Lucky yous! You get 2 posts tonight! I really wanted to share this one as quickly as possible today but life kept me busy. I actually wish I could share a picture with you so you could see that i have my laptop wi-fi tethered to my iPhone and am sitting in the parking lot at my eldest son's soccer practice. Hey, a bloggers gotta do what a bloggers gotta do! So this post is to share the newest collection form Parallax Polish called the Brain Scan collection! There are 7 polishes in this collection and each are available in 3 finishes: matte, scattered holo or soft linear holo. Erin did a jumble bag and sent a mixture of colors and finishes out and I was very happy with the colors and finishes in my package. I'm also looking forward to seeing what other bloggers received! I will note that one of the matte finish polishes I received, Brocas, was having pigment dissolving and drying issues (you can see Erin's post on it HERE) so I am only showing you 6 of the 7 colors. The Brain Scan collection will be available tomorrow, 8/29! Make sure to follow Parallax Polish on Facebook and Instagram for ht exact time and price of the collection. Now let's look at polish!
Up first is one of my favorites from the collection, On-Off Cells. This is a soft lime green bordering on yellow with a subtle linear holo effect. It reminds me of Mountain Dew a little, but an almost pastel version of it. The color is both wearable and fun! The formula and application were both great. On-Off Cells was very easy to apply and covered perfectly in 2 coats. No topcoat used.
Corpus Callosum is a vibrant lime green with a scattered holo finish. It's a great color that isn't neon but it's definitely bright. The scattered holo finish is very light, not an in your face holo twinkle. I do wish it were more prominent but I still quite enjoy the finish. The formula of Corpus Callosum was a bit more sheer than the last so I used 3 coats to built it up to full coverage. No topcoat used.
Well hello pink! This is Amygdala; a creamy, deep pink, subtle linear holo. She's a real beauty! Again, I am getting pastel vibe from this holo and I totally dig it. The shade of pink is perfection...I like that it's just slightly darker and not neon. Formula and applicant of Amygdala were both fantastic. I used 2 coats for full coverage and no topcoat.
Leaning a bit more to the purple side of the rainbow is Hippocampus. This is actually more of a radiant orchid shade of purple with a scattered holo finish. Nothing to report about the formula or application here. Everything was superb. Though as mentioned in Corpus Callosum, I wish the holo were a bit more holo. I used 2 coats of Hippocampus for full coverage and no topcoat.
Nystagmus was my other favorite in the group I received. Sure I have loads of silver holos, but I don't have a silver holo like this! Nystagmus is a very soft shade of silver with a subtle linear holo. I don't know how it's possible but this is a pastel silver. The formula was uber creamy and covered so nicely. Application was perfect in 2 coats. No topcoat needed.
And the 6th polish I have to share and the only matte from my group (aside from Brocas which I mentioned way up there in the beginning) is Fusiform Gyrus. This is a neon orange matte finish polish. It's pretty awesome. My photos are making it a bit darker than it actually is because it's really so vibrant and bright my camera was like "oh hellz no." The formula and application were both really fantastic. I do wish Fusiform Gyrus was a bit more matte though - I feel that it's more a rubber finish. Regardless it's pretty freaking cool! I used 2 coats for full coverage and no topcoat.
