Philly Loves Lacquer : Sunset Down the Shore

I'm really excited to show you today's polish but first have to start with an apology and disclaimer. This polish was available in June's Holo Grail box from Dazzled and is not available for purchase. :( That said, Esther has lots of other beauties in her shop and I've seen Sunset Down the Shore up for sale on Storenvy and other places so keep an eye out.

On to the polish!

I received this sneak peek several weeks ago and have been dying to show you. Now that the June Holo Grail boxes are arriving in people's mailboxes I can pull back the veil.

When I asked Esther what her inspiration was, this is what she said;
Sunset Down the Shore was my tribute to all of the sunsets I experienced as a child growing up going to the Jersey Shore every summer. I tried to capture as much of the pinkish orange glory as I could, and came up with Sunset Down the Shore. I look at the bottle and am filled with a sense of nostalgia.
I think she got it exactly right. Sunset Down the Shore is a pink-leaning coral and looks exactly like the sun setting on the water. It has these undertones that make it seem to glow from within and it almost seems magical. The holo isn't super strong but it's definitely there - like the sun shimmering on the ocean's surface. Poetic, right? ;)

The formula is on the thin side so I used three coats for these swatches but I ain't mad, because it really gives it this amazing depth. I don't even know if I would try it over undies - I'd be afraid of losing some of the complexity - but if you do, let me know.
