NOTD: Rimmel Sky High and Max Factor Fantasy Fire

Hey all

A nail of the day to show you today. Ever since I picked up Max Factors Fantasy Fire I’ve loved it’s duochrome finish what I didn’t love was how many coats it took to achieve the desired look. I’ve tried using it as a top coat over various shades of nail varnish and have loved the look on most. 

I love how it looks different in different lights. I tried it over Rimmel 60 seconds polish in the shade sky high. This isn’t a colour I use much and not even sure when I bought. I used two coats of this.

The finish is ok but if I wasn’t using Fantasy Fire it would definitely need three coats. I love using Fantasy Fire over a bright purple so I was interested to see how it would look over blue.

One coat looked like this, a slight purple and turquoise hint to blue. I decided it definitely needed two coats.

Pre clean up (I’m a messy little painter ;)) I love this colour. Every time I looked at my nails I just thought of under the sea/ mermaids. It looks so pretty and shimmers so many different colours.

With flash you can really see a royal blue through it and a gold fleck.

I love the colour this turned out and I’m thinking of trying it over a pink shade soon.

Do you have fantasy fire? Do you layer sheer polishes over different shades?

Love M
