Comparison: Recent Mint Holos // Cirque Colors vs Emily de Molly vs Pahlish

Hi everyone! Today I have a quick comparison of Cirque Colors Winter Bloom, Emily de Molly’s False Destiny and Weightless from Pahlish’s newest collection. These are all a little different, but enough to justify you owning all or even two of them? Keep reading to judge for yourself.

I have all my recent nail mail on a card table in my nail room. I just wore Cirque Colors Winter Bloom yesterday and I had Emily de Molly’s False Destiny sitting there that I had just ordered on Black Friday, and I just got Pahlish’s new polish Weightless in the mail yesterday. So I’ve bought all three of these polishes since Black Friday.

The bottle pictures were taken with flash and the swatches on paper are shown in the sun. I was moving the paper from left to right to show off the pink and sometimes gold shimmer you get. The swatches go in the same order as the bottles and they are one generous coat of polish.

Comparison: Mint green holos

The descriptions from the makers make them all sound quite different:

  • Cirque Colors Winter Bloom, “A “blushing” mint green with holographic flakes”
  • Emily de Molly False Destiny, “A light green holo with purple to gold shifting shimmer and silver ultra holographic micro glitter”
  • Pahlish Weightless, “Silvery mint green jelly with pink shimmer and scattered holographic”.

I find them all to be pretty similar, but there are differences. All three seem to have the same or very, very similar mint/seafoam base colors. They all have the same or very similar pink shimmer. Only one description mentioned it shifting to gold, but all three polishes did that at a certain angle. The Cirque Colors is the most different since it has those “chunky” looking holographic flakes.  Emily de Molly’s has the smooth holographic pigment plus some additional green and holo micro glitter. So those are a little larger and will catch the light and sparkle just a little extra. The Pahlish just seems to have one uniform sized holographic pigment. I have not worn all three of these yet on the nails, I am basing this on my paper swatch only.

They are all three gorgeous polishes, but would you need all three? Probably not unless you are a green polish lover, or a collector like me. Let me know what you think, do you have a favorite?

Well, there we have it!
Thanks so much for stopping by!

The polish in this post is from my own collection and was purchased by me.
