Remember what I was saying about good luck…yup this duo was another prize that I won in Pahlish’s flash giveaway on her facebook page!
Look at these pretties! My pictures don’t nearly do them justice let me tell you! The glitter is Bag of Rocks and the Black shimmery polish is Most Sincere Pumpkin Patch. These are the first Pahlish polishes I’ve gotten and I must say I was super excited! I can’t believe the run of luck I’ve been having. Also can I just say that I’m jazzed as can be that this duo was inspired by “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown,” one of my all time favorite memories of Hallowe’en when I was a child. So let’s gaze at these lovelies one more time and then I will tell you about them. Finished? No? I’ll give you another moment…
First up is Most Sincere Pumpkin Patch. I’ll admit I haven’t had good luck with black polishes over all, clean up is frightening, my skin is very pale, sometimes they are streaky and so on. But, I went opened this bottle with an open mind and an open heart and I was rewarded! Most Sincere Pumpkin Patch is a delightful black jelly polish that has some amazing things going on, I know I had you at black jelly but really let me continue. Not only is it a perfect black jelly polish but it is completely filled with microshimmer…and not just ONE color of microshimmer, not TWO colors of microshimmer, but at least THREE colors of microshimmer! My eyes definitely detect copper, gold, and green microshimmer floating in a deep black sea (Pahlish’s description also indicates that there is pink microshimmer so up that shimmer to category FOUR). I’m telling you it’s filled with one more thing…win! There was streakiness in the first coat but a second coat leveled everything out and made my nails look as if they were coated in gel! Picture shows two coats to gorgeous perfect opacity topped with my beloved Glisten&Glow – HK Girl quick dry topcoat.
Next on the agenda is Bag of Rocks. I would gladly allow myself to be beaten with a bag of rocks to get this polish…HAHA. Ok, sorry I let myself go there a minute, I’ll dial it down. It is obvious that this duo is meant to be together and so therefore together is how I am going to show it. Bag of Rocks is a mix of tiny silvery metallic dots (I heart dot and circle glitters!) and green metallic squares floating alongside some light green microglitter in a clear base. This makes it so perfect for layering! I opted to do a gradient so that I could enjoy both polishes equally, and in fact I ended up wearing this mani for several days I was so happy with how it turned out! Pics show a VERY lightly dabbed gradient over MSPP if that gives you any indication of how much glitter is packed into this bottle! I topped the whole thing off with one light coat of Nail Pattern Boldness – Glitter Food and HK Girl.
I’m delighted with this lovely duo and I’m so pleased that I won it. It will be wonderful in my ever-growing collection of indie polishes! Go show Pahlish some love on her facebook page and you can check out this duo and her other polishes at her shop.
