BEAR PAWLISH Part II : Swatches, Review, and comparison

Hi there, my darlings! This is starting out to be an unusually busy week--I guess I should have figured there would be a million things to do before I left for India but...damn! There are more loose ends than there are hours in the day! Sigh. But anyway...let's talk about this afternoon's post! Today, I have for you my swatches of two more gorgeous holos from Bear Pawlish and a quick little comparison post!

Like the four I reviewed earlier HERE, I was super impressed with both the formula and application of these two holos--they went on smooth and creamy, without being streaky or patchy. All the swatches below show 2 smooth coats by itself. Alrighty, ready to take a peek at these?

Haloki is a gorgeous duochrome polish with a strong linear holographic finish. For the life of me, I couldn't pinpoint this color! Is it blue? Is it violet? Is it slate gray? Is it grayed blue? I don't know but it's gorgeous!

With flash!

UltraViolet is a stunning, bright purple polish with a strong linear holographic finish. This is the almost-twin of Maleficent and just as breath-taking!

With flash!

And now we come to a quick, little comparison of Maleficent and UltraViolet. When I looked at these two beauties in the bottle, they looked EXACTLY the same. EXACTLY. I just could not tell them apart. But when I swatched them on a nail wheel, there was a subtle but noticeable difference. Ultra Violet is shown above and you can find my swatches of Maleficent HERE. My conclusions--while both "blurple" (blue-purple), Ultraviolet leans more purple while Maleficent leans more of a bright blue--Ultraviolet is a bright purple with blue undertones while Maleficent is a bright blue with purple undertones. Phew! Close, super close, but not the same! And the holographic effect? Both very strong but UltraViolet may have the teensiest edge. See for yourself!

With flash!

So there you have it, my darlings! Two more beauties from Bear Pawlish--if you were undecided between UltraViolet and Maleficent, I hope this helped. You can find them both HERE among a ton of other gorgeous holos for the super affordable price of $10 for a full-size, 0.5 mL bottle!
