Hi everybody! Lookit me! I’m all kinds of island relaxation with the Pahlish Tropical Collection! And you know there’s more to show you. There’s the May 2019 Violet Duo and Shannon’s Bunny Rescue Charity polish too!
pahlish tropical collection swatches
Pahlish Honeydew – Pahlish Tropical Collection (above). I see this green and immediately thing of three things. First, I hope the photos aren’t greying out – something weird is happening and I can’t figure it out. Second, gold flerkies! Ermahgerd! Third, JJ.
And you probably want to know how many coats, right? Um, 3 + top. My notes also say that if you’re sporting a soak-off overlay, odds are good you’ll get a bit of yellow staining. That’s okay though because once you take it off, you’ll just want to slap on something else. Something like maybe….
Pahlish Fiji – Pahlish Tropical Collection (above). I know, right? Sooooo soft and pretty in 3 coats + top. Yes, you can still see slight VNL but that’s okay because they’re only there if you’re looking for ‘em.
Pahlish Bermuda – Pahlish Tropical Collection (above). Lemme tell you, if you start painting and on your first coat think it’s never, ever going to build, you’re 100% wrong. It gets to this in 3 easy coats. And you know what else? I skipped top coat on the pinky so you could see what a difference it makes to these beautiful shades. You need top for these. Don’t skip it, k?
Pahlish Strawberry Guava – Pahlish Tropical Collection (above). Again, that’s 3 quick coats + top and if I recollect, this one dries straight up matte. Them smashed gold flakes just make me smile. It’s like Shannon waved her Whimsy Wand over these and magic came out!
Pahlish Poppy Hill – Pahlish Tropical Collection (above). Huh. My notes here are pretty short. They simply say “2 + TC.” That means it’s perfect.
pahlish violet duo may 2019 swatches
Pahlish Space Dust – Pahlish Violet Duo (above). Ooof! Look at that! Wait – let me tell you how to look. Start with the pinky and go up. See how my pinky shows green? See how my middle shows straight-up violet? See how the top of the bottle shows pink? In 2 coats + top, it’s all of those things with a side of holo sparkle. It’s special.
Pahlish Sky Glass – Pahlish Violet Duo (above). Apparently I didn’t take any notes for this at all. It might be that my brains exploded from the sheer magnificence of it. How many coats? Uh… I dunno. 2? 3?
pahlish charity polish
Pahlish Cotton Tail – Charity Polish May 2019 (above). Shannon has a bunny. Her name is Magnolia. Shannon made this polish for Magnolia’s 3rd birthday. $2 from each (limited edition ‘til the end of June) bottle sold will be donated directly to the Nashville Bunny Rescue. Kinda great that you’ll get polish and save bunnies at the same time, huh?
And that’s it! It’s all so pretty and all so Springtastical! Every time I think I’m just about indie’d out, Shannon cranks out a collection that punches me right in the feels. The Tropical Collection, Violet Duo, and Bunny Charity polish are all available now at Pahlish. If anything strikes your fancy, pop over there ‘n have a browse. You can thank me later. 😬
See you later, friends!
