The Wearable Shade
2 L’oreal Paris Infallible Nail Polish in Forever Mink, £7.99 The brand’s hype:
“A sleekly designed two-step process that delivers on-trend shades, hard as nails toughness and magnifying shine. A stunning, show-stopping hybrid gel-lacquer result, which defies a UV manicure.”
This is a great daytime shade that suits all skin tones. It comes with a top-coat even though it’s a similar price to the others which makes it good value for money.
By day three the shine is still holding up, showing the difference including a top coat can make. The only real chips are on the index finger and even then, they’re quite slight and not hugely noticeable.
By the fifth day the wear is a bit more obvious, but because it’s such a light shade you can actually get away with the chips around the edges of the nail. All in all it’s held up well.
Verdict: This did well overall and the fact that it held it’s shine, which is of course down to the two-step design, is a bonus. However, it did chip and it’s not a quick fix, you still need to spend time adding the top coat.
