With all the lovely sunshine we've been having in the UK, I thought it would be nice to go for something bright on my nails and Max Factor mini nail polish in Bright Orange looked suitably bright. I rather like mini bottles, I don't think I'll ever get to the bottom of a bottle of nail varnish so they make me feel less guilty about wastage.
I was pleasantly surprised by this colour on the nails. I had expected it to be similar to the neon bright Illamasqua Gamma but it actually applies darker on the nails than it appears in the bottle. The colour is bright but it's a deeper, almost reddy orange and I find it more flattering than neon or pastel on my skin tone.
The finish looks a little like a jelly, it's not but I think the colour gives it that appearance. This is three coats and although it seems opaque I can still faintly see the free edge of the nail. The brush is quite dinky but still easy enough to use. My apologies for the sloppy application of top coat, my Seche Vite has gone gloopy.
I really like this colour and it's just the right level of bright for me for the Summer. I have looked and admired yellow but I think that's one trend I'll have to miss out on. What colour are you planning on painting your nails this Summer?
