Manicure Monday – Max Factor Fantasy Fire

cgmaxfactorfantasyfireMax Factor Fantasy Fire has been on my collection for quite some time but I’ve never featured it on the blog. I first saw this on other nail blogs and thought it looked pretty amazing, so when I spotted it in my local Big W and for only $5.95 I snapped it up. It’s a very sheer purple with microshimmer that depending on the light can reflect either red/orange or green. I feel it is too sheer to be worn on it’s own and personally would only ever wear it over another colour base.

I actually did swatch photos of this eons ago but never uploaded the post.  I’ll be honest… I don’t love it, the reason for that is I don’t think i’ve found the perfect combination in colour for it to really shine or sparkle as it should. For this combo I used a base of Covergirl Outlast Nail Polish in Vio-Last. I think this combo looks alright together but I still don’t think it’s fantastic.

If you’ve got Max Factor Fantasy Fire what have you paired it with successfully?
