Selfridges used to stock a nail polish brand called Kure Bazaar that I was obsessed with – I loved it but for reasons that I don’t know, it disappeared. Its USP was that its formula used up to 85% of natural origin based on wood pulp, wheat, cotton, potatoes and corn. So does Soigne – and these ‘botanical’ formulas from past experience really do seem to bring something extra to the party in terms of gloss and longevity. It goes without saying that if you reduce the harshness of the formula, then it’s going to be a better deal for your nails.

Soigne Spring Nails looks milky and elegant; reminds me a bit of sugared almonds. Incidentally, the trio is supposed to be inspired by marshmallows – clearly the French brand hasn’t ever been exposed to the violently pink Tesco marshies. I’m googling French marshmallows now to see if they really are so Farrow & Ball.

Colourwise, the soft peach/pink shade is Creme Bavaroise, white is Vanille and leans to a warm white and the ashes of roses shade is Canneberge.

Soigne doesn’t get nearly much attention as it should – everything about this brand is elegant and stylish and I’m surprised that I don’t see it more often stocked in places like Selfridges or Harrods.. I think they’re missing something. Or, I could see it having a lovely home on Net-A-Beaute.

Soigne polishes are £11 each HERE.
