Ulta Femme Fatale stamped with Essence Enchanted Fairy

Only in the nail polish world do the words Femme Fatale and Enchanged Fairy go in the same sentence or in this case manicure. All I can say is that on my nails the two were getting along nicely, despite my rushed stamping job. I ended up making a nice dent on my index while trying to stamp quickly before running off to work. Luckily it was not as noticeable in real life as it is in these photos.

For the manicure I started out with Ulta's Femme Fatale and stamped with Essence's Enchanted Fairy, a sweet lilac shimmer. I think it stands out quite nicely against the dark background. For the stamp I used Red Angel plate RA-102. I'm still experimenting with these stamps, but I think I'm getting the hang of them.




On it's own, Femme Fatale is a dark burgundy maroon color with a reddish coppery shimmer. It applied well with full coverage in two coats. No pulling or bald spots and wrapped around the tips nicely. It may not be the most original color, but I do love a good dark polish :)

  1. I have Enchanted Fairy too but never thought about using it for stamping. Not that I stamp that often, anyway.
    Thanks for sharing.

  11. @Monic Sutter, I did two coats of this one to get the full, even coverage. I don't think there is any special trick that I'm using. What does yours end up looking like?
