The Venetian Duo

We're halfway to the weekend!!


Sounds like a good day to talk about polish ;)

Recently, Pahlish and Elevation Polish collaborated and came out with the limited edition Venetian Duo.  


This duo consists of "The Wayfarer" (Pahlish), a mix of ultra chrome and platinum flakes with iridescent glitters, and "The Merchant's Son" (Elevation), an aqua turquoise thermal with green micro shimmer.  I did not catch the thermal shift in my photos, partially because I'm lazy, but mostly because it's still too dang hot out here to properly photograph the shift before the cold state changed back to warm.  C'mon, Fall!!




 



Did a big ole order from Ali Express at the beginning of the month and all the nail art accessories are starting to come in, so I've been playing ^_^  

The application of both polishes was super smooth.  The Merchant's Son was a "thicker" polish but still applied smoothly and leveled out very nicely.  I'm wearing two coats in the photos above.  The Wayfarer spread out evenly and gave me some great coverage - also shown in two coats.  Overall, it's a fantastic duo!  And the thermal shift is very strong and looks beautiful with the topper.  Wish I could have gotten a good picture of it >.<  Damn you Phoenix heat!!

The duo is sold out on the Elevation site, but IS still available on the Pahlish site here :)

What do you think of this duo?  Did you pick one up yourself?

  18. I've been on the fence about this one. I almost ordered it last week and then changed my mind. While I love the finish on the Elevation half of the duo, I have other flakies (including on from Pahlish) that are too similar. I'm trying to cut down on buying polishes that are similar.

  20. Beautiful swatches! They are beautiful in their own right but they compliment each other nicely as well! I think I am ready for warmer colors though so I'm not sure I'll be picking it up.
