Powder Perfect Egyptology Part one – The Lower Kingdom

Powder Perfect Lower Kingdom

This collection makes for one hell of a sparkly post! This is part one of Powder Perfect’s Egyptology series – The Lower Kingdom – a set of five super sparkly glitters.

You can read more about Jacinta’s inspiration for the collection here, and I’ll never get bored of saying how much I admire her sources of inspiration that go way beyond over-done pop culture, but I’ll crack on with the sparkly pictures now!

P2 ‘Glamorous Finish Holo’ over Kiko 339 Cornflower

The delightful Sabine of My Polish Stash recently sent me a few European polishes in a swap, including this P2 topper polish. I have to be honest, I was much more pleasantly surprised when I tried it than I thought I would be. It’s really very lovely!

Straight up Swatch: Wet ‘n’ Wild ‘It’s all in the Cut’

Wet n Wild 'It's All In The Cut'

Wet n Wild ‘It’s All In The Cut’ 3 coats & please ignore the piece of fluff near my thumb.

My last post featured an H&M polish and I ranted a little about the variety of bottles they come in. Well it seems to me as though Wet n Wild do the same, it’s as though there’s lots of ranges and they all come in different bottles. Even recent ColorIcon releases are in different bottles to todays ColorIcon post, ‘It’s All in the Cut.’ That being said, I don’t really care what bottle it comes in because it’s so lovely. Plus, it was a swap so it’s even more special.

Love & Beauty ‘Midnight Shimmer’

Love & Beauty 'Midnight Shimmer' swatch

Love & Beauty ‘Midnight Shimmer’ 2 coats over Rimmel ‘Aye Aye Sailor’

Thank goodness for nail mail! Recently I did a ‘Fantasy Fire‘ swap with a few lovlies, including Christine who sent me some Forever21 ‘Love & Beauty’ polishes and a Spoiled polish too. First up is Love & Beauty ‘Midnight Shimmer.’ I’d requested ‘midnight’ but hadn’t realised that there was ‘Midnight Shimmer’ and ‘Midnight Glitter’ – it was the glitter I was looking for but I’m so glad that Christine kindly sent both to make sure, because I adore ‘Midnight Shimmer.’
