Femme Fatale Jewels From The Deep - Lena Talks Beauty

Femme Fatale is an Australian indie cosmetics brand, and for a very long time I have lusted over them but I’ve never bought anything from there before….until now! I saw a post about their Midsummer Night’s Dream collection that included swatches of every single polish and I just couldn’t say no! This is Jewels From the Deep, which is a vibrant teal-blue base with green shimmers, olive green chameleon flakes, scattered holo and more!

Why leave nail polish just on your nails? Anastasia is a fellow member of PANZ (Polish Addicts of New Zealand) and the person behind OlliePop and Luci. OlliePop and Luci, named after her adorable cats, is a brand of handmade nail polish, jewellery and other crafts. Anastasia has kindly provided one of her nail polish pendants for a giveaway! It was hard for me to choose which one was best, she had so many beautiful options, but I think this purple, blue, and red glittery one is just gorgeous!

The pendant is made with nail polish in a 25mm diameter silver plated pendant, on a 50cm long silver chain. It sits at a nice length, just above the neckline on an average tank top or t-shirt – as you can see in the picture below. I promise I haven’t been wearing this, it was just for demonstration purposes!

This polish is by indie nail polish seller Lyn B Designs and it’s called ‘My Squishy’, from the ‘Nemo? That’s a Nice Name’ collection. My Squishy is a pink crelly base which is absolutely full of pink, purple, blue, and aqua glitters in all different shapes and sizes. I wore this polish last week, and people who saw my nails loved it. I’ve got swatches later in this post, so keep reading!
