Thursday Review: Bourjois 1 Second Nail Gel Formula

First off how pretty are these polishes! 

Hiya and welcome to another Thursday review. As a mummy I'm always looking for the quickest most efficient beauty products on the market, I usually have a toddler round my ankles so time is not easily given. I purchased some new polish's (just for a change) from ASOS (ow another surprise). I really liked the look of these mainly as they had been labelled as Revel's 2013 beauty award winner's and also for the gel silicone like formula. I will give you some truth and tell you I usually hate Bourjois polish's as I find they chip really easily. But you know what they say second chances! So that is how these cute polishes landed in my basket, ow and the fact they were on offer to £1.50 from £5.99.

I always use a bottom coat before using any polish so please keep that in mind. First off the small stubby brushes on these polishes make application super easy and quick, they are the most well designed applicator's I've ever used. One stroke and your nail is complete. These two glitter polishes only needed one coat so much so that even though I did a second I couldn't tell the difference. By the time I finished my first hand the first finger I did was not sticky, yes that's right it had dryed. I still cant believe how quick these became solid it was almost instant. All these points put together made me one happy lady. 

The next day came and life as a mum went on as usual. Washing, cleaning, bathing and tidying seriously took its tole on my nails and by the end of the first day they were chipped........ badly! Bourjois striked again. I was really expecting a little longer wear from these especially since they are classed as a gel formula and glitter based, I actually thought I was going to have to fight to get the glitter off. You know the whole ripped cotton wool pad situation.

I did the gold which is shade Oh My Gold on my accent nail and the pink shade Champagne Shower on the others. There such pretty colours for a night out in the spring and summer but unfortunately just didn't last the test of time for me. I would use them again if I was rushing out of the house though. The application and drying time just can not be beaten. You can pick up Champagne Shower here and Oh My Gold here if you want to give them a try. Unfortunately the colour does not pay off enough in these pictures as out of the ordinary for Britain the sun was beaming through the window's of my house making glitter picture taking very difficult indeed.

Have you tried these polishes? What did you think? Any tips to make them last a little longer?
