Bear Pawlish: Peek-A-Boo, Envious, Bowties Are Cool & Maleficent Swatches & Review
Hey guys! Do you remember my Best of 2014 event from a few months back? If so, you’ll remember that Bear Pawlish swooped in and dominated many of the top spots in many of the categories. I was so intrigued because although I’d vaguely heard of the brand, I had never tried any for myself. I’d either been missing out on a hidden gem of a brand that everyone seemed to know but me or someone rigged the voting. I figured it to be the former and decided I needed to try some out immediately. I promptly ordered the polishes I’m showing you today. Did they live up to the hype? Let’s see!
“Peek-A-Boo” is a bright-almost-neon Barbie pink with a subtle but linear holographic effect. Great formula. Applies like a dream. 2 coats.
“Envious” is an emerald green with a subtle but linear holographic effect. Gorgeous shade of green. Like a true sparkling emerald jewel. 2 coats.
“Bowties Are Cool” is an electric blue with a subtle but linear holographic effect. It appears that there is VNL in the photos but I didn’t notice it in real life. 2 coats.
“Ultra Violet” is a obviously linear blue-toned violet. This one has a bit more of a jelly formulation than the others but ended up being my most favorite and the most holo. 2 coats.
These are very pretty but I don’t think they are the be-all-and-end-all of holographic nail polishes. There are many brands out there that have a comparable product so I don’t quite see the hubbub or the reason the brand was voted the BEST of 2014 in certain categories. That being said, I can appreciate any polish with a beautiful color, a nice formula and a sparkling finish and these have all of those attributes. I think it’s a brand I will need to try more of in the future and I look forward to seeing more from them.
