Powder Perfect ~ Dust & Shadows



Powder Perfect ~ Dust & Shadows
Dark purple strong linear holo

I don’t think I ever get tired of purples. And I know for sure that I don’t get tired of holos, and especially holos with a strong effect. I loved it the moment I laid eyes on it.

The formula is very good. In my opinion, Powder Perfect should get more love in blog land because they make really good polishes. I love all the ones I’ve got! I used two easy and fast drying coats for full opacity.

The sun was playing hidey go seek, so the two first pictures here are taken with flash:


Look at those rainbows. I’m swooning over here!!


This picture is taken in the shade. It shows the true colour of the polish and also reveals that the rainbows refuse to not shine! I love that.


Then the sun came out to play, yay! I always love when I get sunshine pictures of my holos.


I added glitter, because holo and glitter together is almost always a winner in my book. I used Color Club’s “Something New”, which is a clear base packed with white glitter and white and baby blue hexagons. I sealed her up with a layer of topcoat and here’s my final mani with flash:


Here are the two polishes:


Verdict:
If you like dark purple polishes, then you should consider including Dust & Shadows in your stash. If you also love strong holos, then it’s definitely a winner. The quality of the polish is excellent and the rainbows in the bottle are just mesmerizing!


Number of coats: 2
Drying time: Really good
Finish: Strong linear holo
Overall impression: Deep vampy colour, strong and pretty rainbows. I like it.
Buy again: Yes

  5. Oh so swoonworthy! What a gorgeous purple! And what a lovely glitter. They go perfectly together, I like the fact that you just used it at the base to contrast but not cover the purple holo. Very clever.

    1. Thank you! I didn't want to cover up the pretty rainbows too much, and on the other hand I wanted a lighter colour to go with it :)
