Max Factor Fantasy Fire Review

I am excited to show you the beautiful Max Factor Fantasy Fire.


I decided to layer this over a deep blue - Ulta Moody Blues.  Max Factor has a blue/purple jelly base with red color shifting shimmer.  The color shifts consists of red, orange, green, and yellow - depending on the light.  


 For these swatches, there are 2 coats of Fantasy Fire over 2 coats of Moody Blues.  I actually liked it a bit more with just one coat of Fantasy Fire - but this is really pretty too.  I'm excited to wear this over other colors and as my friend Liesl suggests, all by itself!  Here are her swatches of Fantasy Fire on it's own....so beautiful!  I love the fact that this polish can be so versatile.


For those of you who don't already know (most polish addicts do) Fantasy Fire is only available in the U.K.  It's a drugstore brand, so it's kindof funny that we, in the US, get sooo excited about it.  There are a few ways to get your hands on this polish.

1.  Find a "dealer" in the U.K. - they can be found on some Facebook groups (let me know if you are interested in getting in touch with someone)
2.  Find a wonderful blogging friend who has uncles that traveled to the U.K. and picked up 3 bottles of it.....heheh, this would be my friend Liesl at LieslLovesPrettyThings who decided to send me a bottle out of the kindness of her heart:)  
3.  Ebay
4.  Take a trip and find it yourself!  

You will be seeing this polish on my blog a bunch more as I play around with the different bases.  Thanks again Liesl!  Have a great day everyone.

  5. If you can believe it, I have NEVER worn Fantasy Fire! I got it from an awesome gal I met on Facebook but I put it in my tub of minis and never used it. I think it's time to get it out :)

    1. No, I can't believe it. I wanted to wear it the day I got it but I had to wear my black and red nails. So the next opportunity I had to put it on, I did. I love it and can't wait to play with it more over other colors.
