Pahlish Toxic and Timeless
Chaosophia wanted to see Pahlish Toxic and Timeless swatches, and I guess great minds think alike, because that was the polish I had already put on my nails!
T&T has a seaweed green jelly base with small iridescent glitter, large blue/lime/chartreuse hex and blue/chartreuse bars. It’s such an awesome glitterbomb, just looking at the bottle makes me kinda breathless. It’s like staring into a parallel galaxy.
I decided not to layer this over anything, because I wanted it to look as deep and glittery as it does in the bottle. This was achieved with three coats of T&T on its own. Now, this was challenging to apply, to say the least. Because of the sheer amount of glitter in the base, the consistency of the polish was more like oatmeal. I had to get creative to get an even application, so there was a lot of dabbing and pushing around even with cuticle sticks.
I added a bunch of thinner to the bottle (two big droppers full of Seche Restore) after doing this mani, and it looks like it would apply much better now. I rather prefer it to be too thick though, it’s easier to thin it than to thicken a polish that’s too thin with sinking glitter.
