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.

"Hanalei Sunset" -  Indigo base with shimmering glass flecks, neon pink, holographic violet and bright pink holographic microglitter. I found the formula of this polish to be the most fiddly in this collection. I found that doing one thickish coat turned out better than doing two thinner coats as the second coat dragged a bit. For my swatch I did two coats on some nails and one coat on the other nails. The overall finished look is the same, it was just the application that made a difference. All nails were topped with a glossy top coat.
