Pahlish Dark Paradise Swatches & Review

When I first saw Dark Paradise on in the Pahlish shop I almost didn't add it to my order.  There was part of me that said 'well, I own purple jelly polish and I own colour shifting glitter, so I should be able to recreate this with what I already have'.  Something convinced me that I needed it anyways.  The flat shipping rate to Canada definitely helped too.  Today is the first time I've worn it and let me tell you, I am so happy that I decided to buy it because it is amazing!!!

Dark Paradise is a dark blurple jelly packed with a multitude of colour shifting glitter in various shapes and sizes as well as fine purple micro glitter.  When it's on your nails the copper side of the glitter is predominant but if you look at it from a steep angle it changes to a bright turquoise. You can see the shift best in the bottle shot with the copper showing in the center and the turquoise showing at the edges.

The formulas was easy to work with and I got the polish opaque after three coats.  It also dried very smoothly and I only added a thin top coat to help prevent chipping.  Now let me bombard you with swatch pictures.

Photos show three coats of Dark Paradise with one coat of CND Super Shiney top coat in natural sunlight.  I love the shimmer in this polish.  It's not something that I could have replicated by layering polishes I already own.  The larger colour shifting glitters just appear to float in the jelly base.  The overall effect is just beautiful.  If you want a bottle of your own... which you probably should after seeing these swatches, check out their Etsy shop at https://www.etsy.com/shop/pahlish.  They also post sneak peeks, sales and coupon codes on their facebook page so be sure to like it so you're in the know for the next deal.  What was a polished you almost passed up that turned out to be absolutely amazing?
