Bourjois Paris - Dangerous Wish


Bonjour! (it seemed fitting to start this post in French as the polish I'm showing you today is from Bourjois Paris)

I'm currently still settling in in the new appartment and haven't been able to do new nail art (though I'm working on a review right now, so expect that soon!), so I decided to give you a post that has been sitting in my Draft space - until now!


In July's polish haul post you read how I bought Dangerous Wish from Bourjois Paris - I must say, I really like this polish. I used two thick coats, no top coat for my swatches. Dangerous Wish is a black jelly with gold holographic hexes in it (two sizes). It applied really easy, the glitter spread out nicely and it dried fast (not the 50 seconds fast the bottle promises, but I never believe those things anyway). Plus I got great coverage with just two coats.


Sorry for the odd hand pose - those Bourjois bottles are really hard to pose with due to their odd shape! All of these pictures were taken in my light box with artificial lighting, but I suspect the holo will be even more visible in sun light! (I took all these pictures on a cloudy day so no sun for Dangerous Wish sadly).

A blurry picture to finish this post, so you can see the holographic goodness more clearly:


Sparkle sparkle! I think Dangerous Wish was part of the 2013 Halloween collection from Bourjois Paris, and I really liked it when it first came out but this particular polish was sold out everywhere then! I'm glad I found it (on sale!), as it was really easy to use and is so pretty!

What do you think of Dangerous Wish? Does anyone own any other polishes by Bourjois Paris? I only own this one and a golden leaf topper so I'm curious how their crème polishes are :)

Thanks for reading! ;)

  2. I do own a few shades from Bourjois (I rarely buy french brands haha) and I never really liked them, I do not like their formula actually :/

    1. Ooh that's interesting to hear! I did like this one but the formula is definitely different from creme polishes :) I think I'll try a Bourjois creme sometime and see how I find it :)

  4. That looks like a wonderful glitter! Maybe I should make a trip across the border to see if they have this in Canada--I've seen this brand there but not closer to home.

    1. Thanks Karen! It's a shame when you can't find a certain brand in your country :/ But I always find it exciting when you can find it in another country, so you can say "yeah I got this from Italy" or whatever :D

  5. I don't have any cremes by the brand. This one is murky and shiny ;) I usually rarely wear black on nails.
