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.

Have your nails gone over to the dark side?

    How long does it last before chipping? I really want a polish this colour that'll last at least 4 days! I love this deep red shade

    @robyn – I have only been wearing this for two days, but so far so good. Their other 1 seconde polishes did last me a good 3-4 days chipfree x

    This looks lovely on you. Not quite black enough for me though.
    But I do want a Berry shade too. Rimmel Desire looks nice.

    Beautiful colour. I struggle to use dark colours as I have such a shaky hand when painting my nails, but pastel colours, like you say, just don't look right on my fingers in this weather! You've painted them so well! xx

    This is a gorgeous colour:)!

  15. 11th October 2012 / 9:13 pm

    the color is as similar as the new essie polish.cute

    such a pretty shade for the season ! xx

    I have to admit, this is pretty much THE perfect A/W shade. I have got one or two berry shades already but I love how deep and rich this one is. It really reminds me of mulled wine, holly berries and other festive treats.

    I've been checking superdrug and boots for more than a week and still can't find this shade! Is it definitely on the shelf now?

  22. 12th October 2012 / 10:09 am

    Such a gorgeous colour, will definitely be picking this up! I've tried this gel range from Bourjois with a brighter red shade and I loved the formula and how professional my nails looked after! xx

    This is such a beautiful colour, especially for the winter months. I really like these Bourjois nail polish, with the gel finish to them.

    I don't know id it's just me but is this a good present for my girlfriend on our anniversary? Or will it count as one of the unusual gifts for women? I mean, she loves to have her nails done and I can't think of anything right now besides that.
