Max Factor Nail Polish in Meteorite, Moon Dust, Odyssey Blue, Graffiti & Fantasy Fire Review

Hey beautiful here is my review of Max Factor Nail Polish in Meteorite, Moon Dust, Odyssey Blue, Graffiti & Fantasy Fire Review!

Max Factor quietly released a plethora of new shades for their Max Effect Mini Nail Polish range recently. I say quietly because the 18 or so new colours integrated themselves amongst the older colours without much fanfare –

I wasn’t aware of their existance until I saw one of the new shades on a blog which prompted me to look out for them in store. I bought a few to share with you all, and this will be the first installment of my purchases. I used 3 coats for the first four shades, and 2 coats for the last one; the formula is generally very good, but a top coat is essential to ensure a longer wear time.

41 Meteorite is a steel blue-grey with dense silver, blue and a hint of purple shimmer.

42 Moon Dust is almost a purple and green/grey duochrome. In this close-up picture of the bottle itself, it definitely looks like a duochrome with a complex mixture of purple, green and blue shimmer, but on the nails, it looks more like a dull purple – a little reminiscent of Chanel Paradoxal but in dense shimmer form.

43 Odyssey Blue is a royal blue with dense blue and purple shimmer. The purple shimmer doesn’t really show up in most lighting conditions though.

44 Graffiti is a forest green with dense green, blue and purple shimmer. Again the purple shimmer is very weak.

45 Fantasy Fire is a super sheer purple jelly with shimmer that flashes red, green, gold and copper. It takes an awful lot of coats to show up on its own so I decided to layer it over a purple creme which looks similar to its base colour (Topshop Late Show – see pinky finger for the original colour). I was pressed for time and running out of light so I wasn’t able to fully capture its complexity (unlike this nail polish blogger I found via Google here) but trust me, this is absolutely stunning.
