Bourjois So Laque! Nail Polishes

I saw these in a magazine so right away I went looking for one.

I really liked it instantly, it is really shiny like patent leather!  It is called "Blue Fabuleaux".  I don't know if it's similar to Illamasqua's "Force" polish, which I wanted for a while now. I've been looking for this shade of blue- it's just so perfectly blue!  

The formula is so nice and creamy, it applies really well.  I did two coats and it was perfect.  No streaks or uneven spots.  Some people might like 3 coats for the lighter shades like the pink below but I preferred it with just two.  It is such a pretty shade to use with any type of nail art or decal too.  

The finish on these is so pretty, it really does look like a patent leather, and it already looks thick enough with two coats so that's why I didn't do three.  I went back to purchase these other two shades, Blue Violet and Rose Merveille, and they are equally gorgeous.  They really have a huge colour selection of these, they even had yellow and chartreuse.

I also love that the caps are the colour, they are the only bottles I have like that so it's incredibly easy to get to them even in a bottom drawer.  

I think I remember seeing this purple somewhere too, but I forgot by now.  I love the shade, it's a lavender-periwinkle, very pretty!  

Of the two formulas, I'd definitely prefer the So Laque! even though the other one is not too bad, just a little thinner and less shiny.  The only downside is they didn't last the 7 days advertised, but it doesn't matter that much to me since I tend to change my nails often anyway.  The shades are beautiful and they apply well so they're good purchases for me!
