I recently got some pretty little polishes that come from across the pond. One is a hugely sought after little sucker. It's Max Factor Fantasy Fire. I have to admit, it's really beautiful. Many compare it to Clarins 230 (aka Unicorn Pee), but since I don't own that one I can't weigh in on that statement. Whether it's a dupe or not, I think Fantasy Fire is fabulous all on it's own.
Max Factor Fantasy Fire is a layering polish. It is multi-chrome shimmer that sits in a sheer purple base. The shimmer is red, but flashes blue, green and gold. It's really stunning and has that "lit from within" look that I absolutely love! I used 1 coat of Fantasy Fire.
I imagine the layering possibilities are vast for Fantasy Fire; black, blue, purple, red, etc. I chose Barry M Indigo as the underwear for my FF. I know this isn't an original choice because it's been done before many times over, but the two go so well together they are like peanut butter & jelly! And why mess with peanut butter & jelly? So I used 2 coats of Indigo, which like it's name, is Indigo in color. Indigo went on smoothly and was fully opaque in the 2 coats I used.
I normally take pictures outside, but my camera didn't want to play nice and I couldn't capture the beautiful shimmer in the sunlight. So these pictures are taken indoors.
