Hey guys! Today I have a swatch and review of some Beautometry exclusive Femme Fatale Cosmetics including all 4 polishes from the Polish The Year Away Collection! These polishes are only available at Beautometry and they are all so incredibly beautiful and pretty unique to my collection. These were sent to me for review and retail for $12 each.
First up is Crystal Droplets which is the silvery wintery shade from the Polish The Year Away Collection. Crystal Droplets is described as a “pale white crelly base with aqua shimmer, red fine flakes/sparks, and metallic silver glitters.” This polish is in a pretty sheer base and at 3 coats built up just to the edge of being opaque for me. I do believe for personal use I would go in for a fourth coat but the aqua shimmer does do a great job at masking any visible nail line. The formula was very easy to work with and I love the silver glitters in here!
Next up is the juicy summery shade from the Polish The Year Away Collection, Summertide! Summertide is described as a “teal crelly with iridescent and holo glitters, silver, and chrome flakes.” This polish does have a bit of a jelly base and at 3 coats was again right on the edge of being opaque for me. I do live how vibrant and sparkly the finished result is!
Next up is the Customer Appreciation shade for 2016, Planetary Void! Planetary void is described as a “brown crelly base with turquoise and green glitters.” This has got to be one of the most unique polishes in my collection and I love it! It does have a bit of a thicker formula that tends to pool a little so nice thin coats are in order. At 3 coats Planetary Void built up perfectly opaque and a good topcoat helped smooth the larger green holographic glitters down. I can’t wait to use this polish for Earth Day nail art!
Next is Crapemyrtle, the spring time polish from the Polish The Year Away collection! I think I am on a bit of a thermal kick right now but this polish is incredible and my top pick for today! Crapemyrtle is described as a “pinkish purple to purple thermal with soft reddish shine, iridescent glitters, and fuchsia-purple holo micro glitters.” I did find this polish to be more warm sensitive than cold, I had good coverage at 2 coats but did opt to go in for a 3rd for my swatches today. The pinkish shift is a little more sheer than the colder purple tones. The red shimmer gives this polish a “lit from within” feel and I am so in love with it!
Lastly today I have the spooky autumn shade from the Polish The Year Away collection, Hallow’s Mischief. This one is described as a “dark purple base with black and fuchsia micro glitters and soft pink/blue sparks.” This is such a deep vampy purple loaded down with micro glitters as well as some shredded holo glitters. The deep grape toned jelly base is incredibly pigmented and went on very nice in two coats, I had a little bit of sheerness to my tips so I did add a bit just there. This polish is especially gorgeous in natural sunlight!
