The original Toxic and Timeless is a sheer green (with teal undertones) jelly base filled with turquoise, blue and chartreuse hex glitters in all sizes as well as bar glitter. I don't care for bar glitter but if mixed with others I don't mind. I used to deal with highly confidential stuff in my work and have shredded for hours without an end so bar glitter reminds me forever of those everywhere sticking tiny paper snippets flying all over my office and sticking to my cloths.

Toxic and Timeless Version Two got modified by using smaller sized glitters and instead of the big chartreuse hex glitters you now find smaller square glitter in that color - well just have a look - I will list the differences I observed at the end of the post:

Now to the differences I observed in Version 2 compared to the original Toxic and Timeless:
- the base is more pigmented and leans more green than the original
- the consistency of Version 2 is more like a crelly versus the jelly
- the glitters used are smaller (except for the bar glitter)
- chartreuse square glitter versus the bigger hex glitter of the original

Final thoughts: Now if I am really honest (and what should keep me from THAT?) I have to admit that I like the original version better. The sheerer jelly base let the glitter spark and live a lot more than the more pigmented crelly base of Version 2. And then I do like those big chartreuse hex glitters, but then who knows, maybe they simply were not available anymore. By now the original version of Toxic and Timeless has sold out and bly me - I am so glad I could get myself into ordering it.
I ordered both of the Toxic and Timeless polishes with Pahlish Bigcartel e-shop here.
I hope I could give you a nice tour through the stock of Pahlish and its concept and seriously - if you haven't checked out that e-shop I invite you to take a sneak peak at least. The colors are restocked every Friday at 7 pm MST.
I look forward to reading your comments - thanks for visiting!!!
