Forever Magic, New Collection from Forever Polished! Part II: “Blue Smoke and Twin Connection”


Two coats of Forever Polished in Blue Smoke.

Before I start this post I just want to ask you one question:

Is this not the most amazing blue holographic polish that you have ever seen???

Just in case you didn’t catch yesterdays post explaining what this collection is based on, here you go 🙂


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):


Reckless Magic:

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 (

Hopeless Magic:

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(

Fearless Magic:

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(

Endless Magic:

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(

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(

“Blue Smoke” is maybe my favorite blue indie polish ever! Yes that’s right I said EVER! I have been wanting a blue holographic polish that reminded me of the night sky, but I could never find one…until NOW!!

I can not put into words how this polish makes me feel when I look at it. It’s perfect… magic… and I can’t get enough of it. I never want Ashley to stop making this shade because I don’t ever want to run out.

You must be thinking “oh Megan, you’ll find some other blue polish to go crazy over, you always do.”… No, no I won’t and I know this because I don’t really wear blue polishes and the ones that I do have are very pretty…. However, they aren’t  even at the same level as Blue Smoke!

I am so upset that I wasn’t able to take pictures for this post in sunlight this afternoon. The cold front that moved on through Florida today really messed the day up for me. The sun was nowhere to be found and for that I am truly sorry. I guess you are going to have to get your own bottle on Sunday to see what I’m taking about.

“Blue Smoke” is the most gorgeous deep blue nonlinear holographic polish that you will ever see.



Blue Smoke has a perfect formula and you only need two coats to get full coverage. Remember to use a top coat to make sure your manicure is super shiny 🙂



I paired Blue Smoke with “Twin Connection” because I wanted to make an abstract of the night sky.

“Twin Connection” is a clear based glitter top coat. You will find white and black tiny squares and bar glitters.



The formula goes on so smooth and there is enough glitter mix in the polish that one dip of the brush picks up an exceptional amount of glitter that I only needed one coat. Remember to use a top coat to make sure your manicure is super shiny 🙂



$8.00 for a 15 ml bottle

    I love polish based on movies and books. I’ve never heard of this author Higginson- so I just got the first book for free on my Nook. Looks like a long one!

    WOW!!! Love this one! In fact, all your polishes are stunning. And the shape of your nails is perfect – serious nail envy 😀 x

    • MeganfromTLG says: they aren’t.. hahaha I am so anal about the shape, two of them grow weird, so it’s such a pain to try and get them all to look the same! I just went crazy yesterday with the nail file and they are all short!

  6. wow! I like it soo much 🙂
