Grace-Full Nail Polish and Powder Perfection Inklings Collaboration Collection - Swatches & Review

Wednesday, 27 May 2015


Grace-Full Nail Polish and Powder Perfect have joined together and have created the Inklings Collection which is inspired by a literary mythical universe by J. R. R. Tolkein.  I am not actually familiar with the works of J. R. R. Tolkein but I do know pretty polishes, and this collection is full of them.  There is eight polishes in total (four from each creator) so let's just get straight into them.

First up are the polishes from Grace-Full Nail Polish.

Lights In The Party Tree is described as a bright green microglitter ful of holographic glitters with a green jelly base.  There are pink, purple and blue microglitters throughout to represent the hobbit hold doors and the flowers covering the hills.  The formula is really easy to use and only requires two coats to be opaque.  I also used two coats of top coat to give it a perfectly smooth finish.

Mount Fang is described as a deep charcoal linear holo which shifts from red to gold.  The red represents the evil within the tower from Saruman's relationship Sauron.  The gold represents the power of The One Ring.  The formula is fantastic and easy to use.  I used two coats for my swatches.

Sunlight And Starlight is described as a linear holo that shifts between blue and green and is based on the elven kingdom Lothlorien.  The formula of this one is easy to use and required three coats to be opaque.

Where The Gods Dwell is described as a linear holo that shifts from a periwinkly blue to violet and has sparks of pink and blue.  This polish is based on the place Valinor.  The formula is fantastic and requires two coats to be opaque.

And now the polishes created by Powder Perfect.

Horse-Lords is described as a maroon jelly glitter with accents of gold and bronze, representing the armour of the Rohirrim.  The formula is great, it's easy to use and has a great glitter payoff.  I used two coats for my swatch.

King Of Carven Stone is described as a holographic polish with shadows of deep teal and seams of ultra-chrome green and gold flakies.  This multi-faceted polish was inspired by the splendour of Erebor, the dwarf kingdom within the Lonely Mountain.  The formula is fantastic and close to being a one coater.  I used two coats for my swatch.

Sacred Light is described as a shimmering grey crelly with holographic particles, glitters and flakies.  This polish represents the scared starlight that is precious to the elves of the Woodland Realm.  Now it is recommended that you use three thin coats with adequate dry time.  I didn't actually know this at the time of swatching, and am happy to report that in two coats the polish was opaque.  I didn't use overly thick coats either and had no issues with the dry time.  Now this polish is actually a lot prettier in real life than my pics.  Sacred Light is a little camera shy.

The Citadel is described as a rich navy holographic polish representing the flag of Gondor.  The formula is fantastic and nearly is a one coater.  I used two coats for my swatch.

How pretty is this entirely collection?  I am in love.  My favorites in the collection are (and in no particular order either) Horse-Lords and The Citadel by Powder Perfect and Where The Gods Dwell and Mount Fang by Grace-Full Nail Polish.  Which of the polishes in this collection are you loving?

These polishes are available for pre-sale starting on Friday 29th and will be available from Grace-Full Nail Polish and Powder Perfect.
