Do You Smell Smoke?: Pahlish Continually Smoldering

Hey everybody!  I hope you all have been doing well.  I've had a busy week at work because we're moving our office across town, and I've been so tired at night that I haven't had the juice to post anything. :/  But tonight, I have about one little sippy cup's worth of juice to show you this beautiful polish from Pahlish, Continually Smoldering, from The Great Gatsby Collection.


Pahlish Continually Smoldering

Please overlook the fact that my hand in the above picture looks like I've been playing with a tub of Country Crock and feast your eyes on this glittery and mysterious stuff.  Continually Smoldering is described as a "black jelly base with red shimmer, red dots, holographic red squares, and scattered iridescent orange hex."

You can see the holo glitter in the bottle shot.  I layered 2 coats Continually Smoldering over a coat of Sally Hansen Black Out, but you can wear it on its own.

I really love this polish...it's another one of those that is exactly as you picture it when you read the name.  When you look at it, it's like looking into a dying fire...it's dark and cold... and then you see the warm, glittery flicker.  I love black polishes period, but I love them even more when they have so much depth.


Burn, baby, burn!

I haven't seen the latest incarnation of The Great Gatsby, but my stepdaughter told me it had a rather peculiar soundtrack.  I'll just stick with the polish. :)  

The only downside to this polish is typing the name...I can't seem to stop typing "smokering."  Pahlish can be purchased on Etsy and Llarowe.

Thanks for stopping by, and have a lovely evening! :)

  1. Yep, it looks exactly like you explained - great job! I saw The Great Gatsby and it was really good! ...although, I haven't read the book - so it's probably NOTHING compared to the book.

    1. Thanks! :) Hannah said it really only had one major difference in it...but when she said it had Jay-Z music, I was like uh, I'll have to pass...I don't think there were rappers with the flappers...

    2. I'm not good at picking out who sings what (so didn't know it was Jay-Z), but I agree, the music was very "now" and didn't really go along with that time period. BUT, I thought it was kindof cool, in a way. I recommend it. How about I dare you to go see it and tell me what you think ;)

    1. YAY!! Never too many Melissas, right? Unless they go by "Missy", which has always been strictly forbidden as far as I'm concerned, LOLOL! :D And YES...I love dark and vampy glitter! It makes me happy.

  5. Country Crock, heheh... STOP PLAYING WITH YOUR FOOD, MELISSA!! rofl. I haven't seen the movie, either, but I'd like to. I'm totally not into period pieces but the fact that it's a Baz Luhrman compels me. The polish is gorgeous and I LOVE your ring!

    1. Heheh...thank you! I tried to be era-authentic. And what in the world...no period pieces?? I *totally* would have pegged you as a British drama gal...totally. Are you still having trouble getting into Downton Abbey? I was into that stuff ages before it was fashionable. I would say I was born in the wrong era, but Zoya hadn't been invented in 1815. :P

  7. Hi Melissa, your timing to show us Continually Smoldering is just perfect, Llatowe will restock it tonight (I hope) and I have been ogling it just some minutes ago longingly. Your photos are beautiful and this polish looks perfect on you. I hope your office move goes well!!! I moved offices over Christmas last year so I totally can envision the work you had to do on top of your daily tasks ;-) - I hope you will have a relaxing weekend <3
