Max Factor Gel Shine Lacquer

Polishing my nails is the one part of beauty that drives me a bit bonkers.  I paint my nails and then have to get up to do something inevitably getting a bit of fluff or hair onto my newly painted nails.  Then there is the layering of the nail polish and since I am clumsy I need to pay attention.  All this and sometimes the polish chips before the end of the day.  My main test for nail polish is washing my hair.  Nothing feels as good as scrubbing your hair with your nails but it is guaranteed to get rid of the tips of nail  polish.  For me its a lot of effort for very little payback.  Don't get me wrong I love the look of polished nails, its just I am not the most delicate creature so I ruin them before the nail polish is even set.  

New to the market are Max Factor Gel Shine Lacquer* (€10.39) the bright vibrant colours alone had me intrigued.  When I first used the shades I was amazed that the majority offered full opaque cover in one coat - the less faffing around for me is always a winner- and AMAZING shine.  So far so good but if we add to the fact that I managed to wash my hair without chips DING DING DING we are onto a winner.  

The cute dinky bottles which look very old Hollywood (the red shades are based on the 1950ies) and would be at home with any higher end makeup product - Max Factor have you met Charlotte? 

Lets look at the shades closer
Glazed Cobalt, Lacquered Violet, Gleaming Teal,

Vivid Vermilion, Twinkling Pink, Patent Poppy,

Radiant Ruby, Sheen Merlot, Sparkling Berry - very old Hollywood and very glam.

We might need 2 coats of these to see their full beautiful colour - none the less still fabulous.

Sorry for not painting on my nails - I always think its a great way to see the true colour against skin tone - honestly how could I pick which one to use first?  I am loving the Max Factor Gel Shine Lacquers. Pin It
