Hi everyone! Today I have the Venetian Duo to share with you which is a collaboration between Elevation Polish and Pahlish. This duo rounds out their collaborative Marco Polo Collection which I posted about here and here. This duo lauched last week in Pahlish's shop and yesterday in Elevation Polish's shop and will be available during the month of August in both shops for $22 and comes with special "Elevation Pahlish" LE labels.
Elevation Polish The Merchant's Sea is a thermal shimmer polish that shifts from a bright aqua (warm) to a dusty teal (cool). Formula was very nice to work with and I got full coverage in 3 thin coats. The green shimmer is so gorgeous in this polish, just amazing against both base colors but it pops more against the teal. The thermal shift is very nice and stayed mostly in the warm state on me, but I was pleasantly surprised that even in the 90+ degree weather that we have been having, it lingered in the cool state for a good while which NEVER seems to happen when I wear thermals.
Pahlish The Wayfarer is a clear-based topper filled with platinum flakes, iridescent glitter, and ultra chrome flakies in a variety of colors including blue, green, copper, gold, and silver. Formula was very nice and easy to spread with a good glitter/flakie load at one coat over the base color. I used 1 coat of The Wayfarer here over The Merchant's Sea. I love the iridescent glitter thrown into the mix here so much and the larger shards of platinum flakes add a lot of interest. It is a perfect pairing with The Merchant's Sea.
