Hallo fellow polish friends! Today, I've got your Pahlish Arcana Collection swatches! Wheeeee!!!
Inspired by a deck of tarot cards, Arcana is a 6-pack of shades that’s jammed with rainbowy holo flakies and some shifty little shimmers in between.
There’s a level of complicated that makes these pretties look markedly different in natural and artificial light.
As you’re aware, I’m a fan of natural light because I mostly live in that. Lots of you haul ass to the office everyday and that’s why I’ve chosen to shoot these twice: once with mah windows and again with my garbage desk lamp.
Does my garbage desk lamp pick up all the rainbow flakes? Nope – but it gets pretty darned close! Maybe soon we’ll have grass again and then I can do everything with a side of salad instead!
In the past while, I’ve played in more indie polishes than you can shake a stick at and I’ll tell ya what, Palish is right up there in my top 3 indie brands.
Shannon (who brews out of Nashville, Tennessee) makes consistently good polishes. They’re easy to work with the brushes she’s chosen and the finishes are beautiful both inside and out.
Some of these took me 2 coats where some took 3. That’s really just because I do crazy-thin coats. For most of you, 2 will get ‘er done. Then everything has a layer of my favourite Revlon Quick Dry Top coat over it. Why that one? Because I love it.
Right now I have so many things on my desk that I can barely breathe and lots of bottles were in line to get done before this. But when Pahlish is sitting there staring at me and saying “Paint me! I’m interesting and beautiful,” I really can’t help if it jumps the line and gets to go before everything else.
Dear mainstream brands, I’m sorry you got bumped for Pahlish. But look at these swatches – you really can’t blame me. At all.
Pahlish Arcana launched mid-January of this year and she retails at the newly launched Palish.com for $11 USD each or $60 USD for the set.
US international shipping costs shot sky high, so if you’re in Canada, I have the best news! GirlyBitsCosmetics.com just stocked Arcana so you can totally get it here – in Canadian dollas with Canadian shipping and zero duties! Score!!!
That’s it for me, kids! Now I’m off to sit my butt on the couch and play video games! See ya’ll soon!
