Pahlish My Oblivion
Jenn, one of my readers, asked if I could swatch Pahlish My Oblivion, and of course I can! It just takes a while to get around to it, but finally I managed to squeeze it in. ;)
My Oblivion has a royal blue jelly base with various sizes and shapes of holographic gold glitter. It looks a little similar Toxic and Timeless, but T&T has a more teal base with yellow and blue glitters.
I used four coats to get My Oblivion opaque, I thought I was done after three coats, but the fourth coat really made a difference and made it deeper and more alive. The formula was a bit tricky, I had a hard time putting it on without getting it all over my skin and cuticles. It’s not because it’s runny, rather the opposite. The polish felt kinda “bouncy”, it was difficult getting it close to the cuticle to create the gap, and it seemed like it pulled away from the skin when I moved the brush over the nail. I decided to just paint into the skin instead, and rather do cleanup to get a nice gap. It was easy enough with my trusted e.l.f. concealer brush and pure acetone.
To get this mani smooth, I used two generous coat of Nail Pattern Boldness Glitter Food (which dries matte) and one thick coat of Seche Vite for shinyness. The mani is totally smooth and glasslike a day after application, so it seems like Glitter Food really works!
