Powder Perfect - Hardwicke Collection

A beautiful collection inspired by a fictional medieval village named Hardwicke 


I was so happy when Jacinta came to me with this 9 piece collection because I had always heard great things about Powder Perfect but had never owned any of the polishes. 
The entire collection is opaque in 2 coats, the formulas are buttery and smooth, and the polishes are each unique and stunning. I adore this collection and am very impressed with this new-to-me brand. Thanks so much Jacinta for allowing me to swatch this gorgeous collection! <3

I found the inspiration behind this collection so sweet:

I love that the Hardwicke collection has a a shade for everyone and offers holo as a staple in each polish; but that's enough words for now, let's get to the pictures! :D

Shadow of the Mountain: 'a dusty lilac holographic polish with purple-blue shifting micro flakies'






Borders of the Forest: 'a forest green with blue-green micro flakes & a holographic effect'






Sunset in the Valley: 'a berry pink varnish with a holographic flame and red sparks'






Dust and Shadows: 'a dark purple polish with a sparkling holographic flame'






Woodcutter: 'a beige holographic lacquer with flattering warm undertones'






The Village: a strong linear holographic black polish






The Crossroads: 'an earthy holographic polish with bronze flakes and small glitters'






Meet Me in the Glade: 'a rust red lacquer filled with shades of red and gold flakes & holographic shimmer'






Ensorcel: 'a royal purple lacquer with large golden flakes & holographic sparks'


Brighter lighting to capture the flakes

Wow! That was a LOT of pictures! I don't know about you, but when I'm looking at swatches, I love a LOT of pictures - and let's be honest, there was no way I'd be able to pick a favourite!:D

This collection goes on sale May 8th so mark your calenders!


And lastly, before I end this post, I wanted to share with you my thoughts on this cuticle balm that Powder Perfect offers:

I have been using this for about 4 days now and I love it! It smells like birthday cake (yum!!) and I love me a good cuticle balm! I prefer it over cuticle oil but only because I like how it feels compared to oils. The balm melted really quickly when I put my finger into it so I didn't have to swirl around for ages waiting for the balm to turn warm for use. I'm not sure what else I can really say about it, I like it, smells good, and comes in this adorable tin that you can literally carry anywhere. I stick mine into my back pocket sometimes when I'm walking around - it's nice and compact - and it's always in reach when I want to use it. It makes my cuticles nice and soft and supple - win! :)

Ok, that's all I have for today! I hope you enjoyed the pictures and my mini review! :D

Thanks so much for taking time out of your busy day to check out my little corner :) Feel free to leave me comments/suggestions/feedback below.
