Enchanted Polish April 2014 Swatch And Review

Howdy all!  Are you enjoying your week so far?  I'm hoping this week will blow by fast.  To pass the time, I'm in the need of retail therapy, although I'm a day late for the Friends and Family sales that finished on Monday via Saks and Tory Burch.  Go figure I'd want a pair of TB shoes once the sale is already over.  A good hint to savvy shoppers - make friends with a Nordstrom sales associate so that you can get inside scoops on sale inventory and special deals.  I'm hoping my Nordys SA will come through for me and be able to pricematch the FnF sale despite being a day late!

April is coming to an end(already!) and I haven't had a chance to wear Enchanted Polish's monthly namesake polish.  This particular month's shade is a gorgeous dusty periwinkle blue holo that is completely fitting of the season.  I thought it was going to be really sheer after the first coat, but the characteristic buttery smooth Enchanted formula kicked in during the second coat and I was able to get complete coverage.  No issues with streaking or balding of course, and I used no topcoat in these pics.

I always have a difficult time capturing light colored holo flares when taking pics indoors, but hopefully you can see how prominent they are.  I'm sure they'll glow in sunlight and I'll be staring at them while driving.  I think the shade is very unique as well, it's not often I see a periwinkle blue holo, versus the standard aqua, teal blue, or sky blue holo.  I'm glad that Enchanted is finally moving towards presaling these darlings and making it much more accessible to polish enthusiasts.  For now, I'm content to adding a new Enchanted once a month - it seems more budget friendly to me in that I don't have to feel the need to buy up a collection from another line.  Instead I only have to buy a new Enchanted once a month and be confident that it won't already be a dupe in my collection.  Is there a line of holos that you obsessively collect?
