Pahlish ~ Whiskey from a Bottle of Wine



Pahlish ~ Whiskey from a Bottle of Wine
Purple shimmery linear holo

I love purple holos and Whiskey from a Bottle of Wine looks stunning in the bottle. It doesn’t quite transfer onto the nails though, which is a shame!

I used two coats and the drying time is good.

Here’s what it looks like taken with flash:


It’s as if the polish is paler on the nails than in the bottle.


It gets even worse if I turn off the flash!


I added stamping to it, to give it some contrast. I found a nice motif on Moyou London’s stamping plate Pro Collection-15, and I stamped with a dark purple no name polish called “Suzi Skies in the Pyrenees”. It’s not the OPI one, it’s a fake one I bought a long while ago. It’s so fake it’s even in a NOPI bottle, haha. I love it to bits though – I only use it for stamping and I’ll be very sad when it’s all gone.

Anyway, here’s my final mani:


And a no flash picture:


Yes, that’s me, I like this after the stamping came on.


Number of coats: 2
Drying time: Food
Finish: Shimmery holo
Overall impression: I love the rainbows, but the colour itself is a bit too pale for me
Buy again: No

  1. It's quite pale but I like to wear pale shades from time to time.

  2. This has been on my wish list a while now, mostly because of the name, and because I thought it would be different - so thanks for sharing these swatches.
    I'm not put off by it's paleness and if I get a chance I probably will grab it anyhow ;)

  3. I love it in the flash light but otherwise it is a quite pale shade, though I love it with the stamping on it!

    1. The stamping surely helped on my impression of it :)

  5. you know, I was thinking the same thing when I put mine on!! it looks fantastic in the bottle and somehow it loses some of its luster on the nail.. nevertheless, it still looks good and i really like your stamping!
