Ready Or Yacht

Pahlish May 2017 Releases Ready Or Yacht

Ready or Yacht is a white cream base with a very subtle violet shimmer as well as an assortment of ultrachrome flakes. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

I really loved this one, but a small part of me wishes it was a crelly white base so the colors of the UCC flakes could shine through just a touch more.

Summer Creams Trio

Lemon Bee

Pahlish May 2017 Releases Lemon Bee

Lemon Bee is a pastel neon yellow cream. I really loved this shade and it’s much brighter in person, but I did find the formula a bit on the thick side. The first 2 coats were slightly patchy (nature of the beast with pastel like shades) so I needed 3 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

Fairy Lights

Pahlish May 2017 Releases Fairy Lights

Fairy Lights is a bright robin’s egg blue cream. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

The first coat was slightly streaky, but the second coat evened it out beautifully.

Sugar Bloom

Pahlish May 2017 Releases Sugar Bloom

Sugar Bloom is an almost pastel like lavender cream. This isn’t a full on pastel, but it’s halfway there. Very delicate and incredibly soft and lovely.

I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos. I did have minor self leveling issues with application.

Pahlish May 2017 Releases Overview

What a whopper of a release! 16 gorgeous polishes in just one launch. As far as application goes, Lemon Bee and Sugar Bloom had slight issues, Lemon Bee more so than Sugar Bloom. Aside from that, the rest of the polishes applied extremely well.

My top picks from this 16 piece collection are:

Kiddie Pool, Seaside, Ready or Yacht, Electra Heart, Time Vortex, Don’t Blink and Lemon Bee (despite application issues, I found the color fun and appealing)

Price: $10.00 Each
