1 Bour­jois Paris So Laque Nail Pol­ish in Bleu Asphalte, £5.99 The brand’s hype:

“En­riched with twice as much vinyl and a com­plex of highly re­flec­tive resins for ul­tra shiny nails with a long-last­ing hold. The fix­ing agent in the for­mula keeps your nails highly re­sis­tant for up to seven days hold.”

This is easy to ap­ply, it’s quite thick and the colour pay off is great af­ter one ap­pli­ca­tion, but I ap­plied two any­way just to be safe. It’s got a good shine to it.

I like the colour, it’s quite un­usual, like a stormy night sky, mak­ing it a good op­tion for au­tumn. How­ever, by day three the shine has def­i­nitely worn off and the edges are start­ing to chip a lit­tle.

By day five the chip­ping is ex­tremely no­tice­able (ex­cept not at all on the pinky nail weirdly). It’s ac­tu­ally a bit em­bar­rass­ing keep­ing such chipped var­nish on, but any­thing in the name of a thor­ough trial!

Ver­dict: I loved the colour and the shine of day one and how easy it was to ap­ply and get a good colour pay­off, how­ever, the chip­ping can­not be ig­nored. Also the for­mula seems to re­ally high­light ridges in the nails.
