Ever After Polish Golden Afternoon Collection: Swatches and Review

*Purchased by Me*
**Picture Heavy!!**

Happy humpday! I have an entire collection review to share with you today! This is Ever After's Spring 2016 collection, called The Golden Afternoon. The polishes are based off of the Golden Afternoon song from Alice in Wonderland, as well as this painting: 


The Golden Afternoon collection is made up of four polishes. Let's get started, shall we?

Ever After Bread & Butterflies

Bread and Butterflies is described on the Ever After site as a "peachy crelly base with ultra chrome flakes, scattered holo and gold shimmer."



 The formula on Bread & Butterflies was smooth and controllable. It was a bit thin on the first coat, which is the norm for crellies; it was opaque for me in three coats. The thin, buildable layers allow the gorgeous flakies to shine through! Shown in my swatch are three thin coats, plus glossy top coat. 



And here's what it looks like with matte top coat! My matte topcoat of choice is Essie's Matte About You. 


Ever After Lazy Dazies

The second polish, Lazy Dazies, is described as a "creamy white base with scattered holo shimmer and gold and platinum silver flakes."



 Lazy Dazies was also sheer on the first coat, but buildable; I reached full opacity in three coats. Dry time was great, as thin coats tend to dry faster. Shown are three layers, plus glossy top coat!



 With matte topcoat!


 Ever After Month of June


Month of June is a polish described as a "sea foam teal crelly with Ultra Chrome multi color flakes, glitter and blue to green shifting shimmer."




I almost got away with using two coats of Month of June for opacity, but I opted for three, to remain consistent with the others in the collection. Dry time was wonderful, and the polish dried smooth. Shown are three coats plus glossy topcoat.

Ever After Don't Wake Me In the Morning Glory

Last but not least is Don't Wake Me In the Morning Glory, a "deep periwinkle/lavender crelly leaning jelly packed with blue micro flakes and a mix of opal and iridescent glitters." 



 I was pleasantly surprised with this one! I expected the formula to be streaky, but it was nice and even. While it was thin, it was easily buildable, and I did not need to manipulate the glitter at all! When applied with top coat, this polish looks super squishy! Shown are three thin coats, plus glossy top coat.




And with matte topcoat!


So there you have it: The Golden Afternoon Collection from Ever After Polish! These polishes are available in full size individual bottles ($9.50-$10.50), or in a full size collection ($36.00) or a mini collection ($26.00). There are also now floral water decals and earrings available in the shop, and they are priced at $4.00-$5.00 each. 

I love all of these, but I think that my two favorites are Bread & Butterflies and Month of June! How about you? Are you planning to pick up any of these beauties?
