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.
