Clarins 230

Hi, guys! I have been absent again, but only because I couldn't bring myself to take this off! This fabulous little gem was hiding in the back of a box of makeup my sister had! She happened to see Max Factor's Fantasy Fire on one of the blogs I follow and I mentioned how I would like it since I would probably never get me hands on Clarins. Well her reply was "Really? I think I have that"! So sure enough, here it is! It is everything and more than I hoped for! It really transforms from amber, to a garnet, to mossy and lime green,all the while looking like it was lit from a billion little lights within the polish! I will warn you right now, this is picture heavy!  I took a lot of pictures, and narrowing them down was near impossible!

This is two coats of 230, over one coat of OPI Russian Navy, all sealed up with Seche Vite. 230 was a dream, it seemed thin but covered so smooth and evenly. The first few pics are in my light box, and the last is indoors near a window. The lighting really changes how this looks, and I definitely did not capture the full beauty of this. In my kitchen it almost always looked green. This is one of those polishes that is more than just a polish, they created something truly beautiful here!


  1. I can't get enough swatches of this!!!! You are a lucky lady!

  2. I love this too, it always looks different depending on what it's over! One of my favorites is from Fashion Polish, incase you haven't seen it here's a link : http://www.fashionpolish.com/2011/02/clarins-230-ultimate-nail-polish.html

  3. OMG, that is an incredible story. That's so cool. The swatches are awesome, this polish really is a chameleon!
