Paint it Pretty Polish Enchanted Swatch and Review

Last week, I posted my custom polish from Paint It Pretty Polish.  Sherri made me a thermal polish based on a picture of Izzy and it has been hard not to wear it every day.  But I added a multichrome from her regular polishes to my order and today I am sharing the beautiful Enchanted.  It has a gorgeous purple-green-blue shift.  I was kinda over multichromes for a bit but Paint it Pretty Enchanted caught my eye as the blue[Read more]
