Ever After Polish - "In the Golden Afternoon" Spring Collection (swatches and review)

**press sample**
Hi guys! Today I have another beautiful Spring collection to share with you! This is the "In the Golden Afternoon" collection from Ever After Polish!

Month of June is a beautiful pastel teal crelly filled with filled with green to turquoise color shifting multichrome flakies! For my photos I did three thin coats, but depending on your application, you may get away with just two. Since these are flakies, it removed really easily as well.

Lazy Daisies is a gorgeous creamy white crelly packed with golden flakies and a hint of shimmer! My fav of the collection! Here I did three thin coats plus topcoat! This is more on the creamy white side for sure, so if you prefer a more opaque white look, you could layer this over a white base!

Bread and Butter Flys is a beautiful pinky/nude crelly filled with shimmer and those gorgeous multichrome flakies that shift from purple, magenta and teals! Here I did three thin coats, but you may get away with just two.

Don't Wake Me in the Morning Glory is an amazing blurple crelly filled with blue micro flakies that sort of glow within, as well as pearly white hex glitters in various sizes. Here I did three thin coats plus topcoat. This one can be a little sheer and is almost more jelly feeling to me.

The add-ons!

Also being offered with the collection, is the option to add-on Water Slide Decals from Green Eyed Goddess and/or cute little earrings made with polish created by The Holo Pineapple!

The earrings are created by Brittany of The Holo Pineapple! She makes super cute nail polish and resin jewelry! I personally have a ton of her stuff and love every single piece! These earrings are made of resin flowers in various colors and the earring posts are made from an alloy metal, such as zinc. All of their products are nickel and lead free.

The Water Slide Decals from Green Eyed Goddess are adorable as well! This is honestly the first time I have ever used Water Slides. I've received them as samples in orders, but they always seem to disappear in my drawer of nail art supplies...haha!

These were so pretty and really easy to use. Simply cut out the image you want and soak it in water for literally like 4 seconds, then slide it from its backing and place it on the nail. I then soaked up any excess water using a makeup sponge and then applied topcoat!

They definitely would have been more vibrant over a light or white base, but I really wanted to incorporate them in with the Ever After Collection.

Note: The polishes are a tad more on the jelly/crelly side and didn't really gradient super well using a sponge. I painted each half of the nail a different color and then lightly sponged over that. (just didn't want to give false advertising!)
