Max Factor Fantasy Fire...or is it?

So I have had this little bottle sitting in my drawer for months - having yet to use it. I finally decided to use it a week ago, but I'm a little stumped...

What I see sure looks a lot more like Nfu-Oh's 51 - while I dont own this - I have yet to see a Fantasy Fire swatch showing the flakes it it. Either way, Im not upset, it still looks pretty darn amazing! I suppose this polish will have to go back on the lemming list though.

Take a look at these and tell me what you think...

I really so love this layered on Purple Rain. This is one of my favorite purple lacquers - The blue and red shimmer it has in it keeps me looking at my nails all day. Then with this added...well you can only imagine!

Max Factor - Fantasy Fire - 1 coat
Base color: NARS - Purple Rain - 2 coats
Top Coat - None

Top Coat added - NYC - In a New York Minute 

So what are your thoughts...Not really Fantasy Fire? As I mentioned above - I have never seen fantasy Fire photos with these larger flakes, but nothing on the bottle shows it's not real, or has been tampered with - it was brand new when I received it. I still love it, but its time to look for the real lemming of mine!


  1. I have Fantasy Fire and it definitely does NOT have flakies like that! How strange! That one does look a lot like Nfu Oh 51 instead of Fantasy Fire.

  2. If you can't find the original, Darling Diva's Ringer is basically a dupe of it.

    1. Thats right! Thank you for mentioning that - I havent been on her etsy store in a while!

  3. Thats really odd. Mine doesn't have large flakies in it either...

  4. Woah weird, the color flash looks all wrong- mine doesn't have flakies either hmmm

  5. Its very pretty, but it doesnt really look like Fantasy Fire... Odd...
