Powder Perfect Christmas Collection 2014 | Swatches and Chat!

If you follow my blog or Instagram, you may have some idea of how much I love Powder Perfect nail polishes. An independent, Australian brand based in Queensland, and a one woman show to boot, Powder Perfect polishes were my introduction to the world of "Indie" polishes at the beginning of this year. You might say that my collection has grown considerably since then! 

Having quite the collection of polishes ( ridiculous really ), I am always on the look out for shades that are that little bit unique and different. I cannot tell you how many compliments I receive on my manicure when I am wearing Powder Perfect polishes. They are 5 free, handmade and are just really beautiful!

So, you can imagine my excitement when I was offered the opportunity to have a play with the new Christmas 2014 Collection...I have no doubt the neighbours could certainly hear my woop woops!

I have the seven stunning polishes of the collection to share with you today. There is a nice mix of both traditional and non-traditional shades. All of the shade names are based on the quintessential Christmas movie "Home Alone". 

Now, do note, I am not a professional nail blogger. I have no special lighting or light boxes, and as such rely on natural light. I always think it is helpful to look at a lot of different swatches, as everyone's skintone and lighting is different, and there can be subtle differences in how the shade looks. I have also tried to do a couple of mani's with some very basic nail art. Please be kind.



Powder Perfect - Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas.
Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas is described by Powder Perfect as a vibrant red glitterbomb with a smattering of gold holographic particles. Yes, my word she is indeed. I chose to top it, however it also looks very pretty left textured. Two easy coats and beautifully opaque. RRP $10.00 AU.

Powder Perfect - Prettiest Sight To See.
Prettiest Sight To See is described by Powder Perfect as a delicate white crelly with feminine purple, cranberry and metallic glitters. This one reminds me of Christmas nougat! Again, two easy coats. There is no fishing around for glitter in these polishes either, they are packed! This a good one to use more of a dabbing motion to apply, particularly with the second coat. Both of my daughters have asked me to paint their nails with this one. In fact, so have a lot of my friends. Delicate and feminine appeal to all ages! RRP $10.00 AU.

Powder Perfect - Merry Christmas Ya Filthy Animal.
Merry Christmas Ya Filthy Animal is described by Powder Perfect as a juicy, deep red microglitter - a little bit sexy, with flashes of purple to mesmerise you! Again, this is another pretty one to give the top coat a miss and wear textured, but I just loved how juicy she looked with a top coat! I hate to play favourites, but this one really ticked my fancy, and I found it to be really complimentary to my skintone. RRP $10.00 AU.

Powder Perfect - The Stars Are Brightly Shining.
The Stars Are Brightly Shining is described by Powder Perfect as a sparkly silver glitterbomb packed with platinum flakies and soft gold microglitter. A beautiful warm toned silver that I think would look beautiful on all skin tones. You only see the undertone of this polish when you apply it...I was surprised because in the bottle it does look like more of a straight silver. I used two coats in the photo above, and my accent nail is a white base with this beautiful sliver and also the gold from the collection "Christmas In A Tropical Climate". RRP $11.00 AU.

Powder Perfect - Candy Canes And Silver Lanes Aglow
over Sally Hansen Barracuda.
Candy Canes And Silver Lanes Aglow is described by Powder Perfect as a fun, festive glitter topper featuring iridescent glitters along side matte white and red glitters. This polish is truly and honestly just so pretty! Ideally it is to be layered over the other Christmas polishes, but I decided I liked the idea of it over a light blue, and I think it looks gorgeous!( sorry for the claw). See the photograph below to see it layered over a white base, and my apologies for the poor quality, but I was trying to capture the beautiful irridescent glitters...this one is another definite favourite of mine! RRP $10.00 AU

over Sally Hansen White On.

Powder Perfect - Christmas In A Tropical Climate.
Christmas In A Tropical Climate is described by Powder Perfect as a summery tribute to Christmas, a golden polish packed with vibrant gold holographic glitters. Another shade to wear textured if you wish. $5.00 from the sale of each bottle ( including wholesale orders ) will go towards the purchasing of toys for the Kmart Wishing Tree. It is always nice to give back, and apart from purchasing a gorgeous shade, you are contributing to making a little person's Christmas a little bit brighter than it might have been. Love.   RRP $10.00 AU.

Powder Perfect - What Is It With You And Christmas Trees?  Over base of Powder Perfect- Isolde.

What Is It With You And Christmas Trees? is described by Powder Perfect as a green crelly featuring colourful metallic a Christmas tree adorned with cheery metallic baubles. Such a fun polish! I thought it would look cute to have two little Christmas trees on my nails, and I love pink and green together, so out came Isolde, one of my favourite Powder Perfect polishes from their permanent line to layer underneath. They look a little rustic despite my careful use of tape, but I think they still look cute, even if a little imperfect! My children decorate our Christmas tree, and it always looks a little wonky and unbalanced! ( I try hard not to fix it....). RRP $10.00 AU.

You can find the Christmas Collection from Powder Perfect here. As with each collection, there is the opportunity to purchase the whole collection for $65.00. You will find many other brands of polish, and also some previous collections from Powder Perfect. You're welcome!!

Do be quick! I believe some of the shades are starting to sell out!
