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!

I hope you enjoyed my Coniferae Femme Fatale Polish Swatch for COTM July 2018. What do you think??

See below for details and notes on this polish.

Brand: Femme Fatale
Collection: COTM

Type & Finish: ‎Mixed, Multichrome

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.

The Verdict:
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 😉
