Femme Fatale - Glistening Lodestone annd Shimmering Snowcap

I have two polishes from Aussie indie brand Femme Fatale to share today.

Glistening Lodestone is full of all sorts of glitters so I'm just going to grab their website description as it's much quicker than me trying to pick out everything I see.  Glistening Lodestone contains teal diamonds, holographic blue glitter in various sizes, green and purple squares, small orange glitter and blue flecks all in a dark navy blue jelly base.  

I used three coats here, mainly because I wore it on it's own and I needed to build up the dark navy jelly base.  If you layered over black or navy you would only need one coat. I used two coats of top coat, Glitter Tamer and Seche Vite - and the result was glassy smooth.

Absolutely beautiful polish, but sadly this is the polish I was wearing when I busted my nail, so I have sad (and ouchie) memories of wearing it.

Here is Shimmering Snowcap, which I wore exactly one week after busting my nail last week, so these are my one week grown out nubbins.

Shimmering Snowcap is just beautiful.  I reminds me of Lynnderella Love, Lace and Lilacs with the addition of the copper coloured iridescent squares.  At some angles the iridescent squares look transparent light blue, but when the light hits them you get to see the copper glow.  This is one dabbled coat over OPI Don't Pretzel my Buttons. This only has one layer of Seche Vite top coat applied, but I did add a layer of Ulta3 Non-chip after taking these photos and seeing it a little bumpy.

Femme Fatale polishes are available from the Femme Fatale Cosmetics site, although they are only available for delivery to Australia.

These polishes were provided for review.
