Pahlish March "Don't Hesitate" Duo

Hi everyone! Today I have Pahlish's March "Don't Hesitate" Duo to share with you. This duo was created in honor of creator Shannon's wedding this month and was inspired by she and her husband's song, "Baby I Love Your Way" by Peter Frampton. I actually did hesitate before I ordered it, but I'm so glad that I decided to pull the trigger because I do believe this is my favorite Pahlish Duo yet. Everything about it just works.

Fireflies Under the Pines is a clear-based glitter topper with lavender satin, holographic, and metallic glitters, caramel metallic glitters, tiny purple iridescent glitters, and a sprinkle of violet shimmer. It's so beautiful and sparkly! This is my favorite type of glitter topcoat lately because the glitters are just the right size. This also lends to a fantastic formula that spreads easily and isn't too thick or overly glittery. The combination of colors is lovely and the holo/iridescent sparkle is just perfect in it. I really want to try this matte too *adds to ever-growing to-do list*. This is 2 coats over Shadows Grow So Long, the other half of the March Duo.




Shadows Grow So Long is a pale lavender creme with purple, lavender, gold, and scattered charcoal flakes. As you can see, the base is very opaque and creamy so you get hints of all of this goodness going on which gives the polish a speckled effect. Formula was great and and was perfect at 2 coats. I just love this polish! The color is so fresh and clean for spring without being stark.




Pahlish is available from Pahlish's Big Cartel Shop. The March Duo will only be available during the month of March, so be sure to grab it while you still can! Be sure to follow Pahlish on Facebook and on their blog for details about restocks (they are Fridays at 7 pm CST) and new polishes.  Pahlish is also available from LlaroweOverall BeautyRainbow Connection, and Edgy Polish. Thanks for looking everyone!

  3. Just when I tried convincing myself that I didn't need this, you swatch this and now I feel like I absolutely need it. Purple is my favorite color and this one is great. I'm drooling over how pretty Fireflies Under The Pines is. I think it might be my most favorite polish I've seen Pahlish release. It's safe to say that I'm going to get this duo.

    1. I'm so impressed with this duo. I can't believe I tried to talk myself out of it because it is for sure my favorite duo yet (closely followed but the Halloween Carnival Duo with Tom Fury and The Dust Witch).
