Max Factor Deep Mauve

Good afternoon, from the comfort of my pjs and bathrobe!  Middle of the week days off are awesome, lol.
So in light of yesterday's post, while I'm on the subject of traveling family members/Max Factor, here's the third polish my mama brought home for me from Holland this past spring.  It's Max Factor Deep Mauve, which isn't really mauve, but rather an incredibly juicy looking opalescent raspberry red.  I used three coats in the first two photos, two in the third.




I love this color.  And, it's fun to try out a Max Factor beyond Fantasy Fire.  Deep Mauve is a little bit vampy, just this side of frosty, raspberry jam colored blue-red-pink with very subtle red-pink shimmer to give it some nice depth.  These Max Factor polishes apply like a dream, too.  Because they're minis, the brush is adorably short and so very easy to control.

So, there you go!  It's 1:15pm in my neck o' the woods and time for me to maybe shower/get to the grocery store/do some laundry/take a nap.  Thanks for reading. <3
