Spring Fling

I was recently lucky enough to have Femme Fatale Cosmetics provide me with a couple of polishes for review, one of which I'm going to show you today. For those of you who have been living under a rock, Femme Fatale Cosmetics (NOT to be confused with Femme Fatale Lacquer) are an Australian indie company who make not only nail polish, but other cosmetics including blush and eyeshadow. They are also the only stockist for international indie polishes in Australia. The polish I have for you today is one of Femme Fatale Cosmetics' own polishes, 'Spring Fling'.

'Spring Fling' was released as part of the Easter Trio for 2013, and is a medium opacity creme polish in a fresh minty green colour. It contains a whole array of glitters including white diamonds and hexes, metallic fuchsia dots and hexes, pastel green hexes, tiny lime green hexes, and blue iridescent glitters. In my swatches I've applied 3 coats, and had no issues with application. I recommend a thick top coat to smooth it out though, as it can be a tad bumpy without it.

'Spring Fling' has been likened to another Femme Fatale Cosmetics polish, 'Winter Hyacinth'. Some of you may remember that I reviewed 'Winter Hyacinth' back in November last year, but I'll pop a photo up here so that you can see the differences.

I'll admit that at first glance they do appear to be quite similar as those fuchsia dots and white diamonds are so striking. I promise you though that that's where the similarities end. In addition to the fuchsia dots and white diamonds, 'Winter Hyacinth' has rose glitters, holographic fuchsia hexes, large white hexes, and a teal base. 'Spring Fling' has pastel green hexes, white hexes (which are smaller than those in 'Winter Hyacinth') and tiny lime and iridescent blue glitters in a minty base. If you own 'Winter Hyacinth' and love it, I suggest you get 'Spring Fling' too, they're each beautiful in their own right.

Femme Fatale Cosmetics polishes can be purchased for $9.85 for a 12ml bottle through their website for those of you living in Australia. For those of you who live internationally, a full list of stockists can be found here.
