Powder Perfect “Egyptology part III” swatches and review

Hi there everyone!  I’ve got a large, colorful, and glitter filled post for you all today!  Powder Perfect is releasing 10 beautiful shades of polish inspired by Egypt Mythology.  Be sure to stay tuned to the end for some fun nail art that I done with these gorgeous polishes.  I do also want to mention that when these polishes dry down, they do have a gritty texture.  Once you put on top coat, that smooths everything out.

Notes from the maker: “This collection features a unique hybrid holo formula that we call holo-twist!  Enjoy a fine microglitter polish crossed with a holographic lacquer for a smooth, but sparkly finish!  Each shade can be purchased individually for $13 AUD/USD or as a collection, saving 10%.”

On to the first shade, which is called “Ra.”  “Ra” was inspired by the Ancient Egyptian sun god and is a silver based holo-twist lacquer with a golden hue.”  Such a pretty golden polish!  I used three coats for opacity and quick dry top coat.

Next up we have “Mother Goddess.”  “Mother Goddess” is named after the goddess Isis, whose parents were the sky and the earth.  This pale blue polish was inspired by tears Isis cried for her murdered husband, Osiris.  In antiquity, these tears were believed to be the cause of the Nile flooding every year.  This is such a gorgeous blue color, and I think it would flatter any skintone!  I used two coats for this picture.

“Osiris” was the god of the afterlife, often being portrayed as being mummified, with green skin.  Inspired by the eerie green color of his skin, our holo-twist polish is emerald green with microglitters in various shades.  I just love this shade of green, it’s so perfect!  I used two coats for opacity.

“Hathor” is a juicy hot pink lacquer designed to represent the very feminine goddess.  “Hathor” has small sparkling microglitters and coral flakies within a holographic base.  I’m a sucker for pinks and this one is everything!  I used two coats to reach opacity.

“Horus” the son of Isis and Osiris was often drawn as a falcon, or with the head of a falcon placed on a mans body.  “Horus” is a dark maroon varnish with flickering red glitters and holographic particles.”  Another beauty in this collection.  I used two coats for opacity.

“Divine Pharaoh”- For some time in Egypt’s history Pharaoh’s were considered gods in their own right.  This lavish glittering silver polish has a green reflect, with metallic copper and gold glitters representing pharaoh’s and all their riches.  I used 3 thick coats for opacity.

“Heka” means magic in ancient Egyptian and also refers to the god of magic.  “Heka” is a deep purple holo-twist with purple and ultra holo glitters.  This polish is Everything!  I love it so much!  I used two coats for this stunner.

“Scarab” beetles were revered in ancient Egypt and were often wore as amulets or placed tombs; engraved with verses from the Book of the Dead.  Scarab is a darkened teal polish with shades of blue glitter and a holographic sparkle.  I used two easy coats for this gorgeous polish.

Powder_Perfect_Scarab_2“Saqqara” is a large necropolis in ancient Egypt which is home to the famous Djoser pyramid, build in the step style.  Archaeologists have extensively debated over the meaning behind the architectural styles of the different pyramids. “Saqqara” is a sunset orange polish filled with gold and silver ultra-holo glitters in a holographic base.  I used 2 coats and quick dry top coat to to give this polish a glossy shine.

“Weighing the Heart” refers to the ancient Egyptians belief that one’s heart was weighed against the feather of truth in order to gain entry to the afterlife.  “Weighing the Heart” is a pale pink holo-twist with orange flecks and metallic holographic glitters.  I used two easy coats, and then topped with Seche Vite quick dry top coat.

For this nail art I used a base of Divine Pharaoh, and then done a gradient over snake vinyls with Mother Goddess and Horus.

For this manicure I used Saqqara as a base, and then painted on flowers and dots with acrylic paints.Powder_Perfect_Nailart_02For this nail art, I started with a black base.  I then sponged on a random white polish in the centers and toward the edges with a makeup sponge that way the colors I chose would pop.  I first sponged on Horus on the white and blended it toward the black and white, and then I dabbed Hathor on top of that and blended it into the black and white.  Once those were dry I sponged Mother Goddess over top of the edges and faded it into Hathor and Horus.  For the stamping I used Bundle Monster BM-S306 Festival stamping plate and Born Pretty Store White stamping polish.

Let me just say this collection is Amazing!  All of the polishes are unique in their own ways.  My picks out of them all would be Heka, Osiris, and Weighing the Heart.  This collection releases August 26th for $13 a bottle AUD/USD or $117 for the whole set which is a savings of 10%.  Be sure to check out their store and their Facebook page to stay up to date on upcoming collections.  Thank you all so much for your time and I’ll talk to you all soon!
