Pahlish Mystery Polish: Like Autumn Leaves

For those of you that don't already know, the indie brand Pahlish now offers mystery polishes. They consist of test colors, prototypes, colors that never got released, and "oops" batches. They are pretty affordable at only $6 a bottle (previously $5). I've only ordered two and today I have the first one for you. Since these are mystery polishes, they have no names and therefore you can name them anything you want, which is always fun. Anyway, here is mine: Like Autumn Leaves.

I named this Like Autumn Leaves because the color screams fall to me and makes me think of the colors leaves turn when fall arrives. The name also comes from an Ed Sheeran song called Autumn Leaves. I love his music, so it was only fitting. It's a beige base that has the prettiest pink shimmer, red coppery micro-flakies, and orange and yellow glitter. I'll be honest, it's not exactly a me color but I really do like it. It's pretty and unlike anything I own or have ever seen. The shimmer is my favorite part about this polish. It's shy in pictures but totally visible in person. I also really love the flakies. Formula wise, it was great. I had no problems with application. I only used two coats and two coats of top coat.

I'm happy to have this mystery Pahlish, Like Autumn Leaves. It's not only perfect for Fall but it will make a nice palette cleanser when I'm in the need of one. I think these mystery polishes are such a cool idea and totally worth the money. The other one I have is super pretty, I can't wait to wear it.

Candy Lacquer Pastel Confetti

Lately, I've been buying a lot of my Candy Lacquer polishes from blog sales. I can't help it, I just love their glitters. The majority of them are colors that are no longer being made. For today's post, I have a really pretty one. Here's Pastel Confetti.

Pastel Confetti is a mix of pastel colored glitters in squares and hexagons in both small and large shapes. The colors are pink, blue, green, purple, and white. I really love it, it's so cute! I like the soft, girly look of it. It has an Easter vibe to it in my opinion. I layered it over Hit Polish Periwinkle Blues, which I thought was a great base. They really do compliment each other. What you see are two kind of thick but easy coats. I got a lot of glitter coverage on the first coat, but I used a second to cover up some bare spots. It dried relatively smooth so I only needed one thick coat of top coat.

I'm happy to have Pastel Confetti in my collection. It's not only unique but it's super pretty. I can't wait to wear the rest of my Candy Lacquer polishes. They're actually releasing their new Winter collection this Friday and I can't wait!

Hit Polish Periwinkle Blues

I feel like I haven't posted in a while, sorry about that! My nails pretty much got ruined while camping and as a result, they became nubs. I wasn't quite ready to show them off but now I really don't mind them. Anyway, today I have a really pretty polish to show you. Here's Hit Polish Periwinkle Blues!

Periwinkle Blues is a periwinkle, light purple crelly that has gold circle glitter, fuchsia circle glitter, light pink circle glitter, gold hexagons, and tiny glitters in gold, pink, and purple. Some of the glitters are even holographic. I adore this mix, it's super pretty and everything works great together. I just love how soft it looks. Formula wise, Periwinkle Blues was great. It was a tad sheer on the first coat but it built up nicely in three coats. I had zero problems with application. It didn't dry very gritty, but I used two coats of top coat to make it completely smooth.

Periwinkle Blues is now discontinued from the brand, which is the same for the rest of my Hit Polish collection, but thanks to a listing where you can purchase discontinued polishes from their past line up, you can easily add this beauty to your collection. I'll be wearing a lot of my Hit Polishes in the near future, so maybe you'll find something you'll want. Thanks for looking and have a great day!
