Princess Nail Lacquer Gods & Goddess Collection

PR Sample

It's not very often that I put out 2 blog posts in a day, especially in a month that by all other accounts, has been drier than the Sahara (as far as my blog is concerned).


However Ashleigh from Princess Nail Lacquer is releasing a few new collections tomorrow and I wanted to show you all the swatches of both the collections I was lucky enough to get. If you haven't seen my swatches of the Rainbow Duo, then pop over there once you've read this post.



The Gods and Goddess collection features 4 holo and flakie filled polishes all named after the greats from ancient Greek mythology. At first glance these all looked very similar in the bottle and although the polishes are subtly different when on the nail, these are some of the beautiful and complex polishes I have ever had to swatch, so forgive me for not capturing all the nuances perfectly.

Zeus
According to the legends, Zeus is the sky and thunder God and ruler of Mount Olympus. This polish has a strong linear holographic base with a soft blue shimmer running throughout it and tiny green to rose duochrome flakies. I needed 2 coats for full coverage and no topcoat.

Hera
The goddess of women and marriage, Hera is married to her brother Zeus and is therefore the Queen of Mount Olympus. This polish also has a strong linear holographic base with a powerful red shimmer running through it. There are also pink to green to gold multichrome flakies. I needed 2 coats for full coverage.






And with flash.

Aphrodite
The Goddess of love, beauty pleasure and procreation, Aphrodite was known as the most beautiful of all the Greek Gods/Goddesses. Again it has a strong linear holographic base with a gold to pink shimmer running through it. This is very subtle on the nail and is so difficult to capture on camera. There are green to purple duochrome flakies in this, giving it a darker finish to the others in this collection, however like the rest, it needed only 2 coats.

Poseidon
Many know Poseidon as the God of the seas and water, however he is also God of earthquakes, floods, droughts and horses. This polish like the other 3 in this collection has a strong linear holographic base and a bright green shimmer running throughout it. The flakies shift from lime to green enhancing the shimmer beautifully. Again it was perfect in 2 coats.






With flash.


This collection is truly stunning and I know that many of you out there will be thinking the same. These type of polishes are so unusual from a UK indie and the combination of holo, shimmer and flakies is perfection. My favourites are Hera and Poseidon.


Like the Rainbow Duo, this collection and a couple of others are launching tomorrow on Princess Nail Lacquer's website. The Gods and Goddess collection is priced at £26 for the set. Don't forget to use my discount code for 15% off - POLISHLIST15.

Let me know your thoughts on these polishes, what your fave is and if you're a fan of these complex holo style finishes?

  2. Wow, those are so gorgeous! I love the little flakies combined with the holo! I think my favorite has to be Hera, with the little touch of something purple.
