Max Factor Glossfinity Nail Polishes - review, photos, swatches

I'm telling you, if the first couple of months of 2013 is anything to go by, nobody should have to spend over a tenner to get a fantastic nail polish and Max Factor are right up there with the big boys thanks to their new Glossfinity nail polishes.

Promising glossy nails for up to 7 days and in 26 shades with something for everyone in the audience, I was excited to get four of the shades to try out.

L-R: Candy Rose, Red Passion, Lilac Lace, Aqua Marine
Each of the four polishes applied like a dream and usually I put on three coats for photos.  Not in this case.  Two coats was perfect for glossy, beautiful nails and speaking of glossy, the finish on these rival a Seche Vite finish.

Candy Rose is a dusty pink that's perfect for this time of year.  It gives more interest to your nails over a nude polish and I think everyone should have a colour like this in their stash for days where they don't know what they want on their nails.  It's pretty, sophisticated and gives you a polished *ahem* manicure.

Red passion is just gorgeous.  To me, it's a real Hollywood red shade that's bright, in your face and one that adds drama and glamour to your nails for a night out on the town.  

I've nothing like Aqua Marine in my collection and it's a muted green shade with blue undertones that might make a more sophisticated St Patrick's Day manicure?  It's a serene, calming colour to me and I look forward to wearing it lots.

Finally we have Lilac Lace, a vibrant Dairy Milk purple.  It's definitely more purple than it is lilac and like the other three, is creamy, doesn't streak and makes me happy.

These polishes really are fantastic and for €7.49, you really can't go wrong.  I'll definitely be checking out the other shades and adding to my collection.  I mean, when you think about it, because of the glossy finish of these, you won't need to buy another top coat so technically they're saving you money...  Girlie justification at it's finest wha?!
