Where to Buy Indies: Femme Fatale and Giveaway


Who amongst us hasn't felt the pain of trying to get their hands on that elusive wishlist indie from the US? Setting your alarm clock for 3 am, hitting refresh repeatedly as you squint at the screen with tired, blurry eyes, then getting stung by excessive postage costs and long delivery times? And let's not even mention the cartjackers.

Well, suffer no more Aussies! Sophie of Femme Fatale Cosmetics has taken it upon herself to become Australia's first dedicated indie distributor. Now, not only can we get indies at reasonable hours, we can also take advantage of domestic shipping costs and local delivery times - how's that for handy?

The brands currently stocked are:

- Contrary Polish
- CrowsToes
- Emily de Molly
- Girly Bits
- Gloss 'n Sparkle
- Femme Fatale Cosmetics (Sophie's own line).

There are other big name international indie and boutique lines which will be stocked in the future, including Rainbow Honey, Cirque, HARE, Smitten, Enchanted and Lush Lacquer.

All brands are competitively priced (hurray!). However, restocks for international lines are likely to occur only every 3-4 months, so if you see something you like, be sure to grab it! Restocks for Australian brands will be occurring more frequently, and having a single distributor means you can nab all your lemmings in one go.

Many of us who have bought from Sophie's store in the past know her commitment to customer service - we Aussies are fortunate to be in such good hands! Luckily for overseas polish-lovers, Sophie is also looking into setting up international distribution.


To celebrate the launch of the first Aussie indie distributor, Sophie has generously donated an awesome prize pack containing:

- Girly Bits Eggnogoholic (retail value $12.00)
- Gloss ‘n Sparkle Slowly Growing Deaf (retail value $10.00)
- Femme Fatale Displaced Dreams (retail value $9.75) - this hasn't even been released yet!


This giveaway is open to Australian residents only.

  12. If one doesn't use Google Friend Connect, there's no way to access the other entries on this competition. That's pretty unfortunate.

  17. I have wishlists on heaps of sites and lots of indie polishes that I want to get my hands on! (I've only got A England and Pretty Serious polishes so far). There are a few Femme Fatale polishes I've been lusting over as well.
