Newest Review: ... I wouldn't recommend this if you want a very long lasting polish but I must say it actually lasted longer than the Bourjois 10 day polish ... more

This nail polish is a revelation. Perusing the cosmetics aisle with my daughter in our local supermarket I spotted the perfect shade of nail polish to go with a new dress. Bourjois was a new brand for me but my daughter owns several items and she assured me that the quality was good. The colour was a stunning champagne gold, slightly metallic but subtle. We also loved a glittery granite grey shade which will be perfect with a LBD for the festive season. Unable to decide between the two we opted to take advantage of a 3 for 2 offer and buy both so we could share. We chose a shimmery pink shadow as the third item and felt very smug to be getting three great products for £12! The nail polishes were £5.99 each and I was happy to pay that for such a lovely shade but once I got it home it was clear that this was no ordinary nail polish.
The packaging certainly looks distinctive but the long neck of the lid is functional too, making it a doddle to hold while painting your nails. The product boasts a unique fan-effect brush which is supposed to cover the whole nail in one stroke, in one second, hence the name. It also claims to be completely dry in just 50 seconds. Naturally I was sceptical but I shouldn't have been, it works brilliantly! The wide brush spreads out to cover the whole nail and deposits just the right amount of polish without smearing. Containing silicone, the polish is flexible, so less likely to chip. I actually got five full days without a single chip, even though I wash the dishes three times a day and clean the house. The staying power of this polish is amazing and well worth its £6 price tag. I applied two coats over a base coat but you could get away with one coat if you were in a hurry as the coverage was good and I was able to achieve a really neat finish with its clever brush. It was also touch-dry in under a minute but safe to rummage through your handbag dry in around five minutes.
There are lots of really trendy and unusual colours to choose from and I will definitely be buying some more.
