Fair Maiden Polish Winter 2015 Winter At Dusk Collection Swatches & Review

Hi there and happy Thanksgiving week! It's gonna be a short work week for me, which undoubtedly makes me a little giddy so I'm in good spirits. That in part also comes from this collection, my first from indie brand Fair Maiden Polish. The Winter At Dusk collection has six soft shades inspired by the tranquility of a winter sunset. Let's take a look!

Fire Frost is a pale champagne nude with a scattered holographic shimmer, red-orange color shifting micro flakes, and a subtle orange to violet flash. This had an nice, easy formula and was opaque in two coats.

Snow Jewel is a metallic purple with a red-violet shimmer and pale gold micro flakes. This one took a little more care to apply, it can kind of bunch up on itself like some metallics tend to do, so give yourself extra dry time between layers. Opaque in two coats. This reminds me of Rescue Beauty Lounge Lucciole from the Fan 2.0 collection, but this is a warmer purple compared to that one.

Ice Petals is a light blush pink with green sparkle, iridescent micro flakes that shift from blue to violet to red, and metallic silver flakes. I found this a bit on the thicker side, but not terribly so. Two coats.

Winter Moon is a medium blue grey crelly with a blue flash, super itty bitty holo twinkles, and blue-green sparkles. This was more sheer than the other shades, it took three coats for full opacity.

Afterglow is a light lavender holographic shade with pink shifting micro flakes. This had a great formula, maybe the best in the collection. Very easy to apply, two coats for total coverage.

Starry Night is a midnight navy blue holographic with golden metallic flakes. This one was also great to apply, no trouble and opaque in two coats. This might be one of my favorite polish shades I've ever tried, no joke! The metallic flakes really pop in lower lighting. You have to see it in person!

I recommend a glossy top coat with all of these shades. They don't dry dull necessarily, but they aren't super shiny. This collection will be available on Thursday, Nov. 26 at 9pm CST on the Fair Maiden website. The collection will be sold for $10 each for full size bottles, $6.50 each in mini bottles.They are having a few holiday promotions as well starting that day, including 25% off all purchases and a free Limited Edition Holiday 2015 lacquer with the purchase of the full Winter at Dusk collection. Those promos go through Monday, Nov. 30th, no code necessary.

Tell me what you think about these soft winter shades! Which is your favorite? I think I would be lost without Starry Night now that I have seen its wonder!
