See the multichrome effect in the bottle and where I’ve shone light on the nails, again trying to capture all looks of this at once.

And here’s  a closer peek at all that glorious holo and glitter… which I’ve to capture the sparkle of below.

I hope you enjoyed Scoops Ahoy – Femme Fatale HHC, Oct 2018 – Polish Swatches photos.

See below for details and notes on this polish.



Name: Scoops Ahoy – available online at HellaHandmadeCreations. Links & purchase details below.
Brand: Femme Fatale
Collection: Hella Handmade Creations [HHC] Colour (or family): Purple-orange-green
Type & Finish: ‎Multi-chrome
Size: 9ml / 0.3oz

Formula & Application notes:
Smooth with a top coat. This took 3 thin coats for full opacity, shown with top coat. It is opaque in 3 coats even if thinner, and of course a glossy top coat is recommended due to the glitters. It will both smooth the surface and create a lovely sparkle effect of the holo.

A purple-orange-green multi-chrome filled with silver holographic glitters and red iridescent glitters.  They recommend layering this one up carefully to get an even distribution of glitters. I also advise you to roll the bottle a little before you apply it to help distribute them evenly.

The Verdict:
This has such a lovely and vampy quality too, which is perfect for this time of year if you are in the throes of Autumn or Fall. It really sparkles with the holo in direct light and is a pretty polish.

      Hey there Kelli. It’s so extra with those flakes – if you like darks you’ll love this one.

      No, you don’t have to be part of the Facebook group, (I think in the early days you did) but you will get sneak peeks and stuff if you are. Just head to the website to purchase during the window listed in the details. HTH! 😉 Thanks for stopping by.
