Good morning and happy Sunday! Today I have some gorgeous sparkly shades to share with you from the Powder Perfect The Upper Kingdom Collection that I received from Color4Nails to show you! I also have the Powder Perfect Anniversary Trio I’ll be sharing with you all a bit later today!
The Upper Kingdom Collection consists of 5 beautiful microglitter filled shades. Here is Powder Perfect’s description of the inspiration for the collection:
Ancient Egypt was a land divided in two. Two kingdoms, with two Pharaohs. The Upper Kingdom stretched from the first cataract of the Nile, all through the Nile Valley until it met with the Lower Kingdom of Egypt; sprawling all the way to the Mediterranean Sea.

I’m absolutely in love with this sparkling collection. I had no application issue and photos cannot even begin to show off how stunning these really are. Coverage was beautiful – even at just 2-3 coats and I used Girly Bits Glitter Glaze to smooth over the microglitters.
