Hey y’all! How is Monday treating you?

This week I have a mani from another indie brand. Yup, I bought even more nail polish! O_O  This time I decided to try out some creations from Pahlish, This one is called Heart of Man. It’s a gorgeous deep wine, almost black cherry colored, jelly base. It’s jam packed with garnet hexes, sprinkled with pink holo micro glitters, and topped off with raspberry squares. Since the glitter is all in various hues and shades of the base color, it adds depth and dimension and that gorgeous “inner glow” I love. So it’s not an over powering glitter party. I think this is another one you could safely sneak into the workplace.

The formula here was …. interesting. It was quite thick , almost the consistency of hair gel.  It took some getting used to because it didn’t spread as easily as other formulas do. But once I got used to it, I actually appreciated the formulation. There was no pooling, and it made it super easy to keep the polish just where I wanted it. I think the way to get the best results, is to do very thin coats. It builds up beautifully!

Heart of Man is still available in the Pahlish etsy shop for $9. I really appreciated the quick turn around time. The one downside to ordering polish online is that you have to wait for them to come in the mail. I’m really impatient and prefer instant gratification. But that wasn’t a problem here. I placed my order late Friday night, got a shipping notification Saturday morning, and had my polish in hand by Monday. Couldn’t ask for more!

I have a few other new polishes to swatch for you in the next few weeks, so stay tuned. Have you tried any indie brands yet? If so, what are your favorite brands? If not, is there something specific holding you back?

I’m back to linking up with the MANICure Monday ladies. This week the hop is being hosted by Mimi.

There’s a new link tool, so you don’t have to have a blog to link up! Head on over and show off your work of art. :)

  3. Very pretty look.

  4. Love the color. This is my first time hearing of the Indie brand but they sound interesting…especially the fact that it reminds you of the consistency of hair gel. The nail polish junkie is always down to try new polishes…lol

    • The hair gel thing was a bit of a shock at first, but it turned out pretty well once I got used to it. I am falling in love with indie polishes. They are all so much fun and so unique. I love being able to see the inspiration form someone’s everyday life come out in their work!
