Sunny's Body Products Villains Box Review

Hello beautiful! Today I'd love to share the latest seasonal box of goodies from Sunny's Body Products with you! The products in this box are inspired by Disney Villains, kin to their Princess Box from this spring. There are twelve hand care/bath & body products included, each themed for a different villain, which I love! I also got the opportunity to try two new products they are bringing to their line, so stay tuned for that at the end of the post.

Sunny's All Over Body Balm is in the scent Off With Her Head (Queen of Hearts from Alice in Wonderland) - "a fresh, soft floral, highlighted with fresh greens very similar to happy heart perfume." A classic, feminine scent that is sure to be a hit with the girly girls! This balm is ideal for use on any type of dry skin, I keep one in my purse at all times.

Sunny's Intensive Cuticle Therapy oil is in the scent Magic Mirror On the Wall (Queen Grimhilde from Snow White) - "notes of crisp apple, pear, and melon and leads to a finish of decadent white chocolate and creamy vanilla." A warm, sweet, autumn appropriate scent that is arguably my favorite in the box! Intense is a great moniker for this product, I use this robust oil before bed and when my cuticles are in need of pampering. The dropper applicator gives the perfect amount of product!

Next is Sunny's Lip Saver in Prick Her Finger (Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty) - "yummy dragonfruit". I've never smelled or eaten a dragonfruit in real life, but if it is like this I bet it tastes amazing! Reminds me of a fruity cocktail flavor. The lip savers are fab, keeps my lips moisturized for hours.

The lighter of the two oils comes in a roller ball applicator, Sunny's Cuticle Oil in Poor Unfortunate Souls (Ursula from The Little Mermaid) - "pineapple, coconut, violet and jasmine and in reaching to her depths you will discover driftwood, sprinkled sugar and white musk." Totally sweet, yet floral, but with a touch of ocean, I am in love with this! This oil is seriously essential, excellent for everyday use.

Sunny's Miracle Balm comes in Fine, Fine, I’m Cool, I’m Fine (Hades from Hercules) - "juicy lime is spiked with wild mint and swirled with ocean lilies, musk, palm trees, and sea moss." I truly detest the scent of lilies, but the mint and salty lime in this almost makes up for it haha. I really enjoy the balm, I use it mostly on my cuticles.

Sunny's Lip Scrub is scented/flavored with Friends On The Other Side (Dr. Facilier from The Princess and the Frog) - "a spooky mix of Cajun Spices." This is INSANE! Mostly cinnamon at first sniff, but a soft heat of the other spices come alive upon application. I may be obsessed with the scent, and I honestly use a lip scrub daily so I'm going to have to find a way to get Sunny to make me more of this!

Sunny's Dry Spot Healer comes in the scent If She Doesn’t Scare You (Cruella de Vil from 101 Dalmations) - "lily, rose, amber, oakmoss and sandalwood." I'm a bit over florals since we're heading into fall, but this is nice and light. The dry spot healer has literally cured my elbows of rough skin, I use it every night before bed!

Sunny's Triple Thick Body Cream is in the scent Wash The Windows, Scrub The Floors (Lady Tremaine from Cinderella) - "blend of narcotic florals, balanced with addictive woods and vanilla absolute create a scent that is timeless yet modern, simultaneously dark and light." That definition is so right on, dark and light at the same time. This lotion formula is heavier, it delivers a nice dose of hydration that lingers for a while.

Sunny's On the Go Hand Lotion comes in the scent Tick Tock (Captain Hook from Peter Pan) - "resinous bay leaves infused in the mellow woody smell of rum that has been aged and matured for months in wooden kegs." If you can imagine what a clean pirate smells like, this has got to be it! On the masculine end, but a definite winner for me. The formula of this lotion sinks in easily and is perfect for use on the go (hence the name haha).

