Powder Perfect To The Moon and Back Swatch & Review

Hey lovelies!

Today I have a swatch and review of Powder Perfect To The Moon and Back, my first Powder Perfect! This is a Live Love Polish Exclusive Limited Edition. I'll be showing you some stamping over it using a stamping plate from Bornprettystore as well. So let's get right to it!

Powder Perfect To The Moon and Back under indirect light
To The Moon and Back is nude holographic polish with tiny silver flakes. My swatch shows two coats plus Seche Vite fast drying top coat.

I took some photos under direct daylight bulbs to try to show you the holo. It's so pretty that I think my photos don't do this polish justice!

I used the butterfly image from stamping plate BP-X08 from to stamp over this pretty nude polish. I used Salon Perfect Oil Slick (black polish) and a clear stamper as well.

I loved this polish. Indoors it looks like a normal nude polish but in the sun you can see the gorgeous holo and silver flakes! Formula was great. Self levels very well after the second coat, dries fairly quickly and it smoothes out with top coat. I'll sure be getting some more Powder Perfect polish in the future!

Powder Perfect polish is handmade in Australia and cruelty free.

Waterfall Nails

Waterfall nails for #twinsietuesdaynailart hosted by @99probsbutmynailsaint1 I've done the technique called waterfall before but I wanted to do something different this time. 

I looked up some waterfall wallpapers and paintings and found one I really liked.


It looks gorgeous! But there was no way my nails would come out like that so I changed up some of the colors and went with a sort of a painted look.

I started out with an off white base. I used two coats of OPI I Cannoli Wear OPI no top coat.

Then I took out a lot of blue, green, white and purple polish along with some acrylic paint, some latex free makeup wedges and my brushes. 

I outlined where the waterfall would start and end and went off from there.

Here is the final result. The pose is super awkward for me but other than that I think it came out ok. What do you think?
