Lianne Loves.. This weeks nails [Bourjois 1 Seconde - no24]

This week I went for quickness when choosing my nail polish.. and pulled out an old faithful..

Bourjois 1 Seconde polish - in no24

What Bourjois say..

'1 Seconde nail enamel is ultra quick to apply thanks to its patented fan effect brush which adapts to the size of each nail. The one-coat formula, enriched with silicon, dries in 50 seconds, leaving you with beautiful ultra-shiny nails and plenty of time.'

Well, I've always loved the wide, fan-shaped brush with this nail polish, it literally is shaped to fit your nail so that you get an even finish in just one swipe. It does just take one second, or maybe slightly longer if your nail application is anything like mine, particularly on the right hand! :)

Bourjois 1 Seconde - no24 [before]

No24 is a black shade, with a slight shimmer, depending on what kind of light you're in. The picture doesn't do it justice, but I used 2 coats [although it does say you can get away with 1, I always find 2 gives a better finish, and since 1 coat was so quick.. :)] and finished with top coat.

Since it only takes one swipe, you're not left with any unsightly brush lines, but a perfect, even finish. The consistency is quite thick, but easy to work with. As far as application goes - this is one of my fave products to work with!

Bourjois 1 Seconde - no24 [after]

This is how my nails looked after 7 days. Was slightly gutted at how quickly it started to chip, especially since I was off work this week, I thought I'd get away with tip top nails for a bit longer, but not with this polish. But it doesn't claim to be hard wearing or long lasting, but to give you shiny nails, quickly and effortlessly, in which it does, very well! So it pretty much does what it sets out to do. If you're looking for a polish that is quick to use and leaves you with shiny, even finish, try this!

Bourjois 1 Seconde polish is currently available in 8 shades, for £5.99 in store and online here at Boots.
