Bourjois is one of my favourite drugstore brands; you might have read my rave reviews about their foundations before (as seen here & here). But it’s not just their foundations I love, even when it comes to nail polishes and their seasonal collections they never dissapoint! In March they launched their latest Spring 2013 collection to their So Laque nail polish range. The ‘Rendez-vous a Paris’ Collection adds eight brand new shades all inspired by the super chic French capital.
The ‘Rendez-vous a Paris’ collection has something for everyone featuring nudes, neutrals, pastels and a pop of coral red. For me Spring is all about creamy, pastel colours so the shades in this collection are spot on!
I got to choose four shades from the new collection to play with and these were my picks. From left to right; Adora-bleu, BC Beige, Peach and Love and Oh So Rose.
Such pretty and soft colours for Spring don’t you think?
The full Rendez-vous a Paris collection consists of the following shades;
- Oh So Rose (01) – a soft pale pink
- Prepp-hibiscus (02) – a radiant, preppy red with touches of coral
- BC Beige (03) – an elegant neutral grey-beige
- Amande Defile (04) – a soft minty green
- Taupe Modele (05) – a chic taupe grey with a violet tone
- Adora-bleu (06) – a cute bright bleached blue
- Coton sur ton (07) – a nude, very bleached out pink
- Peach and love (08) – a fun pastel pinky peach
It was a hard choosing between BC Beige and Taupe Modele, because I’m a big fan of taupe nail polishes but BC Beige just looked that tad bit different and lighter than the other taupes I already own so decided on that one in the end; and it’s a winner! It’s a lovely bleached out, milky version of your general taupe; making it perfect for Spring.
So Laque nail polishes are easy to apply, smooth and ultra glossy. The formula is actually enriched with vinyl to produce a mirror shine effect which means you don’t necessarily need to worry about putting on a top coat and still have shiny nails!
The Bourjois Rendez-vous a Paris polishes cost £5.99 each and are available now at Boots or Superdrug.
What is your favourite of the bunch and are you feeling the pastel look for Spring?
