Max Factor Fantasy Fire over Dollish Polish Expecto Patronum

I have for you today an unexpected but amazing combination.

I was wearing Dollish Polish Expecto Patronum and the next day was looking through my drawers to see what I could wear next, and I spotted my Max Factor Fantasy Fire, that I have worn before (again these manis were in with the lost photographs) and I decided to see how it would look over a lighter colour.

The purple base of Fantasy Fire turned Expecto Patronum a lovely lilacy colour, and as Fantasy Fire is quite sheer, you could still see the blue glitter through it.  The only thing I did notice, is the green shift of FF was not noticeable at all, this might have had something to do with the lighter base, as I did see it before when worn over a darker colour.

This is 2 coats of Fantasy Fire over my previous mani of Expecto Patronum (shown alone here) and 1 coat of the Shield.

Fantasy Fire is available in Boots and Superdrug and seems to be in stock on both of their sites at the time of writing this, but as far as I am aware this is limited edition and is available in the UK only.  I know even when Fantasy Fire was first released I was not able to get it in my local store or on the sites but thankfully the ever sweet Esther of FabFingertips was nice enough to send me one.

Thanks for looking <3


  1. wow, awesome combo. I would NEVER have thought to layer it over a paler colour xx

    1. Thank you Debbie, I figured why not just try it, and I was so pleased with the outcome xxx

  2. I thought I'd read Fantasy Fire wasn't Limited Edition? Maybe I'll have to find another bottle! I would never have thought to use it over a lighter polish but this looks stunning! The purpley colour is just perfect!! xxx

    1. Ohhh, lucky us if it isn't limited :) So glad you like it over the lighter colour <3 xx


Please feel free to leave me a comment as I do enjoy reading them all but I would kindly ask that if you wish to send me a link (to your own blog etc), please do so via email (details on side bar) xx
