Happy Saturday everyone!! Today I have a new mani 🙂 with several looks I’ve tried with these polishes.
At first, I wanted to try Max Factor Fantasy Fire, it looks gorgeous in the bottle! This is Max Factor Fantasy Fire on bare nails, but 4, yes FOUR coats of it. Hahaha told you it’s very sheer. But if you like it sheer, this is very nice to give a subtle wash of colour.
Fantasy Fire is a sheer purple polish with warm coppery red chrome micro shimmer.
This is a very sheer formula so it didn’t look as impressive on bare nails. The shimmer looks more pink than red!?
So!! Out come my trusty Barry M’s Vivid Purple!! It looks vivid yes 🙂 so yummy just the way it is…
I would like to show you the different looks achieved with the 2 polishes. Read on..
This is Barry M Vivid Purple on its own, 2 coats with no top coat. I would happily wear this :o)
This is what I have been looking for! Look at that shimmer! 😀
I love it! Fantasy Fire on top of Vivid Purple, the red micro shimmer looks so much more dominant on top of the purple.
Sorry I couldn’t take a picture in strong direct sunlight with this mani. I am sure it would look stunning. But we don’t get much strong sun in cold months here in the UK! Boohoo
But here’s the next best thing, strong white artificial light! Haha
The red shimmer looks great in all lighting, like mini fire sparks …
