This is Desert Sunset, another lovely holographic beauty from Enchanted Polish, and my pick for best transitional lacquer to take you from summer’s last hurrah to pumpkin spice season (sorry, Fall! I think that’s what we used to call it, right?) What gives Desert Sunset its multi-season versatility is the hot pink shimmer that runs throughout its holo depths – that shimmer plays off against the orange base, and depending on the quality of the light at any given moment, it can make the polish look a little peachy…or maybe melony. Also sort of pumpkiny. So at least three seasons’ worth of fruit right there! So a little more bang for your buck if you prefer to polish by the season (I don’t; it’s pretty much the Wild West of polishing around these parts.)
As always, all the usual greats about Enchanted’s products apply to Desert Sunset – easy peasy application, smooth eggshell finish, quick dry and terrific holo effect (although I almost always prefer holographic polishes in the shade; they show so much more depth and visual interest that way.)
Nicest of all, Enchanted recently seems to have revamped some of their more outdated e-tail practices, opening up this really wonderful brand to a wider audience of nail polish aficionado. Mad dashes to the cash (what some people refer to as “the Hunger Games of shopping”) have been replaced by pre-announced pre-orders. Everything is very orderly and cordial and refreshingly NORMAL – just the exchange of money for goods and/or services, and I freaking love it.
