Autumn Nails!

We’re now in October-  the heating is on and my Autumnal purchases are well underway! So far my wardrobe is made up of a lot of Grey, Burgundy and Plum, so is my Autumn make up collection!

This week I bought Bourjois 1 Seconde gel polish, in the shade “Violine Hypnotique” to get my nails looking ready! This colour is a really glossy, deep reddy purple- very vintage gothic! When it catches the sun the red shines through a lot more, whereas in the day it looks a lot more plum. Very autumnal and can be worn with outfits both day and night!

The polish texture is lovely too; it’s thick, not at all watery – so it really doesn’t need more than one coat and although it doesn’t literally dry in one second flat, you’d be amazed at how quickly it does dry, with a really glossy shine and gel like finish.

The brush is brilliant; it’s short and wide which makes painting the nail very easy,  just two brushstrokes and the nail is covered! Although the actual brush is small and square, the brush handle is actually quite long and curved, a really comfortable size which makes guiding the brush easier and the brush strokes much more precise; I made so much less mess with this than I usually do with other polishes!

Overall I really, really like the quality of the polish – so I’ll probably invest in a few more colours; but I also love the colour and it’s perfectly coordinating with all my new wardrobe purchases!

What do you think of this colour? What colours are you rocking this A/W?
