Some Enchanted Evening is the second polish I received in my GMA Steals and Deals order. I'd been lemming this one since it came out a few years ago, but I never got around to paying full-price for it, despite my love of Deborah Lippmann's hex glitter polishes. Once I saw it at half-price, however, I had to make it mine. :)
Deborah Lippmann's website describes this one as being a salmon pink glitter, but in my opinion, it's not exactly salmon. When I think of "salmon pink", I think of a color that leans a bit more orange than this glitter. To me, this is a true rose-pink glitter. I knew I wanted this polish based on swatches, but in person, it is it even prettier than it looks online. It is so light and pretty and girly that I wanted to pair it with a base equally as pretty. As I was still feeling inspired by yesterday's sponged gradient post, I decided to give that same application a try for today's manicure.
For the base, I used 3 coats of Color Club Coastal Creme, a true cream creme polish, and I sponged Jessica Cosmetics Flirtation over top. To create the gradient, I used a plastic sheet (a sheet protector -BIG thank to the Nailsaurus for that fantastic idea - and a round makeup sponge). First, I mixed Coastal Cream and Flirtation on my plastic sheet and then applied that over my nail using the sponge. I then sponged only Flirtation on the tips of my nails, making sure to apply it a little thicker as I got to my tips (hence, the gradient). Once it was dried and sealed with topcoat, I then applied one coat of Some Enchanted Evening and another coat of topcoat.
This one is super pretty in real life, and I'm a little afraid it's just not translating well in pictures. Nonetheless, I think I may be addicted to sponged gradients. It's the new glitter tips. LOL. :P
If you are interested in any of the polishes used for this manicure, you can purchase Some Enchanted Evening at just about any website that sells Deborah Lippmann polishes. Retail is $18. Jessica Flirtation is now available on Jessica's website for $7.50. Coastal Creme came out several years ago with Color Club's Yacht Club collection and it appears to now be discontinued. However, you can still find it online in the $4-6 range.
I purchased Some Enchanted Evening through GMA's Steals and Deals event. Jessica Flirtation was sent to me for review. Coastal Creme was also purchased by me. The above links are not affiliate links.
