Indie Swatch and Review - Partial Merry Grinchmas Winter 2016 Collection by Fair Maiden Polish

Nothing to Disclose

Hello lovely readers! Debuting in the blog is Fair Maiden Polish with two outstanding polishes from the Merry Grinchmas Winter 2016 collection. Keep reading after the jump for a closer look!

Fair Maiden Polish offered a Grinch-inspired 6-piece collection this Holiday season and I just had to own ♥ X 3 and Who-Pudding as soon as I saw swatches.

♥ X 3
This gorgeous jelly features linear holo and scattered holo micro glitter. The first coat looks a bit on the orange and applies a bit patchy; however, the second coat not only brings out the juicy cherry red color, but gives this polish a lot of depth and dimension. I did find that it stained by cuticles a bit, so is best to apply carefully. Shown below are 2 coats plus top coat.

This deep plum polish features strong linear holo and a gorgeous purple shimmer. This color combo is one of my favorite of 2016 and this is a polish that all nail polish addict should consider! Again, the first coat goes on a bit patchy, but it self-levels and covers beautifully with a second thin coat. Shown below are 2 coats plus top coat.

Overall, these 2 polishes are gorgeous. In fact, the whole collection is gorgeous and offers a great balance between traditional Christmas colors, ethereal colors, and rich winter colors.

These polishes retail for $10 US and are available here.

Did you get any of these polishes our are you considering getting them? I would love to hear from you!
