‘A Pretty Perfect Package’ is a sampler pack put together by two relatively new Aussie indie brands – Powder Perfect Polish and Pretty Pots Polish. This limited edition pack features 2 polishes from each brand (4 in total), and is a great way to try offerings from both brands in one easy order, while learning about the creators at the same time.
Pretty Pots Rockstar Rebel is a pale pink crelly with black, grey, purple, lavender, white and neon pink hexes, and neon pink stars. It’s fun and girly, but requires a bit of fishing to get the stars out and dabbing for even application. It’s also quite sheer, so this is 3 carefully applied coats with top coat.
Pretty Pots Paquita has a blackened maroon base filled with fuschia, pink, red and silver microglitters, inspired by the Paquita ballet. This is my favourite polish from this sampler pack. Application was smooth, requiring only 2 coats for opacity, and it’s sophisticated and vampy. With top coat, the depth is beautiful.
Powder Perfect Pretending I’m a Mermaid is another microglitter polish, this time consisting of blue, teal and silver glitter in a blue jelly base. The glitter coverage in this is pretty dense, so you might even be able to get away with 1 coat if you apply carefully. I used 2 here. It also dries matte, so top coat is essential.
And finally, Powder Perfect Midnight Planning is another one of those Cosmic Forces-esque polishes, with a deep purple jelly base and large round holo glitters that invoke images of space and galaxies. Holy cow, this one has a tonne of glitter in it. No fishing or dabbing was needed at all, so application was really easy, but it did result in a somewhat lumpy mani that would need quite a lot of top coat to smooth out. This is 2 coats with top coat.
The pack containing all 4 polishes costs just $40 including shipping (Australia only), and is available from Powder Perfect. That represents a $14 saving, which is what shipping would cost if you were to purchase the polishes separately from both stores, so that ends up being a pretty good deal. At this stage the Pretty Perfect Package has a limited run of just 20 boxes, so get in quick if you’re afraid of missing out!
