Max Factor Max Effect Mini Nail Polish - Dazzling Blue

I'm a sucker for metallic nail polishes at any time during the year.  But when summer comes, I'm magnetically drawn to the blue ones for some reason.  Maybe it's me trying to emulate the blue sky from my holidays in Spain....

I picked up one of the Max Factor Max Effect Mini Nail Polishes in the shade Dazzling Blue on a recent trip to Boots and for €5, I was happy to hand over my money for this little beauty.

In the bottle, you can see that it's mainly a blue polish, but there are hints of green, purple and even pink running through it.  And you know what that means, right?  Yes, it is a hoor to photograph properly.  In the photos below, it looks predominantly blue with the merest hint of green if you close one and and squint with the other.  But as I'm typing this and it's starting to get dark, you'd swear I was wearing a different nail polish.  It now looks pure green!

The photos above show the nail polish with three coats, but to be honest, I could have gotten away with two coats.  It would make a perfect base for my mermaid nails, wouldn't you say?

Of course, I didn't just buy one nail polish on my visit to Boots, that would have been a waste of petrol and not good use of my time.  No, I picked up two other shades and some other goodies, so stay tuned for more on those!

So ladies, are you liking Dazzling Blue?



  1. Looks fab Karen - and the best news is, I OWN THIS! I just don't know what I've done with it but I definitely bought it, must have a root about this evening!
