Max Factor: Fantasy Fire

Ah Fantasy Fire, with a name like that you expect something special, something that looks like a magical flame...

I have to you tell it's true.  The initials FF could equally stand for Freaking Fabulous when it comes to this nail polish and I was very grateful it was gifted to me!  I layered two coats of FF over a deep purple creme base (OPI's Pamploma Purple) and was amazed at how my manicure came to life in the sunlight with its ethereally intense sparkle.  It was a little tricky to photograph though and the true beauty of this polish is best seen in real life - then you get the full sense of the multichrome shimmer.  In sunlight the orange shimmer - the fire - really dominates.  Get ready for a swag of pictures!

Thanks again Emma!

Have a great weekend everyone.

  7. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    NEEEEEED IT. Is this shade hard to find? We don't have Max Factor in Canada anymore. (Not sure what happened but I think the brand pulled out about 10+ years ago.)

    1. !!!!!!! exactly!! I didn't know how to describe this one so I took a gazillion pictures to do the job for me! It's actually not HTF down here. If you really, ROOLY want it I could easily send you a tiny care package. Just let me know Liz :)

  9. I was so excited when I saw this in our shops! I tried it initially but have never gotten around to wearing it properly. I wish the bottle were bigger though. It looks gorgeous on your nails - you've beautifully captured the multicoloured gradient of shimmer :)
