One of the latest new products launched by Bourjois are their 10 Days Nail Polishes, which are supposed to last for up to 5 days - kidding, kidding: up to 10 days. Of course the not-so-small-print on the back of the bottle says: Up to 10 days hold including touch up. Thanks for clearing that up!
|Excuse the sloppy application - It's not me, it's the brush (Ok, it's me and the brush)|
The colour that I got is No. 17 - a dark raspberry red without any shimmer, nothing terribly unique but still a pretty colour. You can see more colours available on the Bourjois website. Now I can't really judge the long-wearing claims of the polish yet as I've just painted my nails (Update: the nail polish started chipping on the fourth day. I think that was quite good as I didn't apply a topcoat, but definitely nothing outstanding.) however I can say that the texture of the polish is quite thin (thinner than most OPI polishes) and the pigmentation of this particular colour is really good so I only needed to use two coats (to be completely honest I don't really bother with nail polishes that require 3 coats or more). Also the finish is very glossy, I didn't need to use a topcoat at all.
Of course there is a "but" and in this case it's the weird angled brush which in my opinion makes the application much more difficult than a regular brush. Also, I've noticed that with my brush the bristles are not cut completely straight and that there are some longer bristles which then help to make an even bigger mess.
The Bourjois 10 Days Nail Polishes cost a little bit over 5€ and currently there is a special offer in some of the Slovenian stores (DM and Müller): a free full-size nail polish remover with the purchase of every new nail polish which makes it quite a good deal in my opinion.
Has anyone else tried these new nail polishes? Please tell me I'm not the only klutz who can't propertly apply this polish!
