MaxFactor Max Effect Mini Nail Polish in Fantasy Fire

At the beginning of the year a lot of beauty bloggers were raving about this nail polish and although I bought it, I never got round to trying it out! Last night I was looking through my nail polish collection for something I hadn't tried before (yes there are a few of these!) and this caught my eye.




This is one of two Max Effect Mini Nail Polishes in my collection and I think it's such an interesting colour. It's mainly purple but it when the light reflects on it, lots of other colours shine though such as blue, red and green.




As I painted the first layer on my nails I noticed this is an extremely sheer polish and the final look on my photos is with three coats and although it was almost opaque, the photos taken with a flash show my nail line very clearly! I think you would need four, possibly five coats to get a proper opaque finish.




I do like the colour of this polish and it does dry quite quickly between coats but I don't think I will be reaching for this polish very often as I don't have the patience for applying at least three coats!




This nail polish costs £3.99 (Boots) which is fairly reasonable and I like the mini size since I never use up a full nail polish!

Have you tried this polish or any of the other Max Effect Mini Polishes? What are your thoughts?

  1. It is a beautiful colour, what a shame it's not very opaque. I think a black polish underneath would make it look awesome. xx
