Pale Pink Nails Are Having A Moment


This is so atypical of me, since I'm a blue nail polish devotee, but pale pink nails are having a moment in my stash! From Essie Fiji to the newest Catrice and Essence releases – everything seems to be drenched in pastel, baby/pale pink hues. And I'm completely okay with that – even more than okay! I think these shades are stunning and I love to wear them on my own or paired with some fierce shimmery top coat. This particular pale pink offering is sorta special as it's something completely new from one of my absolute favorite drugstore brands – you know it, I'm referring to Bourjois! I have been a fan of their previous nail polish range but a certain minty green turned out to be a dud so I backed off (and then my Essie obsession kicked in!). Bourjois La Laque Nail Polish in Chair et Tendre (10ml for £6.49) comes in a gorgeously shaped new bottle – when I spotted these nail polishes in my local drugstore, I literally had one of those ‘I have to have them all!’ moments. If I do rank them up to four shades (which is definitely doable), I'll make one of those cute flower petal shapes with their caps for an Instagram snap. The things that fascinate me … Apart from the cute bottle and name, how did the nail polish show on my tests?


Prilicno atipicno za mene, posto sam inace izuzetno lojalna plavim lakovima za nokte, ali trenutno prolazim kroz fazu blijedo/puderasto ruzicastih nijansi koje ne skidam sa svojih noktica. Od Essie Fiji laka pa do ljetnih noviteta iz Catrice i Essence brendova – apsolutno je svaki manikir koji sam napravila bio uronjen u pastelne, baby pink nijanse. I to mi je sasvim uredu – cak i vise od toga! Zaista sam iznenadjena time koliko sam se pronasla u ovom stilu manikira. Obicno se odlucujem da ovakve lakove nosim bas jednostavno onakve kakvi jesu ili ih ukrasim nekim opasno dobrim shimmerastim nadlakom. Konkretno je lak sa fotografija poseban posto je novitet koji nam dolazi svjeze postavljen na police obliznjih drogerija a kreacija je jednog od meni apsolutno najdrazih drogerijskih brendova – znate o kome je rijec, meni dragom Bourjoisu! Bila sam prilicno zadovoljna prethodnom postavom lakova, sve dok nisam naisla na mint zeleni lak koji se pokazao prilicno losim i tu sam se zaustavila (a potom je zapocela moja opsesija Essie lakovima – ostalo je historija). Bourjois La Laque lak za nokte u nijansi Chair et Tendre (10ml kosta/ preporucena cijena/ 11,95KM) dolazi upakovan u bocici simpa oblika – cim sam spazila ove lakove u dm-u, doslovno sam imala jedan od onih ‘moram ih imati sve’ momenata. Ukoliko uspijem kolekciju dovesti do broja cetiri (sto, ruku na srce, nece biti pretesko jer su svi divni), vjerovatno cu napraviti fotkicu za Instagram sa njima poredanim tako da oblik cepova sacinjava latice cvijeta. Nekada se iznenadim stvarima koje me fasciniraju … Osim simpaticne bocice i naziva, kako se sam lak pokazao na mom testiranju?

You'll be glad to hear that La Laque Nail Polish in Chair et Tendre is absolutely fantastic! It is one of those thick nail polish formulas which offer a really good opaqueness. I need only two coats to get completely even application and the more I think about it, the texture of this polish is remarkably reminiscent of Essie nail polishes. The thickness, the opaqueness, pigmentation etc. The only downside would be that the first coat applies streaky but the second one completely evens it out – the same happens with several Essie shades! The brush is regular sized and shaped – I think a fatter, flatter one would do this formulation justice, to be quite honest. The things is that you need to master applying this nail polish so that you avoid flooding your cuticles – try to remove excess and not apply too much. If you get the hang of things, you won't regret it since the drying time with this bad boy is spectacular! I get my both hands done in under 3-4 minutes and they're ready for the second coat. That's fab! Wear is also amazing as I get four days of pristine nails while slight tipwear occurs on the fifth day. No base and/or top coat required! I love that Chair et Tendre translates as a nude/pinky/almost peachy shade depending on the light – you will see that on the photos below. In the first few, light is rather warm and the shade looks peachy but on the last three photos or so the lighting was cooler resulting in a more baby/powder pink shade. It is a true chameleon and it makes my hands look very groomed indeed. I am hoping to get the blue shade from the range as well – it seems electric!

Biti ce vam drago cuti da je  La Laque Nail u nijansi Chair et Tendre jedno fantasticno otkrice! Spada medju lakove guste formulacije koji pruza jako dobro prekrivanje. Potrebna su mi samo dva sloja kako bih postigla besprijekorno ravnomjerno prekrivanje i sto vise razmisljam, tekstura ovog laka me sve vise podsjeca na Essie lakove. Gustoca, prekrivanje, mazivost, pigmentacija itd. Jedina zamjerka koju imam jeste sto se prvi sloj nanosi neravnomjerno i vide se dijelovi koji su nesto tanji dok su drugi potpuno prekriveni ali – drugi sloj ovog laka u potpunosti ujednaci izgled nokatne ploce. Ovakav scenario se desava sa dosta Essie nijansi! Cetkica je prilicno standardnog oblika i velicine – licno mislim da bi deblja, pljosnatija cetkica bolje saradjivala sa formulacijom ovih lakova. Ono sto sa ovom cetkicom treba savladati je da ne pokupite previse laka posto je velika sansa da ce se visak slijevati niz drsku i preci bazu nokta. Pokusajte otkloniti visak laka prislanjajuci cetkicu uz ‘grlo’ bocice. Ako vam ovo nije problem, vjerujte mi da ce se dodatni trud itekako isplatiti! Ovaj lak se susi nevjerovatnom brzinom i bez problema nokti obje ruke budu nalakirani i osuseni unutar 3-4 minute te spremni za drugi sloj. Mislim da je ovo fantasticno! Trajanje je takodjer jako dobro posto obicno postigne cetiri dana bez ostecenja dok petog dana pocinjem primjecivati tragove nosenja na ivicama nokta. Pri tome uopste nisam koristila bazni lak niti nadlak. Dopada mi se sto nijansa Chair et Tendre pod jednim svjetlom izgleda bas nudasto, pod drugim puderasto a pod trecim breskvasto. Vidjeti cete i na fotografijama da nekada izgleda hladnije a nekada toplije. Pravi je mali kameleon i uopste nije dosadan te cini da ruke djeluju njegovano. Nadam se pocastiti plavom nijansom koja izgleda elektricno!
