Max Factor: Fantasy Fire

When it comes to giveaways, I have really rotten luck. Despite diligently entering into a lot of them, I have never won anything. Well... almost never. The only time that I got lucky was when I won a giveaway at The Nailasaurus - a set of HTFs (Gosh Rainbow, Holographic and Max Factor Fantasy Fire)! As you can imagine, I was over the moon when I woke up and saw the email in the morning. :mj

Fast forward a few months later, I've finally got around to trying one of them and, boy, it sure did not disappoint!


Fantasy Fire. 1 coat over Zoya Kelly.
A sheer purple base filled with fiery multichrome shimmers that shift from red to gold to green. I was completely mindblown the minute I removed the bubblewrap. The multichrome in the bottle was so distinct and strong that it looked almost unreal. One thin coat over a dark base color was all I needed to see the fantasy fire come to life and rage across my nails. I was tempted to do another coat but I decided against it - I have only one small (like really tiny) precious bottle of this liquid magic and I am not about to start wasting it.

I don't do this often but this is too gorgeous not to do some picture spam:





If fire looks like this, I would gladly jump right into it and burn. :fire
While this is not really an exact dupe of the legendary Clarins 230 (which is said to be sparklier and has a different base color), it is probably the closest I can get to owning unicorn pee. That said, I'm still hoping that a polish fairy godmother will appear one day and hand me a bottle of Clarins 230. A girl can dream, right? :angel

If I am not wrong, Max Factor Fantasy Fire is available in the UK and Australia.

xoxo,

  11. Ooh, what a coincidence - I'm also wearing Fantasy Fire right now! I'm wearing it over a dark red, but I'm going to try layering it over dark purple next time :)


    And lol about the rotten luck with giveaways! Me, too, I never seem to win any. There was this one time I won several bottles of Kleancolors, and my bf jokingly said I probably used up all my luck for a year winning that giveaway. Darn, I sure hope not! :p

  18. This is gorgeous! I also have one bottle which I have not used, saving it for a special occasion! It's soooo tiny and my most expensive (per ml) buy. Love the base color you layered it over!

    I've won giveaways twice, the second time being from here (100 followers giveaway). The polish I got was OPI I Don't Give A Rotterdam, I really do need to feature it in a post ^^

  19. Thank you Priscilla! <3 The bottle is soooooo small that I really can't bring myself to use too much of it ><
    Yay! I'm glad you've gotten the polish! I hope you like it! ^_^
