Exciting times today! I've got three special shades I teased on Instagram recently that I've been aching to share since they landed on my doorstep - Powder Perfect's three gorgeous creations for Hella Holo Customs! Plenty of pictures after the jump :D
Firstly, for those who aren't familiar - Hella Holo Customs is a Facebook group dedicated to bringing lovers of holographic nail polish special limited edition polish by the best boutique polish brands across the world. This month Powder Perfect and Girly Bits have created three unique shades available only to members of HHC - so if you like what's ahead, make sure you go join them on Facebook!
Rich and juicy blackberry holo with glowing fuchsia and violet flakes. Deliciously deep and rich like velvet it's sure to satisfy lovers of vampy shades and holos with a twist. I adore the added flakes, the violet and pink sparks had me swooning from the first coat.
The formula is as you would expect from Powder Perfect - smooth, easy application and wonderful opacity. I used three thin coats for swatches which gave me the vamp-fest you see here, you may only need two if you do thicker coats. It dried beautifully smooth and I finished it off with a coat of Lightning Lady.
An explosion of aquatic colour with a multitude of multichrome flakes set against a holo backdrop. I never knew just how badly I needed this exact polish until I got it on my nails. It's like a rainbow shattered over the ocean and it's spectacular! My camera utterly panicked at the sight of this polish but to be honest, so did my eyes. There's so much going on that it's hard to deconstruct what you're seeing beyond rainbows of joy.
The formula was surprisingly smooth considering how much is packed in there, and it was easy to apply with no balding or dragging. I was concerned after the first coat that it might be a little sheer but by the third coat it was looking sensational. One coat of Lightning Lady to finish off and I was good to go! I've been wearing this for five days now on my right hand and only have slight signs of tip wear (ignoring the chip from smashing my finger in the car door) which is a minor miracle for my chip prone nails.
A dusky seafoam green holo with iridescent glitter and holographic silver micro glitter. I'm almost certain that I loved this from the moment I saw it, what with being a total nerd for anything green. It's soft and feminine with an ethereal glow from the iridescent glitters, utterly swoonworthy.
I'm sure I barely need to comment on formula at this point, but I'll reiterate - fab formula, beautiful to apply and silky smooth. Swatches show three thin coats, beautiful and opaque. Topped with Lightning Lady for protection and shine.
All three shades are available now, but you must join Hella Holo Customs on Facebook to order! Orders will be open until September 1st, so you have a little time to order and I promise you do not want to miss out!
