Bourjois Rendez-vous à Paris so laque glossy nail collection


Bourjois Rendez-vous à Paris So Laque Glossy nail enamel collection*
£5.99 available from Boots

Right on cue as we are all reaching for our soft fabrics and summer pastels, Bourjois have launched an adorable range of So Laque nail enamels in an array of pretty, fresh shades. The formula of these polishes is utterly beautiful – opaque in two coats and with a glossy, gel-like finish that means you don’t even need a top coat. I’ve got my grubby mitts on four of the shades to show you today.  

My absolute favourite is 04. Amande Defilé which is described as a minty green with fluorescent accents. It is a milky, pastel green which is ever so similar to Essie’s Mint Candy Apple. 06. Adora-bleu is a stunning bleached blue that definitely has the greatest colour pay-off out of these shades. 07. Coton Sur Ton forms the base of my floral accent nails and is an easy, soft washed-out pink that gives your nails a natural finish. Finally 08. Peach and Love is a lovely harmony of peach and peach tones and makes a great, sandal-worthy pedicure colour. 

Applying all these delicious pastel shades made me feel ridiculously spring-like so I added a floral design to my manicure by using my simple technique demonstrated in this post. I used the same polishes here for the darker pink roses and green leaves as I did in my original post, but particularly loved how this designed look on a lighter base. 

Have you tried any of these new polishes from Bourjois?
