Today I have two new Powder Perfect polishes to show you. I’ve had them a couple of weeks so I’ve swatched them twice to see if I could get better pictures. During the second round of swatching, I have a little Chihuahua tooth mark on my little finger cuticle (I’m trying to teach him not to but I think his brain is too small). Anyway, this duo is a collaboration with Cako a Pailletes, Powder Perfect’s French stockist. It is strictly limited edition in the Powder Perfect Store but Cako a Pailletes will have a full release. This is a picture heavy post as I want to make sure I have all angles of these polishes captured.

Powder Perfect The World Beneath is inspired by the world hidden beneath our feet. This is a bronzed red duochrome polish with lots of flakies in the mix. I used two thick coats in my swatches and application was really easy despite all the flakies. In the sun, the bronzed red base takes centre stage but in the shade the flakies shine and the strong duochrome shift is visible. I’m not normally a fan of dark polishes or duochromes but this polish is lovely. I also used the new Powder Perfect top coat, Chandelier Shine, over both polishes. The drying time was great and it dried rock hard, just the way I like my top coats. Chandelier Shine does have a strong smell but it doesn’t last long on the nail.

Powder Perfect New Moon Rising is a silver holographic polish with metallic silver and gold flakies. This polish represents the shimmering world above us. It reminds me of the moons rays shimmering over still water. I used two coats to make this opaque and as with The World Beneath, the formula was good. I do recommend using a peel off base coat for both polishes though, as the flakies like to stick to the nail bed on removal. In the sun, New Moon Rising is eye catching with the full holographic effect. In the shade however, the flakies can be seen shimmering away, bringing a whole new dimension to this polish. I really enjoyed wearing this, it was so pretty in all levels of light.

These two polishes will be released in the Powder Perfect shop on Friday the 20th of March at Midday, QLD Time, but be quick as only 5 bottles of each colour will be in the Powder Perfect store. If you miss out, don’t worry, as Cako a Pailletes will be releasing these shades around the same time. If you want sneak peaks of future Powder Perfect releases then you can join the fan group on facebook – Powder Perfect Coterie.

Come back tomorrow for my attempts at nail art using these two polishes. Will you be picking up either of these lovely polishes?
