I am back. I am actually back. This time for real. I have been missing this blog for far too long and this time, I will not quit. I also have a new blog design – new header, new fonts, bigger images. A lot of things have happened in the past few years which I’ll slowly reveal throughout future posts. Without further ado, this is today’s post. A lovely mint nail polish.
I was introduced to Bourjois back when I was very little. I remember that my mother had one of their small round blushes and that she would take it everywhere. She would also let me play with it because I was incredibly drawn to it due to its strong, pink color. I bought this nail polish on one of my trips to Croatia. As it turns out, Bourjois stopped selling their products in Austria a few years ago, so I’ll have to stock up on anything I like in Croatia or order it online.
04 Amande defile is a pretty mint color. Sadly, and I’m going to say this right at the beginning, the color payoff isn’t that great. I’m used to applying 2 coats, everything above I consider sheer. This took 3 coats to get this opaque color, so I have to count that as a con. When applied though, the color looks great. Not too green, not too blue. I love pairing mints with gold, so I always wear gold jewellery with a mint manicure.
I’d say that, considering I applied this nail polish yesterday, and that I can already see some scratches on some of my nails, the longevity of the nail polish is not great, even though three coats were applied. Can you recommend a good mint color with great color payoff and quality?
