Pahlish: Adrift

Pahlish: Adrift
A bright cornflower blue with a mix of green and violet/blue aurora flakes

The theme for the "For The Love Of Polish"-box for July 2020 was Sea Glass.

The formula is a crelly packed with flakies. Not the easiest to work with, but manageable. You have to be careful with application in order not to get bald patches. I used three coats for my manicure and the drying time was good.

I made red and white stripes on it because I was short of other ideas :D

Here's the final result in daylight.

The colour combo is nice.

Here's "Adrift" on its own; three coats and no topcoat yet.

 And here are the polishes I used today.

Here are links to the two other polishes in the July 2020 box:

Polished For Days "Sea Gems": A pink base with a rainbow of seagrass inspired iridescent shifting flakes and holographic flakes.

Anchor & Heart "Salt Water Treasure" :A sea foam green crelly with blue/green/purple shifting shimmer, and delicate pink, green, and purple flakies.


I must admit that I'm beginning to have enough of flakies for now. I mean: I really like them and I think they are really pretty. But I'm not a huge fan of crelly-polishes because they're usually at least three coaters, and I honestly prefer my polishes to cover in two coats. I do understand that flakies like this need to be crellies in order for the flakies not to drown but it's still not really my thing.

Number of coats: 3
Drying time: Good
Finish: Crelly with flakies
Overall impression: Very pretty colour, tricky formula

Buy again: No


  1. Very, very pretty! :-) I always fear flakie and glitter polishes because I can never get those flakies and glitter particles exactly where I want on my nails :-)

    1. Thank you :) I totally understand that. I think the main problem is that the formula has to be sheer in order for the flakies to not drown. And I'm not a fan of sheer polishes :)

  2. Nice blue and love the mani :-D
