I couldn’t believe my eyes when I was standing in front of the p2 display at my local drugstore this morning in front of their Black Deluxe collection. The gorgeous nail polishes 010 Black Pearl, 020 Blue Pearl and 030 Red Pearl were looking at me and wanted to come home with me. Just by looking at the bottles I knew Black Deluxe would surely become my favorite p2 collection in 2011 and after I swatched them this prediction became true.

Black Pearl was love at first sight. It was the first bottle I took at closer look at from the Black Deluxe display and I instantly knew I had to buy all of it. All were only three because the p2 displays for their limited editions are small but I am still glad I have at least two backups.

The base of Black Pearl is a very dark anthracite jelly and it is full of stunning duochrome glass flecks which color shift from a teal-ish blue to blue to purple and in some lighting even magenta. Breathtaking. Black Pearl is one of my favorite nail polishes in 2011.

020 Blue Pearl

Blue Pearl is stunning as well. It is so bright on the nails that it is glowing. The bright royal blue jelly base is full of blue and purple glass flecks but the blue flecks are more prominent. I never expected such a nail polish from p2 but I am thankful that they released such a gorgeous nail polish.
030 Red Pearl

Next to Black Pearl and Blue Pearl Red Pearl is almost pushed into the background but it is not to be underestimated. The red and gold glass flecks in Red Pearl are less strong on the nails than the glass flecks in Black Pearl and Blue Pearl but beautiful nontheless. The red creme base almost has a tiny bit of an auburn undertone.
POST FAQ
Availability p2 Black Deluxe nail polishes
You can buy the p2 Black Deluxe nail polishes exclusively at dm drugstores and at Budni stores in Germany. I don’t know if they are available in other European countries. :( The p2 Black Deluxe nail polishes retail for 1,95 Euro each. They are limited edition.
Coats used
010 Black Pearl : three (would have been opaque with two medium coats)
020 Blue Pearl: two
030 Red Pearl: two
The p2 Black Deluxe nail polishes contain 11 ml.

The Black Deluxe collection definitely surprised me because of the look of its nail polishes. Seeing such gorgeous glass flecks surprised me and I am beyond happy p2 made and released them.
The formula of all three Black Deluxe nail polishes was great. Only Black Pearl needed three coats for the pictures but on the nails two thicker coats would have been enough. Red Pearl and Blue Pearl even could be one coaters if you apply a thicker coat.

p2 you did you did a fab job with the Black Deluxe nail polishes! My only point of criticism are the small displays and therefore little stock of products in p2’s limited edition displays. Three of each nail polish sadly aren’t enough especially with such a great collection of nail polishes. Considering the size of the entire p2 display at drugstores the limited edition displays probably can’t be changed though.

If p2 is available at your drugstore have you picked something up from the Black Deluxe collection?

Thanks for looking and have a great weekend! ♥

  1. Oh, Black Pearl looks so beautiful! I seem to always be hunting for the perfect black with colored shimmer polishes and Black Pearl is one of the best I’ve seen. Too bad I can’t buy it! I command those of you who can to run out and get it and enjoy it on my behalf!

    • They look truly stunning, right Rebecca? :) I am so glad I went to the drugstore today because first I wanted to go straight home after grocery shopping. 😀 Next weekend they probably would have been sold out.
