Nails of the Moment #5

STOP EVERYTHING! A Nails of the Moment post not featuring OPI's gel colour? Say what??
You heard it right folks, I've switched things up and decided that I wanted to be able to try some new colours and switch up my nail colour more often, without having to go the my Mum's salon. You can probably tell from the photos that it has been a while since I last painted my nails myself, the paint job isn't my finest artwork!

But as promised, I wanted to try out the Maybelline Forever Strong nail polish and report back. Where do I start? Well, first off, it has been a long while since I last wore nail polish on my hands as opposed to gel and my memory of it's lasting power was not too great. Boy o boy has that changed! I am sitting here writing this with the Maybelline Forever Strong nail polish 100% in tact after 6 days! Now I know that shouldn't be surprising considering it says 7 days on the bottle, but even with nail polishes that have those claims, I've never really found them to stay that well on my not so strong nails. I'm used to the first few chips appearing at least 3 days in, having to touch up my nails constantly and just get frustrated with all the fuss. This nail polish has greatly exceeded my expectations. The colour is awesome (Uptown Blue 20), I've never had a blue quite like it, it is really striking and I've had so many compliments on it. It would suit all skin tones. And for £4.49 you can't go wrong, especially when there is often a 3 for 2 on them!

So now I am back to nail polish, these posts will be coming a lot more regularly and will have a bit more variation. That said, if everything disappoints after this, I'm heading straight to Boots to get more polishes in the Maybelline Super Stay range!


  1. Seen this colour pop up everywhere recently and I'm in love! I'm the same with gel I only ever use that now so scared to go back to polish but this sounds so promising!
