Today I have one more of the colourful polishes released by Femme Fatale this summer to show you. I already featured the purple Sea Pony on the blog and today I finally pulled out the teal Snapvine out of my huge untrieds pile. For swatches and my thoughts please go under the jump.
Femme Fatale Snapvine is a deep teal-green crelly with blue tones and a scattering of neon pink and green hexes of various size as well as some holographic green glitters.
The base is more like a thin creme than a jelly, it’s just not as viscous, doesn’t have that jelly “depth”. I’m having a hard time explaining this, but let me just say it’s quite opaque and goes on in a very thin layer.
My swatches show two layers of Femme Fatale Snapvine, but although the neon glitters are thin, the base dries even thinner and you will need a good amount of topcoat to smooth it out.
Because of the shade and its good pigmentation, I feel like I should mention that this polish can potentially stain, as teal cremes do. So double up on basecoat! I used a coat of regular basecoat on top of my peel-off one and experienced no staining.
Despite application not being the easiest, I liked this shade, it looks fun on the nails – sort of like a tropical jungle %) How do you like it? Do you own any shades from this colourful collection by Femme Fatale (pssst – Color4Nails have most of them in stock and on clearance!)
