Pahlish September Duo - Darling Heart Duo

*These products are Cruelty Free 

Are you ready for more Pahlish polish???

How about a preview of The September Duo? It's called the Darling Heart Duo and it's fantastic! I'm really excited to show them to you!

This duo will be available starting Friday, September 6, 2013.

The Duo consists of Tenderest Touch, a greyed out purple creme with shimmer and micro-flakes and Darkest of Marks, a clear-based glitter topper with various shapes and sizes of orange/copper and violet glitters with violet shimmer.

Continued after the jump...

Tenderest Touch is a grey-based muted purple shade with lavender/violet shimmer and what appears to be deep purple and lavender.violet micro-flakes.

I used two coats of this one for full opacity and one coat of Poshe top coat for the photos. This one dries to that semi-matte or satin finish I love so much. No issues at all to report. The formula was smooth and self-leveling. I recommend two light coats for best results. This one is so much more complex than I could describe. The photos tell it all!

Artificial lighting...

Indirect natural lighting...


Darkest of Marks is a clear-based glitter topper with violet shimmer, violet metallic glitters and orange or copper glitters in various shapes and sizes. Again, more complex than I can describe so please check out the macros.

I used this one in several ways - over Tenderest Touch on an accent nail, over bright orange on an accent nail, over violet creme on an accent nail and over black for my full mani.  No issues to report. Everything came out of the bottle easily, spread nicely on the nail and laid perfectly flat.

Over Tenderest Touch on an accent nail...

Over a plain black creme for my full mani:

Over a plain violet pink/purple creme on my accent nail...

And finally over a bright orange on an accent nail...

This one was hard to describe so I wanted to be sure and show you macros over a few colors so you could work out what all is in it too.


What do you think of this duo? Both shades are SO complex! Tenderest Touch may just be my favorite Pahlish polish yet!

The September Darling Heart Duo is set to be released on Friday, September 6, 2013 on their new Big Cartel site. Please check with Pahlish's Facebook page for times, links and other details. This duo will retail for $15.00 - priced as a pair and only available as a pair throughout the month of September.

  1. I love both of these! I'm impressed!

  2. Darkest of Marks looks really cool. Over black, it reminds me of You Go Ghoul from KB Shimmer - but with the brown square glitters. Perfect for Halloween!

  3. I love Darkest of Marks over black! I will have my post up on these shortly - such a beautiful pair!
