Nails: Mint Madness

If this isn't the prettiest mint green you've ever seen... then I just don't know what to say to you. We can't be friends, sorry.

The shade is 04 Amande Défilé, one of the new Bourjois SO Laque Glossy shades (they're all such pretty pastel shades that you MUST go and see them in person). It's the most perfect mint chocolate chip ice-cream kinda colour right?! It's love. 
The formula could be better in my (honest) opinion... I found it to be a tad gloopy and hard to apply. I needed 3 coats for a perfect finish and with a not so speedy drying time, it was difficult not to smudge my hard work. I'm not sure if I have a dud bottle but I may add a little nail polish remover to thin it out and make it easier to apply.

Despite it's downfalls I can't deny it's a gorgeous colour and I haven't been able to stop staring at my super glossy (almost gel like) nails. Unfortunately a major washing up session left me with two big chips on day 3 but to be honest I'm so besotted I don't mind. Just remove and then re-apply. Forever. 


  1. A beautiful shade and even more beautiful photos!
