Heather's Hues Perfect Polish Pack Swatch and Review

Greetings and Nailutations,

*Press Sample*
Today I'm sharing Perfect Polish Packs, which are a joint package of polish and stencils from Heather's Hues and Nails Redesigned.  I had fun trying to think of manis to create with the stencils and Heather's Hues polish complimented the designs so well.  The theme of this Perfect Polish Pack is Caribbean Island.

Now lets get to some swatches!

First up in Tropical Waters, a royal blue jelly with blue, teal, purple and silver micro glitter and flakes.  This polish lights up a room in the right light and adding a matte top coat gives it additional dimension.  Formula was easy to apply.  Photos show 2 coats with shiny top coat (1st, 2nd, 3rd photos) and matte top coat (4th photo).

Next is Island In The Sun, a perfect shimmery nude-beige.  Island In The Sun contains gold micro glitter and is on the sheer side.  Perfect neutral work appropriate polish for those that need to look on the professional side.  To obtain total opacity 3 coats would be needed.  Photos show 2 coats over a nude colored base with shiny top coat.

Sunset Over The Sea is next from the Perfect Polish Packs.  It is a glitter jelly in a very lightly tinted blue base.  Sunset Over The Sea contains blue hexes in several sizes, purple hexes, orange hexes and magenta circles - all the colors you would see in an island sunset.  Photos show 2 coats over a nude base coat with shiny top coat.

The last polish is Paradise Pink, a fuchsia jelly with gold micro flakes.  Gorgeous color and great formula to work with.  Please be aware that this polish highly pigmented and will need at least 2 base coats to prevent staining.  Photos show 2 coats over a nude base with shiny top coat (1st and 2nd photo) and matte top coat (3rd photo).

The other part of the Perfect Polish Pack are the stencils from Nails Redesigned.  I did a mani with each set of stencils.

First mani is using the tropical flower vinyl stencil.  I used Island In The Sun as the base, applied a fast dry top coat (Seche Vite) and waited 10 minutes, then applied the stencil.  I painted Tropical Waters over the stencil and then gently pulled it up.  I then added a drop of Paradise Pink to the center of the flowers and used a black striper to add little dots.  Stencil was easy to use, and very adhesive.

Next I used the palm tree stencils and created an island scene.  Base is Tropical Waters, and then I painted on Skinny Dipping (from the On The Way To Cape May Collection of Heather's Hues) and applied a fast dry top coat (Seche Vite).  After 10 minutes, I applied the palm tree stencil and used white to paint the trees and then pulled away the stencil.  I painted the tree trunks with Island In The Sun and the greenery is Beach Grass (from the On The Way To Cape May Collection of Heather's Hues).

The wave stripes were next and I used Island In The Sun as a base, applied a fast dry top coat (Seche Vite) and then applied the wave stripes and painted Tropical Waters.  I love that the vinyls were so adhesive that it picked up all the details of the wave.

The last vinyls are bursts in 2 different styles.  I decided to create a fun french mani with one set using Paradise Pink and Tropical Waters.

Shiny Top Coat: Gem Glam Top Coat from
Nude Base Coat: Butter London

Loves:  The combination of polish and vinyls is always a great idea and I'm so happy to see Heather and Sara work together on this!  The theme is fun and allows for so much creativity for those who pick up a Perfect Polish Pack.  The polishes, as always, are great quality from Heather and really pretty (I love her jellies!).  For the stencils/vinyls, I was really impressed.  They have more adhesiveness than other vinyls I have tried.  This is great because this means when you stick the stencil or vinyl to your nail, it sticks.  All the details are picked up in the stencil and there is no bleeding under it (which happens on occasion with other vinyls I have tried).  It adheres firmly to the corners and edges of your nail, which is always a trouble area with other vinyls.

Wishes:  I wouldn't change anything with this polish pack - they are fun and a great deal!  I do wish I had tried Nails Redesigned earlier!
