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 - 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.
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 - inspired by the Stargazer Lily, a classic medium pink-red off set with green flash and soft linear holo.
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
A delicate holo, comes out beautifully in the sunlight!
Fair Maiden Sweet Honeysuckle - a soft fleshy creme with golden flash and violet red sparkle.
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 - a pastel yellow creme offset with a deep blue flash.
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 - inspired by the Green Goddess Calla Lilly it is a light green polish rich in holo and kissed with a golden flash.
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 - a soft seafoam green-blue polish with a strong violet orange flash and linear holo.
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 - a medium deep blurple creme offset with a strong violet purple flash.
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 - a bright orchid creme with turquoise flash and violet sparkle.
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 - inspired by the Maiden's Blush Lilac, a light purple with intense linear holo and hints of violet red sparkle.
Another beauty for sure! The holo in this shines even in low light! So pretty!!
