Pahlish: Hero of Hyrule

Pahlish, PR, Regular release

*Disclosure: PR samples- I received these polishes free of charge in exchange for photography.*

Release: 16 February 2020

5 polishes

A collection of shimmers inspired by the world of The Legend of Zelda

This collection has a sister polish in Breath of the Wild, Pahlish’s contribution to the February 2020 Polish Pickup.

Korok Forest

The green shimmer in this polish has a lovely (but soft) shift to peach. This is one of two polishes in this collection that streaks a bit. Be careful with application, and do your best to do even coats while working quickly.

3 coats + top coat

Ocarina of Time

This is a really lovely red-toned beige with red-gold shifting shimmer. It’s almost nude-ish for me…if it was a bit less red, it would be a true neutral on my skin. If you’re cooler-toned than me it won’t be very neutral. The formula was smooth and easy to use.

3 coats + top coat

Satori Mountain

Upon application, I thought this was a pretty raspberry, but as it dried it seemed to darken and intensify. So the final color is really quite intense and punchy, like a subdued hot pink. The formula was easy to use, and it is by far the most opaque of the whole collection.

2 coats + top coat

Song of Storms

This is by far the most glowy and shifty polish in the collection. The aqua-purple glow is very strong and almost eclipses the base violet color. The formula is sheerer than the others (makes sense considering how much stronger the shimmer is), but it is easy to work with.

3 coats + top coat

Zora’s Domain

Just the most perfect shade of sky blue ever, overlaid with pink-gold shifting shimmer. This is the other shade that was a bit streaky. Again, be careful during application and work quickly.

The overall color palette of this collection is so lovely. I’ll leave you with a skittle mani I did with all five shades:
