Femme Fatale Maiden’s Patience / 2015 Midsummer Night Collection

Hey everyone! This polish has me so confused!  The description from the maker is this, “a pale crelly lavender-grey with turquoise shine and silver microglitter”.  So I put the polish on and think, “Whaaaaat, there’s no lavender here at all. I see a silvery white base with teal shimmer and holo glitter/microglitter”.  Like no purple, no lavender AT ALL is visible to my eye. I turn my fingers this way and that, nope, no purple or lavender.  Not even the bottle looks lavender.


THEN I take my pictures.  Almost every single one is purple!!  Last night in my dark office, purple. Today in full sun, purple. In shade, purple. Inside with indirect light, purple. With flash, purple.  Bottle shot, purple.

So I’m doing this post, but not sure what to say about the polish.  It’s beautiful. It would be perfect for a wintry snowy day. That’s what it looks like in real life.  A wintry wonderland with glistening snow (and NO purple!!).  But my camera doesn’t usually lie (nor I’m sure does the maker of the polish!), so there is probably some purple in there and maybe it will show on your skintone whereas it doesn’t on mine.  I don’t know.

It’s beautiful though. I did have to thin the polish when I got it and I did do 4 thin coats. Three coats looked just fine to me but when I took my first set of photos I could see streaks that were not visible to my eyes.  So 3-4 coats. Only one coat of topcoat.

So, here are my photos. I deleted most of them and these seem to be the closest representative of what I see in real life (and I don’t color correct my photos).

Outside in shade. These are probably the closest I have to what I see. They are showing just a tad too gray…

Indoors without flash. These aren’t too far off, but a tad too dark…

About Me & My Blog
My blog is a beauty based blog, specifically about Nail Polish: Nail Polish swatches, Nail Polish comparisons, Nail Polish collections, my Manicure of the Day. All content and photos are my own property and cannot be used without my express written consent.
My name is Paula and I live in Canada right now with my hubby of many years and Chico my “baby”. You will see him featured periodically at the end of a post (the dog, not the hubby). 🙂
I love collecting and wearing nail polish and have a room full to prove it. If you ever want to see a comparison of a nail polish I feature, let me know in the comments and if I have it, I will show it!
I started this blog as a way to document my manicure of the day. I do enjoy swatching nail polish collections too though. I do my best to describe the nail polish as I see it. I am always honest in my reviews of all nail polish. I also try to get color accurate photos, but I hardly ever color correct my photos. If they are not really true to color, I will mention it in the post. If I do happen to color correct I will mention that too. 
You will usually see a lot of photos in my posts. I like to show off the nail polish in many different lighting situations and angles so you really get a feel for the nail polish.
I truly appreciate everyone who stops by my blog to look around. I love seeing so many people from so many countries all around the world who visit. I hope you all like what you see and will follow my blog and come back again!
I would love to hear from you in the comments of any posts that move you – either good or bad! I will always answer!
I am RealPolishFanatic at Makeup Alley (MUA). I’m usually hanging out in the nail care board over there. You can message me there.
If you want to chat away from the blog, you can email me at lovemychico (at) gmail (dot) com. 
I would love to hear from you! 
Happy polishing!!
