Pahlish Paper Flowers

This week found me headed off to a business trip in sunny south Texas, calling for a nice professional color... with a sparkle.  I've recently snagged a few Pahlish LEs, and the taupe Paper Flowers fit the bill.

Paper Flowers is a January 2016 Bespoke Batch (one and done pour) in a warm cocoa taupe color with a linear holo and bronze flash.

Since I was out on bizness this week, I sadly have few "real" pics of this polish.  It was a little thick (Pahlish tends to need a couple of drops of thinner from me), but wore nicely without chipping while out of town, and that's rather important.

The bronze flash is aaaaaalmost duochromatic, shading somewhere closer to coppery at angled lighting, but I was wholly unable to capture that.  The holo is plenty present indoor or out.  For some reason, this polish has a tendency to separate out quicker than most (apparently the base is army green tinted?), but re-mixes with just the usual shake.

Rating:  a solid 3 of 5 stars, a lovely neutral with a little edge to it.

Where to buy:  keep your peepers peeled for Pahlish's every so often Bespoke Batch vault sales, where faves make a repeat visit.
