I don't have any Max Factor cosmetics apart form this polish, Nailfinity 549 Red Passion. It is a perfect red creme for me. I have gone through dozens of red polishes over the years, but this is the only one I like with my freakishly pale skin. Others were either too orange, too light, too streaky etc. This one applies okay in two coats, lasts on me for three or four days without chipping or major tip wear, so overall I'm pleased with it.
