Pahlish March + April 2016 nail polish duos

Purchased by Me buttonHi 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!

Pahlish Loftiest Muse | Be Happy And Buy Polish

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.

Black + White Watermarble with Pahlish Munchkinland + Fancy Gloss Pixie Rose

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?

Pahlish Bubble Yum (Bespoke Batch) swatch + review

Gift buttonHi everyone! Are you having a good week? I hope so! Today I have a polish that was a gift back in September (my birthday month!), Pahlish Bubble Yum. This was a Bespoke Batch from sometime in 2016.

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?

Pahlish green + bronze mystery polishes

Purchased by Me buttonMorning everyone! Today I have two Pahlish mystery polishes to show you, a bronze and a green. I hadn’t picked up mystery polishes in some time and then I let them just sit there on my untried table. For shame!

Application was also a bit thick but otherwise good. This is 2 coats plus matte top coat plus shiny top coat.

I like the mystery polishes that Pahlish puts out, it’s a good price for something that you might love. Have you ever picked up a mystery polish from Pahlish?

Valentine’s Day Kisses nail art with Pahlish + Pretty & Polished

Press Sample buttonSo I had a post all ready for today, typed up and everything. And then somehow, it disappeared. No trace of it except that I had uploaded the pictures. Since I was starting over anyway, I decided to replace the post with this mani that I wore a couple of weeks ago with Pahlish Just Like the Setting Sun and Pretty & Polished Smoke & Mirrors.
