Nails- Bourjois Nail Art Kit || Review ||


Hey everyone!

I've been meaning to post these nails for quite some time now, but keep forgetting as my nails are constantly changing like the weather [and my feelings, and my choice of favorite lipstick..]. I was out shopping with my Mam for some new nail polish, and we came across a great offer by Bourjois in Boots. Although a drugstore type brand , I've always considered it to be luxurious, as when I was younger I bought a nail polish from them and thought it was fab! It was 2 polishes for €11 AND including a free nail art kit! Of course, we jumped at the bargain, and I couldn't wait to try it out. We bought the shades 02 Prepp'hibiscus [coral] and 03 Amande défilé [mint].  I'm quite critical when it comes to nail art kits, and I've always been dubious of nail 'stickers'. The kit contains stickers, stencils and a metallic striping tape.

I found the polishes themselves to be beautiful. They lasted right up through exams-over a week! Minimal chipping and a high gloss finish. Definitely worth the money. The stencils were easy to use and ensured a straight edge, but once used, you can;t use them again unfortunately [note: you get alot in the pack so that's ok!]. The stickers [surprisingly] stayed on for approximately 5 days. This is a considerably long time for stickers to last! The metallic striping tape looks so professional and glamorous when applied, but it is a bit fiddly and tricky to use. It peeled off within a day or two, so that was bit disappointing. 

Below is how I styled the polished and the kit;

  1. Those colors are perfect together! When I saw the bottles next to each other, I wasn't sure. But the finished product is perfect. Your nails are gorgeous.
