Pahlish: The Great Pumpkin Duo for October 2013

Fall is my favorite season and I love everything about it, especially the polish! I love the bright colors and crazy glitters, every year my stash seems to grow exponentially. In Western New York we have a beautiful autumn. I don't think I could ever leave the area for this reason alone. I have a very dear friend who moved to Florida and she misses fall like crazy. We have agreed that I can enjoy fall though because she gets to enjoy the beach in the winter haha.

I have another Pahlish Duo to show you today inspired by the classic holiday cartoon "It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!" My pinky nail on my swatching hand is a little nubby, so I had to photograph my left hand. I hate when that happens.

The Great Pumpkin Duo
A Most Sincere Pumpkin Patch & Bag of Rocks

Most Sincere Pumpkin Patch is described by Pahlish as "a multi-shimmered black jelly with gold, olive, pink, and copper shimmers."

The formula on this was amazing. I used just two coats to achieve the depth of this black and have it shown with no topcoat. It is opaque but I also felt like I could fall into it. The shimmer is shy, but when the light hits it just right you see this beautiful hidden sparkle that gives the polish a multi-dimensional sheen. I own nothing else like this.

Bag of Rocks is described by Pahlish as a "clear base topped with a mix of gunmetal and chartreuse glitters in hex/squares/circles accented by a subtle olive green shimmer."

As always, Pahlish's glitter formula is perfection. I used just the brush to do my gradient and then one thick-ish coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top.. The square glitters have a very slight reflective curl, but they do not feel curled at all. How does that work? I don't know. All I know is I love this. It's a different take on Fall and Halloween plus I have nothing like this in my stash.

So what do you think? You can purchase your own duo here.
Keep your cuticles moisturized, fall is dry!
