Once upon a time I used to be a nail biter. I’ve tried several times before to kick the habit, having often looked at my own stubby horrid sore looking nails and yearned to have more feminine, groomed and glamorous talons. Recently, however, I’ve been doing quite well, and my nails are starting...

ProQuick to apply, nice finish

ConsNot quite 1 second

I don't paint my nails very often - mainly due to the fact that as soon as I've come into contact with water it starts to flake off and look awful. As I'm a bit of a clean freak and like to wash my hair everyday (yes - I know it's not good for your hair) it seems like a waste of time to spend...

I seem to have thousands of different colours and brands of nail polishes in my house, I lose track. I find one I like in a shop, take it home, only to find that already have that exact same brand and colour! I really should have a good sort out. One of my favourite brands of nail polishes is...

“Well worth the money!”

published 12/08/2011

ProEasy and fast to apply. It lasts!

ConsPrice

It isn't very often that I get down to the last little drip of a bottle of nail varnish, but I have gone nail painting crazy with my bottles of Bourjois 1 seconde nail varnish. I didn't buy my lot myself, they were a Christmas gift from my boyfriend and when I saw the price of them, I couldn't...

Deja-Vu. Please note, this is the second time I've posted this review, it got lost the first time when Ciao was having it's problems. I emailed Ciao but my review didn't come back and it's been over a month so I've decided to post it again :) This varnish cost me £5.50 from my nearest Boots...

“1 second.....or 2, or 3”

published 28/06/2007

ProEasier to use and lasts long

ConsCurrently only available in a few colours

I’m a big fan of Bourjois products. I use their eye shadows and lipgloss’ practically every day. So after seeing the advert for the new 1 second nail varnish I thought I’d give it a go. ***The Product*** This is Bourjois’ new innovation nail varnish with a fan effect brush. It claims that the fan...

“Super Speedy Application”

published 10/09/2012

ProEasy application, fast drying

ConsA little costly

The first time I tried this nail varnish was actually when I bought a discontinued colour from fragrance direct at a fraction of it's original price. I don't think I would ever have picked up this particular polish to try at it's costly price of around £5.99 a bottle! However, after trying it...

ProReally easy to use, dries quick, is resilliant

ConsHellish for toenails!

I'm a real Bourjois girl - I love the brand, so when I saw the 1 Second Nail Varnish, I was over the moon. I'm always pressed for time and hate doing my nails - it's a chore. So I bought three - a mocha brown, a glittery orange and a deep dark pink. The varnishes retail at around £5.35 each. The...

“Great quick use nail varnish”

published 18/06/2009

ProColour range

ConsChips quite quickly on fingernails

I found that the shape of the brush on this varnish really did make it easier to apply - you only need one, or perhaps two brushes on each nail. The shape also assists when painting near the cuticle. The varnish dried fairly quickly too - in about two to three minutes. There is a reasonable range...

I have it in a light turqouise colour,brush was good though it takes me 3 swipes (inc the edges) and the time on the bottle says 1 second and its dry.. .. 30 seconds later its still not dry and im now left with fingerprints. it also says smudge free on the bottle i have smudges here and there so overall quite disappointed paid 8 euros for it i should of stuck to rimmel.

The 'fan-effect' brush made the nailvarnish much easier to apply. However, it did take longer than 1 second to apply and the nail varnish doesnt actually dry properly. I can lightly skim over my nail without making a mark, but even the slightest bit of pressure leaves marks in the nailvarnish. It does claim on the back of the bottle "dries in 50 secs. No smudges." This is obviously not the case.
