Max Factor Colour Effect Nail Polish in Bright Orange

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?

  1. I must try to find this in france - it looks perfect for the season! :)

  2. I have this and love it, its a real burst of summer isnt it! Although off to Asda in a mo and thinking might have to see if they have the Rimmel fruities in Lemon Drop as am really fancying a nice yellow now! And a peach, maybe.......!

  3. Oh I love this! Such a happy spring colour :)

  4. Very nice! I like that it looks a bit darker then the bottle. Currently I am wearing Illamasqua Obsess (very vibrant magenta); but I will probably be sporting MAC Plasmu Blu and also MAC Phosphor for my yellow 'fix' as I don't think I will be going for Mimosa when I have this electric yellow. I love these as my go to brights ever since I bought them in the Neo Sci-fi collection.

  5. I just bought this few hrs back and I am loving it! Though some how I don't like the size of the bottle. So tiny and price isn't cheap but I am happy that the quality is good. Great blog, i'm following you now.