The scent for Sunny's Sugar Hand Scrub is called Mother Knows Best (Mother Gothel from Tangled) - "a blend of buttery vanilla and sweet green grasses." One of my favorites in the box, who knew those scents went together so well?? Rich and slightly foodie but also fresh and light. I love the scrub, full of great oils and just scrubby enough to treat your hands to nice exfoliation without being too rough.

Sunny's Bath Whip comes in I Killed Mufasa! (Scar from The Lion King) -"Top – Ginger and Juniper Berries, Middle – Spruce, Cardamom and Osmanthus, Base – Vetiver, Tonka and Amber." This is a more complex scent that I was prepared not to like but I actually quite enjoy it. It's light and slightly masculine, very clean. The bath whip is lovely to use, gives a nice lather and leaves your skin scented for a long time.

Sunny's Hand Butter is scented with Patience Iago, Patience (Jafar from Aladdin) - "a woody, amber-moss and spice with a hint of sandalwood." Another unisex/masculine scent, this one is just ok for me, not being a big fan of amber or sandalwood. This is the most dense lotion Sunny has, almost firm and paste like, but slippery if that makes sense. I love using the butters on my feet and hands before bed, letting them sink in all night feels so luxe!

Now for the new products, these are not included in the box, but I wanted to share my take on them as they're going to be available in her shop soon. I got to try the new Jelly Soap in the permanent scent Pomelo Sage (Sunny's fav scent!). It's a squishy jello-like soap that works very similarly to regular soap, you can either use it as one chunk and just rub it on your skin or tear bits off and squish them up in your hands with running water. I like that it doesn't leave my skin super dry either, which happens with most soaps for me.

The other new type of product is the Fizzy Shots, which I got to try in the permanent scent Snow Taffy (which smells amazing). It's like a deconstructed half size bath bomb, in it's almost powdered form. This is the perfect size for mani bombs, which are all the rage right now, but I don't soak my hands/fingers in water because it affects my fingernails negatively, but I can see using this for pedicures or baths!

My friends Very Emily and Paulina's Passions have posted their reviews of this box as well and I know we all have very different noses, so you might check them out to get other perspectives. (They also have photos of the jelly soap and fizzy shot, which I realized I didn't take just now as I'm writing/editing this post, ugh!) Edit: Jen the Polishaholic just posted her review too!

This box will be available for purchase on the Sunny's Body Products website on Friday, September 30th for $50 including shipping for the US, and for $60 including shipping for international customers. This is a limited edition set so when it sells out it will not be restocked. Let me know what you think about this box and if you are interested in any of the scents!

SuperChic Lacquer Urban Dictionary Collection Swatches & Review

Hi friends! Today I have a new collection from indie brand SuperChic Lacquer, the Urban Dictionary collection of eight superholo shades. They are described as "fierce color depth shades with intense linear holographic effects." I used a good base coat on all of these to prevent staining, I prefer the SuperChic Bring It On! stain blocking/color bonding base coat.

Rum-Billie is a warm spiced rum linear holographic. Awesomely robust, opaque in one coat and easy to apply. This is a unique shade to my collection, I can't get over it's hotness!
SuperChic Lacquer Rum-Billie

Trap Queen is a vibrant raspberry holographic. This gal is also a one coater, yay! Did you immediately start singing that song? Because I did :)
SuperChic Lacquer Trap Queen

Zombie Crush is a dark blackened blood purple holographic. Great formula, super pigmented. I got a little of this in my cuticle and it ended up staining my skin, so take care! One coater here.
SuperChic Lacquer Zombie Crush

Wonderwall is an intense pale champagne gold holographic. There is a teal tinge to this that is quite subtle, but it's definitely there. This is the only shade in the collection where two coats were necessary for full coverage.
SuperChic Lacquer Wonderwall

Awkward Turtle is a gorgeous muted olive green holographic. I was hoping for a green in the SuperChic intense holo formula, so I was really excited to see this! Another fabulous one coater.
SuperChic Lacquer Awkward Turtle

