Happy Monday! This is post is late because I’m lazy. I’m excited about this mani, though, because I don’t often use my Enchanted Polishes. I try not to feel bad about using discontinued or special polishes, but I feel bad about using the Enchanteds. I don’t want to use them up! This mani started as just a half-moon mani with May 2014, but I added a stripe of Ciaté’s Encore! for a little extra color. Let’s get started! All photos were taken in direct sunlight.
Most of my Enchanteds are used. This one is; it was one of the first ones I ever bought. At the time, I was just buying up whatever ones I could find that were under $20. I could never get in on the pre-orders or surprise restocks in time, so buying them used was always a better option, even if it sometimes cost a little more. I love orange, so I knew this was one I would want. Boyfriend’s birthday is in May, so there’s that, too.
I like Encore! in this mani because it’s a similar orange, but also different enough to be apparent. I wanted something between the negative space and May 2014, and after considering a few different things, this was what I picked. I felt a little bad covering up some holo, but I think it works. Also, good news, Envy didn’t stain me! Two coats of Seche Base did the trick.
May 2014 is no longer sold by Enchanted Polish; other polishes are available in their online shop. Ciaté is sold at Sephora.
Holo tips! These are super cool Stacie! All my Enchanted are unused….like seriously I have maybe 30+ and NEVER used ANY of them!! I’m paranoid to use them.
This is very nice! Fun fact: I’ve never owned an Enchanted Polish, and probably never will
Hah, never say never! I hear you though, it can be so hard to track down some of them.
Wow!!! I would have never thought of a look like this!!! It looks amazing and I need to do this in blue ASAP!!!
Yes!! I want to see it if you do!
Such an interesting mani. While I don’t wear orange I’d love to use this design with red or blue.
I’d love to see it if you give it a shot!
I approve of all orange manicures! The striping on this is fantastic!
You used some great oranges! I like how different this is.
I love how this different. I am digging the various orange shades! Simply gorgeous!
I LOVE this.
Ohh! What a gorgeous holo!! I’m waiting to be able to wear holos again. So little sun here in Finland at this time of the year that it’s such a waste of a good holo to use it on your nails now 😀
I love orange! this is perfect!
I love this manicure! A little negative space. A little holo sparkle. So good!
This is so bright and it makes me happy!
Love this manicure! These orange shades are so pretty!
I love how you did this mani!!!! It’s delicious!
Ah I love orange, and I love this mani! x
I like the negative space. It’s so unique.
This is so lovely! I love the colors you chose, too. Maybe I’ll try to recreate it with what I have in my stash to wear this weekend.
i LOVE pairing holos and cremes in the same colour together!
