I know, I know. Halloween has come and gone. And I would have had this post up on Halloween or before but I’ll be honest, I’ve really been struggling with anxiety this week and being seriously stressed and overwhelmed (still am 😦 ). So blogging took a backseat (thank you, past me for scheduling a ton of posts ahead of time) while I’ve been trying to sort myself out. I’m not completely sorted out (who is these days anyway?) but I wanted to sit down and show you the manicures I’ve had on my hands over the last couple of weeks leading up to Halloween. I’ve done a blood drip manicure, a disappearing/reappearing manicure, and a Frankenstein themed manicure. A copious amount of pictures ahead 😉
This is a grey polish (derp, I said that already) with multicolored flakes. It applied like a jelly polish, and had a good consistency. This is 2 coats and no top coat.
I dunno, there’s something classy about this polish, don’t you think?
Morning all! I hope you had a great weekend! My husband was out of town on a short emergency trip – his grandmother died unexpectedly – so it was nice to have him home. For today’s mani, I have a combination of Pahlish Armor Falling Down and Darling Diva Polish Kelpie Pee holo [press sample].
Armor Falling Down is a brown toned purple (purple toned brown?) with golden shimmer. This had good consistency but let dry before applying second coat, otherwise it’ll be a bit patchy. This is 2 coats and no top coat. Continue reading
Hey all! I found a bunch of photos of Pahlish test batches I’d taken a long time ago so I thought I’d better get them up to show you. Included in this post are: Brittanica, Sea Glass Beach, Wild Roses, Pinewood, Moderne, and Fido. Continue reading
Hi there, wonderful readers! Today I have two separate nail polish duos to show you from Pahlish: the March and August 2016. I ended up using the creme from March with the glitter from August and vice versa. Let’s see how they turned out!
Loftiest Muse (March 2016) is a light robin’s egg blue creme polish. (You might remember this from this nail art manicure.) Formula on this wasn’t the greatest. It was sheer, uneven, and doesn’t self-level. This is 2 coats and no top coat.
Hello, hello, my dear lovely readers. 🙂 I hope that your weekend was absolutely amazing. 😀 Today I have a manicure to show you with Pahlish Munchkinland and Fancy Gloss Pixie Rose and a black/white watermarble.
Pahlish Munchkinland is a pale pink base with rose gold flakes of different sizes. I layered 2 coats of this over OPI I Couldn’t Bare Less for a more pronounced white look. I dotted with Fancy Gloss Pixie Rose.
Fancy Gloss Pixie Rose is a pink holographic micro glitter with green flash/shimmer. Formula is very thick, and dries very textured. I used 3 thin coats but it took me THREE coats of top coat to get a glossy shine. I had no texture after 2 coats of top coat but no real glossy shine. No bueno.
I used OPI polishes to create the black & white watermarble. Of course, my other hand came out a bit better (and of course, I didn’t take a picture of her).
I love how this turned out – it’s just kind of a funky skittlette manicure (and you know how I like those!). What are your thoughts?
Bubble Yum is a bright pink polish with gold and pink flakes. My pictures show it so much more dark than it is – it is a bright pink polish!
Formula had a good thickness to it; it does dry satin. This is 2 coats plus matte top coat plus shiny top coat.
I do like the occasional pink polish and this one has just enough oomph and pizzazz to keep my interest. What do you think of it?
