Bourjois So Laque Rendez-Vous a Paris

Bourjois have launched some gorgeous new colours in their So Laque nail polish range for Spring Summer. There are eight new shades available from classy neutrals, to pretty pastels, to a gorgeous bright coral red. They are (above, from left to right, top to bottom), Oh So Rose, Amande Defile, Coton Sur Ton, Prepp-hibiscus, Taupe Modele, Peach and Love, BC Beige and Adorea Bleu. 

We got two shades to try out, which just so happened to be my favourite two shades of the bunch, Adorea Blue* and Peach and Love*. 

These have a really nice formula - they're not at all streaky which is usually a problem with pastel polishes. The polish goes on easily in a thick layer but dries quickly to a high shine, glossy finish. Wear time isn't great for me, that may be more to do with the condition of my nails than the polish, but you can definitely take the 'up to ten days wear' claim with a pinch of salt.

Adorea Bleu is really the most gorgeous bright I-can't-stop-looking-at-my-nails colour that reminds me a lot of Essie's Bikini So Teeny. Definitely recommend! Priced at €7.99, these are available now. 

Bourjois are celebrating 150 years in business this year so expect some exciting launches from the brand in 2013. They're also having a look back at the evolution of their manicure products. I love stuff like this! 

In the late nineteenth century, Bourjois entered the Hand Beauty market, launching powders and creams to polish the nails, and Emailline, the ancestor of coloured enamel.
From their 1897 catalogue, Emailline, a pink-red transparent liquid presented in a bottle to be applied with a brush to colour the nails.
The first Bourjois nail enamel was born under the name Vernis Luxus. In 1927 it was available in 3 shades (white, pink and red) in the form of two bottle, an enamel and a solvent.
