I received the Be Your Own Heroine collection last week and after swatching each one, I immediately fell in love. The formulas on each of these shades is perfection. Being a new indie and releasing a fairly large first collection like this and having all perfect formulas is very rare. I present to you – Fair Maiden Polish!
Evil Stepsister – Deep burgundy with a golden green shimmer. I posted this on Instagram a little bit ago and flat out said I need to be buried in this shade. This is THE perfect Fall shade and exactly what I have been longing for in a polish! Photo below shows two coats.
Beauty Within – Dusty light grey purple creme with a violet shimmer. Stunning shade – Perfect formula. Photo below shows two coats.
Change Your Fate – Deep teal with a violet flash and golden green shimmer. This actually reminds me of the shade I created with Tini Beauty except a tad bit darker. LOOK at that violet sheen coming through! Photo below shows two coats.
Fairest Of Them All – Warm nude holographic polish. This is such a perfect office appropriate shade! I almost wish I had an office to wear it to … almost. Photo below shows two coats.
Frozen Heart – Bright & blue holographic polish. I’m watching Frozen as I type this – How eerie. haha! Perfect shade name and perfect Winter color! Photo below shows two coats.
Kiss The Girl – Orchid pink holographic polish. The holo in this shade is intense – The ladies at Fair Maiden 100% know what they are doing! Photo below shows two coats.
Let Your Hair Down – Deep purple holographic polish. I’m a sucker for a great purple shade! Photo below shows two coats.
Magic Carpet Ride – Sea foam green with golden shimmer. These kinds of colors are my favorite to wear! This one was a little thicker than the other shades, but it wasn’t a huge deal. Photo below shows two coats.
Once Upon A Dream – Light violet pink cream with a hint of golden shimmer. What a beast it was trying to capture the beautiful shimmer in this polish! I love the combo of the two. Photo below shows two coats.
Fairy Godmother Top Coat – Holographic top coat. This will basically transform any polish you have to something sparkly & magical! I have it layered over Barielle Boho Chic.
Overall, I am blown away by this brand. They came onto the very large indie scene and are pretty much dominating. If you haven’t purchased anything from them yet, take my advice and grab a few shades.