Rosebuddy is a pale pink intense holographic. This is almost a rose gold but is more pink than the almost coppery shade I think of for a rose gold. Due to it's lighter color I really thought I would need two coats, but one really did cover my nail completely!
SuperChic Lacquer Rosebuddy

Deadpool is a dark ocean-at-night blue holographic. Who doesn't love a dark blue for fall? One coat wonder.
SuperChic Lacquer Deadpool

Awesome Sauce is an intense rich dark chocolate holographic. I'm loving all the brown shades that are coming out this year and this is no exception. This is a one coat shade as well.
SuperChic Lacquer Awesome Sauce

This collection, along with SuperChic's other intense holos, the Dreamology collection, will be available for pre-order today September 26th at 4pm PST (USA) on the SuperChic Lacquer website. All polishes are $12 each. Let me know what you think of all of these holo babes!

Glam Polish Halloween 2016 Trio Swatches & Review

I am back with my second same-brand-two-days-in-a-row post this month, haha. More Glam Polish! I have their stunning Halloween trio for this year to show you today. Do you remember last year's trio? Needless to say, I was super excited to see what they would come out with this year. Let's take a peek shall we?

Frankenslime 2016 is a neon green jelly filled with ultra holo glitter, multiple sizes of neon green, metallic purple glitter and a hint of holo. This is ultra neon, super eye searing! This is a little chunky due to how much glitter is in it, but with a great Glam Polish formula! Great coverage at two coats.
Glam Polish Frankenslime 2016

Be Careful What You Witch For… has a purple tinted holographic base packed with multiple sizes of silver holo, blue, sapphire, purple, lavender, magenta and pink glitter. Fabulous glitter payoff and lovely to apply. Two coats!
Glam Polish Be Careful What You Witch For…

Ghouls Just Wanna Have Fun is a light chartreuse holographic jelly with ultra holo glitter, multiple sizes of silver and blue holo glitter and plenty of glass flecks. A tiny bit thicker but not difficult to handle. This is also two coats.
Glam Polish Ghouls Just Wanna Have Fun

This trio is releasing the same time as the Horror Shop shades I showed you yesterday, this Friday, September 30 at 1pm EST (USA) on the Glam Polish website. Individually they are $11.50 each and as a set they are $32. What do you think of these glittery lacquers?

Glam Polish Halloween Horror Shop Collection [Partial] Swatches & Review

Hello and happy weekend! Today I get the privilege of sharing a few shades that will be released in the upcoming Glam Polish 2016 Halloween Horror Shop event! There are a whopping 25 shades released for this event, all limited editions in small batches, each exclusive to the Glam Polish site, meaning they can and probably will sell out quickly. And they will not be restocked. I have four of the 25, only a few bloggers are reviewing shades from the collection, and they are all dope! We all know that Halloween is my favorite holiday (it's practically a season, really), and these horror movie/tv inspired shades are so right up my alley!

Fright Night is a dark grape purple scattered holographic filled with color shifting flakies and glass flecks. This is loaded to the brim with goodies but it wasn't difficult to apply which was nice, it spreads out on the nail evenly and covers nicely. Two coats here. Fright Night is an 80's teen horror that I haven't actually watched, can you believe it! I'll have to fix that soon.
Glam Polish Fright Night

You Are Who You Eat is an intense linear holographic in a berry pinky crimson shade. This applied like magic, it's a one coater but the color deepens slightly with two. This is named for the 1999 black comedy horror film Ravenous, another I haven't seen.
Glam Polish You Are Who You Eat

Tales From the CRYPT is a shifting blue-purple with holographic flakies. Another easy one, two coats for opacity. The CRYPT series was on tv when I was still a child so I never got the chance to watch them, but that skeleton guy still creeps me out whenever I think about him haha.
Glam Polish Tales From the CRYPT

Frights! Camera! Action! is a teal scattered holographic with strong crimson shimmer and holo flakies. This one made me gasp when I first saw it in the bottle, a seriously stunning shade. The pinky red flash is easier to see in person, my photo can't do it justice. As far as I can tell, this name is referencing the cartoon Monster High, but I'm not sure haha.
Glam Polish Frights! Camera! Action!

