My base color for today's mani is Catrice San Francisco (Big City Life Limited Edition), a nice teal polish with a subtle shimmer. Formula was good, I used two medium coats for opactiy. Don't forget to ust basecoat with this one, maybe even a double layer, I used only one and it stained.
On top of San Francisco, I added one coat of Femme Fatale Spindleweb, "a sheer deep jewel toned blue with strong green shimmers, suitable for layering over other shades rather than wearing alone, and filled with scatterings of blue, green and iridescence in various sizes."

Application was easy, only the biggest hexes needed a little placing. I finished with one coat of Nail Pattern Boldness Glitter Food and one coat of sally Hansen Insta-Dri.
Femme Fatale polishes are available at their shop (Australia only), Llarowe, Harlow & Co. , Norway Nails and Shoppe Ecclectico.
Ahhhh perfect reference to Monet and I so see his water lilys when looking at your nails - perfect!!! Another stunner of Femme Fatale - they sure know how to do glitters, right? Oh and very, very pretty on you :-)ReplyDelete
Thank you, Christine! It's the perfect mani to match your Monet post :-)Delete
I'm really into the Aussies at the moment, Femme Fatale and Emily de Molly, I just love their glitters!
Right, we were SOOOOO synched ;-) I was delighted :-)Delete
Great minds think alike ;-)Delete
Super gorgeous! Spindleweb is just beautiful. I bet it looks great on many other colors too.ReplyDelete
Thank you! I'm sure it does, as long as the base color is dark enogh. Due to the tinted base, it will surely look patchy over light bases, just like Hydraxia does http://aglayanails.blogspot.ch/2013/06/mint-candy-hydraxia.htmlDelete
hach schon wieder einfach nur wundervoll :)ReplyDelete
Vielen Dank, das kann ich nie genug hören, nur weiter so :-)Delete
Just beautiful! You and Christine are killing me with these Monet posts!! :DReplyDelete
Thank you, Melissa! The Monet (almost) twin posts weren't planned that way, but a lucky coincidence :-)Delete
Spindleweb is SO gorgeous <3ReplyDelete
It really is, I'm glad you like it, too :-)Delete
Erinnert mich an Meerjungfrauen :)ReplyDelete
Bei der Hitzewelle wären wir doch wohl alle lieber Meerjungfrauen, als bei der Arbeit zu schwitzen ;-)Delete
