Max Factor Fantasy Fire Swatches

I eventually found this, after the first few places I looked were sold out. Superdrug had three bottles left so I grabbed all 3 so I could give some to friends in the US...and they did have a 3 for 2 offer on. I hear this is a dupe of the coveted Clarins 230, which of course I don't own! 

The Max Factor Mini Effects collection polishes are gorgeous, it's just a shame the bottles are so tiny, especially if your nail beds are 57 miles long like mine are. 

Fantasy Fire is a sheer purple jelly base, packed with colour shifting, shimmery glittery particles. Best way I can describe it! My pictures are three generous coats, without top coat, taken in natural sunlight.

With camera flash:

Still some VNL, as you can see, which is why this polish probably works better over something.  Here it is layered over Barry M - Indigo (top) and NYC - Prince Street. It looks lovely on both but stunning over the Barry M, it really brings out the gold.

So happy with this! I may have to buy another bottle if I can, the tiny one won't last long with my nails.
