Sunny Pink

For a while I haven't posted about the polishes I don't really like. You see, I choose every bottle for my stash very carefully, putting in and out of wish list loads of polishes. Max Factor Sunny Pink is a special case. Firstly, I spotted it looong ago, but was never really willing to pay 5€ for 5ml of hell knows what. Suddenly, the was an offer "buy a mascara - get a polish for free!", so I couldn't refuse (Max Factor mascaras work very well for me), so I took Sunny Pink home. But after I tried it...

Firstly, it's VERY sheer. I needed 3 coats to wear it, but my inner frantic perfectionist demanded the 4th coat to get rid of any signs of VNL. Secondly, it's streaky - it's not that bad, and with some effort you can apply it evemly. Thirdly, the drying time.. is emmm.. average. Not slow and not fast. But with 4 coats, you know.. ; )

What caught me in this polish was the magic golden shimmer - I can never resist it. Also, surprisingly, the shade did not conflict with my skin tone, although I expected it because there is a touch of coral in this polish. Lastly, the name is quite cute, so is the bottle and the brush. And the name really SUITS the polish, that's becoming a rare case nowadays.

BUT: Don't get enchanted (in case you like such shades). Otherwise you will be swearing this polish for application - better pick something similar from other brands. Oh, and about brands: this is my only Max Factor polish. So far I don't feel like trying out more : )

  1. Очень напоминает Orly Fantasea, и текстурой, и ттх. :) Мне он на тебе понравился! Но предполагаю, ты еще не скоро решишься накрасить им повторно :)

    1. Повторно? Не раньше чем через год :) Фантазеа такая красивая, я тащусь просто от ее свотчей! Но если она такая же капризная в нанесении, то пожалуй воздержусь от нее..

    1. Так и я вроде не мужчина :))) Но ты права наверное, я задумалась и вспомнила, что у меня маман тоже такое любит. Еще розовые с шиммером на ура идут и вообще все с шиммером :)

  4. Да, 4 слоя многовато конечно. Но на твоих ногтях красиво смотрится!)

    1. Спасибо :) 4 слоя я только нюдовым желешкам прощаю, и то только если быстро сохнет..

  5. The golden shimmer is very evident, reminds me of China Glaze Awakening (the red is darker tho) - but too bad about the streaking...

    1. Wow, you are really an expert! Awakening looks very similar, and also CG Sunset Sail, which I'm lemming forever. Now I can postpone getting it :)
