Pahlish ~ Train Underwater & ?

Today I’ve got a couple of Pahlish polishes to show you. First one up is:

Pahlish ~ Train Underwater
Blue jelly with blue and green glitters in various shapes

The formula is really good on this. In fact it’s probably the jelly with the best formula I’ve ever tried on! Mind you, I’m not a huge fan of jellies as a rule, but I do like the effect that looks like the glitters are floating around in the base. But as I said, Train Underwater has a great consistency. The polish is easy to work with and covers well. I’d say that two coats is enough if you’re not a blogger with a serious camera that picks up every little detail. But since I am a blogger with such a camera, I used three coats for these pictures. Drying time between coats is good, no worries there.

And it is pretty too – what a bonus!

Here’s three coats, and a layer of topcoat:

I really like the mix of blue and green glitters!

I don’t understand the train reference, but it’s easy to guess why the polish is called something with “under water”, isn’t it?

Yes, I like this polish a lot, it’s definitely a keeper! Is it also a polish for you?

Number of coats: 3
Drying time: Fast
Durability: -
Overall impression: Great jelly, so easy to work with
Buy again: Probably not – I have so many blues by now

Next polish up is:

Pahlish ~ ?
jelly with blue, green and gold glitters and bars in various shapes and sizes

This polish is a prototype I bought in Pahlish’ shop. It hasn’t got a name because it’s not a polish they have for sale; my guess is that they only made this one. I bought two prototypes, and the rule is that you don’t know what colour you get. I wasn’t at all dissatisfied with this colour. I like both blues and greens.

This jelly acts exactly like jellies usually do. I find it difficult to make it look good, to be honest. I used three coats, and couldn’t have got away with any less than that. Drying time is average. I wonder why polishes from the same manufacturers don’t have the same drying time! That’s weird in my opinion!

But anyway – this is three coats plus a layer of topcoat:

Yes, it looks pretty nice, doesn’t it?

It reminds me of dark and mysterious water. It’s a nice thought.

It looks good but the formula puts me off. I’ll probably see if I can find it a better home. Maybe it’ll end up a place where they even find a name for it ;)

Number of coats: 3
Drying time: Average
Durability: -
Overall impression: I love the way it looks, but I’m not a fan of the formula
Buy again: No

That’s the two Pahlish polishes I chose to show you today. I’ve got two more in stock for you in a couple of days.

    1. Pahlish makes some really cool glitters :)

  2. They are so beautiful both of them, and if my nails wouldn't cry so loud everytime I cover them with glitter, Train Underwater would be mine for sure...
    Train kunne måske også være træne?

    1. Your nails are spoiled with Chanels :D
      Nå ja, det havde jeg ikke lige tænkt på :)

  3. I love jellies, so I love these both polishes! But especially the first one ;)

  4. These are gorgeous! I especially love Train Underwater. It's a classic Pahlish shade. As for the mystery shade, it looks like it's a prototype of their other core color Toxic and Timeless. It's a beauty.

    1. I've got a couple more mystery shades on their way - I hope for something really pretty this time too :)
