Why, hello! Tonight I bring you a long overdue post of Femme Fatale Cosmetics’ December Christmas 2016 COTM. There’s two polishes that are quite complementary and don’t necessarily look like “Christmas”. Unfortunately these polishes aren’t available on the Femme Fatale Cosmetics website anymore, but I had a quick Google and found them over at Hypnotic Polish (Europe-based) if you do happen to fall in love.

Because these pics are from way back last year, you’ll notice I have a different nail shape. I did the pointy nail look for a couple of months before changing back to squoval in the New Year. Let me know what you think; maybe I should take them up again?

Tinsel Twinkles is a deep purple crelly with iridescent glitter and a smattering of holo microglitter. It’s really pretty and wearable, isn’t it? From memory, in the first picture I’m wearing two coats without a top coat in the first pic and then in the macro, I’ve topped the two coats with Seche Vite. I definitely recommend wearing a top coat as the glitter can stick out a bit and a top coat just smooths it all over nicely. Formula-wise, I used thick coats but you could probably do three layers of thin coats to get it to the same level of opacity you see here.

Festive Blithe is a gorgeous polish and I love staring at that macro! It’s a teal jelly with pink shimmer, teal holo and iridescent glitter. This is two coats with a top coat of Seche. You can still see some slight VNL at the tip, but I kind of like it like that! The formula on this one was just as good as Tinsel Twinkles; very manageable and I even found the glitter to play a bit nicer when on the nail.

So, what do you think? Sorry I held these pics back from you. I felt so awful when I didn’t post them during December. But at least you get to see them now. Thanks for reading!
