Forever Magic, New Collection from Forever Polished! Part I: “Star-Crossed Lovers and Kiran’s Ocean Eyes”
I am so excited to be able to share these soon to be released polishes from Forever Polished!
The Forever Magic Collection is set to be released this Sunday, the 20th of January! There are eight polishes in total and I was planing on sharing all of the polishes in one huge spam post on the 20th to coincide with the release but Ashley and I were just too excited to keep these swatches to ourselves!
Ashley is beyond excited about her new collection of polishes! She has worked so hard to come up with the perfect creations to showcase her love of the Star Crossed Series of books by Rachel Higginson. The series consists of Five books so far (and as Rachel Higginsons adds to her series, so will Ashley to her collection of polishes):
16 year old Eden Matthews has been in and out of private schools for the last two years. Kingsley is her last chance to finish high school and she is determined to simply do that. But when she meets Kiran Kendrick and her world opens to something she thought only existed in fairy tales, she’s unsure what her future will hold. Suddenly she is captivated by a boy who seems to be the source of all of her problems and struggling to rescue her best friend from a foreign prison. When attempts are made on Kiran’s life, Eden alone must save him. Thrust into a world that is more make-believe than reality, Eden has to find her own destiny without losing those she loves most. Reckless is an intricate story of mystery, adventure, magic and love. Eden Matthews is an unlikely heroine set on a path to save the world and her loved ones before its too late (http://www.goodreads.com).
After returning home from Romania, and successfully saving her best friend Lilly, Eden Matthews must now come to terms with her future as an Immortal. She is in love with the Crowned Prince, but he is betrothed to someone else.
Her family desperately wants her to join their rebellion, but that would mean fighting against her one, true love, Kiran Kendrick. She must fight off assassins that want her dead, an Immortal rite of passage that takes her to India and a deadly disease that no one has thus far survived. Danger seems to lurk around every corner as Eden Matthews struggles to keep her true identity a secret and protect those that she loves.
Eden must find a way to be with Kiran, or turn her back on him forever and fight to save her people. Hopeless Magic is the second installment of the Star-Crossed series(http://www.goodreads.com).
Eden Matthew’s world is in shambles. Her grandfather viciously murdered, her twin brother held without magic, and her best friends imprisoned, all at the hands of the one man that was supposed to love her for eternity. She has been betrayed, and now she is being hunted by a king that wants her dead. Eden must pick up the pieces of her life and stand alone against the tyranny that threatens to destroy her world. Alone she must find a way to rebuild the Resistance, locate her missing parents, save her loved ones and take down the monarchy. Everything is against her, including forbidden feelings of a love that she thought was buried. She has declared war and now stands on the precipice of defeat. Losing is not an option however, and Eden must find a way to overcome her emotions, fight through her pain and restore the magic to her kingdom. Fearless Magic is the third installment of The Star-Crossed Series(http://www.goodreads.com).
In the final installment of the Star-Crossed Series, we find Eden Matthews a prisoner in the very household she set out to destroy. She is without magic and engaged to the same boy who betrayed her and everyone she loves. With her wedding looming on the horizon, conditions for her people continue to worsen and her goal of offering her kingdom freedom seems further away than ever. Her brother is free however, and building a Rebellion that hopes to rescue her. Eden’s parents are working with the Resistance and inside the Citadel Eden finds more allies than she thought possible. However, there is more at stake for Eden than just an unwanted marriage. Her heart is on the line too, as she fights the pressures of palace life, the prejudice ingrained in her people and a seemingly unbeatable king. Endless Magic is the fourth and final installment of the Star-Crossed Series(http://www.goodreads.com).
The Reluctant King:
Avalon St. Andrews has endured Hell and war in an attempt to secure freedom and immortality for his people. Raised and conditioned to be both warrior and leader, he now sits on a throne with his sister Eden, governing the Kingdom in peace. While his people enjoy the benefits of his struggle and loss, he is restless, bored and alone.
Avalon is summoned to fight to save his people once more as the Kingdom is threatened by a brand new evil. In addition to reigning in a kingship he doesn’t want, he is fighting against the very people he has fought so hard to protect. They are determined to throw away their newfound freedom and their newfound leaders.
In this war and in this kingship he feels alone. And for the first time he feels hollow. That is until Amelia Cartier shows up, invading his every thought and shaking up his carefully controlled world.
Now he faces yet another battle—making Amelia his queen(http://www.goodreads.com).
The two polishes that I’m going to share with you in this post are based on Kiran and Edens love and Kiran’s beautiful eyes as explained by Eden.
I had no idea what this collection was about until Ashley told me and then I had to googled it. Now I really want to explore the series, I plan on purchasing them this weekend. I have been wanting to find a good book to read for pleasure since school ended. Thanks to Ashley, I believe that I have found a series that looks to be very enjoyable. I love books that deal with fairy-tales retold, magic, fairies, love, war…good and evil.
“Star-Crossed Lovers” is a very simple polish that only contains three types of glitter. However these three glitters mixed together make a gorgeous nail polish. In Star-Crossed Lovers you will find tiny blue stars and red hearts swimming in very fine holographic silver.
The formula for “Star-Crossed Lovers” was even better than I expected. I wasn’t sure how this polish would look on the nail, but as soon as I put it on it was every easy to work with. I only needed three thin coats and had no trouble getting any of the shaped glitter out. I actually wanted to have the first coat with no hearts or stars so I could have a plain base to start with, but the stars really wanted to get out of the bottle!
The formula is perfect, really Ashley has blown me away, I am very impressed.
Bonus: If you like the new fad of “textured” polishes than Star-Crossed Lovers is for you! The polish dries to a “textured” finish, so you can leave it like that or add a top coat to smooth it out. Either way it’s a win,win.
“Kiran’s Ocean Eyes”
“Kiran’s Ocean Eyes” is a baby blue pearl based polish with holographic silver hex glitters and holographic blue fine glitter. This polish is very classy, elegant and feminine; simply gorgeous and I can’t imagine adding anything else to it.
“Kiran’s Ocean Eyes” has a perfect formula, I used three thin coats but you could get away with two. There is no need to use undies which makes me really happy that I don’t have to do an extra step to achieve the same looks as in the bottle.
$8.00 for a 15 ml bottle
