A colour on my tips that isn’t of orange tinged red decent? I know, am I feeling ok? But after spotting an eyewatering shade of aquamarine on Lisa Eldridge’s nails in her latest video offering I was inspired and riffled through my collection in search of something similar. And here’s what I came up – Bourjois’ 1 Seconde Nail Enamel in Turquoise Block*.

And what a beaut does this look on the nails? A pumped-up Essie’s Mint Candy Apple with not a hint of pastel about it, just an unapologetic hit of ‘can’t stop staring at it’ turquoise. Colour well and truly fallen head over heels for, it’s the formulation that really steals my heart. This stuff delivers opaque coverage in one coat. Yep, seriously. Now I slicked on two coats this time, but I had a little time on my hands. All served on a slightly softened at the edges square brush; I don’t think I’ve ever been able to lacquer a colour on so accurately. £5.99 from Boots, I’ve already picked up another  shade. #SorryImNotSorry.

    gorgeous polish! if only we had bourjois in Germany, i always have to drive to France. :D

  • Élyse Betters

    Haha! I actually went out and bought Slapper right after watching Lisa’s video. The colour isn’t as vivid in person, though. Must be her fancy light setup! Therefore, I’ll have to give this Turquoise Block a whirl. <3

    That is a lovely colour Bourjois do such great products :)

    I have this one and Blue No blues. They are super gorgeous. I kind of prefer Essie brushes a little bit more because they are more flexible. But love both.

    Turquoise Block is a stunner. Heard nothing but good things about Bourjois nailpolishes- Amelia from Liana Beauty post about them left me wanting to purchase the whole range. Opaque coverage in 1 coat? Gimme. For a mere £5.99 my local Boots can expect my visit pretty damn soon. :)

  • Kati Palin

    That is a gorgeous colour, love it!

  • clairabelle0306

    Such a gorgeous colour, I think I might have to add it to my quite large turquoise collection :)

  • Chloe M

    You must stop doing nail posts. Every polish you recommend I buy, I picked up this today- can’t wait to paint my nails Sunday night and I’m well on my way to owning all the Rimmel Pro Salon shades, eek.

    Stop it before I have no money to live.Who’d thought growing my nails would cost so much.
