Indie’s are many a nailista’s favourite, mine included. Today I have a preview of the coming monthly installments from the beloved Aussie Indie brand Femme Fatale. Meet Coniferae – the Femme Fatale Colour of the Month (COTM) for July 2018 – Polish Swatches below. Let’s just take a moment to appreciate those flakes…
All photos taken in various angles and lights to best capture the essence of these polishes, so you can see the range of looks they have. I hope you enjoy my swatches 😉 The full details and description of this lacquer is listed below the images in The Rundown section.
OMG! Get a load of that lovely shift. And those flakies. And that slight holo!
It has flakies and micro holo particles in a multichrome base, look at the bottle shots for close-ups on this.
Here’s the two polishes for July side by side.
And a quick peek at the lovely packaging these come in. A box for each, which is a nice touch.
I hope you enjoyed my Coniferae Femme Fatale Polish Swatch for COTM July 2018. What do you think??

Formula & Application notes:
Coniferae has a muddy green-ish jelly base with a pink/reddish-gold multichrome overlay. It contains iridescent red-green flakies and scattered holographic particles. You can see these particularly in the close ups and the bottle shots.
Smooth and opaque, this is 2 coats with top coat. Went on easily and even coverage of all the inclusions as you can see from the images.
I love dark shades especially at this time of year, and this one has lots of personality. There’s a delightful green shimmer running through it, which you can really see in certain lights – it is pretty sneaky in photographs though, but I did my best to capture it.
An amazing and slightly vampy shade that can be worn anytime, but seems particularly perfect for Fall/Autumn or Winter. I wore it most of the week and convinced myself it made my hands feel that little bit warmer in the cold weather haha. True story 😉
