Femme Fatale ~ Steamy Romance



Femme Fatale ~ Steamy Romance
Bright magenta linear holo

Steamy Romance was part of the Valentine 2014 trio. The other two are “Bed of Roses” which is a green glitter topper with hearts and “Enchantress” which is a metallic duochrome that shifts between teal and purple. I only got Steamy Romance of the three – I do love holo and couldn’t miss this beauty!

The formula is great and Steamy Romance is pretty much a one coater. I did two to make sure that the camera wouldn’t pick up irregularities unseen by the human eye! Drying time is pretty good.

Here’s a sunshine picture; two coats, no topcoat:

 
Isn’t that just an amazingly beautiful colour? And look at those rainbows!!


This picture is taken in my lightbox. The rainbows still want to play.


I made a zigzag pattern on each nail with Glittering Elements’ “Don’t pet the Cheshire”, a lovely deep purple holo that I showed you here. I just used a striper brush to make the zigzags with. I topcoated the entire thing before I took these last pictures:


The zigzags clearly show that I need to practice my freehand skills more. They’re not perfect, but I love them anyway ^_^


Here’s a picture of the box the polish came in:


This is a gorgeous colour, I really like it! The quality of the polish is fantastic and I obviously love the rainbows!

  1. both polishes are beautiful! I love the zigzags... I don't think your freehand skills need to be perfect... no one is going to look that close in real life anyway ;)

    1. It's true, and I tend to be my own worst critic. Looking back at the pictures doesn't make me think "ugh, they're not perfect" at all :)
