Happy Sunday lovelies! 💕 I know I skipped out on my Swatch Sunday post last weekend, but I’m back with TWO new-to-me shades, courtesy of the oh-so-amazing @manigeek!
Karen recently posted a swatch of the purple Julep polish Madelynn & when I commented how beautiful it was, she offered to send it to me! Seriously, how sweet is she! The polish was originally gifted to her by @dyslizakitty. I was super excited when the saw the polish arrive, & even more excited when I saw she included a surprise extra polish as well.
Julep — Madelynn (It Girl)
2 coats + top coat
Oooooh hello purple!
Beautiful, beautiful purple. This is 2 coats of this polish & Essie Speed Setter to finish. This imperial purple shade has a shimmer to it, that flashes somewhat pink–more so in the bottle than on the nail, although I did manage to capture it somewhat. I also adore the blue/violet undertones that give this a slight blurple feel.
As I’ve said before, oh, about a million times, I just love purple so much. & this is a very lovely purple. The brush is a little difficult, but aside from that I have no complaints. Definitely a shade I can see myself wearing repeatedly!
Pahlish — Seto Taisho (Teacup Soilder)
2 coats + top coat
So on top of my beautiful new purple polish, Karen also included a polish shade for me to enjoy! This beautiful pale aqua holo is named Seto Taisho (Teacup Soldier) & has a flash of shimmer, a scattered holo & is just all around gorgeous. This shade was originally released as part of the Mukashi Mukashi collection & guess what! It’s still available to buy on the Pahlish website!
Also after my first experience with the Pahlish brand, I totally went window shopping & now I have like 6 I want for my birthday in October.
Thank you so much to the oh so lovely Manigeek for her very sweet gift. I still can’t get over how kind the nail polish community is–it makes me so happy to have found a group of people who love something as much as I do, & are so easy to share the love (& goods!) It’s also inspiring me to do the same, so I a giveaway is coming soon! I’m thinking of arranging it in honour of my birthday, so stay tuned.
