E is For...... (A-Z Nail Challenge)


Couple of choices for this one, but of course, it had to be.....

Enchanted

At this moment in time, Enchanted's are possibly the most highly sought after Indie polish due to the minimal restocks - there is only a few places you can buy these including direct, and trust me when i say that they are sold within a minute - the whole nail world -not just the UK - is armed and ready to buy when a restock is announced (not me though, i have to admit, I've tried it a couple of times, and each time i get to pay the polish has gone from my cart and its a totally frustrating purchase  not enjoyable at all). All of my Enchanted's have come from people selling them on at a later date.  If you check prices on these things, they can range from £20 - £60 resale and for one, i don't think i can justify spending £60 on one polish, but i guess if you really want it, why not!

Anyway, today's letter is E, so yup, Enchanted.
I decided to use one of the Monthly releases, and chose May as its my birth month, i haven't blogged about it and its a gorgeous colour!


This is one of the nicest shades I've seen from Enchanted.  A gorgeous pinky violet scattered holo polish.  The holo, instead of detracting from the colour actually adds another level to it, so you can still appreciate the beautiful colour as it isn't swamped with too much holo.

It went on gorgeously, cannot fault it.  I used a base coat of Poshe, 2 coats of Enchanted and a top coat of Poshe - the top coat mainly due to the little heart diamantes on my ring finger, to help it stay on!


I added the little diamantes from Oriflame as a last thought, and think its adds a real cuteness to the mani.  Not completely straight (my bad, i didn't realise till i saw the pictures!!) but to glimpse at it, i can get away with it!! The little tub has a mixture of hearts, stars and round diamantes, still available for £3.95.


I think i might be the bearer of bad news, but monthly editions of Enchanted are only available for that month, so the chances of finding May could be quite slim - and could be quite costly if you find one, so i apologise for almost dangling a gorgeous carrot that you cant get!!

OK, one more letter down....onto F for the next.....eep....
