So, here I am, in the midst of all this end of year craziness, counting votes, writing posts, and one of my favourite polish makers says "Can I send you my new collection?"
Well, considering that brand is Powder Perfect the answer was YES YES YES before I had even worked out the time deficit consequences lol. So here, today, you have half the collection. Yes, just half, with the other half as soon as I can manage it!
For those of you who have never heard of this brand before, Jacinta creates amazingly intense colours and finishes which remind me of decadence, victoriana and old worldliness. Nothing she makes is ordinary. Her Mysterium Magnum collection has 6 polishes in it, and launches TODAY December 15th.
First up we have Leviathan, named after the gigantic sea monster who inhabits the deepest abysses of the ocean. This is a navy holographic polish flecked with small glitters, and flakies.
As you might be able to tell already, my camera didn't know WHAT to make of this lol. There is so much going on. There is holo, there are flakies, there is green - it's an amazing storm-tossed sea, with remarkable depth and drama.
I did find the formula on this one a little thick, so you'll want to be careful where those larger glitters land.
Melusina is similar in it's oceanic heritage, with a myriad of colours and sizes of glitter suspended in a deep aqua base.
Melusina herself was a water nymph; half woman, half fish, but able to take human form. She met a mortal man and made him promise to let her bath in private as a condition of their marriage. He broke his promise and saw that she was a mermaid as she bathed. Once she discovered his treachery she fled and was never seen in human form again. She lives on in the whispers over the water, protecting her descendants.
Lol, I LOVE these stories! This polish doesn't shine as much in these photos as it did in real life. The photos make it look like I forgot top coat, which I didn't. There is a lovely translucency to this polish that you'll just need to trust me on.
And finally, me and my camera agree about the beauty of the 3rd polish - Faerie. This is a fabulous pink micro-glitter-bomb.
The sparkle on this polish was INCREDIBLE! It was super glittery, super twinkly - just perfect for this time of year!
You can buy these polishes from today at Powder Perfect HERE, along with 3 other beauties which I will try and get up as soon as possible! Especially the purple!!! These polishes were sent to me for an honest review.
