Fair Maiden Polish @ Indie Expo Canada 2018

I purchased my very first Fair Maiden Polish in October of 2017 as part of the Polish Pick Up.  It was a gorgeous flakie polish called Luck Dragon (swatches here) inspired by Falcor of the Never Ending Story.  That polish is still one of my current favourites so I was excited to see what they'd have to offer at the Indie Expo this year, and I was not disappointed!

The IEC Exclusive,  Siren-ade

The Indie Expo exclusive polish, Siren-ade was the first to catch my eye.  A gorgeous opal base with silver holo and unicorn skin flakes, that has a flash of lavender.  I added some simple silver stamping over top and it just glowed!

After picking up the Siren-ade the volunteer directed my attention to a new collection not set to release until this July!   I picked up two of them, here is the first, The Illusionist.  Definitely a magical polish, the base is duo, possibly multichrome as I see it shift from purple to blue for sure and think I also see green at certain angles.  It is also packed with scattered silver holo and iridescent flakes.

The second I chose from the newest collection is Step Right Up, a copper/burgundy base with micro gold holo and multichrome shifting flakes.  Covered nicely in two coats but could have used a third thin one.  I really liked this one with my skin tone.

Fair Maiden also added a polish to the VIP bags for Indie Expo, and from what I've gathered they were all different polishes from the past!  I thought this was such a neat idea, and I lucked out and ended up with one from the December Polish Pick Up called Light Upon Light, which was in my wishlist cart, but did not make the final cut!  And now it's mine!  A gorgeous red with gold holo and purple flakes.

Now these next polishes were a bonus gift for helping out with the tutorial table, Fair Maiden had generously donated two complete sets of these neons to be used for the day.   These are the Rainbow Brights Collection , currently available on the website!  Some of them are so bright they freaked out my phone camera! (the green and yellow)  I was shocked that even on my super ridged nails they have great coverage in just two coats!  You'll notice the macro shots are almost in the dark, that close up the direct lighting made them blinding!  Definitely recommend this entire collection if you want some solid neon cremes for bases.

I did not get the name of the July release collection, but if you liked the two I chose and want to grab them when they do come out, just follow them on Facebook for the latest news!  So glad Fair Maiden had a table this year and very happy with everything I picked up!  Clearing room on the shelves now for them!

I hope you're all having an awesome weekend! ~ Kelly
