Maybelline Superstay Forever Strong polishes - where have you been all my life?!

I'm not sure if you've ever copped it, but I rarely speak about the longevity of nail polish here on the blog because a) I get bored with the colour a couple of days into it and remove it, b) I get one chip and then feel the need to peel off the rest of it and c) I'm really hard on my nails, so nothing generally lasts on them for too long anyway.

Until now.

I feel like I should have had some sort of dramatic sound bite to accompany those two words.  Like this one.

The Maybelline Superstay Forever Strong polishes have been on counters for millions of years now (slight exaggeration) and I even picked up a couple of shades during the summer but never got around to wearing them as my nails were in bits.  They're in great shape now again thanks to Maybelline and you can read all about the nail products I've been loving here.

But the nail polish that I know will be in my October favourites is this one.

Rose Poudré is the most gorgeous pinky mauvey nude and Orla, you will love this.  It's nude without giving me sausage fingers, mannequin fingers or anything else weird that comes with nude nails.  And I get to sound all fancy and French when I say the name.  Oh this shade?  It's Rose Poo-dray. The wide brush makes application really easy and with a couple of swipes over each nail, I'm good to go.  Two coats will do you and is what I've been wearing but I've done three coats just for the photos today.

Once it dries, the gloss stays nice and shiny for the full five days I'd worn this until taking it off to reapply it.  Oh yes, I said five days.  I have never in the history of my whole entire life on this planet ever gotten five days out of a nail polish.  Like ever.  And we're talking the appearance of tip wear on each nail on the third and the tiniest chips appeared on the outer edges of each nail on the fifth day.  Ok now I sound like I'm being holy and quoting the bible.  "And on the third day, wearing of the tips appeared and it was good.  One had fitted two picture ledges with great difficulty and despite drilling massive holes into the wall, the nail polish was only grand and remained essentially flawless.  On the fifth day, minor chipping appeared and one wasn't too concerned."

But seriously though, this is a game changer for me and I want Joanne to try it because she can keep polish going on her nails until it grows off.  She's classy my sister but I guarantee she'll get a good six weeks out of one of these polishes before it starts looking wonky on her.

Maybelline's Superstay Forever Strong polishes are €5.99 and when I picked up Rose Poudré the other day, there was a buy one get one half price offer on all Maybelline products FYI.  And from checking the price on the Boots website, it has been brought to my attention that there are 50 shades.  Fifty.  5-0.  Why don't you take all of my money now Maybelline?

Next on my list is a festive red and some darker autumn/winter shades.  Any excuse eh?

Have you tried these polishes yet?  If not, go get one and see what I mean.  If you have tried them, please explain why you haven't told me about them before?!
