Fair Maiden Polish has always done a great job with soft and pretty shades so I knew whatever they had cooking up for spring would be pretty awesome, and I was not let down when it arrived!
The Fair Maiden Polish Garden Party collection consists of 9 shades total and will be available for sale on March 21st in their shop. I used Out The Door top coat for the below photos and had no issues with any of these formula-wise- you can tell they really take their time to perfect each formula. Let’s take a look!
Fair Maiden Polish Gilded Garden is described as a strinkingly metallic polish with rose gold flecks and a linear holo finish. This polish is special because it is the only limited edition that will be releasing with the line- only 100 bottles will be made. It comes with their signature rose gold arrow ring that is suitable for wearing or leaving as a beautiful bottle embellishment. Two coats. This polish is a serious stunner and I can honestly say I have absolutely nothing else like it in my collection!
Fair Maiden Polish Stargazer is described as a classic medium pink-red offset with green flash and soft linear holo, inspired by the Stargazer Lily. Two thin coats although you could get away with one thicker coat. Work appropriate while not being boring, love it! A little dustier of a pink in person.
Fair Maiden Polish Sweet Honeysuckle is described as a soft flesh creme with golden flash and violet red sparkle. Three thin coats but you could easily get away with two thicker ones. I’m always a fan of soft peachy pinks so this one was really nice.
Fair Maiden Polish Evening Primrose is described as a pastel yellow creme offset with a deep blush flash. Three thin coats to cover some streakiness, typical of pastel yellows. Yellows never look very good on me so this one wasn’t my favorite but I think it’d look nice on other skintones.
Fair Maiden Polish Green Goddess is described as a light green holo polish with a golden flash and inspired by the Green Goddess Calla Lily. Three coats. This has such a lovely golden quality to it, really incredible.
Fair Maiden Polish Mint Succulent is described as a soft seafoam blue-green polish with a strong violet orange flash and linear holo. Two coats. This color is just….wow. So unique and beautiful, I really fell in love with it.
Fair Maiden Polish Blue Moon Wisteria is described as a medium deep blurple cream offset with a strong violet purple flash. Two coats and this had a bit more of a watery formula compared to the others- not too bad as long as you don’t overload your brush. This is really pretty and unique but doesn’t stand out to me as much as the others in the collection did- not necessarily a bad thing, it’s nice if you want a more subtle look.
I may also be biased because blurple is pretty much the bane of every blogger’s existence (or is it just photography newbs with crappy cameras like me? I’ve tried to white balance, I swear) because it always wants to photograph more blue than it is and then I find myself feeling super self conscious about my photos because even though I write that it’s more purple in person, not everyone reads and, and…..yeah. So, I typically find myself flipping tables and yelling at the bottle, “YOU’RE SO BEAUTIFUL, WHY CAN’T YOU SHOW YOUR TRUE SELF?!”. Sorry for the random blurple rant! This polish is pretty! I did my best to color edit it but I’d still say it’s still more purple in person.
Fair Maiden Polish Neptune Rose is described as a bright orchid creme with turquoise flash and violet sparkle. Two coats. Wow, this color is bright (even moreso in person)! I felt like Space Alien Princess Barbie while wearing it and I love it.
Fair Maiden Polish Maiden’s Blush is described as a light purple linear holo with hints of violet red sparkle throughout and inspired by the Maiden’s Blush Lilac. Three coats. Purple lovers definitely need this! This is just a touch of a warmer purple in person.
Overall, I think this is a fun collection for spring that offers a variety of finishes and colors so that anyone can find one to suit their own tastes- after all, Fair Maiden Polishes motto is that every woman should have a nail polish she loves and that makes her feel like a fair maiden. Actually, I may have just made that up. It sounded good though, right? Personally, as a pastel hater, I was particularly happy to see both traditional and nontraditional spring shades. My personal favorites from this collection are Mint Succulents, Green Goddess, Neptune Rose and Gilded Garden.
Again, this collection releases on March 21st at 10 AM CST in their shop and their launches usually go extremely quickly, so I highly recommend setting an alarm if you want to snag any of these.
