This will be a bit of a different post – Melissa and I are both posting our swatches so you can see how different lighting, skin tone, angles and everything in between can make a polish look different. Settle in for the long haul. We have swatches, and macros, and gradients. Oh my!
First up is Enchanted Polish June 2015.
Terra – These polishes are mysteries until they show up at your door and June is the highlight of the year for me. This is a perfect pink holo polish that beautifully covered in one coat. My photos show one coat plus top coat.
Melissa – June 2015 is also the highlight of the year for me with the EP monthly mysteries. I love pink, I love one coaters, and this particular shade of pink flatters my skin tone. I used an LED daylight for lighting.
Terra – July is a very light blue-grey polish with a gorgeous holo throughout. It’s definitely pulling more grey on my skin. Again, one coat of polish with top coat.
Melissa – On my skin tone, July looked much more blue. It’s funny because when Terra and I were discussing it, I told her it looked grey on me. But once we compared swatches, it was definitely more blue. I used two coats of polish to cover patches and, again, an LED light. The last picture is with flash (because the sun refuses to shine where I live).
Terra – August just grabbed me because, well, purple. I’m a sucker for anything purple.
Melissa – Of the three monthlies, August is the one that I was least excited for. I like purples well enough but find it’s the colour that I am least drawn to. This purple, though? Yeah. Love. It does pull MORE purple on me than on Terra. It’s creamier and dustier than I have come to expect from Enchanted Polish, so it was the dark horse of the collection for me. I actually really like it. One coat, LED light, and flash for the last picture.
And just for the heck of it, here’s all three Enchanted Polish monthlies together in a sponged gradient. Because we felt we just hadn’t shown you enough pictures today.
Enchanted Polish will be having a scheduled pre-sale this Sunday for four never before released colours. Check out www.enchantedpolish.com for more details.
Check back on Friday when we look at comparisons of these polishes with others.
