Pahlish ~ Olea Europaea



Pahlish ~ Olea Europaea
Blackened olive holographic with gold shimmer

This is the last of the Pahlish polishes from my box of untried for now. Olive is not usually my colour, but I sometimes like to push myself a little bit colourwise, so it won’t all end up in teal and purple here.

Anyway, the formula is good, I didn’t encounter any problems with application at all. I used two easy coats for full coverage, and drying time is also pretty good.

Here’s what Olea Europaea is all about; two coats and no topcoat, the picture is taken with flash:


The rainbows are so pretty!


The holo effect is quite strong in this polish, I like that!


Here’s what the polish look like in my light box:


I decided that I might as well mix it with two other colours outside my comfort zone: Gold and yellow. I might as well take it all the way, right? I made dots in various sized from the base of my nails and halfway down. I topped it with topcoat and here’s my final mani.

And from a different angle to show off the rainbows:


The flash almost killed the look of the gold. Let me turn that down for you:


And here are the three polishes I used:


I’m not quite sure that I’m going to keep Olea Europaea yet. I mean, I can see that I actually can wear it, but question is - am I going to? Decisions, decisions…


Number of coats: 2
Drying time: Pretty fast
Finish: Linear holo
Overall impression: Dark olive flashing some amazing rainbows!
Buy again: No
