Wheel X10: Glitters from Pahlish

I'm still not back into my usual routine after vacation, so this Nail Wheel Wednesday post is going up later than I'd like. It's still Wednesday, though, so I've got that going for me. Swatching The City of Lights made me think of other Pahlish shades I've loved, which led to this wheel, with twenty glitters from the brand. I miss the days when glitter was queen of the indie polish scene; fortunately I stocked up so I can relive those times whenever I like. I've got some really old Pahlish bottles here; I'm sure I've missed some versions of their label over the years when budget and distraction took me away from indies for periods of time, but that's how life works. I'll just enjoy the pretties I do have.

(all have clear topcoat in addition to coats noted below)

1. Pahlish Glittoris (3 coats)
2. Pahlish Combustible Lemon (3)
3. Pahlish Fire in the Taco Bell (3) [I love this combination, with the warm red orange base and the hot pink and purple glitters]
4. Pahlish The Sea is Boiling Hot (2)
5. Pahlish Sitting in a Tin Can (3) [some fishing necessary for bigger glitters]
6. Pahlish Endless Static Sea (3) [some fishing necessary]
7. Pahlish Dark Parades (2)
8. Pahlish The Stars Look Very Different Today (3) [some fishing necessary]
9. Pahlish Confetti Cannon (2)
10. Pahlish Ocean Gone Wrong (3)
11. Pahlish My Oblivion (2) [some fishing necessary]
12. Pahlish ? (3) [some fishing necessary, and ? is what the label on the bottom actually says]
13. Pahlish Toxic and Timeless (3) [NO fishing necessary]
14. Pahlish Crocodile Rock (3) [this looks like Spring to me, when the trees are just leafing out and the first flowers are blooming ... well, midwestern spring; our flowers here in the mountains don't bloom that early]
15. Pahlish Bag of Rocks (3) [this one survived the great polish breakage incident with just some cosmetic damage to the bottle; its partner from The Great Pumpkin duo, Most Sincere Pumpkin Patch, was not as lucky]
16. Pahlish Jabberwocky (3) [NO fishing necessary]
17. Pahlish Italian Cream Soda (3) [my favorite kind of gold, pale and paired with holo]
18. Pahlish ...Stays in Vegas (3)
19. Pahlish Fireflies Under the Pines (3)
20. Pahlish All Blown Out (3) [if I were designing a custom glitter topper for myself, it might look just like this]
