Powder Perfect Bermuda Triangle Collection Swatches and Review

I have the beautiful, summery Powder Perfect Bermuda Triangle Collection to show you today. This is a trio of intensely pigmented cremes that I think can be considered to fall in the "bleached neons" category. Let's have a look!

Bermuda is a light sea green, opaque in two thin coats. It dries quickly to a high shine and has a beautiful formula.

Florida is a pastel neon coral. This has a similar, quick-dry formula, but required three very thin coats for me due to my pigmented nail beds. It would be a two-coater for most people.

Puerto Rico is a pastel neon magenta-purple, shown here in two thin coats. This also has a nice, quick dry formula, and the natural finish is satin, but is worn here with top coat.

I also wanted to see if these water marbled and they do, very beautifully! Here I did the marble as decals since I initially wanted to just test them, but could not let the lovely polish swirls go to waste!

I also tried Powder Perfect's new Lightning Lady Top Coat with these polishes. It is a quick dry top coat that doesn't shrink. I got great wear from it. It did leave a few brush strokes that you can see in the macro, but those are not visible to the naked eye. I had also been testing the Powder Perfect Chandelier Shine, which I bought previously, for the last month. I would say the Chandelier Shine is a bit slower to dry, but when it does it is exceptionally hard. It also a bit of a minty scent to it! It tends to be a bit more aggressive dissolving the polish layer beneath, so I would stick with the Lightning Lady Top Coat for cremes, and the Chandelier Shine for shimmers and holos, as well as long-wear situations, though both have good longevity. Hope you enjoyed seeing these - any favorites? Are you buying some bright cremes or water marbling polishes this summer?
