Today I have a preview of the latest coming month’s limited edition installments from beloved Aussie Indie brand Femme Fatale. This polish is Scoops Ahoy – Femme Fatale’s inclusion in the Hella Handmade Creations (HHC) for October 2018 – Polish Swatches below.
The full details and description of this lacquer is listed below the images in The Rundown section.
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.
Bottle shots! To really show off that sparkle. I love the vampy quality of this shade.
And a slightly darker version
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.
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.
