Femme Fatale Lucent Ametrine

Happy long weekend Saturday, everyone!

I'm pretty excited to share this polish with you guys today - Femme Fatale's Lucent Ametrine.  I am a HUGE fan of Femme Fatale's nail polishes.  Their polishes are always have such lovely and unexpected combinations of colors and glitters that really make them interesting.  Lucent Ametrine is no exception.

Lucent Ametrine features an assortment of small and large lilac and dark purple hex and square glitter (some of these are holographic glitters, too) as well as light yellow and magenta hex glitters and teeny tiny magenta and dark blue hex glitters in a clear base.  This polish is very complex.

I decided to layer Lucent Ametrine over one of OPI's more recent releases from the 2013 Euro Centrale spring collection - Vant to Bite My Neck, which is a lovely eggplant colored creme polish.  I really enjoyed this combo.  Lucent Ametrine went on quite smoothly for such a dense glitter and packed a big punch in just one coat.  It is definitely not a sparse glitter, that's for sure!  Vant to Bite My Neck also had a nice formula and was opaque for me in two coats.  Folks with more careful application than me could probably get away with one coat of Vant to Bite My Neck.

On to the pics!
