I’ve had surprisingly few releases encouraging me to paint my nails in Easter egg colours – or the other old chestnut – like chocolate. Maybe we have finally knocked any link with beauty and Easter on the head! I really hope so, because steeping in a chocolate-smelling bath is just not even close to piling into a Cadbury’s Creme Egg. I’d rather walk the dog for extra time to burn that off than pretend that my ‘calorie free’ chocolate treat is anywhere near a substitute for actual chocolate. Anyway, while I’m not particularly religous, last I heard, chocolate didn’t actually have anything to do with Easter. So, I’ll side-step the obvious link for the new Bourjois pastel polishes and sugar coated mini-eggs, and head straight to the fact that they’re fresh and exciting shades.Bourjois Pastels
So, shades from left to right are: Palm Peach, a creamy apricot colour, Pink-Itude (you’ll need three coats or a white base – in fact, use a white base under any pastels) for this one but it’s a shiny, nuance of baby pink, and Blue Lagoon that falls somewhere between a pastel mint and a pastel turquoise. These fat brushes are my favourite nail brushes – one coat and the job is pretty much done.
Again, these shades are on the beach-pastel trend – I hope I don’t have to throw away my reds! They’re a June launch for £5.99 a pop.
