All of Time and Space: Part I

All of Time and Space: Part I
January 3rd @ 7 pm central

Today's post is one that I'm very excited to share with all of you! As you know we've been working on a Doctor Who inspired collection for awhile now. We had so many good ideas and colors that we've decided to split this collection into two parts! This post will contain the swatches and shade descriptions for Part I which will be released on January 3rd. Part II will be released in early February with swatches being released throughout January.


Mad Man With a Box

This shade is one that you may recognize from our Black Friday preview sale. =)

Dusky navy blue jelly loaded with vivid blue duochrome shimmer and rich gold metallic flakes

Bad Wolf
  Soft mushroom taupe creme loaded with reddish violet shimmer and flakes

Lullaby Without End

Vivid coral red jelly that leans pink with soft shimmer and blue metallic glitter accented with iridescent orange hex

Forest of the Dead
Deep green jelly base packed with coppery metallic flakes and bright green duochrome shimmer

The Ghost Shift

Darkened silver holographic with gunmetal grey and iridescent purple microflakes that pop out in lower lighting, while the holographic effect is stronger in bright lighting

So Not Married!
Deep black jelly base packed with intense red shimmer and rich gold flakes

Whew! Now I bet that some of you are wondering....where does this leave the Janury Duo?? 

The January Duo is also Doctor Who inspired, of course!

One Last Bow 
The "One Last Bow" duo consists of two shades:

Eleven's Hour is Over Now 
 Dark charcoal grey jelly packed with iridescent flakes in a rainbow of colors accented by soft silvery shimmer

The Clock is Striking Twelve's 
Clear topcoat with a mix of gunmetal and holographic gunmetal glitters accented by small black hex and small matte gray squares with a dose of iridescent rainbow flakes

Holiday Pahlish Surprise!

Happy holidays Pahlish lovers!

We have a special surprise for you today! Some of you may remember our Twelve Days collection from last Christmas. One of my all-time favorite polishes, Partridge in a Pear Tree, headed up that collection. As a special holiday treat I've pulled it out of the vault and given it a minor reformulation to freshen it up!

First up, here is the new swatch!

Partridge in a Pear Tree - 3 coats

Soft and creamy porcelain nude cream with pale gold, copper, and red flecked shimmer combined with scattered metallic olive hex and squares, small metallic wine hex, and two sizes of matte burgundy hex.

Second, a comparison between the two versions!

What's changed? 
The new version has a more opaque base that is much smoother and creamier. 
There is just slightly less glitter which has made the polish smoother and overall easier to apply.
The red fleck shimmer has been shifted to a combination of red, copper, and pale gold to complement the softer appearance.

This polish will be available on Friday, December 13th at 7 pm central in the Pahlish shop and will remain available throughout the holiday season.
