07 Coton Sur Ton
04 Amande Défilé
01 Oh So Rose
Bourjois have been a go-to drugstore brand for me for I would the last year or so and continuously coming out with new products to fit in with the latest trends they never seem to disappoint. I absolutely love their lipsticks from the Rouge Edition Collection and when I saw a press release of their new "Rendez-vous a Paris" Collection, which holds some really beautiful shades of nail varnish in line with Spring Summer 2013 and taking inspiration from Paris, I was extremely excited and couldn't wait to try them.
The collection is made up of 8 glossy shades and an Easy Nail Art Kit. Perfect for the Easter Bank Holiday, I chose to try out four pastels of the collection; 07 Coton Sur Ton*, 03 BCBeigé*, 04 Amande Défilé* and 01 Oh So Rose*. They are absolutely stunning shades and although I have tried to, I can't pick a favourite between them. I was a little disappointed by the opacity of Oh So Rose and Coton Sur Ton, because as you may be aware, I love an opaque Nude and found them to be a little too sheer and for me, pretty hard work to build up a full on block of colour. I think they're intended to be possibly more of a natural, manicure shade which is still extremely pretty but I personally will most likely continue to build them up with a fair few coats.
Application of these polishes is really nice, although again, I do prefer BCBeige and Amande Défilé, probably for the same reason as above. I'm always extremely impressed with Bourjois nail polishes, I always love the finish and these are no different. They're not as gel like as the previous Bourjois polishes I have tried, but they do give the lovely glossy finish that they promise to.
I'm really keen to try 08 Peach and Love which looks to be a slightly darker, creamy Peach Pink and think that like with these four shades, will look lovely when the sun eventually comes out.
The Rendez-vous a Paris Collection polishes cost £5.99 and are available to buy now in Boots and Superdrug.
