Powder Perfect Lady Is A Vamp Collection Review

Just a quick little post today, in preparation for a MASSIVE picture post tomorrow! I was lucky enough to be asked to swatch a few of the most recent collection from Australian indie label Powder Perfect, Lady is A Vamp. This collection is a celebration of all things femme and fabulous, and the statement for this collection is something I can really get behind!

"Lady Is A Vamp collection is about celebrating what makes us feel good!!
Does getting dressed up to the nines make you feel good? Fantastic!
Does wearing your favourite old faded jeans and a t-shirt make you feel sexy? Great!
Just bought a pair of bright red stilettos that you plan on wearing out tonight? Rock ‘em!
These colours are inspired by those things that make us feel our most vibrant and alive."

The three polishes I got my hands on are With My High Heels On, a stunning classic red creme, Jealousy, an incredibly bright raspberry holo, and Boudoir, a really interesting cobalt blue creme with gold glitters.

This is two coats of Boudoir, with nothing under it, so you can see the coverage is really great. I'm not 100 per cent sold on the combination of blue and gold, but I'm biased against gold at the best of times.

With my High Heels On is however, entirely perfect. Again, two coats alone for total, smooth coverage, and it's just the PERFECT shade of red.

Indie cremes can be a bit hit and miss - but Powder Perfect's have always been really reliable, and With My High Heels On is no exception. I can see myself reaching for this one a lot!

The third polish in my bundle is a blinding fuchsia called Jealousy - I know it would have been an obvious choice to make this green, but fuchsia still seems like an odd choice to pair with the name. Regardless, if you're a pink lover you're really going to want to pick this up.

The coverage on this is fantastic - there's so much depth to it, but no streakiness after just two coats, which means even in the shade it really shines. 

You can see swatches of the rest of the collection over at The Nail Polish Project, Look What The Bats Dragged In, Polly Polish, Serenity Nails, It's All About The Polish, and of course, at the Powder Perfect website (where you can also browse some of my polish related jewellery).

Powder Perfect have also been kind enough to give me a discount code for all you lovely folks to use!
VAMPYFEMME will give you 15%  off the entire Lady Is A Vamp collection until 10th August, so get on it!
