Hello everyone. Today we are going to take a look at the beautiful Powder Perfect Egyptology Collection Part 3. This collection, as the name suggests, is inspired by the ancient Egypt. This collection consists of ten holographic polishes with a unique hybrid formula that they call “holo-twist”. Powder Perfect Egyptology formula is described as “fine microglitter polish crossed with a holographic lacquer for a smooth, but sparkly finish”.
The polishes of this beautiful Egyptology collection are absolutely gorgeous and as they promise, they give you a nice smooth finish, but still very sparkly! They have a good variety of colors and really beautiful , consistent formula. I can tell you right at the start that they were easy to apply and the glitter spread out perfectly. I applied all colors over an Indigo base coat and topped it with a layer of Seche Vite top coat. All polishes took three thin coat, that’s a consistency, right?
Saqqara is a large necropolis in ancient Egypt which is home to the famous Djoser pyramid, build in the step style. Archaeologists have extensively debated over the meaning behind the architectural styles of the different pyramids. Saqqara is a sunset orange polish filled with gold & silver ultra-holo glitters in a holographic base.
Heka means magic in ancient Egyptian and also refers to the god of magic. Heka is a deep purple holo-twist with purple & ultra holo glitters. Perfect color for fall. Really loving this one.
Osiris was the god of the afterlife, often portrayed as being mummified, with green skin. Inspired by the eerie green colour of his skin, our holo-twist polish is emerald green with microglitters in various shades. I love this color and the finish is so beautiful!
“Weighing the Heart” refers to the ancient Egyptians’ belief that one’s heart was weighed against the feather of truth in order to gain entry to the afterlife. Weighing the Heart is a pale pink holo-twist with orange flecks and metallic holographic glitters. This shade was super sparkly and my camera freaked out a little. I feel like the pictures don’t do this beautiful nail polish justice, it’s stunning in real life.
Mother Goddess is named after the goddess Isis, whose parents where the sky and the earth. This pale blue polish was inspired by tears Isis cried for her murdered husband, Osiris. In antiquity, these tears were believed to be the cause of the Nile flooding every year.
Ra was inspired by the Ancient Egyptian sun god and is a silver based holo-twist lacquer with a golden hue. Ra is definitely one of my favorites from the Egyptology collection. Stunning, subtle, but very sparkly.
Hathor is a juicy hot pink lacquer designed to represent the very feminine goddess. Hathor has small sparkling microglitters and coral flakies within a holographic base.
Divine Pharaoh – For some time in Egypt’s history, pharaohs were considered gods in their own right. This lavish glittering silver polish has a green reflect, with metallic copper and gold glitters representing pharaoh’s and all their riches. Another absolute favorite of mine, just look at these sparkly particles. I am in love!
Horus, the son of Isis and Osiris was often drawn as a falcon, or with the head of a falcon placed on a man’s body. Horus is a dark maroon varnish with flickering red glitters and holographic particles.
Scarab beetles were revered in ancient Egypt and were often worn as amulets or placed in tombs; engraved with verses from the Book of the Dead. Scarab is a darkened teal polish with shades of blue glitter & a holographic sparkle. Stunning and very unique color in my opinion, absolutely gorgeous.
What are your thoughts on this Powder Perfect Egyptology collection? Did you spot any favorites? My top picks are definitely Divine Pharaoh, Scarab and Heka. I love the colors and the formulas were impeccable. Jacinta has done it once again!
