Antique Princess Duo by Powder Perfect

It has been awhile since I have blogged... Who knew life could get so busy?! Today I am back with a glamorous duo from Powder Perfect. This duo is available for international customers from Mei Mei's Signatures today!

"Forgotten Princess" - An olive green crelly base with beautiful gold to fuchsia flakies. Personally I'm not a fan of the olive green base colour, but I do love that it is packed with stunning colour changing flakies. The flakies give this polish lots of dimension and depth.

"Contested Crown" - A mauve purple holo with blue to purple shifting micro flakies. Now this is more my kind of polish, I am really loving the deep purples at the moment. This polish is super pretty and much more complex to look at in person. The micro flakies do a wonderful job of softly adding to the colour of this polish with out being too overwhelming.

Cry Baby Collection by Glam Polish

Glam Polish has just released their Cry-Baby limited edition collection. This is a six piece collection featuring a variety of glitters and flakies. Overall the formula of these polishes was nice and workable, as expected from Glam Polish. For all of my swatches I used two coat plus a glossy top coat. All of these glamorous polishes are now available from Glam Polish.  Due to the unpredictability of life I wasn't able to get sunlight shots of these polishes, however they do contain holographic glitter so you know they will look awesome in the sunlight!


"Teardrops Are Falling" - A black jelly base with a rainbow of different sized silver and gold holographic glitters.

The Haven Collection by Powder Perfect

The Haven Collection by Powder Perfect combines two of my favourite things, pastel colours and holographic finishes. This collection is a tribute to the special bond and loving relationship between a mother and her child. I love that pastels were chosen for this collection, it seems to be a perfect fit for a mother's gentle love and a child's soft touch. All of these polishes had a wonderful easy to work with formula. For each of my swatches I used two thin coats plus a glossy top coat.
