Femme Fatale - Apothecary

Apothecary was a color that I had to have as soon as I saw swatches. For some reason, I couldn't find this color at many stockists. Either they are out of stock, not stocking this color or they haven't got it in yet. NA people can keep their eyes on Harlow & Co and Color 4 Nails to see if this color pops up or just pay a ton of shipping to get it in from either Australia or Singapore like I did via FFC or Mei Mei's (it was worth it).

Apothecary is a really cool seafoam green with a strong linear holo, a heavy gold shimmer and gold flakes. This color has a very mermaid vibe to it and I love it. Indoors, the shimmer overpowers the holo which isn't really a bad thing because it sets it apart from other seafoam holos. The holo is definitely still there though and gets even more vibrant in the sun.

This color also looks REALLY good matte and adds to the mermaid vibe. Using a matte top coat may negate the holo-goodness but, gold shimmer looks soso good with a satiny finish. It also helps the gold flakes stand out.
