Twinsie Tuesday - Neon

Hi everyone!  Today's Twinsie Tuesday is all about neon so I'm wearing this China Glaze untried Sun of a Peach.

China Glaze Sun of a Peach is a bleached orange neon and it's a beautiful color.  That said, the application was horrendous!  It streaked, had bald spots and needed way too many coats.  Let's just say I wasn't quite saying sun of a peach while applying this.  It has the kind of formula that makes you feel like you've never painted your nails in your life (and we all know I've done a lot of that).

Anyways, this is 4 coats.  It's so pretty.  To bad the formula left so much to be desired.

Pahlish Jungle Book and Tropical Trios Swatches and Review

Press Sample

Hi everyone! Tonight I'm showing you not one but TWO gorgeous trios from Pahlish tonight: the Jungle Book Trio and the Tropical Trio.  These really speak for themselves so let's take a look!


Jungle Book Trio

Pahlish The Dawn Patrol is a stunning bright teal holo with lots of gold shimmer.  I am OBSESSED.  I was trying to swatch and had to stop and wear this baby for a full manicure.  This one dries to a matte finish so make sure to put some top coat on .

This is 2 coats.

Pahlish The Word of Bagheera.  This one is a gorgeous blackened indigo holo with bits of purple flecks that flash at different angles.  My camera wasn't able to pick them up, but they're there.  Either way, this is another stunning polish.

This is 2 coats.

Pahlish Man's Red Flower.  This is a bright pink leaning coral holo.  Like The Dawn Patrol, this also dries to a matte finish, so don't forget the top coat if you like it shiny.

This is 2 coats.

Tropical Trio

Pahlish Watermelon Punch.  This is a bright, break your camera, jelly neon pink with a violet, blue, and these pearly white flakes.  The white flakes are like someone chipped off a piece of a pearl.  It's such a gorgeous look!

This is 2 coats.

Japanese Neon Melon.  This has the same finish as Watermelon Punch, but it a deep bright blue.  Those pearl flakes look amazing sitting in this blue jelly!

This is 2 coats.

Pahlish Melon Baller.  This one has an orange leaning neon coral jelly base with more of those gorgeous flakes.  This is another eye searingly bright color and absolutely gorgeous!

This is 2 coats.

And there you have it!  Two absolutely stunning trios.  You can't go wrong with any of these and it's also awesome that you can purchase them individually.  You don't have to buy the whole set.  My personal favorites from both trios are The Dawn Patrol, The Word of Bagheena, and Japanese Neon Melon.

These will be available from Pahlish.com July 5th at 7pm CST for pre-order for 24 hours.  Check out these places for updates and more from Pahlish!

Elevation Polish and Girly Bits Collaborative Duo: Bamboozled

Press Sample

I've got lots to show you this holiday weekend!  This morning I'm showing you a special duo by the makers of Elevation Polish and Girly Bits called Bamboozled.  This duo is inspired by none other than bamboo and each polish represents it in it's dry or fresh state.

Elevation Polish Arashiyama.  It's a sandy brown nude with charcoal flakes and holographic pigment and represents bamboo in it's dry state.  It's gorgeous in the bottle and I wish it played better with my skin tone.  It looks gorgeous on other bloggers I've seen!  Application on this was perfect; no complaints at all.  (Don't forget to click the name to see google images of the bamboo forest this polish was named for!)

This is 2 coats.

Girly Bits BamBoom!  BamBoom! is a light bright green holo with holo green micro glitters to give it even more sparkle.  It represents bamboo in it's fresh state.  This polish applied perfectly!  Because of the micro glitter, this dries a little bumpy so consider giving it an extra layer of top coat.

This is two coats.
