My husband laughs at me that we call Clarins 230 "unicorn pee". So I tried to explain to him how unique the polish was with it's color shifting abilities. Well needless to say, he just didn't get it lol, but you do right? If you are love nail polish, you know how special Clarins 230 is. I just haven't been able to trigger the price points on ebay for a Clarins 230, and although I have no doubt it is worth every penny, I just couldn't do it.
I'm happy to say that the UK girls now have something that is pretty darn close to Clarins 230. I don't have a bottle so I can't give you comparison pictures, but several other bloggers do and I was convinced that it was a dupe. I ran out and bought out the stock in Boots lol!
The bottles are a tiny 5ml. You technically need 3 bottles to make up the normal bottle size. At £3.99 a bottle, you are looking at roughly £12. That's not "too" bad, right? Especially when a bottle of Clarins 230 on ebay.com runs you anywhere from $65+. So yes, I am quite satisfied and my longing for Clarins 230 has subsided thanks to Max Factor.
THIS IS A WARNING: THIS POST IS VERY VERY PICTURE HEAVY
The colour shifts so much, that I wanted to take as many pictures as possible. They aren't the best, but you will get an idea about the different dimensions of the polish. I'm running out next week to pick up more for a friend, and I hope the stock is available.
I wore 3 coats of Fantasy Fire over one coat of Illamasqua Baptiste

I hope you guys enjoy it, as much as I am enjoying it right now.
Happy Saturday to all the lovelies out there xx
