shades of the evil queen {e.l.f. disney villains 12 piece nail polish collection swatches + review}

The e.l.f. Disney Villains 12 Piece Nail Polish Collection has been in my possession since Christmas 2013, but I've only begun using it over the past few months. Not too long ago I showed you swatches of the 3 Maleficent shades, and today I'm bringing you the shades of The Evil Queen {of Snow White fame obvi}. The shades of Cruella De Vil and Ursula will be coming soon.

clockwise from top left: Pot of Gold; Cranberry; Thunderstorm.

Cranberry is a Deep Metallic Red with Gold Microshimmer. It's like Christmas in a bottle {and so apropos for the yearly Thanksgiving feast - which is how I'll be wearing it this year}. Cranberry is hyper pigmented and such a lush + beautiful shade for the holiday season. Formula was phenomenal - super easy to work with, and very quick-dry. This shade actually dried semi-matte for me, so you definitely need a top coat for shine! This is 2 coats.

Pot of Gold is a Metallic Gold. Le sigh...it's like liquid metal, yes? Pot of Gold is another stunning holiday shade {that also looks beautiful for year-round sparkle}. The formula, again, was great here. Bonus: No brushstrokes! This is 2 coats.

Thunderstorm is a Deep Teal/Dark Green/Stormy Gray Creme. Not sure how they did it, but OMG e.l.f. somehow managed to capture angry, about-to-downpour storm clouds in a bottle. I know. This shade makes me think of the Furies that always seemed present around the Underworld's Hades and Persephone in Greek Mythology {I read a lot}. The formula for Thunderstorm was slightly thinner than that of Cranberry and Pot of Gold, but built to opacity nicely. This is 2 coats.

AVAILABILITY: This particular set was a 2013 Limited Edition; however, you can buy the bottles individually for $2.00 each here {some shades are no longer available}.
