August is Indie Month – Day 4: Pahlish “Blood Red Jam”

“Blood Red Jam” by Pahlish was the very first Indie polish that I ever purchased. This polish and this brand is what got me into the Indie scene. Pahlish is based out of Arkansas and the owner/creator, Shannon, makes some of the most gorgeous polishes that I have ever laid my eyes on.

Blood Red Jam is inspired by Lana Del Ray – “My old man is a tough man, but he’s got a soul as sweet as blood red jam”. It is described by Llarowe as “a blood red jelly base with dense red foil micro flakes, purple/orange translucent spark”.

And then I added a holo top coat! By MDJ ColorBlends which I will be reviewing in full on Day 29!

Pictured above is one coat of Duri 2, two coats of Pahlish “Blood Red Jam”, and one coat of Glisten & Glow HK Girl top coat (and on the final picture, one coat of holo top coat). Wear time has lasted as long as 5 days for me with this polish, but I usually remove it after only a couple so I can switch my polish up.

The formula for this polish is absolutely excellent. Two coats until it is opaque, and there was no dragging when I put on either coat.

 

Blood Red Jam cannot currently be purchased on the Pahlish website , but it IS still available on Llarowe! Yay!

Stay tuned tomorrow where I will be doing another 2 posts – a CBL and an Enchanted Polish!

Thanks for reading!

Cheers,

Taylor

Disclaimer: I purchased this polish by myself, it was not sent to me for review purposes. As always, my opinions are 100% my own.

Pahlish Lady Adelaide Duo

Good evening ladies (and possibly gentlemen!)

I wanted to share with you an awesome prize that I won from my favourite indie brand “Pahlish”. I entered the contest through sharing through the facebook page, and I got lucky with one of her prizes and won the “Lady Adelaide Duo”! This duo included two polishes: “Ideas of Things” and “Colder Than a Wave”.

I apologize the pictures are not perfect. I am new at this and still getting used to how to take the best picture for swatching and showing the best colour in the polishes. Here are my swatches…

The gray/blue/silver polish on the left is “Ideas of Things” and the glitter is “Colder Than a Wave”

Please excuse the pre-cleanup photos. I was so excited when I received the prize that I had to take pictures as soon as I could to share with the ladies on my polish group on facebook! I plan on uploading better photos to this post when I redo my nails with these two polishes!

xoxo,

Taylor
