MaxFactor Fantasy Fire

Hi loves!!

  So today's post is some epic epicness. The second I saw a swatch of this beauty I knew I just had to have it. The only issue? It is only availbale in the UK. Enter the lovely Joanne from Northern Nails. We did a swapity swap and my polish life was completed. I know I'll never shell out the money for Clarins 230, but now that I have Fantasy Fire I don't feel like I am missing out on something really special.
 So for this layering I started with Two coats of Revlon Royal. I could not bring myself to do Two coats of  Fantasy Fire because it is a very small bottle and I don't want to run out of this pretty! So I ended up doing only one coat of FF over Royal but the effect was really strong and noticeable so I was happy with it. I think this is one of the most amazing polishes I've ever seen. The combination of Royal anf FF is just perfection.
 To see some more pics of this combo just keep reading after the jump.

 Here are Two weird angle pics to show you guys the color shift in Fantasy Fire.
 Yum!
Just look at it in the bottle!!! OMG it's just to die for!!

Thank you sooo much Joanne for helping me get this amazing beauty!!

  1. WOAH. That polish looks amazing. I wonder why people are touting this as a Clarins 230 dupe though. Must depend on the base.

  14. Another amazing swatch, the combination of colors is pretty effing amazing. Leticia, you can image search and see that while Fantasy Fire is not quite a Clarins 230 dupe on its own, the effect they have when layered over the same color is super similar.

  18. Wow, I JUST got this in the mail today! I got it off e*b*ay and got 2 bottles (glad I did, I missed the part where they were minis). What a cool coincidence ;)

    Looks GORGEOUS! I do have Clarins 230 and can't wait to see how they match up (the online swatches I've seen are pretty darn close).

    Congrats on getting such a beauty :))))

  19. I'm probably the only one on this world who doesn't get all this fame about this and unicorn pee polish. *heehee* I wouldn't wear it for sure but it looks gorgeous on you. <3

  23. Oh no....not another one!!!
    This is a real torture for me!!!
    I love it, I love many of the polishes in this collection (Fantasy Fire's the best, though)..and, here again, in Italy we still don't have them.
    Stracrossed.......... :D

  25. Love it over the royal blue! I bought my MF tiny bottle here on the secondary market - as tiny as the bottle is, I could have spent the same $ as it would take to buy enough to be the size of #230! But this was a good way to start to see if I even WANT to still get the all talked about #230. I have bought into hype before on older polishes only to find out that it's not that amazing and I could have lived without it. Odd that no one until MF-UK came out with this one. You would think as hot at #230 was and is - someone by now would have duped it long ago.