The Halloween Horror Shop shades will be available on on Friday, September 30th at 1pm EDT (USA) on the Glam Polish website for $12 each. The other 21 shades are listed in their shop now if you want to see all that will be available, there's honestly too many to write out here haha. Let me know what you think of these shades, and if you're planning on picking up any from the limited editions! It cracks me up that being such a fan of the horror genre, the four shades I got are named after movies/shows that I haven't seen! Are you a scary movie junkie??

Different Dimension Wanderlust and Polish Con Collections Swatches & Review

I told y'all I had more Different Dimension comin 'atcha! Like I said last week, it's been insanely busy for me at work lately, but things are calming down thank goodness. Today I wanted to show you the new Wanderlust collection, a six piece fall collection that will be available for sale tonight! Along with those, I also have three polishes that debuted at the inaugural Polish Con event last Saturday, two of which will be available tonight during their big release. Onward!

First the Wanderlust collection, inspired by brand maker Missi's desire to travel. All of the names are excellently uncommon words so she's graciously included the definitions for us! The formulas are all excellent, smooth and easy and all opaque in two coats.

Resfeber – the restless race of the traveler's heart before the journey begins – a lush scarlet holographic with contrasting added shimmers. Warm and hearty!
Different Dimension Resfeber

Peregrination – a course of travel; journey – a goldenrod yellow holographic with added contrasting shimmers. I swear I detect a pink flash in this as well, super cool.
Different Dimension Peregrination

Fernweh – literally "farsickness" or "longing for far-off places" – an army green linear holographic with added contrasting shimmers. I am pretty sure I'm obsessed with this.
Different Dimension Fernweh

Nefelibata – a cloud walker; one who lives in the cloud of their own imagination or dreams – a sky blue linear holographic with added contrasting shimmers. This looks slightly speckled, kinda like easter candy eggs!
Different Dimension Nefelibata

Numinous – appealing to the higher emotions or to the aesthetic sense – a bright purple linear holographic with added contrasting shimmers. I'm not usually a purple type of gal, but this red-toned shade wins me over.
Different Dimension Numinous

Novaturient – desiring change in one's life – warm, dark caramel brown holographic. The particles in this are a little tinier than the others, but there is some nice rainbow-ness regardless.
Different Dimension Novaturient

Now we have the polishes that Different Dimension debuted at Polish Con on 9/17, inspired by sites in Chicago, which is where the convention was held. Maybe I'll get to attend the event next year, it sounded like a blast!

Bean There, Done That is a silver holographic with silver holo microflakies with colorshifting shimmers. This is inspired by Cloudgate in Millennium Park. It went on easily and smoothly. Also surprisingly opaque, I only needed two coats.
Different Dimension Bean There, Done That

Lincoln Park, Before Dark is a dark eggplant linear holographic with color shifting glitters and microflakies. This is named for the Chicago neighborhood, a few blocks away from where Polish Con was held. Amazing formula, effortless really. Two coats as well.
Different Dimension Lincoln Park, Before Dark

Whatchu Talkin' 'Bout Willis is a garnet linear holographic with color shifting glitz and copper glitters. This was a Polish Con exclusive that we were told was going to be unavailable outside the event. So you may be asking yourself, why would Kellie show us this gorgeous polish, just to tease us?? The answer is because I love it and I couldn't not show you. But also, because I just heard that Color4Nails will be stocking this shade soon! It will most likely be super limited edition though, so be sure and sign up for their newsletter to find out when it will be available.
Different Dimension Whatchu Talkin' 'Bout Willis

All of these shades, with the exception of Whatchu Talkin' 'Bout Willis, and including their Halloween Poe. collection that I showed you yesterday, will be available tonight at 9pm EST on the Different Dimension website. They are priced at $12. Let me know what you think of these polishes! Are you down for holos for the fall? Later kiddos!

