Hey everyone! I have been distracted by other things this week and starting tomorrow, I will be busy with a extended weekend get-together. I have photos just waiting to be published, so even though I won't be able to provide commentary, I am going to spam you guys with them instead. Yay! I should get back on track next week.
Today, I have a few Takko Lacquer polishes to share. Make sure to follow Takko Lacquer on Twitter or Instagram, she posted a teaser today of a new color that will be included in the restock on Monday, Feb. 3rd in her shop here.
Hello readers! I have a few posts that are been kept on the back burner for a few weeks now so I am going to make sure they get published this week. The series of photos that I have this week were edited just a bit smaller than I usually size them., so I apologize for that.
Today I have a few polishes I picked up from Sephora a few months ago when they first released their new line, Sephora Formula X. I wasn't necessarily looking for a new base-coat or top-coat, so I didn't get any of those. But I was very happy to see such a large range of colors and finishes be released. I think I spent a good 20 minutes just browsing the selection when I first saw them in my local Sephora. And they are all moderately priced at $10 to $12.50 depending on the finish, a little spendy but not too much so, making a nice pick-me-up type polish.
Sephora Formula X Danger Zone
Two coats Part of the Electrics
This one looked more coral in the bottle but ended up being a
bright neon pink with pink shimmer.
It was a little on the thick side and dried to a matte finish (not unusual with matte polishes).
I didn't realize this one was a textured polish until I applied it. But it was a nice surprise, I really like the look of this navy textured polish, the gold shimmer gives it a nice detailing. It's darker and has less gold shimmer than OPI Alacatraz Rocks but they do look similar.
I bought this one to see how it would compare to Enchanted Polish Seven Nation Army. At first glance, it looks very similar, both are black and white glitter in a clear base with holo pigment. But the Enchanted wins over this one for me. Chaotic has larger pieces of glitter and the holo pigment is more subtle. Still, a very pretty topper and if you don't have Seven Nation Army, I would recommend getting this one.
Ahh! I love this one so. much. I can't explain why the most understated of all of these polishes is my favorite. I love a good neutral and this one applied so smoothly and is just cool enough for my skin tone.
Sephora Fomula X are released in specifically named lines within the brand, such as New Classics, Electrics, Holograms, etc. These all can be purchased online or at your local Sehora.
Happy Friday you guys! It actually snowed here in Central Texas last night so today I get to enjoy a snow day. Those don't come around too often here, but when it does happen, it's a nice free day. Continuing from yesterday, I have few more Pahlishes to show you guys today. Eleven's Hour is Over Now and The Clock is Striking Twelve's are paired together for Pahlish's January 2014 One Last Bow Duo. Harlequin Doll is unfortunaly not available any longer, it was a limited edition polish from December. The One Last Bow Duo is only available for the month of January and the last restock of it will be tonight in Pahlish's shop, so make sure to pick it up while you can!
Pahlish Eleven's Hour is Over Now
Charcoal gray creme with lots of iridescent flakes in pink/purple/blue and silver shimmer
Very cool toned and I love that combination of flakes and shimmer that the dark base. It looks almost like a mineral or rock surface.
Pahlish The Clock is Striking Twelve's
Layered over Eleven's Hour is Over Now
Clear based topper of metallic and holographic gunmetal glitter as well as black, gray, and iridescent rainbow flakes.
BAM! Take the subtle look of Eleven's Hour and amps it up (to 11 one could say).
Pahlish Harlequin Doll
Brown/plum holographic with gold shimmer
The color alone is unique and mysterious and the holo pigment is just enough to sparkle in the sun.
To purchase any of the polishes shown today, look to Pahlish's Big Cartel shop, and Facebook page, Blog, or Instagram for updates. Other stockists of Pahlish are Llarowe and Edgy Polish.

Hello all! I am beyond excited to show you guys today's post. Pahlish recently released part one their All of Time and Space collection and it is a beautiful mix of colors and finishes, all inspired by the awesome that is Doctor Who.
Pahlish The Ghost Shift
Dark silver holographic finish with gunmetal and iridescent purple flakes

Inspired by the cold cold Cybermen, this silver holo is a much more lively version.

Pahlish Bad Wolf
Taupe with red/violet shimmer and flakes
Pahlish has created some very pretty taupe polishes and this one is another to add to that collection. The red/violet shimmer is just outstanding it that base.
So. much. GLITTER! And Shimmer! It's lightens the black base a bit and makes this a totally unique polish. And it's inspired by my favorite companion, Donna, and her relationship status with the Doctor.
Good morning! I have part two of Darling Diva Polish's White Witch Collection to share with you all today. Part one was posted yesterday here. While I ended up posting this collection in alphabetical order, the ones in today's post include my favorites of the collection. Nightbird is so deep and dark, I can't help but fall head over heels in love with it. Rooms on Fire was one that surprised me in how much I loved it, the color is very saturated. As I posted yesterday, I applied three coats of polish within each photo for maximum coverage and my regular topcoat.
