Femme Fatale Under The Waters Swatches & Review

Hello readers,
Today I have a polish from Femme Fatale's Cthulu collection to show you.  When this first came out I convinced myself that I didn't need it, but when I found out it was being discontinued that opinion quickly flipped and it made its way into my collection.

Under The Waters features a shimmery blue base with a very strong turquoise flash.  Though it does have a somewhat frosty finish I didn't have any issues with obvious brush strokes though due to the finish of this polish I would recommend a smoothing base coat if your nail beds are uneven..  I used three thins coats to reach opacity.  I did experience a little bit of bubbling but my top coat is getting low and a bit goopy so I'm pretty sure it was the culprit, not the polish.  Photos show three coats of Under The Waters with one coat of CND Supery Shiney top coat in daylight spectrum lighting.

Bonus! I also added a coat of Julep's Matte top coat and it worked really well with the shimmers in this polish.

This polish has been discontinued but at the time of this post it is still in stock at Color4Nails, Rainbow Connection, and Beauty So Fly.  In general you can find Femme Fatale Cosmetics on:

Happy polishing,
