Bourjois 1 Seconde Nail Polish

I picked up the Bourjois 1 Seconde Nail Polish in the shade "Bleu Water" the 40% off cosmetics sale at Priceline a couple of weeks ago. It claims to have silicone gel texture which makes application very easy and gives that gel salon finish.

The bottle is so unique which was what drew me to it in priceline and it has textured patches on the tall lid so you can twist it open. As soon as I saw this colour, I knew that I wanted it because I don't own this type of nail polish colour in my collection. It's light blue and it's definitely a fun one to wear now that it's summer in Australia.

One of the reasons I really like this nail polish is because the brush expands to a fan-like shape and fits the shape of your nail so effortlessly and saves a lot of time by painting your nail in one swipe {hence the name "1 Seconde"}. I was really impressed with how pigmented it was with one coat but I decided to do another 2 coats to make sure the colour would last and not chip. 

The bottle claims that the nail polish dries in 50 seconds but I don't think thats true. It does dry pretty quickly compared to other nail polishes but not 50 seconds fast. I would wait around 2-3 minutes before applying another layer. I used my OPI base coat and Revlon Colorstay top coat and it lasted about 2-3 days which is pretty good for me because I somehow always manage to chip my nails within the first 24 hours of wearing it.

Overall I do like this nail polish and I can't wait to wear it more in summer. Bourjois don't have a big range of nail polish colours however they have some unusual colours that aren't available in other brand displays like revlon and rimmel etc. It retails for $12AUD which is the average price of nail polishes at priceline.

Have you tried Bourjois 1 Seconde Nail Polish?
