Pahlish An Caisteal Ruadh

Hi loves! Today I have a post that might feel like a tease to you. It features a polish that isn't available anymore, but I did wear it in real life and still felt it deserved a spotlight on my blog. I'm showing you Pahlish An Caisteal Ruadh from the Fall 2014 Royal Reverie collection. This was actual my first introduction to Pahlish as I bought the entire collection, but never got around to swatching it for you guys.



Doesn't that look promising?



As I mentioned, An Caisteal Ruadh was part of the Royal Reverie collection that consisted of 8 gorgeous shades. La Dernière Reine is another one of those beauties! For swatches of all of them, make sure to check my friend Ida from Ida Nails It ^^.



Formula-wise, this polish wasn't amazing. It went on a bit patchy at first but after a second round of shaking, it went on better. Because the base is of a jelly consistency, I used 3 coats for proper opacity. The color deepens with each layer ending up a vampy dark red shade, with a gorgeous depth and squishy finish. The color is mostly like the first picture after the jump.




Besides a slightly iffy formula, I also experienced chipping within a day. But, truth be told, with a color this gorgeous, I am willing to put up with the downsides in order to enjoy those lovely flakies shimmering beneath the squishy surface!

Do you like this shade too? Tell me in the comments!
