ellagee Faerie Princess Nail Polish collection swatches + review

Press Sample buttonGood morning, fantastic readers! Today I have a review that I was hoping to get on the blog last week, and well, you know how that turned out since I’ve been so ill. Anyway, the ellagee Faerie Princess collection is a translucent collection of pastel holo flakie nail polishes. I’m really digging on quite a few of these, and I have a lot (and I do mean A LOT) of photos to show you. Click through after the collage to see each one individually!

I’ll talk about formula first, because across the board, every single one of these polishes was super easy to work with, even when layered. I’ve used 2 coats for each polish by itself, and 1 coat when layered over Cult Nails Nevermore (which was 1 coat). Each swatch is shown with 1 coat of Wet n Wild shiny top coat as well.

ellagee Lilliana is first, and this is a “sparkling sheer silver holo with pastel rainbow flakies.” With this one only, I’m also showing it over KBShimmer Let’s Not Coral (2 coats), just to show how it could be layered.

Lastly, here are each of these polishes over Cult Nails Nevermore in the lightbox.

Each of these beautiful polishes is available for $11.50 or you can buy the whole collection for $62. My recommendations are definitely Lilliana for those pastel rainbow flakies; Breena for those gorgeous sea-green flakies; and Zanna for the stunning purple base with the blue flakies.

I’d love to know what your favorites are here! I know for some of you, you may be thinking these are too sheer BUT I promise you that you won’t regret picking any of these up. I can see so many uses for these, not just layering over other polishes but also for jelly sammiches (yay!), and totally changing the look of other polishes.

BTW, I’d love to know your thoughts on my natural light shots – should I continue with them?

  1. What an interesting and subtle idea for a collection! Seeing the whole hand mani with each shade alone really shows me the differences. And they are all so pretty!

  2. I think your swatches are gorgeous, but I wish these were just a bit more opaque. Regardless they are very ‘fairy’ like and cute. I think I’ll pick up Breena as you suggested!

  3. I like Breena and Zanna the best. Love the macro shots too by the way. After your teaser picture yesterday I couldn’t wait to see the full post. These do fit the fairy theme really well. Missed your gold sparkle background this time around but I see you got it in there for 1 photo. =)

  4. Nope, not too sheer for me! I adore these on their own– they’re so perfectly ethereal and magical! I’m particularly smitten with Dulcina and Zanna. Also YES to the multiple light shots! (thanks for the extra work it takes to be so thorough ♥)
