Today I’m pleased to announce my second guest blogger, my friend C. C has introduced me to a lot of great brands, and is queen of all things glitter, holo, and pink. She’s kindly agreed to share some of her polish adventures on my blog, starting with Ever After Mystery Prototypes:
If there is one thing I love, it is when Ever After has their mystery prototypes (often referred to as MPTs). Ever After describes these as “Assorted one of a kind and small batch polishes. Very limited quantities so grab them while supplies last.” There is usually a limit of two to three per customer and you need to be fast in order to purchase them.
Throughout the past few months, I have been lucky to obtain 7 MPTs. In the picture below you can see that Ever After uses an alphabet system to keep track of their prototypes. Good luck trying to track down the complete alphabet.
The first color I am going to review is MPT D. This is a pink leaning nude that is packed with metallic glitter with a touch of scattered holographic microglitter. It is the perfect nude with a touch of sparkle. This shade is very sheer and was still translucent after two coats. It took about four or five coats to become opaque, so an under color is strongly suggested.
The second MPT in this review is MPT G. This color was so popular that Ever After did a mass production of this color, which is still available for purchase on their website as I am writing this. This color is a deep plum linear holo with gold glitters. This polish is so packed with holographic glitter that even the bottle shines in dull lighting. I am a purple glitter holo addict, so this color was definitely pleasing to me. This color has a great formula and is opaque in about two or three coats.
I missed a batch of prototypes, so my next letter begins with an S. I would describe MPT S as a berry microglitter with a slight gold duo effect. The gold is more evident in the bottle than it is in any swatch. This color is semi sheer, almost jelly like, giving the glitter a multidimensional look. This color was opaque in about three coats.
Next we have MPT T. There seem to have been plenty of T to go around, as all of my polish pals received a T with their prototypes as well. MPT T can be described as a deep teal packed with copious linear holo and lots of irridescent flakies. It is a gorgeous color. The formula is nice and smooth and is opaque in two or three coats.
MPT U can be described as a bright teal with blue and pink shimmer with some metallic flakes. Like MPT D, this color is very sheer and needs about four coats to become fully opaque. This is an extremely gorgeous color, but an under color is recommended.
Based on comments in the Ever After fan group, MPT X has become a popular color, with many fans requesting to own this color. It is a sheer aqua with a lavender shift. This color works as a great top coat to transform your colors. I layered MPT X over Julep’s Johnny to show how it transforms the color.
Lastly I have a pink color from the last batch of mystery prototypes. This color however is not labeled as part of the alphabet and instead is just labeled “prototype.” I have not seen anyone else receive this color, so I wonder if it is one of the one of a kind colors mentioned in the website description. This is a very creamy carnation pink with subtle gold glitter. It is opaque in one coat.
I hope you enjoyed reading and looking at these wonderful mystery prototypes by Ever After; I know I certainly enjoyed playing with them. Keep an eye out for the next announcement of when they will be selling more of these, as I am sure you will enjoy them.
