I applied two to three coats of Pahlish ? Mystery Cream Polish over my regular Base Coat. The formula was typical Pahlish - slightly thin but not runny and easy to control. The first coat went on sheer and I already saw a challenge raising on the nail polish horizon getting this baby opaque. But trust Pahlish to come up with a thin yet build able and self leveling cream and to top it all - YELLOW! In my eyes they mastered this hurdle perfectly - this polish leveled itself out in front of my eyes and was totally opaque upon the second coat (if applied in medium thick layers) or the third coat (applied thinly). Having tried both versions, I definitely go for three thin coats. As usual the dry time with Pahlish ? was fast so getting a third coat on your nails is not a big steal of your time. And the high shine is just fantastic.
The bottom of the bottle:
Final thoughts: I am smitten by this take on yellow and while there are certainly more flattering colors for me out there, I find this totally summer appropriate and refreshing. I am so exited that more and more Indie nail polish creators start going on creams, something I missed in the past. And Pahlish certainly hit bulls eye with this creation at every aspect. Also I like the Mystery Polish section of Pahlish where you can get yourself a little suprise treat. This way I discovered this beautiful yellow which I probably would not have ordered if seen previously. By now have collected quite a number of them - hardly an order is placed without a bottle of ? in my cart ;-).
I ordered Pahlish ? Mystery Cream Polish with their own Bigcartel shop here.
I look forward to reading your comments - thanks for visiting!!!
