Femme Fatale Cosmetics Cydonia Glimmer

Hello! I’m bringing you Femme Fatale Cosmetics’ colour of the month for August 2015 tonight. It’s called Cydonia Glimmer and I love it. I had to quickly Google Cydonia as I thought I’d heard the word a few times and it turns out that not only is it in the title of the Muse song “Knights of Cydonia”, it’s also a region of Mars. See, nail polish makes learning fun! πŸ™‚

Cydonia Glimmer is a raspberry jelly filled with flakies, magenta shards (love!) and violet-blue shimmer. It’s also got the tiniest hint of holo through it. It’s a really fun polish and although it’s a jelly, I had no problem with opacity at two coats, which is what you see here with a top coat of Seche. Application was a bit trciky though. I had to use the method I like to call “drag and dab” where after a super thin layer of polish you go back over and dab at the bald spots. I’ve done this a few times so application time isn’t overly slow, but I would suggest you take your time if you’re not used to the method. As you can see it’s definitely worth it!

What I liked best about this polish is how it always seemed to change. There’s a lot going on in there. Plus, it’s a little bit girly yet a little bit different. I wore it for a few days and got a couple of compliments on my nails, which is always nice. Unfortunately though you can’t buy this polish anymore from Femme Fatale Cosmetics as it was only sold during its monthly presale. You could check other stockists of Femme Fatale Cosmetics to see if they have it, though, if you’re interested. Thanks for reading!
