NEW POLISH RELEASESPOWDER PERFECT
Powder Perfect have given us a sneaky early media release about their new collection:
Plumb the depths of human emotion with our new Mel•an•cho•li•a Collection. Melancholia aims to capture the darker side of the human experience; the battles that rage silently within ourselves.
This collection features 6 polishes in total- 3 glitter based polishes, and 3 different types of holographic polish. With each shade representing a different facet of the human struggle, the polishes vary wildly in vibrancy and finish. This in an effort to capture the emotions that we rarely talk about. Taboo subjects of despair, grief and obsession. On sale from 10th of June.
Glitter Polishes RRP $10 AUD
Holographic Polishes RRP $12 AUD
Buy the collection for $58
Four colour shifting and six multi-chrome extremely limited edition shades at two very small restocks at 9am & 6pm on Thursday June 5th for Australian buyers only from www.glampolish.com.au with a strict limit of one of each shade per customer. (As at the time of publishing this, there were still three of the multi-chrome polishes available in AU).
There will be a separate small restock for USA customers on Tuesday June 10th at 7pm USA Eastern Standard time.
New from Petal Polish:
Petal Polish has a new collection out (as of Monday this week). Three colours - Bougainvillea, Hibiscus, and African Tulip - form the first part of a series of polishes called 'The Aspley Collection'. The collection takes it's name from my suburb, and the polishes are inspired by the same.
