Femme Fatale Cosmetics April 2015 Collection Swatches + Review

- PROVIDED FOR REVIEW -

Hey everyone! I'm very excited to share today's swatches with you all - it's the latest release from Femme Fatale Cosmetics, and it consists of seven gorgeous polishes inspired by the Brothers Grimm fairytale, Snow White.

Can we just take a moment to drool over the gorgeous colors in this collection? I am just obsessed with cool tones like purples and blues, and this collection is just full of them! All of the formulas were as usual for Femme Fatale, slightly thick but easy to work with. Let's jump into it, shall we?


Glass Coffin is a gorgeous thermal packed with a sparkling green shimmer. In cold temperatures, this one has a pale lavender hue - but in warm temperatures,  it turns to a rich shade of blue! I was unable to capture the color shift (because to be honest, I didn't realize it was a thermal!) Shown above is two easy coats with top coat.


Here is a close up in the bottle and on the nail. That green shimmer is just intoxicating!


Who Is The Fairest of Them All? is another thermal (I seriously can't believe I didn't realize these were thermals!), a glitter packed fuchsia pink that turns into a beautiful clear shimmer when warm. (You can see the gorgeous transition on the Femme Fatale website though!) Shown above is two coats with top coat. It's hard to say about the opacity because as I was applying them, they seemed kind of sheer (again, me stupidly not realizing the thermal quality), but the pink is fully opaque in two coats.


Here is a close up in the bottle and on the nail.


Bodice Laces is a stunning royal purple that's packed with fuchsia shimmer, glitters, and multichrome flakes. What a unique combination! I really love the use of the multichrome flakes in a fully opaque polish. Shown above is two coats with top coat.


Let's take a moment to drool over the close up in the bottle and on the nail. Wow!


Poisoned Apple is probably my favorite of the bunch - it's a dusty shade of blue with a slight green duochrome shift, and a stunning red shimmer (as well as scattered holo dust!). You might recall in my first Femme Fatale review that I found myself entranced by the androgyny of these polishes - how they aren't distinctly feminine - and I think this shade is a perfect example of that. Shown above is two easy coats with top coat.


In the close up, this bottle shot almost looks like a starry night sky, doesn't it?


Art of Witchcraft is the super sparkly cousin of Poisoned Apple. It's got a rich, blackened teal base with an intense fuchsia shimmer, and it's packed with holographic microglitters! Another absolute stunner, this one is fully opaque in two coats with top coat.


In the close up, I can see more variation of glitters - red or fuchsia metallic microglitters, perhaps?! This polish is even deeper than I thought!


Weed In Her Heart is a blue-green jelly packed with blue and fuchsia shimmer. This is the only one in the collection that I wasn't totally in love with - possibly because I'm not usually a fan of sheer polishes, or maybe because the others are just so complex that they dull this one out a bit! Either way, here's two coats with top coat. You can definitely go for a third coat if you are looking to cover your VNL (visible nail line!).


Here is a closeup in the bottle and on the nail. I can't deny that it looks stunning in the bottle - I just wish it was fully opaque!


Last but absolutely not least, we have Mirror, Mirror, On the Wall..., the sparkliest shade of them all! This shade is an icy blue packed with fuchsia shimmer and a ton of silver holographic glitters. It's definitely a great statement polish to rock if you're want your manicure to shine all night. I can imagine this paired with a classy black dress for a night out. Shown above is two coats with top coat.

Overall, I am very impressed by most of these shades. I'm seeing a definite distinct style from Femme Fatale, and I really love the unique blends and colors. I hope they continue to produce such stunning polishes!

These shades are currently on presale at the Femme Fatale Cosmetics website, but they are only available to order until April 5th. After that, they will be available from other international retailers, so make sure to follow them on Facebook to stay updated.
