MakeUp4All AUTUMN 2011 Online Beauty Magazine

Last week I was sorting out my nail polish collection, and realized that I never posted about the nail polish (and several other) which I’ve bought over a year ago, and which was a huge  back then.

And I am talking about Max Factor’s Max Effect in 45 Fantasy Fire.

Max Factor Max Effect Nail Polish in 45 Fantasy Fire nail of the day

It is a sheer and very complex blueish purple with reddish shimmer. A total beauty! I even did not paint my nails red this week, just to wear this…

Above you can see me wearing four shades of it. Yes, that is a lot of effort, but luckily those layers are thin and dry very quickly so you don’t have to wait for hours. I have also used

I have realized that it’s been a while since I had a black manicure. It’s one of my favourites plus I am always in the mood for black – so I did get one last week.

I was curious about CND Vinylux Weekly Polish, so it was time to try it, finally. And here are the results!

As for the finish,

Regular readers know that I am a huge fan of red nail polishes, and I am actually very picky, there are not that many that I truly like. My favourite is actually Revlon’s Red, it is a bright true red, not dull, but not neon, not warm toned, but not too cool – it’s a timeless classic.

But I’ve managed to find another red which I love as much, as Revlon. It is Marc Jacob’s Nail Enamored Hi-Shine Nail Lacquer in Lola. You can see  it, freshly applied, here.

But on the photo below is  manicure with Lola after a week, that’s why it doesn’t look i’t best! It is with a top coat, since without it the nail polish doesn’t last for the whole week. But still impressive, right? There are very few nail polishes that last that well on me.

I love this nail polish so much that I would talk about it with everyone who would listen, ha!

  • Look at that design! It’s the coolest nail polish bottle I’ve ever seen. When I saw the promo photos for the first time – I knew that it had to be mine.

Nails Of The Day: Zoya Nail Lacquer in Tamsen

Believe it, or not,  this is my first ever Zoya nail polish. It was actually a present from a friend, who remembered that I wanted one. What a pleasant surprise!

I love red nail polishes, as you probably all know, and was very happy that I did not have a similar shade. The one I have is called Tamsen, which is described as medium warm brick red with strong orange tones.

I wanted to try Bourjois 1 Seconde Nail Polishes for some time, as I’ve heard so many great things about the range. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find a shade that I would really want. But… when I’m in doubt – I go for red. This is how I got 11 Style in Rouge.

Bourjois 1 Seconde Nail Polish in 11 Style in Rouge nail swatchesThe formula is really amazing, it is opaque with one coat, glides on smoothly and definitely dries quicker than most nail polishes. Plus I like the wide brush which allows you to save time on the application, too. Plus it’s easy to control (the brush) and you don’t get the nail polish all over the place.

As for the shade - 11 Style in Rouge is a gorgeous bright warm red. Perfect shade to brighten up dull weather & mood. Although I like cool toned or classic reds, this one is
