New Bourjois Violine Hypnotique - On my Nails ALL YEAR

I make no secret of my love for the French brand Bourjois, their polishes - to me - are one of the most underrated polish lines on sale today. For years now the 1 seconde 18 holo glitter has been my go to and I never thought I'd like a polish more - then came 34 - Violine Hynotique. 

As with every polish in the 1 Seconde range, the brush is short but splays wide so that you can, if you wanted to, coat your entire nail in just one stroke - though admittedly that takes some practice. Pictured above is two coats and no topcoat to show the true shine you can achieve with this deep burgundy beaut. 

These photos don't even come close to doing the rich and luxurious metallic burgundy colour justice. Once the light catches the polish on your fingers it comes to life with the tiniest burgundy shimmer that gives depth and shine to the colour.

4 Days Later

Because Christmas and the New Year didn't involve a lot more than unwrapping Quality Street, Violine Hypnotique had an easier trial than most but this (inexplicably fuzzy) pic was taken 4 days after application. On the third day, I used a coat of Sally Hansen's Insta Dri to add more shine but nonetheless this is seriously impressive. 

My mark of a winner when it comes to polish though? Three times I cleaned Violine Hypnotique off just to reapply it again instantly - that and every other nurse in A&E asking where I'd gotten it. This one's a winner, Bourjois, no doubt about it.  

You'll get Bourjois Violine Hypnotique on shelves from January 22nd but more than likely Boots will smash that date so I'm advising you keep your eyes peeled from now - it's definitely worth your while.

Not at all Cindy, I'm using it over Sally Hansen's Miracle Cure as I'm hoping for exactly that but nope, this is a good 'un x

I love this nail varnish. Going to have to get myself to a Boots asap to pick it up!
