Fair Maiden Garden Party Collection Swatch and Review

Press sample
Happy weekend! It's gorgeous warm and sunny weather by me, how about you? I'm slowly getting over the jet lag..ok..I would have been over it in a day, it is only 3 hrs, but my kids? Ugh. Wreaking havoc on their little bods, and therefore mine. So, I'm slowly catching up on swatches and have these beautiful Fair Maiden shades which is a newish brand that I'd never tried before. I have the complete set of 9 shades in the Garden Party collection to show you! 

Fair-Maiden-Gilded-Garden
 Fair Maiden Gilded Garden - a strikingly metallic polish with rose gold flecks and a linear holo finish. The only LE of this collection. Comes with the signature rose gold arrow ring (which I have shown with the next polish.) *Edit this polish has been replaced with a very similar one for the restock.


Fair-Maiden-Gilded-Garden
 This shade is an absolute stunner! I'm sure I will be reapplying this one soon! Fantastic formula opaque in 2 coats. Shown with top coat.
Fair-Maiden-Stargazer
 Fair Maiden Stargazer - inspired by the Stargazer Lily, a classic medium pink-red off set with green flash and soft linear holo.
Fair-Maiden-Stargazer
 My personal favorite of the bunch simply because this color speaks to me. Love love! Opaque in 2 coats. Excellent formula. I didn't really see much green flash on my nails. This is the one I chose to keep wearing :D
Fair-Maiden-Stargazer
 A delicate holo, comes out beautifully in the sunlight! 
Fair-Maiden-Sweet-Honeysuckle
 Fair Maiden Sweet Honeysuckle - a soft fleshy creme with golden flash and violet red sparkle.
Fair-Maiden-Sweet-Honeysuckle
A beautiful shade with gorgeous shimmer! I couldn't get it to photograph quite right, it's a bit lighter and brighter in real life. Good formula, opaque in 3 coats.
Fair-Maiden-Evening-Primrose
 Fair Maiden Evening Primrose - a pastel yellow creme offset with a deep blue flash.
Fair-Maiden-Evening-Primrose
This was the only shade in the collection that I some application troubles with. Even with three coats (and I tried two separate times, thinking the first time it was a fluke) I didn't get consistent opaque coverage. The shade itself is very pretty, a bit brighter and more lemon yellow than my photos show. 
Fair-Maiden-Green-Goddess
 Fair Maiden Green Goddess - inspired by the Green Goddess Calla Lilly it is a light green polish rich in holo and kissed with a golden flash.
Fair-Maiden-Green-Goddess
 No complaints here, and that's saying a lot cause well, you know..it's green :P This has a stunning holo and very wearable green shade.
Fair-Maiden-Mint-Succulent
 Fair Maiden Mint Succulent - a soft seafoam green-blue polish with a strong violet orange flash and linear holo.
Fair-Maiden-Mint-Succulent
Whoah. This baby is super duper pretty, looks more complex on the nail than in photos and a strong holo in the sun. I cannot wait to get this one on again. I used 3 coats. 
Fair-Maiden-Blue-Moon-Wisteria
 Fair Maiden Blue Moon Wisteria - a medium deep blurple creme offset with a strong violet purple flash.
Fair-Maiden-Blue-Moon-Wisteria
 This one was much harder to capture in photos. I did some color correcting in the editing phase and it's just about right. Those blurple shades are a fine line between looking blue vs looking purple at any moment! Excellent formula, opaque in 2 coats.
Fair-Maiden-Neptune-Rose
 Fair Maiden Neptune Rose - a bright orchid creme with turquoise flash and violet sparkle.
Fair-Maiden-Neptune-Rose
 Beautiful shade (I feel like I sound like a broken record! But this collection is full of beautiful shades!) I used 3 coats here.
Fair-Maiden-Maiden's-Blush
 Fair Maiden Maiden's Blush - inspired by the Maiden's Blush Lilac, a light purple with intense linear holo and hints of violet red sparkle.
Fair-Maiden-Maiden's-Blush
Another beauty for sure! The holo in this shines even in low light! So pretty!! 

Can you even pick a fave? These have just been restocked and are available now, retails for $9-$11 at fairmaidenpolish.com


All the best, 
Victoria
