Bourjois So Laque Nail Varnish Swatches!

I’ve had these polishes for a while now and I have been loving them recently to add a bit of colour to the dreary, chilly winter days.  These three polishes are part of the Bourjois So Laque Ultra Shine range and they come in 7 different vibrant shades.


44 Bleu Model – This is my favourite out of the three, its a gorgeous creamy, bright baby blue.  I normally detest blue nail varnish on my fingers but I really like this one.  The first layer of this comes out quite streaky but the second coat normally evens it out a lot more.

42 Orange Creation – I’m really not sure how I feel about orange nail polish in general, this shade in particular is so garish and bright, but I guess its different and unique!

40 Violet Couture – I think this is a beautiful colour but am put off that you can ever so slightly see the whites of my nails underneath the purple (this also happened with a purple No7 one, here).  However I think this is a gorgeous purple that almost seems sophisticated.  The second photograph below is in sunlight so you can see how shiny it is!

What I think – I love how bright and daring these nail polishes are but because of that I’m a bit scared to wear them!  Saying that, I keep finding myself lusting after the mustard yellow polish in the range whenever I pass the stand in Boots!  These three polishes do live up to their name ‘Ultra Shine’, they are beautifully shiny and don’t require a topcoat.
I have to sing praise to Bourjois for the formula of these polishes too, they are intensely pigmented and need two coats max to be incredibly colourful. 

These nail varnishes retail in Boots and Superdrug for £5.99 – which I personally think is a little pricey, but the quality makes up for it!

What’s your favourite Bourjois nail polish shade?  Do you own an orange nail varnish?!

    I might have to go and hanve a look at the yellow shade in this collection, I've been wanting a nice mustard nail polish. I'm not usually one to wear such bright colours on my nails but I do occasionally like to wear them to brighten up a monochrome outfit 🙂

    I love the Violet Couture shade, it looks gorgeous on your nails! I've never tried Bourjois nail varnish, I guess I've always stayed away from the price tag! xx
