Max Factor Gel Shine Lacquer £7.99 (link)*The latest editions to the Max Factor make-up range are their Gel Shine nail polishes, promising to give a smooth, high shine finish that is long wearing allowing your nails to stay chip-free for longer. With a vibrant shade range, from autumn reds to vibrant colbalts. To even each of the shades being inspired by a decade of glamour, right from those 1950's red's to 90's burgundy's. These nail polishes are quick becoming a favourite accessory of mine this autumn/winter.
So I put them through the test of the daily wear and tear, and can say they lasted just under a week. With the days of "streaky" nail polish gone when you've tested these. Seriously though, some of these shades only needed one ("Twinkling Pink" & "Glazed Colbalt") to two coats ("Vivid Vermillion","Gleaming Teal" & 35 "Lacquered Violet") to achieve a highly pigmented colour! As well as offering a gel-like finish without the price tag. You can't really go wrong with a purse friendly nail polish that can instantly add a sense of retro glamour to any ol' outfit.
