Femme Fatale Lacquer Mermaids in the Mist

Saturday, April 6, 2013
I had been lemming this polish for quite a while so during Femme Fatale Lacquer's last restock, I grabbed it without a second thought.

Look at that mix of glitter! It is a wine jelly polish with teal satin hexes, teal holo hexes, smaller gold and silver holo hexes as well as micro holo particles. When I first saw pictures of it, I think my heart skipped a beat. There is something just so wonderful about this combination of colors.

Here, I'm wearing two coats of it over two coats of Zoya Katherine* which matched the base color of Mermaids in the Mist quite well. The formula was so wonderfully smooth and glossy, a pleasure to apply. No fishing for glitters either. One thing to note was that it is pretty strong in the chemical odor department.

Direct sunlight.

You know how sometimes polishes only look great in direct sunlight? I think that this polish is just the opposite. I love how it looks in low or indoor lighting, and I think it is the most stunning when it is in the shade or it is cloudy out. However in direct sunlight the holo glitter is a little overwhelming for me (something my camera wasn't able to capture), a little too disco ball for me. The first picture in the post was taken in the shade while the macro shots were taken in doors in indirect lighting.

There was a slight mishap when I received my order, this batch was missing one ingredient- the gold holo glitter. Cynthia, the owner of FFL responded immediately to my messages though and quickly remedied the issue, so I am very pleased with the customer service and level of personal responsibility. 

Priced at a reasonable $8 with $2.75 shipping at Femme Fatale Lacquer. Be sure to follow Cynthia on Instagram too, for updates (@femmefatalelacquer)!

This might be newpolish-itis speaking, but it is currently my favorite glitter polish! What is yours?
