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".

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.

Get your pocketbooks ready and mark your calendars for May 11th! Because you’re going to want this collection of amazing glitter polishes from Sincerely Polish. I sampled three minis of the eight and I can tell you, they’re amazing! They also will be available in full size bottles. The formulas are consists toy smooth, opaque in two coats and one coat of clear topcoat, if you’re so inclined, make a gorgeous sparkly mani. Even without a topcoat, it’s surprisingly smooth.

These spritely handcrafted glitters in the Magical Pixie Hollow Fairies Collection are inspired by the Magical Pixie Hollow Fairies, and the collection is as follows. I chose to swatch Tinker, Vidia and Peri. You’ll love these and the other five in the collection are Rose (inspired by
Rosetta). Dessa (inspired by Iridessa) Silv (inspired by Silvermist). Rina (inspired by Zarina). And Fawn.

Tinker is inspired by "Tinkerbell". It's a glitter polish filled with sparkly lime green micro glitters sprinkled with micro silver prismatic holographic glitters and holographic gold dust.

I love the formulas on all,of these. Drying time was fairly quick and coverage is amazing. A thin coat over a color base is gorgeous, or you can use two coats on it’s own!

Zoya Dillon and Cosmo…Minty and Magical!

Zoya Dillon and Cosmo...Minty and Magical!

Zoya describes beautiful Dillon from the Spring 2014 Awaken Collection as a full-coverage (on a scale of 1-5 as a 5), a green mint metallic with a silver shimmer. I’d go beyond that. This minty wonder is on the warm side. So depending on the light, you may think you see a bit of golden shimmer instead of silver. But it’s just your eyes playing tricks on you. The finish is glossy and the application is a dream. I used two coats here. Then, just for fun…

I decided to compliment Dillon’s silver shimmer with Cosmo, one of three Magical PixieDusts from the 2014 Spring release. I painted my ring finger first with Dillon, then painted one half with Cosmo and picked out a few of the circle holo glitters and scattered them on Dillon. Cool! It’s almost like wearing jewelry on my fingertips! Zoya describes Cosmo as a silver crystal sparkle, textured PixieDust with mega hex iridescent or holographic particles.

I’m dying to get my hands on some more of the Awaken collection. And now Zoya has opened up preorders (shipping May 15) for three new Summer 2024 Magical PixieDusts; Gini, Bar and Arlo! Mama want! PLUS…12 new summer shades from the Summer 2014 collections, Bubbly Holo Glitters and Tickled Creams. Tickled shades are: Tilda, Ling, Rooney, Kitridge, Wendy and Rocha. Bubbly shades are: Stassi, Muse, Harper, Binx, Jessi and Alma. All are preorder able now and set to ship on May 15. I’m super excited about this release as they all look like winners and you know you can’t go wrong with Zoya’s formulas!
