Pahlish Happy Holo-ween II collection and comparisons

Purchased by Me buttonGood morning all! I’m so excited to show you today’s post because 1 – it’s Pahlish. You should know by now my love affair of all things Pahlish; 2 – it’s a follow up of last year’s Happy Holo-ween nail polish collection; 3 – I’m showing off my new lighting set-up! For right now, new photos will be intermingling with old photos, but I hope by December, all new posts will have photos with the new lighting set up. Lots of photos to show you, so let’s get to it. 🙂

Cinnamon Twist is a burnt red-pink nail polish with red shimmer. This is 2 coats plus top coat.

I really love the fall vibe to this, it reminds me of falling red leaves. Formula on this was great, first coat a bit sheer, second coat finished off perfect.

If you’re wondering how CT compares to last year’s Caramel Apple Orchard, here you go! This is 2 coats of CT and 2 coats of CAO.

Next is Sour Caramel Apple, a green holographic nail polish with a mix of green & gold flakes. And yes, this is the perfect shade to the caramel apple suckers. This is 3 coats plus top coat.

Formula on this was a bit thick, and I needed 3 coats to level it out.

Pahlish Sour Caramel Apple comparison Trick or Mint | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Here is SCC compared to last year’s Trick or Mint (3 coats plus top coat). As you can see, ToM is much lighter and more sheer.

Now we have Cotton Candy Creature, a red-tone based purple polish with pink and purple flakes. This is 2 coats plus top coat.

I think with the reddish tone to this makes it great for fall weather. Formula was good, sheer on the first coat, leveled off nicely on the second coat.

Pahlish Cotton Candy Creature comparison to Pop Rock Panic | Be Happy And Buy Polish

I compared this to last year’s Pop Rock Panic (3 coats plus top coat), but they are nothing alike.

Pahlish Marshmallow Pumpkin | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Next is Marshmallow Pumpkin, a bright orange holographic nail polish with peach and pink flakes. This is 3 coats plus top coat.

When I first received this, I was really unsure that I’d like it. I’m still on the fence but it is a pretty polish! Formula was a bit thick and needed a third coat to level out.

Pahlish Black Licorice Bats | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Last is Black Licorice Bats, described as “a soft gray holographic with a mix of pink and purple flakes.” Personally, I see this as a blackened purple myself. This is 3 coats plus top coat.

I really adore this color – just walks the line between edgy and pretty. Formula was good, a bit sheer which is why I used 3 coats. I would have compared this to last year’s Sugar Plum Marshmallow, but I seem to have misplaced my bottle! 😦

I’d love to know your favorite out of these 5 – I’m pretty sure mine are Cotton Candy Creature and Black Licorice Bats. All 5 of these are available right now on pahlish.com and so are last year’s 5 polishes!
