Femme Fatale (Australia) Swatch and Review

 press sample 
It's hump day! If you're in the US, who doesn't chuckle each and every time you see the Geico "hump day" commercial? I need a life, no? LOL. Luckily I have some awesome polish to show you. Femme Fatale Cosmetics is an Australian indie that creates mineral-based cosmetics and 3-free nail lacquers. Femme Fatale is also an international stockist of some of my fave indies including Cirque, Emily de Molly and Girly Bits.

I was really excited when Sophie, the founder, contacted me about swatching. And I was NOT disappointed. It takes a lot to get me excited about nail polish. My daughter and I made audible gasps as we unpacked the box. These are gorgeous! In fact, my box of goodies held one of my new all-time favorite polishes! So let's start there!

This is two coats of Fatal Attraction, a dark magenta pink loaded with scattered holo particles. It dries rough and matte, but topcoat (I used two coats) brings out an awesome shine. My indoor photo doesn't do it justice. This is seriously a breathtaking polish. End of story.

Gravity Lapse is a purplish-gray linear holo that shifts from pink to green. The shift isn't picked up well in my photo...but you can certainly see the crazy holo. Beautiful. My swatch is two easy coats.

Twilight Meteorite is a complex polish. It's super sparkly and duochrome at the same time. The pink/blue flecks really twinkle in the light. Sophie says layering Twilight Meteorite over a darker base will make the color shift even more prominent. My swatch is four coats.

Mirror of Dawn is a medium gray, silvery linear holo with a golden shine. Silver with a golden shine? It's very cool. My swatch is two coats.

Ruby Hare is a coppery, deep mauve with a strong linear holo. I love this shade of purple. My swatch is two coats.

And here's my second fave of the bunch, Maddening Whispers. It looks like a grey/green/purply shade in the bottle, but is surprisingly purple on the nail. Again, the holo is stunning. The formula was super smooth. This is two coats.

Sophie has really produced some amazing super-holos. Just imagine what these look like in the sunlight! I'm super impressed with the complexity of the colors and the easy formula!

These shades are available now in the Femme Fatale store. Femme Fatale holo shades retail for $12.50USD for a 12ML bottle. For upcoming releases and other brand news, follow Femme Fatale on facebook, twitter and instagram!
