I was more than happy to see 2012 end. The last four months were not great, but here's hoping 2013 will be much better for all of us. I have several months of pictures and posts half done, so I should have enough content to help me get my mojo back. As always, if there's something you'd like to see swatched, or you'd like better pictures of something I've already shown, just let me know!
Pahlish is currently having a sale on discontinued colors. On New Year's Eve, I decided to do a few super quick swatches of the discontinued colors that I own. Not the best timing since I ran out of time to do my nails for a party, but I did have enough time for hair and makeup and let me say... I looked fabulous. I grabbed some butter LONDONs to put underneath the Pahlishes to show how sheer or opaque they were. Swatches of the bLs by themselves can be found here. Swatches of the Pahlishes can be found on Etsy under their individual pages, which I've linked to in the next paragraph. I highly suggest checking those out, especially for Combustible Lemon. I could not get a decent picture of it.
My pointer finger is butter LONDON Artful Dodger and Pahlish Typewriter Keys, the middle finger is butter LONDON Blagger and Pahlish Goldmine; Gutted, the ring finger is butter LONDON Come to Bed Red with Pahlish Combustible Lemon, and the pinkie is butter LONDON Dahling with Pahlish Your Possible Heart (which is now sold out- I snoozed, you lost. Sorry! ) The bL polishes were two coats, while all of the Pahlishes minus Typewriter Keys were one coat. I don't think TK can be built up to full opacity without a billion coats. I did wear four coats of Goldmine; Gutted in early November and it was pretty opaque. I received tons of compliments while wearing it, so it's good if you're looking for an eye-catching, attention-grabbing polish.
And from the side to show off opacity better:
A few months back, I received a big box of indie polish goodies from my buddy Shannon of Pahlish as a pick-me-up. It totally worked! I will work on swatching all the different indie brands I now have thanks to her, but I've been super unsatisfied with the pictures my cameras are taking. I'm not entirely happy with these pictures, but I really dig Typewriter Keys and Goldmine; Gutted and wanted to try to share them. If you need better pictures of any of these, just leave a comment or email me and I'll try to get to swatching ASAP.
