Femme Fatale Under-Light by Itself vs. Layered

I like this better layered than by itself, but I swatched both so that you can decide before you buy.  I'm not sure how limited this is, since it was a Color4Nails exclusive.  I don't like to wear sheers that show VNL, especially when my nails are long like this, it just doesn't seem right.  I love this one, but does it have to be so sheer?  It has a lot going on: Holo dust, teal holographic shattered glitter, duochrome purple to gold microglitter, and translucent green iridescent hexagons.  I like how busy it was, but from the swatch I saw, I was expecting flakies.  I think that shattered glitter is a bit pasee.  The color is gorgeous, and the formula was fantastic.  Although I could not capture the color shift with the camera, it is definitely there in real life.

    1. This one was tricky to capture. I think it's gorgeous in real life, but the pics are just ok

  2. Next time you wear it, do it in a simple contrasting mani with a black cream. you will be most pleased with that shard glitter
