NOTD: Femme Fatale Cosmetics "A Tisket A Tasket"

Femme Fatale Cosmetics is an absolute Utopia for any serious nail polish addict, especially here in Australia. They stock an amazing range of indie polishes from around the world, but they also have their own cosmetics and polishes. I haven't tried the cosmetics, but I picked up two of their polishes to try, and this is the first!

A Tisket A Tasket is a perfect Spring polish. I'm all mental about pastels and glitters at the moment, which is unsettling for me because normally I'm pretty goth in my polish choices! I thought maybe it was a hormonal thing but now I think it's just because I'm happy that Spring has sprung :)

Anyway back to A Tisket A Tasket! It's a  creamy almost-white base with just a hint of mint, speckled with different sizes of sequin glitter in hot pink, pale apple green, lime green, emerald green, and fine white-silver glitter. 

The effect is fresh, creamy, delicate and girly. It reminds me of 19th century picnics where ladies wore ankle-length white lace and and carried parasols, while men in straw boater hats and blazers rowed them around the lake wooing them with poetry (did I mention I'm under the influence of a great deal of codeine as I write this?)...but seriously, this:

sophisticated...wish that guy would shut up with the trumpet playing though, he's scaring the birds away.

Hallucinations aside, this polish was smooth and creamy to apply, with two thin coats drying quickly to a satin finish. I also didn't have to fiddle to place the glitter, it's well distributed and the proportions of different colours are perfect. This is a beautiful, high quality polish and I plan to purchase more Femme Fatale products in the near future, they have heaps to choose from! Oh and within 3 hours of applying it, I was complimented by SIX strangers, from the medical receptionist to the pharmacist and even the bank teller!

Here's another photo in natural light, with my kittens' milk bottle - which leads me nicely into introducing my new foster kittens, hehe! 

They are two weeks old and need bottle feeding every 4 hours, they're stinky and messy and pretty much all claws, and I love them with all my heart :) They are a boy and a girl - the girl has a pink nose! 


  1. Awwww!!!! The kitten is so cute! I love the nail look, femme fatale is one of my favourite songs haha ^_^

    1. Velvet Underground or Britney Spears? I like both, lol! The kitties are adorable, they are keeping me very busy :)
