The Cinderella Collection From Morgan Taylor

The Cinderella Collection From Morgan Taylor is so feminine and iconic. Cinderella once again steps onto the silver screen and onto your nails. It’s so exciting that Morgan Taylor has collaborated with Disney for their new live-action film, Cinderella. The film will debut in theaters on March 13, 2015. I’ve watched the trailers so many times I’ve nearly worn out the link! Naturally when you think of Cinderella, explosions of color and fantastical whimsy come to mind. Not to mention glitter! I mean really. Any fairy Godmother is not worth her salt unless she’s packing a healthy amount of magical glitter. The Cinderella Collection From Morgan Taylor are inspired by the film’s colorful storyline and textures perfectly. From the would-be princess’s carriage to her sparkly glass slippers, your nails can be properly outfitted for the movie’s launch.

Today I’ll be sharing with you all three sets, which are available on Loxa Beauty NOW as of this post, Wednesday, January 28, 2015.

All three sets making up the The Cinderella Collection From Morgan Taylor are amazing shades for spring. More Than a Fairytale contains "Party At The Palace" and "My Carriage Awaits". May I Have This Dance? contains "Watch Your Step, Sister!" and "Ella of a Girl". My Inner Princess contains "If The Slipper Fits" and "Best Ball Gown Ever".

Here come the swatches! We’ll start with More Than a Fairytale:

I seriously love this one. Party At The Palace is a nice formula and I love that golden shimmer.

Party At The Palace is a turquoise/tiffany shimmer with golden flecks. A really nice formula along with a unique shade, two coat polish makes this a winner in my book.

I think My Carriage Awaits now has to be my favorite orange/peach of all time now. Application is a tad tricky, a bit on the thick side. But it self corrects nicely.

My Carriage Awaits has the same pigmented creme formula as Ella of a Girl and Watch Your Step, Sister! If you look in just the right light however you'll see a faint shimmer of pinky peach and gold. Gorgeous!

I had to add this little mani idea before posting. I was thinking about what I could do with the “My Carriage Awaits” shade. I love the soft peachy shade and I’m glad they didn’t go with a true pumpkin tone for this one. In the film it looks like the pumpkin that gets transformed into a carriage actually turns golden. Then of course when the clock strikes midnight it would turn back into it’s original form. So in this super easy mani using MCA, I added the conversion of gold using 18k gold flake topcoat, and on the accent nail a representation of the clock almost striking midnight.

Here are the swatches from May I Have This Dance:

Watch Your Step, Sister is a smooth creme and it only took two coats for full opacity. It's on the thick side of the spectrum but self correcting. I think this will work well on virtually any skin tone.

Watch Your Step, Sister is a brilliant pink creme. I can't wait to wear this one in the summer with a tan. It's very pigmented.

Ella of a Girl is hyper-pigmented and thicker than most pink. I used two coats.

Ella of a Girl is a soft pink creme. 2-3 coats is suggested but it's very pigmented and on the thick side. I used two coats with a light hand.

And the fabulous blues of Cinderella’s gown and slippers:

Using "If The Slipper Fits" as a sparkly base, I added butterflies in reference to the demure decor on Cinderella's ball gown and glass slippers.

If The Slipper Fits is a slightly textured when dry glitter polish. I wouldn't especially call this a glitter topper as two coats done right will bring it to full, sparkly opacity. I had no problem removing this one which is fabulous!

Here is "If The Slipper Fits" alone with just the butterfly jewel on the accent nail. Two coats, no top coat.

Best Ball Gown Ever in my opinion matches Cinderella's dress perfectly. I used two coats but you might want to use three depending on your technique. It's a beautiful periwinkle shimmer with a slight teal and golden flash. I loved how this applied.

Best Ball Gown Ever is such a pretty shimmer. I didn't have too much trouble with brush marks. Not as bad if it was just a metallic.

All of these magical polishes will transform you into the princess you always wanted to be. You may not be wearing a gossamer blue gown or tiny glass slippers, but at least your nails will make a handsome prince do a double take.

Since we are basically snowed in today I thought it might be a good chance to swatch and review this e.l.f. 12 Piece Nail Polish Set, compliments of the Disney branding. I’ve read mixed reviews and it seems to depend on the cube you end up with. Either way, I only had to pay $6 at Walgreens for 12 minis so…I win!

This beauty cube consists of 12, 3-free, Vitamin E infused formula. It boasts quick drying time, flawless revolutionary brush design and oh, no animal testing. We’ll see about that brush and formula claim and I will be totally frank. I bought this with my own $$ and as always, I give my unbiased opinion of how the product worked for me.

There may be variations in quality as I’ve said. There are a few colors in the set that I consider, “bugly”! I don’t like mauves in general, or peachy nudes if they look like the skin of a mannequin! But the formula may be spot on therefore they will be usefull as undies. (base color under more appealing paint)!

Each of the four villains lay claim to three shades in the set of 12.

• Evil Queen set (from Disney’s Snow White) includes Pot of Gold, Cranberry and Thunderstorm. I have a feeling these colors may be my favorites if the formulas test out.

• Cruella De Vil set (from Disney’s 101 Dalmations) includes Smokey Brown, Smokin Hot and Nude. Only the last one, Nude, looks yucky to me!

• Maleficent set (from Disney’s Sleeping Beauty) includes Bubble Gum Pink, Mad Mauve and Gina Girl. Gina Girl looks pretty interesting.

• Ursula set (from Disney’s The Little Mermaid) includes Coral Dream, Mint Cream and Sea Escape. Sea Escape shows promise.

The cube is beautifully packaged. This being said I do wish they’d have taken the effort to develop unique shades specific (not from regular line) to each Disney villain. And would it have been that difficult to name each polish something more specific to the stories? Anyway, I’m just curious.

I’d love to see e.l.f. or any other cosmetic company follow suit with more mini cubes like this. The price is right, even for $10. It would be fun to see full sets from movies like Twilight (not just singles), A Christmas Story, Princess Bride, etc.

I hope to upload my reviews today through tonite. Each color set will be displayed on three nails for each villain. Four blog posts total.

Have you purchased this set? What did you think? Let me know!
