Pahlish Saint Glinda

Well, one good Pahlish for sure deserves another, especially with this big haul of Pahlish pretties looking right at me...

Saint Glinda is from Pahlish's recent Out of Oz collection, and was easily a must-have as soon as I saw swatch pics.  It was sheer but very self-leveling at one coat, and easily wearable that way if you like softer, more ethereal looks, but was nicely opaque in 2 smooth coats.

First off, it's loaded in fiery flakies that shift through all the colors of autumn - orange, copper, gold, purple.  Utterly gorgeous in shady/low light.

Next, it's a bit shifty.  Note that both the warmer orchid pinky purple and the cooler lavender purple in these pics is color accurate.  I think that's mostly a question of which aspect of this polish is in the forefront at any given time (flakes vs holo vs base color), but I think we all know how much I love things that are chameleonic.

And oh yes, it's a nicely scattered holo to boot, sparkling all over in brighter light.

Rating:  4 out of 5 stars.  Glinda has a dead perfect formula, staying exactly where I put it, with only minimal clean-up needed.  Edgewear appeared just a little faster than ideal (pretty typical for me and jelly bases), but no chipping.

Where to buy:  direct from Pahlish.
