Swatch: Three new Femme Fatales

Happy Monday everyone!

So after being in the nail polish game for a while now, it takes a lot for a new polish to really wow me, much less an entire collection. But lately I've been absolutely drooling over everything Femme Fatale has released! That's why I had to break my no-buy for Color4Nails' latest restock and grab some of Femme Fatale's newest polishes. I've managed to get three swatched for you, go me!

All of these had a great formula and stayed exactly where you put them. The only negative was that, since they have sheer bases, I got some bald spots on my tips. But honestly I didn't care!

First up is Lantern Waste. This has a dark slate grey base with orange-to-green flakies and red-to-gold shifting shimmer!

Femme Fatale Lantern Waste. Two coats with Out the Door topcoat.

This has such a creepy vibe! Despite the strong shimmer, it wasn't brush-strokey at all.

Next is Heart's Desires. It has a dusty rose base with green-to-blue flakies and lots of copper holo microglitter.

I love the way this polish takes a "grandma" color and makes it exciting again!

Last but not least, I have Mirror, Mirror, On the Wall... I was so happy to get this one because I missed the first two restocks and was terrified that I'd missed it forever. When I first saw the swatches, I wrote that it looked like a polish a unicorn would wear, and I still think that's true! It has a very pale turquoise base with pink-to-gold shifting shimmer and lots of silver holo glitter.

The shimmer was so strong in my normal lighting that it freaked out my camera, so I got some natural light shots. I love how different it looks at various angles!

There's definitely a touch of magic in that bottle, don't you think? The polish was pretty smooth after one coat of topcoat.

Well, are you as in love with these Femme Fatales as I am? If you want to grab one, keep a close eye on the Femme Fatale shop and/or their stockists, because I'm sure they've been selling out really quickly!

  1. I love these flakies! Just spectacular.

  2. Mirror mirror on the wall is to die for. I couldn't find it on color4nails or the femme fatale shop.

    1. Yep, it's been selling out almost instantly. That's why it took me three tries to get it!

  3. Ooooh yes, so glad you finally got Mirror Mirror! I picked up Lantern Waste (it IS creepy) and Heart's Desires too, as well as a couple others! I really wanted Hundred Year's Winter, but man that one sold out instantly!

  4. Wow, Mirror Mirror On The Wall is stunning!

  5. Mirror, Mirror, On the Wall... is stunning! <3

  6. Hi, would you be interested in selling Femme Fatale Lantern Waste? I absolutely fell in love with it, and can't get my hands on it anywhere!!!!! :)