Different Dimension Halloween 2016 Poe. Collection Swatch & Review

Hey there folks! I have an awesome quartet of polishes from indie brand Different Dimension to show you today. It's the Poe. collection, inspired by the gothic literary stylings of Edgar Allan Poe, someone who I've been a fan of since I was a wee lass.

Once Upon a Midnight Dreary is a black jelly polish with hex glitters in orange, blue, purple, and green. I love the formula of these type of polishes from Different Dimension, they all apply easily, not too thin or thick. This is three coats. Perfect shade for the Halloween season!
Different Dimension Once Upon a Midnight Dreary

...Dream Within a Dream is a full coverage Halloween glitterbomb! Holographic silver microglitter with added tones of orange and black glitter in various shades and sizes. This is loaded UP with glitter, a little chunky but surprisingly easy to handle. I used three coats here to make it opaque, but you could also layer this one over a silver, orange, or black for an equally cool look. May require extra layer of top coat for a smooth finish.
Different Dimension ...Dream Within a Dream

Nevermore is a charcoal black linear holographic with added orange shimmers and orange microglitter bits. This was incredible, easy to apply and super opaque. The microglitter pieces can poke through a bit so I used two layers of top coat on this one. I've worn this twice since I got it!
Different Dimension Nevermore

And All I Loved, I Loved Alone is an orange jelly with holographic flakes. Love this type of formula, even, opaque and sparkly finish in a jelly! Such a great pumpkin-y shade for the season!
Different Dimension And All I Loved, I Loved Alone

New cuticle oil scents coming soon too! They will come in both pen (2.7 mL) and dropper (15mL) sizes, as well as new sample sizes, which are great for testing scent/fragrance sensitivities. This is the first time I've tried Different Dimension's cuticle oil and I am really pleased with them! I'm totally diggin the long lasting moisturizing qualities and scents.
Image via Different Dimension website

New cuticle oil scents are: Explore - Fresh pumpkin blended with orange peel, sweet carrot, ground cinnamon, clove bud, nutmeg and vanilla cream; Discover - A fresh and feminine fruity blend of mango and strawberries with grapefruit, freesia and amber and tonka bean; Journey - Notes of pink amber and vanilla wrap around blushed orchid and jasmine petals; and Drift - Ripe black raspberries are mixed with dark plum and warm vanilla.

The polishes and oils will be available on Friday 9/23 at 9pm EST on the Different Dimension website. Polishes will be priced at $12 each, except for Once Upon a Midnight Dreary which is specially priced at $5. There will be special discount pricing on the full collection for the first 24 hours of release, so mark your calendar! Let me know what you think of these new shades! I've got more Different Dimension for you very soon so keep your eyes peeled for them!

Guest Post by Paulina's Passions: Dream Big Nail Art

Hi everyone! Please enjoy this amazing guest post by my friend Paulina from Paulina's Passions!


Hello the beautiful readers of Kellie's blog! My name is Paulina and I am from the Paulina's Passions blog.  I cannot even describe how excited I am to be here for this guest post. I have been following Kellie's blog for ages and I have always found tons of inspiration here. I especially love her blog posts with indie polish swatches and all the beautiful holo pictures! Kellie is my Swatch Queen and I always come to her blog for new releases and collections.

I made a super simple, summery nail art for this guest post. I have recently tried my first polishes from KBShimmer and I have totally fallen in love with them. I paired two beautiful polishes from the Summer 2016 collection to make this nail art. KBShimmer One Night Sand and Playing With The Boys look absolutely gorgeous together and I knew I would be using them for nail art!

Using a regular striping tape I made mint and glittery stripes on my ring finger. I am really loving these simple stripes and how the colors look over a white base. I popped a cute water decal with a message on my middle finger. This is just a little reminder to us all that we should always try to fulfill our dreams and not to be afraid to reach for them and just DREAM BIG! The decals come from Shop Keeki. (

What do you guys think of these simple bright nails? I am quite pleased with the end effect of this nail art and I got so many compliments while wearing them. Sometimes I like making simple things on my nails, just some simple stripes or cute decals always look adorable. If you enjoy nail art, I'd be super happy if check out my blog at Paulina's Passions.

