Bourjois 1 seconde gel texture nail polish* in no.12 Rouge Obscur – £5.99
available from Boots and Superdrug
As Autumn creeps upon us, so does the nagging desire to revert everything bright and colourful into something dark and vampy, and this begins with the nails. It is time to bid farewell to my pastel love affair and embrace the moody and the dramatic with sinister berry hues and opulent inky shades. And this nail polish from Bourjois fits the bill perfectly. With its rich, gel-like texture you get a professional-looking finish with an on-trend colour to match, yet it is one of those colours that is irritatingly tricky to describe. In some lights it is a rich burgundy, in others it hints at a reddy-brown. Either way however it is a gorgeous shade with an irresistibly silky application and finish, and is the perfect polish for the current season.
