PRESS SAMPLE: these were sent to me for an honest review
Hello lovely readers!! I’m back with a massive post to show you all! Femme Fatale has the next installment to their Enchanted Fables series. If you’re new to the brand, these are typically larger sets inspired by various fables written by various authors and versions of classic fairy tales. Per usual we have a gorgeous mix of finishes. The full collection is 27 polishes in total, two of them being free with purchase of the full collection. I also have February’s FOTM and COTM at the end of the post. Let’s take a peek!
All polishes are shown between 2-3 coats with a glossy topcoat. Those with glitters are shown with a glitter smoothing topcoat in addition to a glossy topcoat. I had no issues with any of them, and the thermals were very sensitive to temperature and easy to shift between their warm and cold states. All of the polishes in this collection dried down to a flat finish, so I’d suggest a glossy topcoat for all of them. Those with glitters had a bit of texture, so I’d strongly suggest a glitter smoothing topcoat for those.
