Femme Fatale is a mysterious and seductive woman whose charms ensnare her lovers in bonds of irresistible desire, often leading them into compromising, dangerous, and deadly situations.
The first image that crossed my mind was Medusa. She is seductive and dangerous.. I thought that's exactly what she is.

Week 8 Misa cosmetics

Femme Fatale is a mysterious and seductive woman whose charms ensnare her lovers in bonds of irresistible desire, often leading them into compromising, dangerous, and deadly situations.
The first image that crossed my mind was Medusa. She is seductive and dangerous.. I thought that's exactly what she is.
I searched Greek mythology and read Medusa and Athena's story.
Medusa was originally a ravishingly beautiful maiden, but when she was caught being raped by the "Lord of the Sea" Poseidon in Athena's temple, the enraged Athena transformed Medusa's beautiful hair to serpents and made her face so terrible to behold that the mere sight of it would turn onlookers to stone.
So I hand painted her face and snakes hair in the middle of the right hand and Medusa's victim on the other hand, Greek head mask, and owl.
In Greek mythology, a Little Owl traditionally represents or accompanies Athena.
Also I hand painted snake skin with red color base on the rest of the fingers. I decided to use red as base because it's the "femme fatale" color from Misa cosmetic's polish.
