Fair Maiden Michigan Avenue A PolishCon 2016 Exclusive

Fair Maiden has a reputation for awesome. At least here in Casa de Nichole. I was lucky to swatch a brown sugary shade last year...and I loved it. When I was offered the opportunity to swatch the Con exclusive shade, I jumped right on it. 



(promotional samples ahead)


This is a warm, brown sugary metallic super linear holo. There is a liberal dusting of coppery flakes and a pronounced pink flash. I can't even begin to describe how great this formula is here, guys. It is perfectly smooth and level, but not thin. It is sheer enough that you get a luminous depth to the shade, but still opaque enough to be an easy two coater. 



Oh and that pink flash that I mentioned? The one you see so clearly in the pictures above? Yeaaaaah it shifts to a coppery gold. I bet you can't wait for the next Polish Con now. 


That rainbow is amazing. This is with the flash because outside still smells like an ashtray outside. I may never get out there again.


At the PolishCon in Chicago, I picked up another fifteen or so Fair Maiden shades...I have trouble resisting a good sale, yall. You might be able to grab this shade on the second-hand market, and if you do see it I would pounce on it. It stands out in my collection, and is definitely worth having. 

There are a few more collections in the shop, a few shades of which are sitting in the box waiting for me. The Fall collections are pretty stellar, and I am kicking myself for only grabbing half.

  7. I really want to like this shade because I love brown/copper polish, but the holo is a bit much for me. It's definitely pretty, but not something I would wear.
