Hi everybody! It’s me again and what do I have for your screen today? I have the Pahlish Wilds Collection and the Pahlish Rose Duo. Canada Post lost my package. Then Canada Post found it. I know, right? Lucky us!
Before I start, I need to mention that the weather here has been a big bag of suck. There’s been almost no sunlight to work with, just flat grey skies. Flat grey skies are bad for shootin’ the way I do – shadows get washed out and I can’t get shifts or sparkles to show. While you’re perusing, keep in mind there are holo flakes & shifty pigments in here that my camera (and eyeballs) just can’t pick up in this dumb winter light.
pahlish rose duo swatches
Pahlish Ballerine – Rose Duo 2019 (above). Gah! If there were a rose-gold sister for Golden Snidget, it would be this! Come on! I can’t even. It’s perfect in all the ways. And how many coats? 2 + top. If you’re looking at this thinking “I might need this,” trust me, you need this.
Pahlish Secret Garden over Tivoli Orange Mirror Effect Thing (above). I know you thought I’d take this topper and slap it over my Revlon Black Magic but I had this Tivoli thing on my desk and thought… hmm. I feel like this match was made in the heavens. If there were a more perfect pairing…
Pahlish Secret Garden over CND Vinylux Black Cherry (above). Huzzah! That’s 1 coat of Secret Garden (+ top) over 2 coats of Vinylux and I’m awfully sure I just won all the things.
pahlish wilds collection swatches
Pahlish Silverback – Wilds Collection February 2019 (above). That’s 2 coats + top and all of these fairly beg for top coat. This smoke grey just makes me smile with the little pinky-bluey shift that’s hiding in it.
Pahlish Monsoon – Wilds Collection February 2019 (above). 3 coats + top. She’s so soft and floaty with her tiny bit of dust.
Pahlish Desert Rose – Wilds Collection February 2019 (above). 2 coats + top and maybe I could have done 3 but I like the delicacy I got in 2, so I stopped. She has subtle rainbow twinkles and shifty bits that go from blue to green. She also has magical powers that somehow made me feel like… a girl.
Pahlish Desert Rose with a side of keyboard and rare sunshine (above). See? Twinklies!
Pahlish Cascades – Wilds Collection February 2019 (above). 3 coats + top. No matter how I turn my hand (or how close I get to the window), I can’t get any kind of decent light to show you the masterful coppery-ness that lurks inside here. Just trust me when I tell you it’s there, k? Because it is.
Pahlish Dune – Wilds Collection February 2019 (above). 3 coats + top and I’m tilted a little weird so hopefully you can see the tiny silvery scattered holo flakes that are in there? Maybe? It’s the stuff that’s in all of these and when the sun comes out to play, it’s like you’ve been carrying a secret in your pocket the whole time.
Pahlish Cloud Forest over Dune – Wilds Collection 2019 (above). And then there’s this top coat that’s jammed full of every single flake additive that Shannon has. That’s 1 coat of Cloud Forest over Dune. Soooo pretteh!
Pahlish Silverback - Pahlish Wilds Collection Feb 2019 (above). Words? I have zero. All I’ve got are big heart eyes and the fastest #GrabbyHands you’ve ever seen.
What else can I say? Only this: Dear Shannon, I love you. 💘