Thank you so much Kellie for having me on your lovely blog. I am really happy that I could contribute to your beautiful website and share my passion for nails with your readers.



Thank you so much Paulina, I appreciate you putting together such a beautiful manicure for my readers, it is so gorgeous! Just like all your amazing work always is. Be sure to check out her on social media, and she also makes awesome YouTube videos!

Powder Perfect Anniversary Duo + Egyptology Series Part III [Partial] Swatches & Review

Hey folks! I was planning on posting this yesterday but my internet went out this weekend. It was basically tragic. But it came back Sunday afternoon so I was able to make it happen, haha. These polishes are from Australian based indie Powder Perfect, their third anniversary duo and half of the new Egyptology series part III. Let's jump in to the goodness!

Elysium is the first shade in the anniversary duo, a silver holographic with a mix of sparkling microglitters and fuchsia to green shifting ultra chrome flakies. I don't know what kind of holo pigments they are using down there in Australia...but I'm in love! It seems kinda subtle at first glance, then hits you in the face with rainbow fire. I can't even describe it really. This is almost a one coater, which is impressive for a silver. I used two layers here.
Powder Perfect Elysium

Utopia is a vibrant pink holographic with sparkling holo microglitters and ultra chrome flakies. Same formula as Elysium, two coats here as well. These make a great pair, a super duo to celebrate Powder Perfect's third year!
Powder Perfect Utopia

There are 10 shades in the Egyptology Series Part III and I have six of them to show you today. They all had pretty similar formulas, a finish they are calling a "holo-twist", a fine microglitter polish crossed with a holographic for a smoother, sparkly finish. Goes on like a dream, not thick or difficult to apply. A little less opaque, so I built them up in three coats for 100% coverage. They dry slightly gritty, so you'll want a thick top coat.

Ra is inspired by the ancient Egyptian sun god and is a silver based holo-twist lacquer with a golden hue.
Powder Perfect Ra

Mother Goddess is named after the goddess Isis, whose parents where the sky and the earth. This blue polish was inspired by tears Isis cried for her murdered husband, Osiris.
Powder Perfect Mother Goddess

Hathor is designed to represent the feminine goddess who represented joy, love, and motherhood. A juicy hot pink with small sparkling microglitters and coral flakies within a holographic base.
Powder Perfect Hathor

Osiris was the god of the afterlife, usually shown as being mummified, with green skin, hence the emerald green of this holo-twist polish, filled with microglitters in various shades.
Powder Perfect Osiris

Horus was often depicted as a falcon, or with the head of a falcon placed on a man’s body. This is a dark maroon with sparkling red glitters and holographic particles. This is one you might be able to get away with two coats on, it's a little more opaque.
Powder Perfect Horus

Divine Pharaoh is a glittering silver holo microglitter with a subtle green reflect and metallic copper and gold glitters, that represent pharaohs and their treasures.
Powder Perfect Divine Pharaoh

The remaining shades in the collection are Heka, a purple, Scarab, a teal blue, Weighing the Heart, a pink, and Saqqara, a sunset orange. These polishes are all available now, either on the Powder Perfect Australian site or their US site. They are all $13 each. Let me know what you think about these! I'm kind of head over heels for them!

