There has been such a blogging-frenzy over Max Factor's Fantasy Fire nail polish over the last few weeks, I was keen to see if all the attention was justified.
To be honest the deep purple duochrome, shimmer polish is right up my street regardless so I snapped up a few bottles when i saw it in Boots last week. (Word on the street was that it was sold out everywhere, but I've actually seen it a few times now!)
As many have already reported online, It's disappointingly sheer and will require 4 coats to reach anything near opacity (above). It's best layered over other polishes to get the effect in half the time. You can layer it over light or dark colours for different tones of purple.
I think I prefer it over the lighter shades (see above, on top of avon Cosmic Blue and below, on top of Barry M Berry Ice Cream)
Overall, I think the colour is definitely worth the hype, it's not something I've seen before, and if you're willing to overlook the formulation... it looks stunning on the nails! It's only £3.99 too and on 3 for 2 in Boots at the moment.
I picked up an extra three polishes to give away to three lucky readers this week! All you have to do to be in with a chance of winning is head over to my blog and enter a comment THERE!
Good luck girls!
