ABOUT:Max Colour Effect Mini Nail Polish in fun-size pots to nail your look with a flourish of polish!

  • Choose from 36 on-trend colours for any occasion.
  • Handy mini pots for your purse.
  • Part of the Max Effect range.



PACKAGING:The nail enamel has a small square shaped glass bottle.I find it pretty convenient to use and store.Also,I don’t use nail paint too much so this size is apt for me.The brush is also pretty standard in size and quality, and it’s easy enough to use.


SHADE:Cloudy Blue a dark blue nail paint with dark grey base and duochrome purple effect.It appears t o be duochrome in bottle however,the effect doesn’t show up on nails.The shade is sheer in single coat and has to be swiped at least thrice for deep blue color.


PERFORMANCE:The formula is great.It is slightly runny but not that it would spill.The nail paint applies well and buildable.It doesnt look streaky or gloopy if over applied.The nail paint dries within 2-3 minutes.The shimmer present is subtle and the glossy finish if the nail paint makes my hand look fair.


Cloudy Blue stays for about 3-4 days on nails.The best part is that it doesn’t stain my nails like some dark nail paint do neither it settles in the cuticles.I was very scared the very first time I applied this but it did not stain nor made my nails hard.

RECOMMENDATION:I love the shade and the finish.The formula is good and there are many more shades available in the range.Also,the mini packaging is a boon for me.However,the price is a bit high for a mini nail enamel.
