PRESS SAMPLE: these were sent to me for an honest review

 

Hello lovely readers! We have another new collection to take a peek at today. I don’t know what it is about this month, but the makers are seriously bringing it! I have a desk full of polishes waiting for voicing over and posting and I must say, this month is fantastic for releases! Today I’m showing Pahlish’s newest Antiquity collection featuring two shimmers, two flakes, and two full coverage flakes. I love the inspiration here, so let’s dive right in!

 

Atlantis – bright turquoise cream with crushed gold flake

 

Swatches show two coats with topcoat. Formula is smooth and crelly like on application and builds up quickly.

Pompeii – fiery coral red with a mix of crushed gold flake and iridescent flakes

 

Swatches show two coats with topcoat. This is very vibrant and red hot in person, and the flakes give a ton of depth overall.

El Dorado – bright golden yellow with a mix of crushed gold flake and iridescent flakes

 

Swatches show two coats with topcoat. Formula feels similar to Pompeii with a crelly feel and strong squish factor. It is very easy to build up.

Fountain of Youth – periwinkle cream with a green to pink shifting glow

 

Swatches show three coats with topcoat. Formula is creamy and smooth but has a bit of squish to it. I’m sporting a nasty repair on my middle nail, so that third coat could have been needed for it.

Hanging Gardens – pale peach cream with crushed gold flake

 

Swatches show two coats with topcoat. Formula is similar to Atlantis, and builds up easy and smooth.

Alexandria – soft neon pink with rose glow

 

Swatches show three coats with topcoat. Formula applies very similar to Fountain of Youth. Overall, this has a lighter formula but builds up quickly. I’d suggest a third thin coat to really make it glow.
