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!

Spell Polish ‘Cardinal Sin’ and ‘Wool of Bat’

Spell Polish Cardinal Sin and Wool of Bat

I’d been wanting to try Spell Polish for a while when I finally bit the bullet and bought these two lovely colours (I also have 3 provided as samples that I’ll be showing later but for the sake of transparency, yes I paid for these). Spell is a lovely little boutique range from the U.S. that have really nailed their branding. The site, bottles, labels and packaging all match beautifully, and on top of this each polish comes with a cute little spell card unique to that shade. I’ll try to take photos of the cards soon, but for now I couldn’t get a shot that did them justice! Suffice to say, the whole image of the brand is cohesive and incredibly appealing. Heather, the powerhouse behind the brand is also a delightful woman which just makes it all so much lovelier. So on to the polish…

Swatch & Review: Barry M new core colours

You might think I’ve posted enough Barry M polishes this week. You would be wrong though, because there is no such thing as too much Barry M. Today I have three new additions to the core range on a bit of a colour theme too.

Barry M Winter 2014 Silks

Barry M Autumn/Winter 2014 Silk nail polish on pollypolish.com

Barry M are back with some more silks for winter. The spring silks caught me by surprise a little because I loved them far more than I thought I would. Pastels aren’t really my cup of tea though so I was excited to see more silks for winter, but in some very festive colours.

Swatch & Review: Pretty Serious Brand New Undies

Pretty Serious Brand New Undies Collection nail polish on pollypolish.com

While I might be allowing myself to blog without as much self-imposed pressure, Pretty Serious are one range that I will always make time for – even if that time is a little later than I’d have liked. Following up the beautiful Pinup collection of cremes are these bright and beautiful staple shades from Pretty Serious, the Brand New Undies.

Swatch & Review OPI Nordic ‘Do You Have This Color In Stockholm’ and ‘Valking in a Vinter Vonderland’

OPI Nordic Collection 'Do You Have This Color in Stockholm?' and 'Valking in a Vinter Vonderland' nail polish on pollypolish.com

I love the inspiration behind OPI’s autumn collection. The Nordic polishes all look lovely, and while not necessarily super exciting, they are wonderfully reliable cremes in some rich tones that avoid the stereotypical (though much loved) autumn leaves inspired shades. Two of the purple based colours were my first picks when I saw the collection so I have them to show you today.

El Corazon ‘Magic Attraction’

El Corazon 'Magic Attraction' nail polish on pollypolish.com

This is a new-to-me brand, but then again I have that many untrieds that I have plenty of new-to-me brands sitting in my drawers. This lovely didn’t get as far as my drawers before I tried it on though.
