Press Sample

You guys, I did it. I made it through Black Friday posting somehow. I was a little worried – and I thought I had 2 left to do, but one is for Saturday. Between my job and my son’s school work and projects – I was sweating a bit. So the final post today before all the craziness begins – is the Fair Maiden Polish The Nutcracker Collection!

Within this post we’ll be looking at The Nutcracker collection, the Black Friday Doorbuster polish, and a Limited Edition Nutcracker polish.

On top of these shades, Fair Maiden Polish will also be doing free shipping on any $75 or more purchase for Black Friday. There will also be some past exclusives coming back (they are a mystery!) as well as mystery prototypes. There is a Holiday 2018 polish as well that will be free with every order over $30.00 before shipping.

Oh and 25% Off Entire Store  (Excludes: Doorbuster and Mystery PT’s And Exclusives)

Fair Maiden Polish | It’s Christmas You Guys! (Doorbuster!)

It’s Christmas You Guys! is a dark evergreen jelly base loaded with holographic microglitter. This dries with a slight texture, but I was able to smooth it with one coat of top coat. If you use a thin top coat, it might require 2 coats though.

I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

This shade is also the $5.00 Doorbuster polish!

Fair Maiden Polish | The Nutcracker (Limited Edition)

The Nutcracker is a Limited Edition shade being released. Once it sells out it will not restock again.

The Nutcracker is a bright, medium red linear holographic with orange to gold flakes and shimmer. The base is a creme, so the holo isn’t super strong, but strong enough to know it’s there. It’s noticeable without being flashy. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

Fair Maiden Polish | The Land Of Snow

The Land Of Snow is a light greige base with champagne shimmer, linear holo and multichrome flakes that shift green to aqua to blue to violet to magenta. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

Fair Maiden Polish | Clara

Clara is a bright shade that’s a powder blue but almost tips into the mint family. Almost, not quite. It has scattered holographic and purple to pink to green shifting shimmer and multichrome flakes. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

Fair Maiden Polish | Toy Soldiers

Toy Soldiers is a gorgeous auburn base that shifts to deep berry with strong red to gold shifting shimmer and holographic microglitter. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

This shade has some texture and you might need 2 coats of top coat for a smooth finish.

Fair Maiden Polish | Sugar Plum Fairy

Sugar Plum Fairy is a pinky plum based multichrome that shifts fuchsia to a bronzey gold. It’s also packed with holo microglitters and iridescent glitters. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

This shade has a mild texture, so 2 coats of top coat is recommended.

Fair Maiden Polish | The Mouse King

The Mouse King is a deep blue based violet with shimmer that shifts magenta to golden green. It also has holographic micro glitters and iridescent flakes that shift green to aqua to violet. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

Two things to note with this shade:

  1. You will probably need a second coat of top coat for a smooth finish
  2. It has a TON of flakes in it. While I didn’t find an issue with application, if you aren’t prepared for it in this polish – it could cause problems. I recommend wiping the brush a bit to remove excess before applying so you get a nice, even layer. 

Fair Maiden Polish The Nutcracker Collection

Another stunning collection from Fair Maiden Polish! Several of these shades have microglitters in them, so I did add notes of which will or might need an extra coat of top coat for a smooth finish. Only 1 had slightly tricky application, and that was The Mouse King due to the flake content. Otherwise – no application issues!

As I mentioned above:

On top of these shades, Fair Maiden Polish will also be doing free shipping on any $75 or more purchase for Black Friday. There will also be some past exclusives coming back (they are a mystery!) as well as mystery prototypes. There is a Holiday 2018 polish as well that will be free with every order over $30.00 before shipping.
