Tried and Tested: Bourjois One Second Gel Top Coat

As much as I love Shellac, it can get expensive and you can't change up the colour until you get it removed. Luckily, Bourjois have released a gel like top coat that is the closest thing to a gel finish I've found, without the commitment. 

The best thing about this top coat is the brush. It's a huge paddle style brush which enables you cover your entire nail in one swipe. It literally takes a second. I thought the name of the top coat was a gimmick but it isn't. It really does take a second to coat your entire nail. I also like the fact that I can do my entire hand without having to dip the brush back into the bottle. It makes painting you nails that much faster. 

In terms of formula, I think this one is going to be very hard to beat. It's really thick and glossy, just like a gel polish. It makes whatever polish I'm wearing last a lot longer too. I mean, even after three days, there's minimal chipping. For such a thick top coat, it dries really quickly. I'm one of those girls who hates waiting for nail polish to dry, so this is great. 

This is a fantastic all round top coat. It gives your nails a gel like finish without the commitment; I definitely recommend it. And that's coming from someone who's usually too lazy for nail polish!

What's your favourite top coat?

Thanks for reading,
(P.S. The Bourjois One Second Top Coat is £5.99 in Superdrug.)
