I told you a couple of days ago that I found a “new” Dutch drugstore brand for me — Teeez. Well, their nail polish line isn’t big at the moment, but there are some truly gorgeous polishes there… And I mean gorgeous, drool worthy, etc.
I’ve picked up four so far, and today I’m showing you Femme Fatale, which has to be the most intriguing and complex red shimmer/sparkle/microglitter/don’t-even-know-what-to-call-the-finish polish I’ve seen.
Very difficult to photograph to do it justice, but I did my best.
Here it is in the shade:
Allow me to describe this beauty — Femme Fatale has a cool red jelly base that is almost identical to China Glaze’s Ruby Pumps. But instead of rounded glitter, this is packed full of irregular (almost flakie-like) glitter pieces is red, gold and violet. The little flashes of violet that are visible in all lighting conditions add a whole new dimension to this one.
It’s opaque in two coats. And now, I’m gonna overwhelm you with sunshine pictures:
And now you have to trust me when I tell you these pictures don’t even do this red justice.
I almost never do close-ups of polishes, but with this one I felt like I had to.
I mean, can you see how complex this is?
I don’t think I’m ever gonna buy a red glitter polish again… I mean, what can beat this?
I’ll leave you with one more pic of my most photographed polish. 🙂
