Bourjois 1 Second Gel: Turquoise Block

I am nothing if not predictable, so to say I love a turquoise shade of anything will be far from shocking. But hey, at least I’m consistent! This is my latest turquoise love in my life is ‘Turquoise Block’ from the Bourjois 1 second gel range.

The colour is a properly vibrant head turner – a true turquoise that’s creamy and bright, but would work just as well with muted greys and blacks for Autumn as it would with other bright colours in warmer months.

I really like the brush and formula of this polish range. My only niggle being the huge lid makes storage a pain as it doesn’t fit in my helmer drawers and is so much taller than any other polish in my collection that it can be a bit awkward to find it a home. But that storage-issue aside, these are absolutely fab. Creamy, two-coats to perfect and then glossy when dry.

There’s also a new bright blue from this range that is rather special too – so if you like blue nails like I do, keep your eyes peeled for a post on that shade soon!

    Such a lovely vibrant colour! You’re right, I think this would actually work quite well for Autumn! I need to get my hands on this.

    Oooh this is a lovely shade! I’ve been put off buying them because of the ridiculously tall lids, but may have to get this one..
