Fair Maiden Cat & Mouse | Polish Pickup October 2020: Animation

It is Polish Pickup time again! I have a few lovelies to share this month, and I am starting it off with Fair Maiden's Cat & Mouse. This shade is inspired by the most famous duo in the history of animation. I spent countless hours watching this show as a kid, and I love that it is represented in such a lovely shade.

(promotional samples ahead)

This is a pretty, cool-toned taupe filled with Fall toned flakes and a shit-ton of shifting shimmers. It looks like a beautiful sable wrapped in Autumnal glam. I generally love neutrals, and this one is a great twist on the traditional mid toned taupe-mauve. 

The formula is a creamy jelly, and it applies exactly like you expect it to. I let each layer dry a bit to insure that I didn't drag any flakes out of place. I can see the tiniest hint of nail line here, but in real life it wasn't noticeable. I wouldn't do three coats for this shade for two reasons: it doesn't need it because the sparkly distracts from any possible sheerness and I think it will get too thick with another coat and top coat.

I used two coats here followed by a layer of Seche Vite. 

I love this macro. It is like leaves on a twilight path.
