In the spirit of doing something bright and fun for the start of June, I decided to do a mani using Ever After’s Don’t Wake Me in the Morning Glory. This polish was part of the Golden Afternoon Collection, released in April, but I hadn’t had a chance to use it yet.
Don’t Wake Me in the Morning Glory is described as a deep periwinkle/lavender crelli leaning jelly packed with blue micro flakes and a mix of opal and iridescent glitters. Even though I believe you should wear whatever you want, whenever you want, I have to say that it’s a perfect color for between summer in spring. It’s not overwhelmingly bold, but is bright and pretty. The various glitters make it really unique, and the blue micro flakes really add dimension to the color.
Don’t Wake Me in the Morning Glory had one of the best formulas of the Ever Afters I’ve tried so far. It was really easy to work with, and applied very evenly. It also had a good dry time, which is important for a more sheer shade like this. It really builds with each coat, and I noticed the glitter sticks to the nail better once the first coat is done. I decided to apply three coats for full coverage, and didn’t have any visible nail line.
In addition to Don’t Wake Me in the Morning Glory, I was also wearing Ever After Crelly today in Fairy Princess. (Who am I kidding, I’m always wearing Ever After Crelly…) Anyway, I know this one wasn’t in my last crelly review, so I thought I’d give it a quick shout out. Fairy Princess is scented with a sprinkling of frozen mango, pink sugar and raspberry sorbet with champagne bubbles, freesia, and cashmere musk. It’s a very clean scent, and I think the champagne and freesia notes are probably the strongest. As expected, it was very moisturizing, and I loved how quickly it absorbed.
All in all, a wonderful mani day.
p.s. On a completely unrelated note, I’ve realized it’s a little silly to blog anonymously, since I generally post these using my personal profile. So there you have it, folks, from now on, I’ll be blogging as me, Abby.
