Toxic and timeless by Pahlish


Hey guys!
so I have just a quick post for you guys tonight. I actually wasn't going to share it with you guys because I don't think the pictures came out that well. Meaning, they do NOT give this gorgeous polish any justice but I love it so much, I thought "WHAT THE HECK". You guys know I am not a pro so sometimes my pics won't be the best although I do try! Anyhow, this is a polish I saw awhile ago and fell in love with. I was lucky enough to get my hands on it and so glad I did. A bit about this polish...

Toxic and Timeless: It is a green jelly with large and small gold and blue hexes and bars . There's also a holographic nature to it. It's the PERFECT jelly sammich in a bottle. What I loved best about this polish was the application. I have had polishes like this before and they are a pain in the you know what when it comes to putting it on and a few I had to take off because it just did not look right. For my mani, I wore 3 thin coats and application was perfect. Went on so easily and looked GREAT!!! As always, I topped it with seche vite which is my go to top coat especially for anything with a lot of glitter but lately I have been getting those stupid air bubbles (see my post on " clowning around) on all my mani's and it is really starting to annoy me. I love what Seche Vite does! I love how smooth it makes your mani, the drying time and apart from the bubbles I really can't say anything bad about it but those bubbles are really starting to be a problem for me. If I am not using a glitter polish, I will use other top coats. For example if I am using an Essie, I will use my Essie top coat , which I use for most other cremes and such, or OPI top coat when wearing OPI's. But I think it is time I start looking for another heavy duty top coat....Any suggestions out there??
Anyhow, as I often do, I am getting off topic here..... Back to this gorgeous polish. As I said, this is three thin coats followed with a heavy coat of Seche vite. Lets get to the good stuff:):):):)

AAHH! Just look at the jelly goodness!!!

I LOVE how easily it layers so that it creates that wonderful jelly sammich look!

Yes, there is so VNL but it wasn't bad enough to bother me....

So, even though, as I said, my pictures are not the best quality, they are still good enough for you to see how gorgeous this polish is. I LOVE LOVE LOVE it! I really do. Again, I love how easily I was able to apply it because, in the past I have had a hard time with glitter based jellies. I have also seen swatches with a color underneath and that looked cool also but I love the look of this on its own. Pahlish can be bought at online here. IF you go to Etsy you will find it but it's in vacation mode because she sells here. They are sold for 9$ a bottle US and she has a new fall collection out right now that is just GORGEOUS!!!!.  She is also on facebook, here So, what do you guys think of this one? Fan of jellies? Own any Pahlish polishes?? Love to hear from you guys:) Hope you enjoyed my post:)

  1. So pretty! It's like a shade of emerald. I love fun nail polishes. I just tried a grey that I had.

  2. I really do not wear nail polish all that often and have never tried a jelly? What is that exactly. I do tend to be a traditionalist so when I have my nails done I tend to creme pinks, reds. The iridescence of this polish is amazing and truthfully I have never seen one quite like it-I do know some nail polish lovers and I will tell them about it.

    1. A jelly is what people in the nail polish community refer to when a polish is sheer. Basically, if you put it on, unlike a creme polish, you can still see your nail most of the time. So, in a polish like this, it creates that layered look with the glitters. So if I didn't have this polish I could use a jelly one, then take a glitter and put that on top, then repeat with the jelly again and then glitter and keep going until I have the desired look. The jelly polish makes it so you can "see through it" in a sense. Hope I explained that in a way that it made sense.....

  4. I don't know what you mean. I think the pictures turned out great. I have such a hard time when I polish my nails, .. I think I get more on my fingers than on my nails.

    1. AWE! Well thatnk-you Terry. Just in the polish community, people want clear and precise pictures. These are not that bad but I have taked better ones. As for your nails, trust me it gets better with time! Way better! But to avoid polish on your nails, you can put tape around your nails (on the skin part) and then when you're done take the tape off and it will be clean. MY trick, and trust me I have one because I also have a lot of polish on my fingers when I am done, is I use a small make up brush and dip it in polish remover and go around my nails and remove any excess polish.

  9. Not so sure about top coats but my daughter swears by OPI. She loves their polishes and uses/buys them every chance she gets.

    1. I also love OPI. As I said, I use it when I use my OPI polishes. And it is great as a top coat but with heavy glitters (not so much this one) a top coat can really make a big difference. I don't think I have tried my OPI on them, I always reach for my Sech Vite. Maybe I should give it a try:)

  12. Your pictures don't look bad at all! I've been wanting to do some kind of green for the fall. I couldn't pull this off at work but it's super cute! I know what you mean about the bubbles. I thought I was just terrible at painting my nails! Maybe it's not just me!!

  13. I have a polish something like this but it is full of pinks and purples in the little specks. I have always been disappointed in the outcome, but now I see from your post that I was just not doing enough layers.

  14. What a great color and I love that it has little sparkles in it. Your nails are a great shape naturally. My nails grow soft and not in such a nice shape so I usually get them wrapped in crystal acrylic. I wish I could keep them natural and I would if they looked like yours.
