NAIL ART TUTORIAL: PSHIIIT X BOURJOIS

When we first launched PolishYouPretty, almost 2 years ago now, we stumbled across the amazing website Pshiiit. Although we couldn’t understand what she was saying (thank-you Google Translate!) we were so in love with her pictures. Such amazing use of light & we loved the incorporation of rings & jewellery.

We have had the opportunity to work with Bourjois on a few occasions, most recently for the Shopper’s Drug Mart Nail The Look Campaign. The polish consistency is ideal for nail art, a little on the thicker side with a creme look. We actually first heard about the brand over on the Pshiiit website, first thinking it was exclusive to France. When we found out the pair had teamed up to create nail art tools & accessories we couldn’t wait to see what they came up with.

Two sided dotting tools, nail tape (so hard to find in-store, this has always been an online purchase for us), nail decals + more. Here are a few examples from the Pshiiit website: http://boutique.bourjois.fr/looks/les-manucures-de-pshiiit.html  We played around with some new polish shades & tools for the nail art tutorial below – inspired by Pshiiit‘s love for simplicity + triangles.IMG_1385

Step 1: Begin by painting nails with 2 coats of Bourjois – Peach and Love. We almost had full coverage with one coat. This is a great pink/peach polish, the kind that are perfect for any occasion from Weddings to Summer days.IMG_1380

Step 2: Using the small end of the Bourjois dotting tool & Bourjois – Taupe Modèle polish begin with your base triangle. Find the center of your nail and place one polka dot. Work your dots down towards the moon of your nail creating a triangle shape.IMG_1382

Step 3: Repeat Step 2 on the right side of the nail using Bourjois – Adora-bleu. Try to keep the number of polka dots consistent with your first triangle.IMG_1383

Step 4: Repeat Step 3 on the left side of the nail using Bourjois – Amande Défilé. Leaving the top portion option to show off your pink shade.IMG_1389

Step 5: Don’t forget to seal in your design with a top coat!

For all of our fellow #nailartlovers out there, Bourjois has made it easy to obtain all the nail art goodies you need! Gone are the days of online shopping (& waiting, and waiting, and waiting) till they arrive. If you leave in Canada head to your local Shopper’s Drug Mart to see all the new shades + nail art accessories. Find your location here!

    Really simple but very cute!

  2. When I remove my finger from the pot it’s slightly oily, which must be the almond oil in the product. That’s quite nice though as it means your nails and cuticles are moisturised. I know other nail polish removers can be very drying on the skin and nails. That’s definitely not the case with the Bourjois Magic Nail Polish Remover .
