Bourjois Melon.


Finally another nail post, I think I'd actually ran out of summer colours for a minute there and was thinking of painting my nails a deep red in protest of the heat. But alas, that never happened because my momma kindly donated me this orange/peach colour from Bourjois as apparently it's too bright for her! It's a funny 'un, like if you'd gotten a bottle of neon orange and added a few drops of white to give it more of a pastel tone. That's the best way I can describe it, take it or leave it ;)

I'm not too impressed with the formula I have to say, I painted one layer on at night (thankfully they do dry exceptionally fast) to do the second the next afternoon, but it had already chipped! I went ahead and painted the second coat anyway and added a topcoat to be safe and add shine, as it wasn't exceptionally glossy on it's own.

The colour's nice (the kind that looks great with a tan), the brushes are amazing but once again a bog standard formula that I think is rather expensive for what it is. I'd rather buy the much cheaper & better performing Mavala polishes, or splurge on Butter London (Black Knight will be mine one day, promise).

What do you think of Bourjois Melon?

Not sure why I painted one finger nail gold.. bit of pizazz?

  1. I really love the colour, but I've also found that Bourjois's formulars aren't great!

  2. Ah, it's good to see a review that isn't completely gushing about these polishes, I tried one and found the formula a bit blah!

    The colour's pretty nice though :)

  8. I've never tried Bourjois polishes, such a shame about the formula but a beautiful colour! I've been meaning to add a softer orange to my collection for a while. x

  13. It's only recently I even considered that I'd ever wear an orange nail polish on my fingernails, and this seems like a nice alternative! Such a gorgeous colour, it's a shame about the formula!

  14. The colour is gorgeous but I begrudge paying a lot for an average formula.

  15. LOVE this color! Essie has some super cute corals/oranges and their formula doesn't chip right away.
