Bourjois Laser Toppings Nail Polish Review & Swatches

‘Top Coat’ nail polishes have been super popular recently with lots of brands bringing out different formulations (such as confetti, glitter & opal top coats) to switch up your usual plain nail style.  The most recent is by Bourjois with their new Laser Toppings, to add a bit of sparkle and glitter to everyday nails.

Very sorry for this picture heavy post – I just think they are too beautiful not to photograph!

So Laque Glossy in BC Beige & Laser Toppings in Sun Scale

So Laque Glossy in Adora Bleu & Laser Toppings in Blue Neon
Violet Couture &  Laser Toppings in Aqua Purple

The Laser Toppings include tiny little shiny, metallic strips in a clear base which remind me a little of the Nails Inc Feather collection.  These can be used alone & built up to create a full-on opaque glitter nail, but as you can see above these toppings really stand out and come alive when paired with a base coat of the same shade.  The Beige & Sun Scale combination is my current favourite for an everyday nail art look.  I recommend these if you’re looking to jazz up basic blocks of colour on the nails with something a little more interesting than just plain glitter.

These are available now for £5.99 each in your local Boots & Superdrug stores.

Will you be purchasing these babies?  What’s your favourite current nail top-coat?

    These nail polishes look really fun! I got one similar from Claire's a little while ago, they're great in the Autumn/Winter time! 🙂

    These look so cute! Will definitely want to pick up Sun Scale – would be so pretty as an accent nail top coat. My favourite top coat at the moment is the Maybelline Polka Dot polish in Chalkdust – its a clear polish with black and white speckles meaning it looks great over any polish!

    Loving the Blue Neon one, looks like it would be fab for 'night out nails' 🙂 xx

    I bought Neon Blue and Aqua Purple and they are both so pretty. I was only going to pick up one but I just couldn't decide between then so I bought both so I could then also get one of the new cream blushes on 3 for 2 🙂

    I love nail top coats. Currently still loving the L'Oreal black/white confetti. Still hate how difficult it is to take them off. I wil check these out! Love the blue one 🙂

    I'm not sure what I think of these, I think I prefer plain glitter! x

    Ooh I don't think I like these… I tried the matte feather effect and it was so hard to layer up just to get a decent finish. I do like the colours though xx
