Soigné Nail Lacquer – Birchbox UK

When I first saw Birchbox were including another nail polish in their May box I was a bit miffed. Firstly their April box included a Club Color polish and secondly I own enough polish to sink a small ship already. The phrase “it better be good” sprang to mind.


Fortunately the polish they included was a beautifully packaged,  brand-new to the market lacquer by French company Soigné Botanique.  Even better I got a shade called Pomegranate which is a beautiful bright red and is perfect for summer.

I finally got the chance to try the polish  properly tonight and it really is as good as it looks. The brush is large and coats the nails well, and the formula isn’t streaky at all. One coat gave full coverage, although it was the teeniest bit sheer for my liking, so I used a second to ensure a really solid colour.


The Soigné formulation is really impressive,  containing ingredients that are approximately 85% of natural origin. It is also Formaldehyde,  Toluene,  Dibutyl Phthalate and Camphor free. It retails at £11 and can be bought in the Birchbox shop.


You can find a review of my Birchbox box here. I was really impressed with the quality and variety of products it contained but the Soigné lacquer is by far my favourite product. 

If you want to subscribe to Birchbox it costs £10 + £2.95 postage a month for a rolling subscription (there are also discounts for signing up for 6 or 12 months) and considering the polish alone retails at £11 it is fantastic value. Additionally, if you use my referral link here, as a thank you we both get 50 points (£5) to spend in the Birchbox shop!

      It’s a great box, I don’t think ive ever seen such a beautifully packaged nail polish before, and the formula doesn’t let it down either. I’m tempted to get some other colours now!

        Oh wow! That’s an impressive amount! I probably have 100+, the majority Nails Inc and Ciate. What brands do you like or is it a case of anything goes?

        I mainly get lured in by the colours. I’m not so fussy on brand cause the majority I use for detailing nail art… Can’t beat Barry M for value vs good strong colours though and I generally use Sally Hansen complete manicure if I’m going plain because they go on very smoothly and have great brushes.

        I dont really do much nail art yet, I tend to do my nails in the evening after my little one’s gone to bed, and then I’m usually to tired and the lights not good enough to do anything but a basic mani. I intend to start doing some though!
