At last! I have it! I am of course talking about the much blogged about Fantasy Fire from Max Factor. I’ve been trying to get it for ages to no avail until a week ago when I walked into Boots and a choir of angels sang whilst a beam of light parted the clouds to shine over the Max Factor stand. There it was. I grabbed it. Looking furtively around with my elbows at the ready to tackle other mad nail polish addicts that may try to steal my precious. Actually there were none and I just went to the till and bought it along with a few other things… which meant I earned myself a No7 £5 voucher. Normally I bin these as I’m not a No7 fan but I decided to inspect the polishes to see if I could find something to go under the Fantasy Fire as I know it’s a sheer one. There were actually several I fancied but it was Violetta that came home with me.
No7 Violetta, beautiful colour but I can’t say much else about it because the application was shocking. It had a gluey thick consistency, as I was brushing it onto my nails it seemed to stay stuck to the brush which gave me a very patchy finish. This is two coats.
You’ll see the patches showing through in all the following pictures too anyway.
Now onto the Max Factor Fantasy Fire. Truly a polish worthy of the hype. No more words, just a few pictures, some of which are blurry but still give a good impression of the polish.
