Worlds Apart is a beautiful polish in it's own right but, if you're looking for a cheaper and more readily available alternative to Fantasy Fire and 230, you're out of luck. I was a bit disappointed because the swatches on the websites show a really strong green flash in the sparkles but I was unable to find an environment when the green flash was nearly as noticeable as it was in the product swatches. It's still a gorgeous polish but, in my opinion the product swatches(on the stockists) were very deceiving.

Ring: 2 coats Max Factor - Fantasy Fire over 3 coats China Glaze - Creative -Fantasy
Fantasy Fire and 230 required an extra coat of Creative Fantasy because they do not add to the opacity of the base color the way that Worlds Apart does.
