Review: Max Effect Mini Nail Polish by Maxfactor

Howdy =)

So about two weeks ago I went out on a mission to buy nail polish as I had planned to film a nail art tutorial. I wanted to do something to reflect spring as a season. To accomplish that I planned to use pastel colors. Since I did not have any yet I decided to buy some.

I went to one of my local drug stores (and took really long) to decide on a bunch of nail polishes. Among them was the Max Effect Mini Nail Polish by Maxfactor for about 4-5 GBP (sorry, I don't know the exact price anymore.) I liked it because the color was exactly what I was looking for (#20, Mellow Yellow).

As you can see, the nail art tutorial did not happen. Or maybe I should say it DID happen as I filmed what I was doing. Howeverrrrrr.... I ended up not uploading the video as the whole project was a total and absolute disaster - thanks to my dear new yellow Max Effect Mini Nail Polish. I tried hard for about three long and annoying hours but the polish simply refused to cover my whole nail. And those parts that were covered were totally uneven.

I removed it several times because I thought that maybe it was my fault, maybe I was simply not able to use it properly. However, I usually don't have trouble using nail polish. Especially not THAT kind of trouble where the polish is all streaky and doesn't stay on the whole nail.

I was quite disappointed and don't think I will purchase another one. The colors are amazing, I can't deny that. But then, nice colors don't help you much if you can't put them on your nails.

For those of you who want to give it a try anywy, please go ahead. Don't let my review stop you. Just because it didn't work for me doesn't mean it won't work for you. If you find out how to handle this nail polish, feel free to leave a comment and explain.

That's it for today, I will see you soon :)


P.S. I would have liked to say more about how much nail polish you get for the price but unfortunately all the useful information is printed in white. Since the background is obviously a nice bright yellow it is extremely difficult to read the white font on it... All I can say is that it's not much. It is in fact one of my smallest nail polishes.
