered you now? This is my very first polish from Bourjois and it was bought on a whim. I’m very glad I did because I love this hot pink! It’s quite a Barbie doll fuschia-pink colour, don’t you think? At first glance, it looks like a simple creme but there is subtle shimmer going on, which you can’t really see in the photo, but trust me it’s there.

The application was lovely and this polish came with a special slanted brush. At first, it was a bit confusing, especially when it came to painting the left hand, as I was used to the wide OPI brushes, but it was easy to get used to. The polish claims to be chip-free for 10 days. I’m not sure how true that is as I haven’t worn it for 10 days yet. But I have worn it for a couple of days now and it seems quite sturdy. A strange thing about this polish is that it doesn’t have a name. So I think it’s called “15” because there is a number at the back of the bottle.

With China Glaze Sugar High, two coats, sunlight

China Glaze Sugar High is the closest to a hot pink that I own, which as you can tell, isn’t very similar at all. Sugar High is paler and has a softness to it that the bold Bourjois polish doesn’t have.

Here is the manicure I’m spotting right now. It is a combination of three pinks. The one that is more purple looking is Zoya Moxie, another of my favourite polishes. This is not very striking apparently. Nobody has commented on this look!

On a side note, I’m clutching a homemade green smoothie that I bring to work every morning. I bought a blender recently because reading raw food blogs inspired me to eat more raw greens.
