This is one of my favorite polishes of all time. It was part of a set of indie polishes that I was sent to review, and I had never seen it before. I'd heard of Enchanted Polish, I'd seen people mention some other colors by them, but I really was clueless and nothing prepared me for the shock that I got when I pulled this bottle out of that mystery box. I can't believe I haven't done a full post on this color yet. I posted it on Twitter right when I got it, but it deserves more pictures than that. Bigger pictures. Lots of them. This is about as close to my dream polish as I've seen so far.

Enchanted Polish Hey Jude. Do not adjust your screen. You are not seeing things. This polish is actually multichromatic and holographic. My pictures don't even begin to do it justice. It is glorious. It's a green-based multichrome that flashes every color of the rainbow depending on the angle in which it's viewed. It is dominantly gold/olive/green/blue in most lights, but you can get a really amazing blue/pink/purple side to pop out in dim light. In very bright light (or with flash, as seen above), in addition to the strong scattered holographic effect, a pink base shimmer shows through and adds a nice, unexpected twist to the olive duochrome.
The formula on this is pretty good. Not perfect, but not bad either. It's nice and smooth, but if I don't take my time and control my brushstrokes, it has a tendency to pool at the edges. It's not too thick or too thin, but it does have a bit of a 'stretchy' (for lack of a better term) quality to it. I had the best results when I applied thin coats and waited three minutes between each. I'm wearing four coats here, no topcoat.
Not only is it named after one of my favorite songs, it's also a combination of my two favorite nail polish finishes (duochrome/multichrome and holographic) and contains my two favorite colors (purple and green!). This color just completely blows my mind. I adore it. I haven't felt this strongly about a color in a long time.
(This was sent for review.)
