PRESS SAMPLE: these were sent to me for review

Hello again lovely readers! Today I have Femme Fatale’s November releases to show you all. This month we have the release of the beloved White Witch Vol. 2 collection which features several remakes of the original 2015 colors, along with a few new additions. I have several of the originals as I used to collect Femme Fatale’s like no one’s business and the re-releases are pretty spot on. I’m so excited the majority are getting revamped so that those new to indie polishes can get their hands on these pretties. I’ve included some of Sophie’s notes on each polish description in italics where there are notes on certain reformulations. Let’s take a peek!

Lion’s Breath $14 AUD– a brown (cold) to clear (warm) thermal packed full of golden holographic glitters in various sizes. This is a shade from the 2015 release following the original recipe.

Swatches show three coats with topcoat. Formula is somewhat crelly like with a bit of squish. I think most will be fully opaque between 2-3 coats. This dries down flat, so I’d suggest a good glossy topcoat.

The Secret of Secrets $14 AUD– a sheer jelly grey base that is overwhelmed by a copper sheen when layered up. This is a shade from the 2015 release following the original recipe. Within are (now discontinued) chrome copper-gold-green shifting flakes that will be using the last of for this colour and copper holographic microfine glitters. This is likely the last time this shade will ever be made again.

Swatches show three coats with topcoat. Formula is creamy and smooth, and dries down very flat.

The First Northern Witch $12.50 AUD– a cool toned grey crelly with soft copper glow, and assorted microglitters in silver, gold and bronze. Accented with soft golden microflakes. This is a shade from the 2015 release following the original recipe.

Swatches show two coats with topcoat. Formula is crelly like and easy to build up. This also dries down flat, so I’d suggest a good glossy topcoat.

Lantern Waste $14 AUD– a muted navy crème with red sheen, and red-orange-green shifting iridescent flakes. This is a shade from the 2015 release following the original recipe however it does NOT use the original flakes, and we feel the blue tints used have changed slightly from the original. The original flakes were slightly smaller and had a similar colour shift effect, however were discontinued by manufacturer’s around 5-6 years ago.

Swatches show two coats with topcoat. Formula is crelly like and smooth on application and easy to build up.

Blazing With Stars $14 AUD– a velvety deep blue jelly with superfine copper reflects and small holographic silver flakes. This is a new shade to this collection.

Swatches show three coats with topcoat. Formula is jelly but feels creamy on the brush strokes.

A High & Lonely Destiny $12.50 AUD– a stunning sheer blue jelly base packed with holographic purple microglitters. This is a new shade to this collection.

Swatches show three coats with a glitter smoothing topcoat. Formula is jelly like and builds easily as a full coverage glitter, in my opinion. This is vibrant and gorgeous in person and so sparkly in the sun. It dries down textured and thirsty, so I’d suggest a super glossy topcoat and/or a glitter smoothing topcoat.

Moonlight Statues $12.50 AUD– a magenta jelly base with soft turquoise sheen, silver holographic glitters in various sizes and scattered teal holographic glitters as well. This is a shade from the 2015 release following the original recipe.

Swatches show two coats with a glitter smoothing topcoat. Formula is jelly/crelly like and easy to build up. It does dry down a bit textured and thirsty, so I’d suggest a glitter smoothing topcoat. So much sparkle and shimmer.

Her Imperial Majesty $13 AUD– a murky purple crelly overlaid with pink shimmers and fuchsia microfine metallic glitters. This is a shade from the 2015 release following the original recipe.

Swatches show two coats with topcoat. Formula is crelly like, but very creamy on application.

Hundred Years Winter $12.50 AUD– an interesting dusty rose crème base which in some lights can lean more brown or purple; and it has a strong turquoise shine over the top. This is a shade from the 2015 release following the original recipe. The tints have changed since the original release so the colour may not be an identical match, although the original recipe is used.

Swatches show two coats with topcoat. Formula is creamy and smooth on application and builds up quickly.

Heart’s Desires $14 AUD– a sheer coral pink base that’s slightly muted by the copper reflects within. Also has superfine golden glitters, and gold-green-blue shifting crystal flakes. This is a shade from the 2015 release following the original recipe. I don’t think we were able to match the flakes to the exact same ones initially used in 2015 but it’s definitely kept quite close. This is another shade that we think will be slightly different due to tint changes, too. However overall it is matched as closely as we could manage.

Swatches show three coats with topcoat. Formula is crelly like, and easy to build up with a strong gold flakie appearance.

Light of a Dying Sun $13 AUD– a muted berry-red jelly base, full of golden microflakes and holographic glitters. This is a new shade to this collection.

Swatches show two coats with topcoat. Formula is crelly like and easy to build up. I think some might prefer a third thinner coat to finish it off, so it’ll depend on your preference.

COTM NOVEMBER (available to stockists): Marker of the Hour $12.50 AUD– a bright teal (warm) to purple (cold) thermal with metallic green microglitters in assorted sizes.

Swatches show three coats with topcoat. Formula is juicy and jelly like with a glossy squishy appearance when topped with a glossy topcoat. The temperature reactivity is strong, and easy shifts between the green and purple states.

FOTM NOVEMBER (only available to FB Fiend members): Megallanic Cloud $15 AUD– a blue based deep teal green with a slight blue duochrome shift, and golden holographic microglitters.

Swatches show two coats with topcoat. Formula has a juicy and jelly like feel when topped with a glossy topcoat, and at very extreme angles will shift to a lovely blue.
