femme fatale lake of shining waters swatch from the green gables collection

Femme Fatale - Lake of Shining Waters

Lake of Shining Waters is a vibrant blue packed with green-purple shifting duo chrome shimmers and scatters holographic particles. It is recommended to use a protective base coat as this colour *may* stain. Opaque in 3 coats depending on your application technique.

My swatch of Lake of Shining Waters is shown in 2 easy coats, paired with top coat. Formula was smooth, easy to work with, not thick and covered beautifully within 2 coats. I didn't find the purple shift to be very prominent and is only slightly visible within certain angles - wasn't able to capture it within my swatch photos. The coverage within the 1st coat was fantastic and just love the way this polish glows! This polish naturally dies down to a satin finish and recommend pairing with a glossy top coat for a high shine finish.

This polish will retail for $13.00 RRP before GST

femme fatale tree's talking in their sleep swatch from the green gables collection

Femme Fatale - Tree's Talking in Their Sleep

Tree's Talking in Their Sleep is a soft brown (cold) to clear (warm) thermal packed with an ethereal emerald green glow and luminescent green-blue shifting flakes. We recommend 3 coats due to being a clear-colour thermal you may still have VNL at times. Extend your shelf life on thermals by storing them in a well sealed, cool and dark location.

My swatch of Tree's Talking in Their Sleep is shown in 3 coats, paired with top coat. The 1st coat is quite sheer and it might have you feeling a tad taken back, but it did build up nicely. The flakes within this polish create so much dimension once build up in 3 coats and just love the shift on this polish, as it's unlike anything I own. This naturally dries down on the satin side and recommend using a glossy top coat to bring out shine. I showed this swatch to my boyfriend and his words were, "woah, it looks like snake skin!".

This polish will retail for $13.00 RRP before GST

femme fatale woodsy wild and lonesome swatch from the green gables collection

Femme Fatale - Woodsy, Wild & Lonesome

Woodsy, Wild & Lonesome is a deep aubergine purple base with a quirky olive-blue shifting multi chrome, packed with silver holographic micro glitter and holographic particles. 2-3 are recommended depending on your application.

My swatch of Woodsy, Wild & Lonesome is shown in 2 coats, paired with top coat. Formula was smooth, offered great coverage in 1 coat and applied beautifully. It naturally dries down with a satin finish and a top coat is recommended for a glossy finish.

This polish will retail for $13.00 RRP before GST.

femme fatale this freckled witch swatch from the green gables collection


Femme Fatale - This Freckled Witch

This Freckled Witch is a red to greeny-copper multi chrome packed with silver holographic glitter and holographic particles. This shade has the same finish as Jareth, and will do well under a thick glossy top coat. We recommend you apply thin, even coats and it should be opaque for you at 2-3.

My swatch of This Freckled Witch is shown in 2 easy coats, paired with top coat. The shift in this is very strong and just blew me away! The formula allowed for a pretty easy application and was surprised with the coverage within the 1st coat. Once the coats dry down, the glitters become a bit more textured and highly recommend using a thick glossy top coat to seal this beauty in for a smooth finish. This polish naturally dies down to a satin/matte finish and highly recommend pairing with a glossy top coat for added shine! This one is super shifty and have quite a few photo's to share!

This polish will retail for $13.00 RRP before GST.

femme fatale my lifelong sorrow swatch from the green gables collection

Femme Fatale - My Lifelong Sorrow

My Lifelong Sorrow is a pale champagne pink with golden glow (warm) through to a bolder orange with golden glow (cold). 3 coats are recommended. Extend the shelf life of thermals by storing them in a well sealed cool and dark location.

My swatch of My Lifelong Sorrow is shown in 2 easy coats, paired with top coat. Formula is smooth and had zero issues. I realized after the fact of taking the photo's that this was a thermal and at that point had already removed it. Having said that, my swatches showcase this beauty in it's cold state. This naturally dries down to a satin finish and recommend pairing with a glossy top coat for shine.
This polish is beautiful and adore the glow it has!

This polish will retail for $13.00 RRP before GST.

femme fatale currant wine swatch from the green gables collection

Femme Fatale - Currant Wine

Currant Wine is a berry creme with a blue glow. Opaque in 2-3 coats. May dry semi-matte due to the pigments used, so a top coat is recommended.

My swatch of Currant Wine is shown in 3 thin coats, paired with top coat. The formula is the thinnest of the entire collection, but built up nicely in 3 thin coats. The great thing about a thinner formula is the coats dry down quickly. I love the shift in this polish, subtle but pretty!

This polish will retail for $11.50 RRP before GST.

femme fatale a kindred spirit swatch from the green gables collection


Femme Fatale - A Kindred Spirit

A Kindred Spirit is a cool-toned dusty-rose pink with a blue glow and holographic particles. A beautiful work-friendly shade. It is on the sheer side otherwise this type of crelly base overwhelms the holo particles, so 3 coats is recomended.

My swatch of A Kindred Spirit is shown in 3 coats, paired with top coat. Like mentioned, the formula is a bit more on the sheer side but offers more coverage within the first coat in comparison to Currant Wine. This is a very pretty soft and feminine shade. Formula was great and love the subtle holographic accents.

This polish will retail for $13.00 RRP before GST.

femme fatale white way of delight swatch from the green gables collection

Femme Fatale - White Way of Delight

White Way of Delight is a off-white crelly base with a soft copper glow, filled with white and silver holographic glitters of various sizes and holographic particles. It is highly recommend to take your time with this one - thin, even coats is the best way to apply it and it will need a glossy top coat to finish. 3-4 coats are recommended depending on how thin it is applied.

My swatch of White Way of Delight is shown in 3 coats, paired with top coat. Once dried, the glitters do become raised with texture and using a thick glossy top coat will seal the deal! This polish makes me feel like I'm in a snow globe and can't tell you all how much I adore white polishes with gold/copper shimmer shifts - ugh, it won my heart over so easily!!

This will retail for $13.00 RRP before GST.
