Pahlish Swatches!!

Hi everyone! I wanted to share some swatch spam from one of my very favorite Indie brands...Pahlish! I have lots of swatches, so let's get to it!

First up is Sullen Girl. This polish is a mix of iridescent blue glitters (like the glitters in Lynnderella Bride of Franken) and holographic glitters in a grey jelly base. Here I layered 1 coat over Zoya Kelly.

Next is Slow Fade of Love. This is a deep purple jelly base with purple and holographic glitters. It has amazing depth! It is so lovely, and must be seen in person to truly appreciate all of it's beauty.

Next up is Great Wide Open. This one is a mix of multicolored hex and bar glitter with with a smattering of white bars and hexes (and even diamonds!) in a clear base. It does have some lovely shimmer which is difficult to photograph, but looks lovely on the nail. This is two coats over China Glaze First Mate. It is such a fun polish!

Next is the first Pahlish that I ever owned, Train Underwater. It is a blue jelly with all sorts of gorgeous glitters (some color shifting) going on in it. It is impossible to photograph all of it's gorgeousness. Mine is from the first batch that was made, but I know that the polish is even more fantastic now (I'm going to be ordering a back-up soon so that I can have the new and older formula!). If you are only going to own one Pahlish...this is the one to go for! (but I suggest getting as many as you can!)

Next is Sunlight Shooting Through Pine Trees. This is a sheer golden flakie/shimmer polish. I layered 1 coat over Orly Lucky Duck for my swatches. This was one of the original Pahlishes and has recently been discontinued.

Up next is a fun Pahlish, Glittoris! This polish is unique in her collection, because as she states on her Etsy page, no two batches of this are the same. It is always a mixture of pink and red glitters in a jellyish base, but you never know exactly what it will look like until you get it. This is one 1 coat of Glittoris over Essie Watermelon.

Up next is Typewriter Keys. This is a black and white shard glitter topcoat with holographic glitter. It is so much fun! One of my favorite Pahlishes! Here it one coat layered over Orly Snowcone.

Last, but not least, is Dark Parades. This is a multicolored glitter in a shimmery purple jelly base. This is 1 coat over Sally Hansen Purple Pizzazz. I just love this one!

Pahlish is available from Shannon's Etsy page. She usually restocks on Friday evenings at 7 pm, but follow her on Facebook for more detailed restock information. Also, starting July 25th, Pahlish will be stocked at Llarowe as well. I hope you enjoyed these swatches! She is always coming out with new things that I HAVE TO BUY!


  1. You sure know how to take spam to a whole new level! This is amazing. I want! I need! Dark Parades and Great Wide Open are fantastic. I kinda want another Train Underwater now too!

  2. Thank you! Yes those two are awesome! So much fun! And yes...I will be purchasing another Train Underwater soon! So pretty!
