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).
Femme Fatale Maiden’s Patience, 4 coats plus topcoat.
Outside in full sun…
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…
Well, are you as confused as me??
Well, there we have it!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
The polish in this post is from my own collection and was purchased by me.
