Pahlish Buccaneers and Buried Gold Nail Polish collection swatches + review

Purchased by Me buttonIt’s a snowy Wednesday morning here, and I’m wondering where spring went! Yesterday – no joke – it was 80 degrees, and today I have snow on the ground and more falling. Oh Montana, you so crazy! I’m so glad I was excited about the Pahlish Buccaneers and Buried Gold nail polish collection that I swatched it yesterday to show you today. 🙂

Pahlish Buccaneers and Buried Gold nail polish collection | Be Happy And Buy Polish

All photos shown with either Wet n Wild matte top coat, Wet n Wild shiny top coat, or both.

Pahlish Billy Bones matte | Be Happy And Buy Polish

First up is Billy Bones, described as a “neutral tan with a mix of soft violet-blue shimmer and ultra chrome flakes.” No problems with formula here, this is 2 coats. Unfortunately, I don’t really like how it looks on my skin tone, but that’s just the way it goes sometimes.

Pahlish Tropical Island Treasure matte | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Next is Tropical Island Treasure, a “bright aqua cream with tiny bronze flakes.”

I found this not to be too bright, but I sure do love how it looks! My favorite of the collection. The formula on this was a little bubbly, but nothing that can’t be smoothed out. This is 2 coats.

Pahlish Sitting in the Apple Barrel matte | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Sitting in the Apple Barrel is next, and it is described as a “intense neon raspberry jelly with a mix of iridescent orange glitters and matte neon yellow glitters.”

Unfortunately, I couldn’t get a good mix of glitters on my nails, which I’m totally bummed about! (Yes, I did all the tricks.) If you look in the bottle shots above, you can see how pretty the iridescent glitters look. This is 3 coats. Also: this *might* be a possible stainer, I didn’t have any on my nails in the short time I had it on, but when I was taking it off, my skin seemed a bit more red than usual. Just a note of caution!

Pahlish Sailing the Hispaniola | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Sailing the Hispaniola is a “rich ocean blue with a soft linear holographic finish.”

Seriously, what a gorgeous polish! The holo finish isn’t too prevalent, but I’m comforted by the beautiful blue. LOL! This is 2 coats.

Pahlish Cape Coast Castle matte | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Last is my second favorite of the collection: Cape Coast Castle, a “deep turquoise jelly with a mix of holographic violet glitters and green sparks.”

Even though it has teeny bar glitter in this polish, I don’t even mind them because: 1. They’re small 2. They actually fit with the polish and don’t overwhelm it. This is 3 coats. Also: it’s a bit stinky but I think that’s because of the pigment used. It really isn’t bad, but I did want to let you know.

This collection is available right now at Pahlish.com through the end of April (I believe) for $50 or each polish is available individually for $11. My picks are definitely Tropical Island Treasure, Cape Coast Castle, and Sailing the Hispaniola (in that order). What’s your favorite?

Well, how’s the weather been in your neck of the woods lately? Are you staying warm (or alternatively, cool)? Holler at me in the comments!

  1. I’m so glad I picked up Sailing the Hispaniola because it’s totally divine!! As far as weather, it’s stupid hot where I am, but I live in the desert 😛

  2. Sitting in the Apple Barrel looks so juicy! I picked up Billy Bones and Tropical Island Treasure. I’m wearing Billy Bones now, and I think I’ve got the same issue with it as you – I don’t think it’s going with my skin very well. But it’ll be nice under glitters and for pirate map nail art 🙂

  3. SNOW!?! Boooooooooo!!! Mother Nature is smoking crack for sure!! Thank goodness the weather here has been pretty nice and consistent, the only time it changed a bit is when rain brought in a cold front.

    I LOVE this collection and still need to pick it up!! I just love your swatches of these, especially Tropical Island Treasure with matte top coat!!
