This is the first polish I've tried from the So Laque Glossy line from Bourjois although I do own a couple of polishes with the really long handles. Those I like. This one, not so much.

First off the packaging, so much better! I can stand these properly in my Helmer unlike the others which I have to lie down. I really didn't like the brush though and found it made the already horrible formula so much harder to apply. The bristles are quite hard so they don't flatten to the shape of the nail meaning you can't really get a neat edge by the cuticle.

Even after three coats a few nails were still patchy which I was disappointed about. If a polish needs more than two coats then it's pretty rare for me to reach for it again. I'd prefer to just find a similar colour with a better formula. It took a while to dry and bubbled quite badly once I put the top coat on.

The colour is gorgeous and just the right mint ice cream colour I was after but is it really worth all the hype it got? No and I wish I'd done a bit more research into it instead of just looking at the colour. Here's to hoping the other two colours I bought are better.

  11. This is a gorgeous colour, what a shame the formula wasn't great!
    I find polishes bubble if you shake them, it's best to wait ten minutes before applying if you have to shake - you probably already know that but worth suggesting just in case!
