The Magical Wonders Collection by Miss Priss Polish

The Miss Priss July collection is here! This month we dive into the world of witches and magical powers. I was inspired by watching season three of American Horror Story on Netflix. Each season of American Horror Story has a different story line. Season three is Coven, and is about a group of young witches discovering their powers and fighting for their surviving culture.  I never really thought about the specific powers of witches so as I watched the season it was fascinating to find out about the different magical powers. I did some additional research and thought that it would make a really awesome theme for a new polish collection!

Telekinesis - The ability to manipulate objects with the power of the mind. This is a blue polish with a blue-purple shifting shimmer.

Vitalum Vitalis - The balancing of the scales between one life force and another. With this power witches can transfer their own life force to the dead, bringing another back from the brink of death. This power can also drain life from another.  This is a black based polish, but it has a really strong blue-purple shifting shimmer.

Descensum - Descent into the afterlife, projecting themselves into their own hell. The hard part is bring one's self back to the world of the living. This is a pearly white polish with a subtle blue shifting shimmer.

For each of my swatches I used two coats and no top coat. Unfortunately, it was difficult to capture the colour shift of each polish, but they are super pretty!

This collection is now available in my Etsy shop.
