Femme Fatale Burning Dusk has a red toned purple base and throws a lilac soft blue shimmer. In the sun the shimmer is framed with a linear holo that is dominantly red (oh my GOSH!):
outdoors in the shade - this actually looks blurple, no?
I applied three super thin coats of Femme Fatale Burning Dusk over my regular Base Coat. The first coat would start getting a tad patchy if I went over the same area more than once and of course it was sheer. The second coat provided already opacity but to intensify the shimmer and the base I went for a third very thin coat and it was so worth it. It needs to be mentioned that Burning Dusk dries super quick and there was no need to wait in-between applying the coats. I finished my mani with Glisten&Glow HK Girl Top Coat.
Final thoughts: You know what I am reminded of when ogling Femme Fatale Burning Dusk? The color concept is reminiscent of the famous RBL Scangie. I find this a very intriguing and unique shade of polish that is totally unique in my collection (I wonder how often I have said this about a polish…. oh well, just mindless rambling here). And I particularly like that the spectacular colors of Burning Dusk are a bit understated and still totally center stage - I hope you know what I try to say here…
I ordered Femme Fatale Burning Dusk with Harlow & Co. They are also available with MeiMei Signatures.
I look forward to reading your comments - thanks for visiting!!!
