Fair Maiden Polish Swords and Lace: A Renaissance Fantasy Collection Swatches & Review

Press Sample

Fair Maiden Polish will be releasing a new collection on September 19th and I have it here to show you! This is the 8 piece Swords and Lace: A Renaissance Fantasy Collection and as a little surprise, there will be a small giveaway at the bottom! At Cosmoprof NA I received a bottle of Just A Mirage, and then I received a second bottle with the collection so I’ll be giving away the unused bottle to one of my readers. Entry will be super simple (seriously, you’ll just need to leave a comment and you are done!)

Let’s check this new collection out and then move onto the giveaway!
