I have a preview of the latest coming month’s limited edition installments from beloved Aussie Indie brand Femme Fatale. The Star – the Femme Fatale Fiend of the Month (FOTM) for Aug 2018 – Polish Swatches below. The pre-order opened today, so be fast. All the juicy details are below.
The Star contains a deep blurple (blue-purple) base with a strong aqua-green shine and scattered holographic particles. I’ve taken photos in various light to try and accurately capture the shift for you, as with the first. It is visible on the nail and not just in the bottle.
This is gorgeous and I recommended it if you are a lover of blues, greens, multi-chromes and scatter holographic style polishes. Because this one has all of those combined! I’ll definitely be wearing this one regularly (I actually had it on the whole week after swatching it).
The full details and description of this lacquer is listed below the images in The Rundown section.
Here is a look at the packaging for the 2 polishes.
I hope you’ve enjoyed The Star – Femme Fatale FOTM, Aug 2018 – Polish Swatches photos.
Check out the August 2018 COTM here.
Name: The Star – available here at Femme Fatale online. See here for stockists & distributors.
Brand: Femme Fatale
Colour (or family): Blurple, Aqua
Type & Finish: Holo
Size: 9ml / 0.3oz
The Star contains a deep blurple (blue-purple) base with strong aqua-green shine and scattered holographic particles. Smooth and flawless application, this is also opaque in 3 thin coats, shown here with top coat.
You can really notice the shift on the nails and not just in the bottle, both the polishes in this set have that feature. And the scattered holo really sparkles. This polish captured my heart immediately. I recommend you keep your appliation coats thin so that the holographic particles from the layers below can shine through. It gives it an extra nice depth.
I swatched this one last and wore it for a whole week with very little damage. YMMV with wear, but I am happy with this shade.
I love holos, and think that this is a perfectly paired set for the month of August. Both work well individually, but if you’re a Facebook Fiend group member, see below for how to become one, I truly think it is worth ordering both as a set. You can see how well they are matched in the first set of swatches for the COTM I already posted!
I cant pick a favourite out of the two, but Femme Fatale always have a knack for delivering beautifully crafted polishes, that apply nicely. And Sophie, the owner and creator, always makes delightful eye-candy in a range of creative combinations.
