Enchanted Time Travel

I debated making March an entire month of blue/green/aqua polishes (aquamarine is the birthstone of March!), and while that didn't completely end up striking my fancy for the whole 31 days of the month, there were a lot of pretty polishes on this end of the spectrum.

Enchanted Polish Time Travel is a TARDIS-blue base (somewhere between navy and slate-teal), with a shimmer overlay that shifts from pinky-purple (above) to turquoise-green (below).

This being an Enchanted, there's also a nice holographic effect, this time in a fine-milled sparkle that seems more scattered than linear to me.

The shimmer flash was readily apparent in both lower light, where it looked like a duochrome shift, and in brighter lighting, where it provided a nice flash in the middle of the holo.

Though I usually have great luck with Enchanteds, the formula on this one was a little tricky.  It was slightly thinner and more sticky than I'm used to for her polishes, and I had tipwear and a minor chip pretty quickly.  I'm wearing 2 coats here, and because it dries satin a layer of topcoat is a must.

Inspired by some spectacular double-stamping using Creative Shop 28 that was posted in my stamping FB group, I grabbed the same plate and first stamped the seaweed image in EDM green, then made decals for the seahorses using El Corazon First Kiss and BP gold.

Rating:  3 out of 5 stars.  It's a pretty color that I'm sure I'll be giving another try to in the future.
