If you just follow one AW 13 trend, make it Oxblood nails. Say goodbye to last seasons delicate nudes and bold neons, this seasons nails are a darker sinister shade of sexy. Part brown, part purple oxblood is where it’s at.
I tried out “Maxfactor Glossfinity” in “Ruby fruit”, which promises glossy nails for seven days. I got mine today in Boots Grafton Street, for €5:60 so it’s very purse friendly. This shade is a very good dupe of MAC “Vintage Vamp” which I reviewed here, but it actually goes on much better and dries faster. Vintage Vamp, like most of MACs nail polishes need like 6 coats before the colour turns opaque, and dries at a glacial pace, and it doesn’t even go the distance in terms of chip resistance. (No DIY nail polish can, only a salon can give that to you)
But that’s not the case with Glossfinity! Two coats and its opaque, 10 minutes and its dry, and the colour is highly pigmented. For someone who doesn’t like cheap nail varnish – I’m really starting to love this cheap nail varnish! I feel a bit like I’m cheating on the high end brands, but when you can get something like this for a fiver, sure who cares.
