Good morning, dear readers! I hope you've been having a wonderful so far! In my previous post, I shared the new Ever After Polish stamping polishes launching on the BRAND NEW website this Friday, and for today's blog post, I have another trio launching on the site for your viewing pleasure. I grew up listening to The Beatles as that was what my father always played in the car for road trips, and I am so excited to be sharing the Beatles Love, Part 1 Collection with you! I may burst from excitement if I don't show you these polishes *rightnow* so let's jump in and check them out!
Across The Universe
Three coat plus top coat
Across The Universe has an amazing formula! It applies smoothly and with minimal effort, and I had no issues with the flakes clumping or sticking up awkwardly on my nails. Occasionally a flake would be overhanging off a nail while applying this polish, but they are easy to gently push back up onto the nail or pull off, which ever you prefer. Some flake-filled polishes can be a bit too thick and tricky to work with, but this beauty practically applies itself!
Two coats plus top coat
If Yellow Submarine won't convince you to give yellow nail polish a chance, I don't know if any yellow could. While I'm not a die hard yellow polish fan, I can appreciate the colour, and it says a lot that Yellow Submarine is my favorite of this trio. The formula is a touch thicker than Across The Universe but still oh-so-easy to work with to get a flawless look on your nails. This polish is amazingly beautiful, so if you've been thinking of maybe giving yellow a chance or if you're already a fan, you'll want to pick up this one!
Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds
Three coats plus top coat
So much sparkled goodness and sadly these photos don't come close to doing this beauty justice! Densely packed with glitters, LITSWD applied nicely for me with three coats to achieve opacity. I can see a hint of bare nail in these photos, but it is so blingy on the nail I couldn't see any visible spots with the naked eye. You could easily apply this polish by soaking up some of the base with a cosmetic sponge before dabbing on the nail, but it's so easy to apply three coats and probably not worth the extra effort and supplies. If you prefer a slightly less blinged out look, Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds can be applied with one coat for a dense glitter topper.
I am loving how Ever After has interpreted these iconic Beatles songs, and if this is a representation of what we can expect to see, I can't wait to see future Beatles Love polishes! Even though there are only three shades in the first part, I love the variety of finishes across this trio!
The Beatles Love, Part 1 Collection will be launching on the new Ever After website located here this Friday, May 19th at 8pm EST. While they will not be stocked, the new website will be opening for public viewing at 8am EST on Friday as well so you can check out the new site then prior to the launch in the evening. Until then, you can visit the old website located here and pick up Dragon Eggs, Mother of Dragons, and over pours of the Indie Shop Limited Edition shade from this past weekend.
Is there a particular shade from this trio that has caught your attention? What Beatles songs do you hope to see inspire shades from future parts? I'd love to hear from you!
Until next time, dear readers, have a wonderful day!
