Enkelini Nail Polishes Review & Swatches

Hi everyone! 
It's just another manic Monday here at the Deuce Beauties headquarters.

My Indie fascination continues today with 3 fun nail polishes from Pat over at Enkelini. Here are some swatches!

First up, Cottage Garden. The name matches the polish to a T and I couldn't think of a more suitable name! It is a clear base packed with aqua, and yellow glitters, small lilac, pink, green, and yellow hexes. This def. gives me an Easter/Spring feel. I imagine that this would look amazing over a white base; I'll have to try that one next! CG applied smoothly and evenly onto the nail. This is 2 coats over Anise Let's Tiki.

Next, Pink Tie Ball. A clear base composed of small black, white, and pink hexes, medium pink, black, and white hexes, white and pink bar glitters, large black hexes, and pink square glitters. A brilliant take on girly meets edgy! Glitter distribution was a bit tricky with the large hexes, but other than that, it's great all around! This was 1 coat over Nicole by OPI Strike a Pose.

Last, but not the least, Tara Made Me Do It. This was actually my favorite from the three! It's a clear base packed with lilac glitter, micro light blue hexes, small lilac hexes, magenta squares, and white diamonds. Suuuper stunning over black and the diamonds add an extra, "umpff" to the overall combination, GENIUS! Application was a breeze and formulation was perfect! This was 2 coats over China Glaze Liquid Leather.
