Deborah Lippmann, Some Enchanted Evening
This is quite possibly the girliest manicure I've done in a really long time! It made my roommate think of valentine's day cards. It makes me think of the nonpareils on cupcakes. This is almost a little too darling for me every day, but it was cute. :)
Lippmann's Some Enchanted Evening is a clear base filled with pink square and hexagonal glitter, and applies quite sparsely: the above image is two coats of the stuff. It seems impossible,or at least, really time and polish consuming to attempt making this opaque. Related reviews and my own experience with it led me to put it on over a basic white the way I would with a normal layering polish. I didn't take any pictures of it, but I liked it very well when it was just one coat; I think that would be the way I would normally wear this polish color.
It was weird--while I was wearing this polish out, I noticed that some pieces of the small glitter seemed to take on holo properties. I couldn't quite catch it on camera, but on the eye some speckles gleam with a strong rainbow sheen that changes color with different angles. It makes me love this polish color more--by no means is Some Enchanted Evening unique, but details like that make me appreciate this one.
I also have to admit that I love the name.
Overall, I have to admit that I'm impressed with the All That Jazz collection! All three of them are keepers, and despite all being glitters, I think that the things that the colors are appropriate for allows the three to be more versatile than expected. These are keepers for sure; thank goodness!
