NOTD: Max Factor Nailfinity - 882 Angel Nails


Above: Indirect daylight



Above: Direct Sunlight

Oooh what a pretty nailpolish! This is the first time I've ever tried out Max Factor nailpolishes and overall the available colors at my drustore were not very original, save for this one and maybe a couple of others. I have to say I absolutely love this polish and find the name very appropriate: Angel Nails!

It's a shimmer finish with micro glitter flecks in it, and the overall color I would describe as a very pale silvery mauve shade. This picture was taken on the second day of wear, 2 coats, with a base coat and top coat applied as always. So far so good! I don't think Max Factor is available anymore in North America though. This brand is still available here in Europe, although it's not cheap: This polish cost about 14 Swiss Franks, but it came with a mini glass nail file. Score!

Oh and for people who have been asking for a manicure tutorial video. I will try to do that at some point but I have to figure out how exactly I'm going to film it so I can get it close up but still have good lighting.

What's on your nails right now? Share in the comments!

  8. I really like that color, so pretty! I'll try to find it here in Sweden =)

    On my nails I have L'Oréal Star Magnetic in the color magnetic prune. I found it hidden on the lower shelf of a table at a H&M-store and it was marked with 50% off. I never actually thought the magnetic-thing would work, found it quite silly actually, but the color is really pretty! And it's opaque in the first layer and nice and creamy. Really good find. =)

  9. I went to Walgreens the other day and I was able to score 3 nail polishes. I got a wined up which is a beautiful brownish red, a white one, and top coat. I came home and read some reviews that said the polishes peeled off very quickly, but with the top coat I got the polish lasted me almost 2 full weeks!! And I cook, clean, and do all types of hard housework. I love my nail polishes!! =) Oh, and your nails are so beautiful...I'm green with envy!! LOL

    nothing =o( i work in a fabrication and machining company and it is so hard on my hands! i will have lots of practice when you get the manicure vid up. the only thing i can find that half way saves my nails is applying 'hard as hoofs' cream to my nails 3X daily. i wish i could find some type of good polish that wont turn horrid after coming in contact with the coolant and oils we put on the parts.

    Hallo :)
    Hoffe es ist okay, wenn ich Deutsch schreibe!
    Ich hab fast den gleichen von MaxFactor aber in silber und ich wollte fragen, ob du den leicht abbekommen hast? Bei meinem brauch ich nämlich für einen Nagel mehrere Minuten :( Besonders, wenn man 2-3 Schichten auf den Nägeln hat!

    Dankeschön :)

  42. Since we are commenting on nail colors, I am dying to know what color you are wearing in the video about the Hakuhodo brushes. In case you cannot reply because I know you are a busy lady, maybe other fans could give me tips on where to find a similar color? Thanks so much fellow makeup lovers!
