Morgan Taylor Beauty and the Beast Nail Polish Collection
Looking for my Beauty and the Beast inspired nail art? Check out my recent post!
I was recently contacted by Preen.Me to swatch and review the new Morgan Taylor Beauty and the Beast Spring 2017 collection, which I'm very excited about! Of all the Disney movies I watched growing up, Beauty and the Beast was always my favorite. This collection is based on the upcoming live action version, which I'm excited to see as well, even though as an adult, the whole premise is a bit creepy... but nail polish, right?! Check out the trailer if you haven't seen it already.
About the collection, from Morgan Taylor:
I received these products compliments of Morgan Taylor as part of the #PreenMeVIP program. This post reflects my honest opinions and is based on actual product use. You can also see my swatches on Preen.Me.
I have swatches of each shade, with and without the Enchanted Patina topcoat. I also have another post sharing my enchanted rose nail art. Let's take a look!
Potts of Tea
3 coats + topcoat
Potts of Tea is a nearly white creme with a super subtle pink shimmer. Formula was a bit sheer and streaky, but not bad for a white with shimmer. Very soft and clean, but the shimmer is more evident in the bottle.

I wasn't a fan of this shade with the topcoat. Against my skin tone it just looks kind of blah.
Days in the Sun
3 coats + topcoat
Days in the Sun is a pale yellow creme with a subtle pink shimmer. Formula was streaky, but that’s not unusual for a yellow. At first this reminded me a lot of an older Orly called Melodious Utopia, but the Orly is more sheer and slightly brighter.
Days in the Sun + 1 coat of Enchanted Patina
Again, not a fan of this combination.
Gaston and On and On
2 thick coats + topcoat
Gaston and On and On is a sky blue creme. Two thick coats gave me full coverage, but next time I would do 3 thinner coats for a more even finish.

Yet again... not a fan. I will say the patina topcoat transforms each shade more than I expected, but I personally don't care for it over the lighter shades.
Plumette with Excitement
3 coats + topcoat
Plumette with Excitement is a baby pink creme. The formula was a little streaky, but topcoat evened everything out nicely. I love these pale, clean shades, especially for spring.

This was an interesting combo. Not something I would personally wear, but it ended up sort of a metallic nude, which I don't think I've really seen.
Be Our Guest
2 coats + topcoat
Be Our Guest is a medium pink crème, with a slightly crelly finish. The formula on this is fantastic! Very creamy with an almost plasticized, super shiny finish. Love this one.
Be Our Guest + 1 coat of Enchanted Patina
I don't hate this. It feels like a vintage shade. Sort of a frosty mauve.
The Last Petal
1 COAT + topcoat
My personal favorite from the collection! The Last Petal is a reddish berry shade glowing with shimmer. THIS IS 1 COAT! Just one, super easy, practically painted itself coat. This shade is so rich... not typical for spring, but really beautiful.
The Last Petal + 1 coat of Enchanted Patina
Eh, not bad. I think the patina topcoat just isn't for me. The formula is good and it has great coverage for a "transforming" topcoat, it's just not my personal taste. This shot includes a peek at some nail art I created using a decal from Born Pretty Store.
Bonus nail art!
Not that this took much effort from me, but I thought it coordinated well. The base is 1 coat of The Last Petal plus 1 coat of Enchanted Patina on three nails. The accent nail features gold rose decal stickers from Born Pretty Store. Check out my other post to see my hand-painted enchanted rose nail art.