Fair Maiden Polish Fall Into Delirium Collection Swatches & Review

Hi everyone! This week has been super crazy at work, like major busy, so I am decidedly exhausted. Hopefully it will ease up a little soon haha. I have some beautiful new polishes from Fair Maiden Polish though to lift my spirit! It comes in two parts, a fall collection called Fall Into Delirium. I have parts 1 & 2 for you today, 10 polishes in total

Part 1 is the "warm" half of the collection. It begins with Acorns & Ashes, a thermal change polish that is soft nude in warm temperatures and transitions to taupe in cooler temperatures, then goes to ashy charcoal when in its coldest state. Filled with golden green shimmer which shows more golden tones when nude, and greener tones when in the darker, cold state. A bit sheer at first, but nice formula, very manageable. This is three coats in it's warm state.
Fair Maiden Polish Acorns & Ashes

This is a cold sensitive thermal, different than most thermals which are heat sensitive. Best results are seen at 18 degrees C/64 degrees F. I am a naturally warm-bodied person and I live in the high desert in Nevada, which is still experiencing nice temperatures in the 80 degree range during the day. I could only partially achieve color transition for this photo by putting my fingertips in a bowl of ice water, and even then they seemed to revert back to gold a few seconds after I took them out! If you are a "cooler" person than I, you'll probably have no trouble though haha.
Fair Maiden Polish Acorns & Ashes

Shadow of Your Heart is a dark, vampy blood red holographic. This is super pigmented, maybe even a one coater if you're generous with your layers. I used two here. Makes me think of a glistening garnet.
Fair Maiden Polish Shadow of Your Heart

Roaming Fire is a fiery reddish orange holographic with a golden flame. This applied effortlessly in two coats. This seriously glows!
Fair Maiden Polish Roaming Fire

The Road Less Traveled is an earthy, dark mossy brownish grey-green holographic with color shifting violet shimmer. This is a soft roar, a sleeper hit. I wasn't expecting to be as knocked out by this as I am, it's so gorgeous! Great formula, two coats.
Fair Maiden Polish The Road Less Traveled

Wanderlusting is a golden bronze metallic flakie polish, loaded with 5 different holographic pigments, glass flecks, and a subtle golden green shift. The flakes lay flatter than glitter so there's minimal texture. Super easy to apply, easy to spread over the nail. This is two coats, awesome coverage on this one!
Fair Maiden Polish Wanderlusting

And here is part 2, the "cool" shades. Autumn’s Reign is a rich, slightly metallic purple that shifts slightly to reddish gold, with a violet-green shimmer and color shifting chroma flakes that flash red-orange-gold. Slightly thick, opaque in two coats.
Fair Maiden Polish Autumn's Reign

Cosmic Muse is a rich teal with an intense glow of pink-gold shimmer and color shifting chroma flakes that shift in purple-red-gold. This is a bit sheer at first, but builds up in three coats to the color you see here. Slight brushstrokes, but the intense shimmer is so flashy you almost don't see them in real life.
Fair Maiden Polish Cosmic Muse

Walking in Silence is a bright periwinkle blue holographic with a subtle red flash and color shifting shimmer. This was a little thick and didn't flow on my nails as easily as the other holos, but not bad. Two coats here, but you may need a third if you do thin layers.
Fair Maiden Polish Walking in Silence

Bright Eyed Mourning is a dark, moody midnight blue holographic with a tealy green glow. This by comparison with the previous polish, was decidedly thinner, maybe a teeny bit runny. This is two coats though, it has good pigmentation.
Fair Maiden Polish Bright Eyed Mourning

Time Stands Still is a sparkly cement grey holographic with a violet flash and shimmer flakes that shift blue-violet-red. This applies nicely, but is a little sheer. I used three coats but it was super close to being opaque in two. I really liked how this looked in person, my photo doesn't do the shifty-sparkle quality justice.
Fair Maiden Polish Time Stands Still

The pre-order for these polishes starts 9/17 at 11am CST on the Fair Maiden Polish website. The pre-order period will last one week, with the polishes shipping out 2-3 weeks after that. They will be available for regular purchase later on on the website too. Individually all the polishes are $10, except for Ashes & Acorns which is $9. Each half of five is priced at $45 as a group. Purchase all 10 for $85. Minis will be sold in both sets of 5 for $25 per set, but minis will not be sold individually. What do you think of these fall beauties? I'm obsessed with Wanderlusting and The Road Less Traveled!
