Ever After | Polish Con Exclusives

Painted Fingertips | Polish Con exclusives - Ever After #minneapolish

The polishes in this post were provided for my honest review.

Hi everyone!

If you’re thinking – ‘I thought Polish Con Minneapolis was over’, well, you’re right, but I still have some late swatches to share with you. With the almost 40 polishes that I already shared with you leading up to Polish Con, with exclusives and limited edition shades from many different brands, I didn’t quite have time to share my swatches from Ever After Polish. I have them to show you today, and don’t worry, most of these are still available in limited numbers on the Ever After website.

I’ll start off with the shade I actually wore on the day of Polish Con – Ever After #minneapolish.

Painted Fingertips | Polish Con exclusives - Ever After #minneapolish bottle macroI didn’t give much thought to what I’d wear on my nails to Polish Con – because I was swatching for the event, I needed to just wear whichever polish I got on my nails the night before. I did at least put in the effort to have the same shade on both hands! And fortunately, #minneapolish was the perfect choice.

Painted Fingertips | Polish Con exclusives - Ever After #minneapolish#minneapolish is a fuchsia base with iridescent teal-purple-magenta flakies, purple-green colour shifting shimmer, and holo effect. The official description of this shade is a dusty pink creme with pink-violet shimmer and purple-pink leaning iridescent crystal flakes, with just a hint of holo.

Painted Fingertips | Polish Con exclusives - Ever After #minneapolishIsn’t that pretty? This was listed as an event exclusive, but it looks like it is now listed on the Ever After site, so there may have been some overpour.

Painted Fingertips | Polish Con exclusives - Ever After #minneapolish macroAren’t those little flakes pretty? The formula on this shade was great, although with all the flakes and shimmer, it needed three coats for full opacity. Here I am showing three coats of #minneapolish plus top coat. This is such a pretty colour – I love how it’s just slightly dusty – and it got me several compliments at Polish Con.

Painted Fingertips | Polish Con exclusives - Ever After #minneapolishI just loved the name of this polish – since I blog about nail polish and I’m always typing those words, I’ve found myself typing Minneapolish rather than Minneapolis many times. It’s the perfect combination between this city and our shared hobby!

Painted Fingertips | Polish Con exclusives - Ever After Land of 10,000 Lakes bottle macroNext up, we have Land of 10,000 Lakes. This was listed as the VIP Polish, so many lucky VIPs probably have it already, but if you missed out, this one is also still listed on the Ever After site.

Painted Fingertips | Polish Con exclusives - Ever After Land of 10,000 LakesI really loved this one – it’s such a good teal! This is a gorgeous teal holo with blue-green flakes and vermilion shimmer. The official description is an aqua jelly holo with cyan violet UCC flakes and red orange fire shimmer.

I’m a sucker for a good teal polish, and this is a good one for sure.

Painted Fingertips | Polish Con exclusives - Ever After Party at the Marriott bottle macroThis is the one polish that is not listed on the website, and was intended only for guests who stayed at the Marriott hotel for Polish Con, so unfortunately it will likely be impossible to get a hold of at this point.

Painted Fingertips | Polish Con exclusives - Ever After Party at the MarriottParty at the Marriott is a bronze base jam-packed with bronze microflakies and green-to-copper shifting flakies. The official description is a russet brown crelly with green-pink UCC flakes, rose gold microflakes, bronze, copper and gold holo and copper flecks with copper glitter. It’s definitely packed with lots of coppery goodness!

Painted Fingertips | Polish Con exclusives - Ever After Party at the MarriottThe crelly base is sheer enough to let the flakies really shine, and needed 3 coats for opacity. Here I am showing 3 easy coats with top coat. Painted Fingertips | Polish Con exclusives - Ever After Party at the Marriott macro

This was definitely a nice incentive for those that were travelling to the Con to stay at the hotel and join in a little extra fun! It’s a gorgeous polish!

Painted Fingertips | Polish Con exclusives - Ever After You Betcha bottle macroI’ll start off with the purple holo called You Betcha!Painted Fingertips | Polish Con exclusives - Ever After You BetchaYou Betcha is a dusty purple holo. The official description is a deep dusty lilac mega holo with silver flecks and pewter holo.

Painted Fingertips | Polish Con exclusives - Ever After You BetchaFor some reason, I was a little underwhelmed by this polish. I think maybe it was all the flakies in all the other shades – this purer holo didn’t have as much going on. Or maybe even though I love purples, dusty shades, and holo, the combination isn’t quite my taste. It is a beautiful shade, though; I just wasn’t feeling it quite as much as the others. Painted Fingertips | Polish Con exclusives - Ever After You BetchaHere I am showing two lovely coats of You Betcha! with top coat.

Painted Fingertips | Polish Con exclusives - Ever After You Betcha macroI do think this would make a lovely base for some nail art, perhaps some simple stamping!

Painted Fingertips | Polish Con exclusives - Ever After You BetchaNext up is a rich gold, Doncha Know!Painted Fingertips | Polish Con exclusives - Ever After Doncha Know! bottle macroDoncha Know! is a metallic gold base packed with gold, bronze, and magenta flakes, and a splash of holo. The official description is an antique gold, aluminum glitter with metallic gold flakes and pink-gold UCC flakes. Painted Fingertips | Polish Con exclusives - Ever After Doncha Know!Wow – now that’s a GOLD! This is a stunning, vibrant shade with just the right amount of flakes to break up the pure gold a little. Painted Fingertips | Polish Con exclusives - Ever After Doncha Know!I forgot to record how many coats I used in this swatch, but it was either two or three coats plus top coat. Painted Fingertips | Polish Con exclusives - Ever After Doncha Know!I’ve always preferred silvery shades over golds, but this is one gold I’d definitely wear for a glamorous special occasion! Painted Fingertips | Polish Con exclusives - Ever After Doncha Know! macroI love it even more close up! Painted Fingertips | Polish Con exclusives - Ever After Doncha Know!Last but not least, we have a vibrant, fiery red, Skol!.

The official description is a deep crimson jelly with bronze-copper flecks, gold holo, and red-copper UCC flakes. Painted Fingertips | Polish Con exclusives - Ever After Skol! I was surprised by how much I loved this shade. Me and red polish aren’t always the best of friends and I wasn’t at all sure about the large flakes in the bottle. On the nail, though, this is such a fierce shade that I couldn’t help admitting that I love it. Painted Fingertips | Polish Con exclusives - Ever After Skol! I love those orange highlights that come out at angles like that! Painted Fingertips | Polish Con exclusives - Ever After Skol! Look at how squishy this shade is! Here I am showing three coats of Skol! with top coat.
