Ermahgerd! I don’t even know where to begin with the Pahlish This Is Holo-ween! 2017 Collection. It’s 8 limited-edition shades with fabulous formulas that look entirely different indoors and out. I will have all, please.
Inspired by The Nightmare Before Christmas, this collection will be available for pre-order starting 7pm central time on October 15th thru midnight October 21st. There’s more housekeeping stuff, but I’ll add it at the end b/c I just wanna show you all the pretties now.
pahlish this is holo-ween! 2017 collection swatches
I’ve shot these for you indoors with natural light and again with a side of salad so you can see how magnificently they show in different lighting. Oh! I should mention too that everything you see is topped with a single coat of my trusty Revlon Quick Dry Top Coat.
Pahlish Oogie Boogie – This is Holo-ween! 2017 (above). In 3 thin coats, she’s a lovely soft grey with a bunch of shifty turquoise flakies. She reminds me of my favourite cashmere sweater. I just want to pet her and love her and be all wrapped up in her. Creepy, huh?
Pahlish Oogie Boogie – LE October 2017 (above). Add some light and lookit! She’s shimmery!
Pahlish Oogie Boogie – LE October 2017 (above). Add some light and tilt that-a-way and whuuut? Holo sparkles too? Yes! All the things!
Pahlish Ride With the Moon – This is Holo-ween! 2017 (above). I’m sure I’ve told you before that I love.love.love the silvery smooth look that holos have indoors in natural light, right? This shade is no different. I adore it. If you look real close, you’ll see the orangey-pink flakies hiding in it! So pretteh!
Pahlish Ride With The Mooon – LE October 2017 (above). That’s 3 thin coats for maximum saturation and when you give it some grass, the flakies disappear and the holo comes out to play.
Pahlish Ride With The Moon – LE October 2017 (above). Rainbowz!!
Pahlish Frog’s Breath – This is Holo-ween! 2017 (above). Good gravy! Lookit dat shift! No really, lookit dat shift!
Pahlish Frog’s Breath – LE October 2017 (above). Add a side of salad (aka big light and some grass), and I don’t even know what to say. I can barely even believe it’s the same shade I just showed you, but it is.
Pahlish Frog’s Breath – LE October 2017 (above). Tilted a little more towards the light and now it’s different again. My brainz is scrambled.
Pahlish Lock, Shock, and Barrel – This is Holo-ween! 2017 (above). I don’t want to sound like a broken record, but these shades in natural light really, really float my goat. There’s a bunch of red and purple multichrome shimmer in here that when combined, give it a silvery, almost plummy walnut appearance.
Pahlish Lock, Shock, and Barrel – LE October 2017 (above). And with big light, ta da! Holos! Oh! 2 coats, it’s just 2 coats. Plus top.
Pahlish Pumpkin King – This is Holo-ween! 2017 (above). Yes, it popped me some lobster with the mid-afternoon sun, but who cares, man! Just look at that silvery, shifty coppery shade of rustyness! On my pinky, it almost looks reddish and when you hit my middle finger, it’s totally bronze. I don’t even have words anymore.
Pahlish Pumpkin King – LE October 2017 (above). Fine, I have more words. Okay, only one word. #GimmeThat.
Pahlish Sandy Claws – This is Holo-Ween! 2017 (above). 2 coats give you this hugely saturated silvery raisin + big huge heart eyes.
Pahlish Sandy Claws – LE October 2017 (above). I’m pretty sure my mind is too small to comprehend what happens when light hits these things. It’s like rainbows and smiles and happiness all jump out and punch me in the eye at the same time.
Pahlish Sandy Claws – LE October 2017 (above). Oh, rainbows, smiles, happiness, AND blue shimmerz!
Pahlish What’s This?! – This is Holo-ween! 2017 (above). That’s 2 coats of what Shannon calls “soft orchid pink scattered holographic with multicolored chameleon flakes and shimmer.” What do I call it? I call it LOVE. Dude, I swatched this and showed it to Nick and then said “OMGeee! I love this shade so much I wanna paint BOTH hands!” In my life as a swatcher, there is no greater polish compliment.
Pahlish What’s This?! – LE October 2017 (above). GimmeGimmeGimme.
Pahlish What’s This?! – LE October 2017 (above). Seriously, just hand it over and no one gets hurt. Seriously. I’m not kidding. I mean it.
Pahlish Deadly Nightshade – This is Holo-ween! 2017 (above). Hand this one over too. Just do it. Or die. I’m a shift-lover, we know this. I must have this. Or die. Run the shift with me from pinky to middle. I know, right? Amaze.
Pahlish Deadly Nightshade – LE October 2017 (above). Now I really got no words left.
And This is Holo-ween! 2017. Like I done told you at the start, mark your calendars for the preorder event that goes live from 7pm central time Sunday October 15th thru midnight Saturday October 21st.
If you’re thinkin’ to order the full set of 8 shades during that time (which I think you should), you’ll get a happy Trick-or-Treat Bespoke polish (a limited-edition Halloween shade) as a special gift. Can I show it to you? Nope. It’s a surprise. Shipping for preorders starts October 18th. That’s faaaaast!
If you order outside the preorder window, there’s no guarantee full sets will be available and no special treat for you. The good news is, if you miss the preorder and individual stuff gets sold out, Shannon will be doing a re-stock (of everything except the Bespoke) on the 22nd and the 29th. After October 31st, they all go “poof.” All of them. And the little ghosty label too. Poof. 👻
Now let's talk Pahlish! Whatchu gonna get? Huh?
