So I've grabbed this nail polish when Max Factor had a $5 off sale at Big W (they no longer have these mini nail polishes included as part of their sales) which dropped its price down to $0.72. This nail shade 'Fantasy Fire' is one I've been lusting over for yonks after seeing SO many beautiful swatches over the web! I just couldn't bring myself to spend $5 on such a teeny tiny bottle so I'm glad I've waited out for a sale to grab the last bottle for myself.
Well, what do you know.. I'm glad I purchased this for 72 cents. Don't get me wrong! It's a BEAUTIFUL deep purple with beautiful reflects of red shimmers and this pretty blue sheen which gives off a very mutli-deminensional look.. Reminds me alot of galaxy desktop wallpapers I used to have on my PC (yeah, you know those days). I'd award this "Miss Photogenic" if I could really, because it truly looks amazing in photos! However, to be honest... it's not all THAT noticeable in real life, heh.
As much as I was hyped to try this particular shade, I won't be repurchasing it for it's nothing special in terms:
- wear time -- lasted me 2-3 days before it started to chip
- pigmentation -- it's extremely sheer, needs 4 thicker coats or 5-6 thin coats to hit opacity
- size -- I wouldn't care for this so much if it wasn't so sheer. I've used this 4 times and it's almost finisheddddddd can ya believe?
The colour, however, is so gorgeous, but.. just not gorgeous enough to hit my repurchase list. Meep. I honestly thought I'd like this better! What a shame!
What do you think of Fantasy Fire?Have you tried this shade or any others from the range?
