Pahlish Confectioner's Castle Duo
for Black Friday 2015

This duo. What is that meme going around on Facebook? I just can't EVEN! You  know I love cremes and when I first got the package the other day I immediately tried on Gingerbread Maker. Well, it was really cold that day and I thought OH NO it's gloopy! And her last creme was so awesome. I was bummed. Then I thought maybe it might be that I didn't let it get to room temp. So I tried it the next morning and it was perfect. HUGE SIGH of relief! So...moral of the story, let the polishes get to room temperature before using!

Gingerbread Maker - This one is a medium berry wine creme. The formula and application were great (once I let it warm up) and I used 2 coats and one coat of top coat for the photos. *My pale cool-toned skin pulls out the purple/berry in this one more. Your mileage may vary.


Gumdrop Rooftop - this one is a clear-based topcoat with a mix of iridescent glitters, ultrachrome flakes and scattered holographic flakes. I think I can honestly say this one is probably my favorite topper. Like ever. The shifty flakes and holo flakes? Perfection. I used this one over several manis just to show you how versatile it is.

First, the blurred out color-shiftiness (and a doggie photobomb I just couldn't leave out)...

For the photos above it was layered over Gingerbread Maker.

And the rest of the photos over Gingerbread Maker...


And over some other shades. This is over Whomping Willow...

Over black...

Over cream (OPI My Vampire is Buff) to show the details...

And finally, over a couple of mixed up manis: black and cream and black, cream and Gingerbread Maker "skittles"...


See what I mean??? What do you think? Will you be grabbing this Duo on Black Friday?
