“ Brand: Max Factor / Type: Nair Varnish / Suitable for: Nails „
I am reviewing Maxfactor Nailfinity in general*
I first came across this when I was looking for a particular nail varnish to go with an outfit in the summer. I went into boots and noticed Maxfactor have a large range of lovely colours. I took out my dress and it matched up with nailfinity 830 Dusty Rose- I was so impressed.
This comes in a posh 10ml clear glass bottle with a plastic gold lid. On the front there is the nailfinity logo and on the back of the bottle there is directions of use and other useful information.
You should apply two coats of this for the best look and I agree with that. The quality of this is very high, it does not smudge when wet, unless it is accidental and it takes a long time to chip- considering it lasts a long time on your nails. I really like this because it looks shiny and glimmers on your nails which makes them very sexy and gorgeous. They do many colours of this and I would recommend the colour I bought to everyone!
This is around £4.00 which is not bad considering it lasts a long time, it does not chip easily and it is high quality. You can buy this from health and beauty stores such as Boots.
Do I recommend?
I recommend this because it is not too expensive, the brush is great so it is easy to apply (the fine hairs make this happen) and it looks lovely on!
5/5 From me!
Like blondgem, I have never purchased Max Factor nail products before, and the face products I have tried have never really wow-ed me. I was in Boots in Stirling, and purchased a few items, for some reason, there was a promotion going on and I received a free Max Factor Nail Finity French Manicure set. It came in a pink bag with 2 nail polishes from their range: No 222 Whispering Ivory, and number 223 See Through Peach, the packet also contained basic instructions on application of these products. The bottles are 10ml which is the usual size for most nail polishes e.g. Barry M Nail Paints and No 17, and I expect these to last me a long time. So far, they have shown no signs of drying up or separating out which I am pleased about. I find the brush, from handle to tip is quite long and fine. The large cap makes it easy to get a stable grip on the polish. The colours are your average nude and white french manicure kind, I find the peachy colour a little too orange for my skin tone, so it doesn't look very natural, but the white is a nice inbetween shade - I guess I would call it magnolia. It is not tippex white or barely where cream, so I love it for my tips. The colours do chip after a day or two even with a top coat, but I am yet to find a polish that doesn't. I think to buy these in the shops they are quite expensive at just over £5 a bottle, so for that reason I wouldn't buy them again as I know there are other brands that give a similar performance for half the price.
I have never bought Max Factor products myself however I received the Nail Finity French Manicure as a Christmas present. I am not one for having false nails or having acyrillic tips or anything like this, I have been blessed with being able to grow strong nails and I don't bite them, which I think is a disgusting habit.
This comes in a small pink case and contains two small bottles that are all part and parcel of the french manicure. It contains one bottle of white for the tips and one bottle of a peach colour as the overcoat and a little instruction leaflet if you are not sure of how to apply a french manicure.
To apply you take the white bottle, give it a good shake and make sure when you take the brush out you have not got any excess varnish on the brush as it can start to get messy. Use the brush and paint the tip of each of your nails in one swoop across the end. You do need a steady hand to do this. Some french manicure sets give you stickers to put on your nails for guidance however with this one you have just got to rely on a steady hand.
Leave the white to dry before applying the next coat as if you don't it may start to smudge and result in you having to remove the white and starting all over again. Once the white is dry use the peach colour and apply like normal nail varnish to the nail and also over the tip. Once applied leave to dry to prevent any smudging.
I have used a couple of french manicure sets before however this one is by far the best. When applied it doesn't chip easily and looks great for a long time until you have to remove when your nail starts to grow. Its a great way to have great looking nails for a lot less than having them done at a salon.
