Mellow Yellow is the first Max Factor nail polish that I've ever tried and I was a little disappointed by it. The brush is slim (I prefer wider brushes) and the polish applies a little streaky, although became opaque after two coats. Three coats would have been even better. It also started to chip within a few hours of application, which is NOT ON. Despite all this, the colour does look great for my purposes.
To apply the fruit decals I put a liberal coating of clear nail polish on the back of each one, then pressed it down on my nail with a cuticle stick, holding it in place until it stopped slipping. I then topped off each nail with a clear topcoat to keep everything in place. Describing this as fiddly is a complete understatement, it took blooming ages! The effect is kinda cool though. Behold:
*I actually bought mine from Topshop for £2.50, so check in store too as I couldn't find them on their website.
EDIT: Four days passed before I lost my first kiwi whilst washing my hair. That's actually quite impressive. In fact, the decals had much more staying power than the nail polish!
