Ever After Polish Heart Breaker Trio Swatches and Review

Ever After Polish is releasing their Heart Breaker Trio this Sunday, January 31 at 4PM EST. This set of polishes are jellies with duochrome microflakes, perfect for wearing alone or using for a variety of nail art. Let's have a look!

Don't Mess Around With Me is a battleship gray jelly with blue-to-pink duochrome microflakes. I am wearing it here in four thin coats. It is a thicker polish, but spreads nicely and dries very fast and smooth.

Heart Breaker is a carmine jelly with blue-to-gold duochrome microflakes. This is more opaque than the other two, and I am wearing it in three thin coats, though two are enough.

These polishes are intended to be useful for layering, jelly sandwiches and nail art! The set includes a generous baggie of loose heart glitter. I dabbed a little on with my fingers between each of three coats in the mani below to give you an idea of how they look sandwiched. For a real mani, you might consider placing them in patterns with a wax pencil or toothpick.

I thought I would take advantage of their translucency for a simple tape mani and was really happy with the result. It is not at all a typical Valentine's design, but I prefer simple, graphic looks and this suited me. It was also very simple since I have shaky hands and am not very nail art savvy, so I would say this is a great look for beginners!

I also did some reverse stamping using the Bundle Monster BMXL10 plate and Celestial Cosmetics Onyx stamping polish. First I stamped the design on a cheap silicone baking mat I purchased on ebay for less than $3, then filled in the hearts with a brush. After it dried, I painted the back with a couple layers of top coat, then peeled it up after it dried with a tweezer. I applied to to my nails over a layer of tacky top coat, then cleaned up the edges with acetone. I would do this slightly differently next time. I should have put a ground layer of top coat down on the mat before stamping so that my top coat later would not smear the design. Also I should have trimmed the decals down before applying to minimize cleanup. This was my first time doing stamping decals so I will have an improved process for next time!
