Maxfactor Gel Shine Lacquer review and swatches

L-R Twinkling Pink, Vivid Vermillion and Patent Poppy
Hello! Wow, it's been a while. I will hopefully be writing a post explaining why I'm not as active any more soon, however I just wanted to get a beauty-related post up. Sadly my SD card has gone to heaven so I haven't been able to take any photos, but I did manage to find these beauties on my laptop. In fact, I'm surprised I haven't blogged about them yet as I absolutely adore them.

Maxfactor is a brand that I haven't really explored. I used their mascara when I was first starting out with make up and I like their FaceFinity foundation, but other than that I'm yet to delve further. And these nail polishes were a great place to start. The Gel Shine Lacquers* have been available for a good few months now and there is nine shades in the range in total, each retailing for £6.99.

The 'modern glamour' collection, created by Pat McGrath, has been inspired by decades and gives off high shine and intense colour than lasts. In fact when it comes to longevity these really can't be faulted. They come with a special two-fold patented plasticiser which adds flexibility to the formula, giving off a strong resistant film which maximises the impact on the nail.

I received the shades Twinkling Pink, Vivid Vermillion and Patent Poppy which were perfect shades throughout the summer. Their high pigment meant only two coats were needed. I now however have my eyes on Sparkling Berry and Sheen Merlot which are deep purple shades that I know will become winter staples. At less than £7 these nail polishes are affordable and of such exceptional quality.

Have you tried these nail polishes before?
