"Petrichor: the scent of rain on dry earth, or the scent of dust after rain."
Now that's the smell of one amazing holo, dusty or not. I daresay Petrichor's bottle will NOT get dusty due to the numerous times I shall be sporting it in the future. Pretty Jelly creator Liz describes Petrichor as "a taupe/grey holo with purple undertones." It's all true. Oh, and don't forget that rainbow that's pretty much everywhere you look.
It may be a smell, but the word petrichor brings to mind a carved stone gargoyle, brought to life by evil forces to wreak havoc on the streets of Tokyo...PETRICHORRRRRR!! Yes, I watched Space Giants as a youth.
The slightly enigmatic color(s) of Petrichor looks quite earthy and stony to me. This is another one of those tricky ones where it looks like a respectable taupe and then explodes into multi-colored madness at the turn of your wrist. :) I applied three hassle-free coats of this prismatic beauty for the photos. *Sigh*
What do you all think of Petrichor? You don't see this color every day. It's hard to define and has ME written all over it. :D
Pretty Jelly polishes are 5-free and are available on Etsy, Mei Mei's Signatures, and Edgy Polish. Go check out Liz's beautiful creations!
Thanks for stopping by, and have a lovely day! :)
That's gorgeous! The holo is so strong too.ReplyDelete
Very strong...I really love it. And the color is unusual too! <3Delete
It is definitely a strange-beautiful colour! I like the rainbows, so pretty :)ReplyDelete
Strange-beautiful. I like that! I am always drawn to colors (non-colors) like this one. One day I'll figure out why... :)Delete
Hi Melissa - you did a gorgeous job showing all those rainbows - great pictures!!! I am certainly with you - Petrichor looks like made for you (another one) and while I totally see those Gargoyles, I so totally smell the air when the forst drops of rain hit earth.../ <3ReplyDelete
Thank you dear! <3 Oh, I'm so glad I chose some good ones for me. I'll tell you, I'm wearing Petrichor today, and it's quite the chameleon. Very unpredictable. I hate that in people but love it in my polish! :PDelete
Ahhhh, isn't it though?? <3ReplyDelete
Oh my. I need this. Immediately.ReplyDelete
Made me LOL.Delete
Well I'll be darned... a dark neutral holo that is still crazy sparkly. So long no-buy intentions!!! It looks fantastic on you! :)ReplyDelete
Exactly!! Isn't it a beautiful non-color color? :) I just love it. And thank you. <3Delete
So one of my favorite things about holos is how certain base colors flash different rainbows and this one's got a strong violet purple, the likes of which I don't recall ever having seen. Another thing I love about certain holos is the ability of the rainbow to obscure any vestiges of the actual base color. Is this nude? Is it grey? Taupe? Lavender? And the answer, of course, is YES.ReplyDelete
This is another one that made me think of you. :) It's so unusual...I remember when Liz first posted the new spring/summer holos on the PJ Facebook page, she asked which one was everybody's favorite. I answered "Petrichor!" :) It's just so weird and stony-looking. Like something from a sci-fi fantasy. <3Delete
Petrichor is awesome. I have never seen a shade like this and I want it. It reminds me of a volcano, maybe the dark bits floating around the lava but maybe that's just the name working on me :-) You wear these Pretty Jellys so well! I took a gander at her store and immediately jotted down a wish list!!ReplyDelete
I know...see what I mean about it looking so earthy and all? You'd love Petrichor! I hope you give Pretty Jelly a try! I love my Pretty Jelly polishes. <3Delete
wow thank you so much for showing*.*ReplyDelete
this is such an amazing color, i love the holo <3to me it looks like a mauve/taupe/lavener mix and is absolutely gorgeous
It really is gorgeous and hard to define, but I love a color that you can't quite define!! Thanks for commenting! :)Delete
