Enchanted Polish Mercy Swatch And Review

Purchased

Happy mid-week Wednesday!  I was hoping to have a day off this week to get some last minute errands done before the holiday, but it looks like I'll have to go into work every day whether I want to or not.  I haven't put up our tree and I want to get some last minute decorations.  Fortunately, my thoughtful brother, knowing how busy I am these days, sent me a live decorated evergreen in the mail today!  All I have to do is plug it in and keep it watered.  How sweet is that?  Are you ready for the holidays yet?

I have a short but sweet swatch for you today, and that's Mercy from Enchanted Polish latest restock.  Initially, when looking at the bottle I did a little inward groan because it looks like another purple holo.  They are like dime a dozen these days, and being an Enchanted, it's a hefty price to pay for your average run of the mill purple holo.  Thankfully, once on the nail, the true color reveals itself as a luscious dusty lavender purple.  The formula is equally as stellar and I used only one coat in these pics.  To finish I used a layer of topcoat to add shine.

I think the muted dustiness of this purple really sets it apart from other purple holos.  I'm really impressed with the recent releases of Enchanted Polish because it seems she's stepped up her game when it comes to creating the perfect applying polish.  The formula has been smooth and pigmented with just the right viscosity to apply with minimal cleanup.  That's the kind of polish I like to turn to with my hectic lifestyle.  What polish do you turn to when you're in a rush?  Cream, shimmer, holo?  Add glitter to your current mani?
