Okay so it must be getting really old for me to keep mentioning how my laptop crashed and ate all my photos, but yeah, I did a whole lovely mani with these and lost the images, hence the nail wheel swatches!
Bourjois have added 10 new glossy polishes to their so laque range in some lovely spring shades. I picked a lovely pastel mint green and baby pink in the shades *almande défilé and *oh so rose. I have to agree that they are very glossy - you can see the shine in the photos - but I always add topcoat over my polish anyway.
I'm in love with the mint shade, which is opaque in two coats, although I also swatched it with three just to see.
Oh so rose looks so promising in the bottle but I misjudged it as being an opaque shade - it's really quite transparent and even after three coats I could still see through it. I'm not a fan of seeing my nail line through my polish so when I wore this colour I added two coats of an almost white base coat underneath three coats of polish to get something closer to an opaque finish - that took a fair bit of patience and effort so you can see why I was annoyed to lose those photos! As this colour is so transparent it would be good if you just wanted to give your nails a subtle polished and glossy look without full on colour.
As oh so rose is possibly the palest in the range, and alande défilé gave good opaque coverage, I think the rest of the colours would probably be quite opaque too. I'm thinking about picking up the pale nude (bc beige) - and the blue (adora bleu).
Which is your favourite shade in this collection?
