The story of Pahlish Train Underwater from the creator:
"Train Underwater is named after the Bright Eyes song "Train Underwater" The actual lyric that I had in mind was "you were born inside of a raindrop, and I watched you falling to your death" and it reminded me of the sparkle that you see when rain is falling onto a puddle! I wanted to capture the clear blue base of water with the idea of a sparkling explosion every time a raindrop hit a puddle. Toxic and Timeless is from the same song, but I went with a polluted water vibe for some contrast!"
I'll have Toxic and Timeless for you soon :)
Artistic picture - it's so pretty!
Look at that bottle full of glitter. This is only two coats with a few coats of top coat. Like most heavy glitter, it is a little top coat hungry.
I got all literal and stamped waves using China Glaze Sci-Fi with XL-A.
No sun, totally overcast so it makes the finish look almost matte.
If you love blue, purple, sparkle, glitter or trains...this is a must have! I think it's a must have. Also, I didn't post the story behind Pianos Filled with Flames with the pictures earlier this week. Here is it's story:
"The name comes from the Neutral Milk Hotel song "Holland, 1945" The specific lyric is "Now she's a little boy in Spain, Playing pianos filled with flames" The whole song has a frantic kind of vibe that I love and I wanted to capture that in a bottle. The secret scoop is that all of the Pahlishes happen that way! I'll just be sitting at my desk, usually working on homework or editing a counseling tape and listening to music and something in the song will stick out to me and catch my attention. So I try to let my mind wander and think about the lyric and the mood of the song and if it's a good day a Pahlish idea is born! It's really weird, if I sit down at my work table and say "something cool is going to happen with this glitter today" it usually doesn't. The great ideas seem to catch me off guard and interrupt whatever else I'm up to, lol."
I love hearing the stories behind these. Especially when they have so much insight! This one was particularly poignant for me.
Have a wonderful day! ✿
