Glamour's May Beauty Giveaway Win: Bourjois So Laque Glossy Nail Polishes

super glossy nail polish in pink and neutral

I don't consider myself a hugely 'lucky' person but I do believe that we make our own luck and it makes sense that you can't win prizes if you never enter competitions. I don't know how many of you knew about Glamour's Big May Beauty Giveaway where they had prizes for every day of the month. Ironically, despite entering every single day I won the prize that was for the very first day of the month, two Bourjois So Laque Glossy Nail Polishes. I am, however, thrilled to have won anything. Winning something feels just like receiving a gift and with the time I've been having lately it feels lovely to have something (however small) to smile about. The two colours I recieved were Peach and Love (a gorgeous pink shade) and BCBeige (the perfect neutral beige).

Despite looking gorgeously glossy on the nails they formula leaves something to be desired. They don't apply as smoothly as I would like and they don't last terribly long when worn without a top coat. I'm glad that I didn't pay for them but they aren't being shut away anywhere anytime soon as I can't quite express how much I like the colours. I find it especially difficult to wear light pinks, I have a strong yellow undertone to my skin which is especially apparent in my hands. Most pale pinks leave me looking a little sickly but Peach and Love is just bright enough to not only be wearable but to be extremely pretty. BCBeige isn't quite as much of a find but I think that it's a wonderful neutral shade and I will be wearing it a lot over the coming months. Bourjois So Laque Nail Polishes are available from Boots for £5.99*.

  2. They look like lovely colours, but if the formula is a bit pants I'll stay clear. I won lots of giveaways last year, not any recently though. Too many people and not enough luck hah! x
