NOTD - Max Factor Fantasy Fire

Hey lovelies!

Today I am wearing a new polish which has caused quite a hype over on PAA as it is said to be a dupe for Clarins 230 which is very hard to find!

The polish is Max Factor's "Fantasy Fire" which I first heard about via Pretty Digits' blog. In the bottle the colour is an indigo purple with red/gold/orange duochrome shimmer (please forgive me I'm no good at describing polishes of this nature) it's not often a duochrome or shimmer makes it on to my nails! Fantasy Fire is a new polish on the scene as part of Max Factor's Spring 2012 Collection. This is a teeny tiny bottle of 4.5ml and is priced at £3.99 available at both Boots and Superdrug.

Given the colour of this polish in the bottle the closest colour match amongst my stash was Barry M's "Indigo" which is a beautiful indigo blue/purple creme so I figured this would make a great base. The formula of Indigo was amazing and nearly a one coater, I used two coats to even it out and wow what can I say another Barry M beauty! I have posted some photos below of Barry M Indigo swatches. On top of Indigo I layered two coats of Fantasy Fire and the magic happened ... I fell in love with this combo! Absolutely super stunning! The orange shimmer sparkles amazingly and the indigo base of the two polishes just sets this on fire! Unfortunately my camera cannot capture the true beauty but I hope you can get an idea.

This is soooo gorgeous and going to be a huge hit amongst all of you lacquerheads - definitely a must have!
