Pahlish Bespoke Batch Spam

Hi everyone!  Hope you're having a great weekend!  Tonight I decided to show you a few Bespoke Batch Palishes I've bought over the past few months.  Almost every week Pahlish releases one or two bespoke batches.  These are generally limited edition because of the cost or shortage of ingredients.  And with that I have to apologize because none of these are available, but check out Facebook sales groups and the Pahlish fan group and you may be able to snatch one up!

Pahlish Oh Philomena.  This is a grayish purple taupe with lavender holo glitter and shimmer.  Definitely one of my favorites!  I'll definitely be wearing this even more now that fall is coming.

This is 3 coats.

China Glaze Tickle My Triangle - Throwback Thursday

Okay everyone, we're going to pretend like it's still Thursday.  I had this mani on and completely blanked on making a blog post!

Tickle My Triangle (is it just me or is this supposed to be naughty? lol) is a medium pink/fuchsia scattered holo and  comes from the Kaleidoscope collection that was released in 2007.  This collection is definitely a classic and one day I'll own all of them.  I think I'm just missing Rated Holographic and Spin Me Around.

This goes on perfect in 2 coats.

Do you have any of these?  What's your favorite China Glaze collection?

Great Lakes Lacquer September Limited Editions

Press Sample

Hi everyone!  Can you believe August is almost over?  I'm so ready for fall to be here; it's my favorite time of the year.  You know it's coming when you start seeing pumpkin spice everywhere.

Today I have two gorgeous limited editions from Great Lakes Lacquer that will be available all through the month of September.

Great Lakes Lacquer Mother's Mauve.  My Mom’s birthday is September.  She’s a lady with a heart of gold; one of those ladies that is a Mom to everyone.  All of my close friends have called her Mom and do to this day.  This color is a dedication to her.  In my teenage years, I remember her bedroom being an explosion in mauve.  All tones of mauve.  She tells me that it needs to lean more pink but this is the color I remember.  See?  Still Mom.

I'm not usually a mauve kind of girl, but this one is a stunner.  This is a very purple mauve with a gorgeous gold shimmer (which I've been obsessed with lately) and a hint of holo.  Application was easy peasy.

This is 2 coats.

Great Lakes Lacquer Harvest Moon 2015: Come, Reap.  In traditional folklore, the Harvest Moon is the one that comes closest to the autumnal equinox.  This year’s Harvest Moon lands on September 28th.  In years of old, the light of the Harvest Moon illuminated fields so that farmers could continue harvesting that year’s bounty.  It signified the reaping of hard work and a close to the growing season.  A time of celebrating and a time of reflecting on what has been sewn, it is the end of one stage in nature and the beginning of another.  For those of you who recognize the phrase in the name from a book, there will be more to come by next year’s Harvest Moon.

This is a lovely orange leaning red jelly with shimmer!  I really love this one and it works from both fall and summer.  Application on this was nice, but I'd recommend waiting between coats.

This is 2 coats.
