Fair Maiden Polish Goddesses Trio: Part 2
*UPDATE* February 15, 2017
As of last night (2/14/17), these polishes are back in stock on the Fair Maiden website. I don't know how long they'll last, so grab them before they're gone!
Today I'm sharing swatches and a review of the recently released Fair Maiden Polish Goddesses Trio Part 2. I purchased these myself in my first ever order from Fair Maiden Polish, and I'm SO impressed! This trio has something for everyone. Unfortunately, the pre-order window is closed for this trio, BUT I did see a mention that there might be one restock. If that happens I'll update my post with the details, but I recommend keeping an eye on Facebook and Instagram just in case! They're both linked at the bottom of the post.
Let's get into the swatches!
All photos in this post are taken under artificial light, using Talon Super Swatch & Peel base coat by Nail Hoot, (a clear peel-able vinyl base), and topped with Glisten & Glow HK Girl topcoat. Matte swatches are topped with Nina Ultra Pro matte topcoat.
Fair Maiden Polish "Hemera"
- Polish Description: From the Fair Maiden website: "Hemera is a white crelly with violet gold shimmer and contains red to purple to copper shifting flakes."
- Coats: 3 coats. The last three photos show it topped with matte topcoat.
- Formula: I was really impressed with the formula and coverage, especially for a white crelly! Very easy to work with, and although it starts out sheer, it builds up nicely.
- My Notes: This shade is totally gorgeous! It's a subtle look as an overall mani, but the pink shimmer gives it an amazing iridescent glow. My nails looked like princess eggs, if those were a thing.
Fair Maiden Polish "Tyche"
- Polish Description: From the Fair Maiden website: "Tyche is a deep, vibrant plum holo with a flash of red."
- Coats: 2 easy coats
- Formula: GREAT formula! Only two coats were needed and little-to-no cleanup. It's very easy to control where the polish goes on the nail.
- My Notes: I didn't expect to love this shade as much as I do, but it might actually be my favorite of the 3! Hemera and Asteria stood out to me as more unique, but once I had Tyche in hand, I fell in love. The reddish shimmer gives it a beautiful deep glow. You can see the shimmer most prominently in the second photo, under indirect light.
Fair Maiden Polish "Asteria"
- Polish Description: From the Fair Maiden website: "Asteria is a multichrome base that shifts from green to blue to violet to red to gold. It also contains color shifting iridescent glitters and small silver holographic glitter."
- Coats: 3 coats
- Formula: The formula on this is good, especially for a multichrome loaded with glitter. The first coat was very sheer, but it builds up to full opacity in 3 easy coats.
- My Notes: *Please ignore the weird bump on my ring finger nail.* I think it's a little bit of peel off base coat that got caught under my first coat of polish. Anyway, this one is BEAUTIFUL. I mean, they all are, obviously. But this is like a color-shifting night sky. Mostly it appeared teal for me, but easily shifts to shades of blue and purple, depending on the angle.
Do you have a favorite? It's so hard to choose, but I think my favorite is Tyche, with matte Hemera coming in as a close second. Unfortunately the pre-order window is closed, but there is a possibility that they'll restock it once more. Keep an eye out for that! This trio was such an awesome introduction to Fair Maiden Polish and I definitely plan to purchase more in the future. Thanks for reading!
