Maxfactor Fantasy Fire

So I am slightly behind with this hype but I had heard mixed reviews on the Maxfactor Fantasy Fire nail polish so thought I would get my hands on one.

The colour is just fabulous in the bottle but this is what it looks like when applied.

I was quite disappointed with how it looked when I applied one coat.

Two coats.

Three coats.

It took a whopping 4 coats to become almost opaque which I didn't like at all, the shade however is amazingly beautiful with a warm glitter running through it. As the bottle is a small bottle you would use this up in no time at all but it only costs £2.99 which is a very reasonable price. My nails don't like to dry when I use lots of coats so I will be selling this on my blog sale (click on the tab above to have a little shop).

Have you tried this polish out yet?



  1. I think this is more of a layering polish, maybe try it over a purple or dark blue polish? x

  2. Aw that's a little disappointing, but the shade really is so pretty x

  3. I won one and while it's nice I don't like painting 4 coats on either but I've heard it's good over other polishes

  4. I have it and one coat over a navy or a vampy burgundy brings it to life, all the gold and green and reds come out. I actually almost put mine on ebay, as I'd grabbed it in the shop and done a little victory dance at actually finding it within a week of all hype starting, then got home and looked at this bluey purple and thought I don't realllllly like this colour. So glad I tried it over a wine colour to see it on before deciding.

  5. I've seen loooads of people use it over different nail varnishes, over black it looks fantastic!

  6. I think once you achieve opacity with this polish, the colour is gorgeous! I've been debating whether to pick one up for a while but I always refrain because it is such a dark colour and would rather buy lighter ones for the current seasons haha!
