Hey lovelies! Today I have my current nail of the day(or rather nail of the week) to show you guys. This was inspired by Sarah of Chalkboard Nails’ Candy Florals manicure where she did a floral pattern to mimic the glitter in the polish!
This was actually Mani No. 2 for me when I sat down for some nail therapy. I actually wanted to try gradient triangle nails but that failed horribly…and in a way I’m glad they did cause I wouldn’t have come up with something so cute! Let’s move on to the photos(also featuring my recently trimmed nails cause I suffered two nail breaks on my left- aka swatching- hand).
I started off with two coats of China Glaze For Audrey before using my gel pens to create the florals, dots and leaves. The other nails were topped off with Femme Fatale Cosmetics Winter Hyacinth(one of my all-time favourite FFC polishes!! <3)
I’m holding a dried blue rose in my photos! Trying to jazz up my pictures and make them prettier/much more interesting to look at. (:
As I’m so proud of this manicure, more photos are necessary. (;
Everything was topped off with a thick coat of Sally Hansen Mega Shine Top Coat.
I just applied FFC Winter Hyacinth on my right hand for all nails!
Love how I managed to get out more of those diamonds/satin hex glitters. :3
I’ve previously reviewed Winter Hyacinth so check it out here!

Hey dears, it’s Monday again! Time flies by so insanely fast…:/ Hope the week has got off to a good start for everyone!
Today I have a continuation of my swatch of The Face Shop BK901, with an accent nail of Femme Fatale Cosmetics Suspended Starlight. Before I purchased BK901, I noticed the base colour and immediately thought of FFC Glinting Lodestone as I felt they would make a great pair! Turns out it makes good undies for Suspended Starlight too! (:
Suspended Starlight is described as ” a stunning mix of deep blues, navy and sparks of bright blue all in a sheer jelly navy base. Iridescent flashes and silver holo stars / moons complete the polish, perfect for adding a little starlit sky look to your nails 🙂 We recommend use over a dark blue/navy/black base. Suspended Starlight is part of our Christmas Trio. Each bottle is made to order using a 3-Free base!”
There was no issue with glitter application for Suspended Starlight– in fact, I had to ensure I did not get too much glitter onto my nails! Unfortunately it was quite tough to get out the moon and star shaped glitters; I only managed to get one moon glitter on my thumb. Nevertheless this is possibly due to me not suspending the bottle long enough.
It’s like a galaxy happening on my nails… ❤
I also really loved the subtle flashes coming from the undies, really helped to portray the idea of night sky!
after 3 days of wear
As you can see, only my undies started having tip wear after around 3 days! I was also beginning to have urges to remove my nail polish, but I managed to resist and hold out for 5 days.
I should try swatching Suspended Starlight over a navy base too, I think this will bring out the black shard/black glitters nicely. (:
Suspended Starlight can be purchased from Femme Fatale Cosmetics(international shipping now available!) or any of their international distributors.

Hey loves, been so busy that blogging has seriously taken a back seat for now! Also, there’s some personal changes which I have been thinking about and slowly taking steps to change in my life, so sorry about the small breaks in hearing from me! I’ve also neglected our polish jewellery shop but thankfully I have Bethanie to back me up!
Okay anyways~ Here’s a manicure which I wore sometime back in August! I really really love all the indie polishes..if only I had more money to purchase them heh! This features Femme Fatale Cosmetics Glinting Lodestone and Lacquer Lust Sky’s The Limit.
I think I used 2-3 thin coats of Sky’s The Limit and one lovely coat of Glinting Lodestone over Revlon Black Lingerie. It’s so pretty…:3 and I feel both polishes really go well together! ^^ No problems with any application, and I simply love the bottles. ❤
Glinting Lodestone is described as “a dark navy jelly full of teal, blue, green, purple and highlighted by flashes of orange. ” When I heard it was going to be discontinued, I immediately snapped mine up at Beauty So Fly with a couple other beauties. Have I ever mentioned that I want to “BUY ALL THE FEMME FATALE COSMETICS” ? :3
Sky’s The Limit is described as “a baby blue linear holo.” Been wanting this shade for ages, and managed to get mine from Shoppe Eclecticco during an offer!
Hopefully university will settle down soon(haha I’m kidding myself) but I’m having a really great time with all the people there! (: With luck I should be able to tend to the shop soon!

Hey dears! Today I have a swatch/NOTD with Femme Fatale Cosmetics Winter Hyacinth!(: I wore this manicure a week back, and I loved it so much! ^^
Here I have it paired with Lacquer Lust Sky’s The Limit along with studs from the Born Pretty Store.
Winter Hyacinth is described as “a soft teal creme polish with white diamonds and hexes, as well as fuchsia and rose hexes both in metallic and holographic finishes”. I’ve swatched 1(or 2, I can’t remember! :/) over China Glaze For Audrey. (:
It applied like a dream and I could not stop staring at it the whole day! I honestly did not know there were white hexes(they looked translucent on the nail) in the bottle, so when I got them out on my nail, I squealed. :3
No dabbing for glitters was needed, though I did suspend my bottle upside down on the table as the white diamonds were at the bottom. I could get them out with ease afterwards. (:
Winter Hyacinth was really tricky to photograph! Love me some blue polishes though, they just look right on my skin. (:
I’m so glad I received this polish- it was part of my anniversary gift from the bf hehe! ^^ Of course we sat down together to pick the polishes, and it was a tough time narrowing down the list to just 5 bottles.
Cinderella hand makes an appearance! (:
Femme Fatale Cosmetics can be purchased from the Femme Fatale Cosmetics site. Please note that they only ship within Australia, but I think it’s being revised soon! Visit here for a list of international stockists (:
