Smitten Polish ~ Endless Sunset



Smitten Polish ~ Endless Sunset
Peachy orange base packed with hologlitter

Orange has never been my favourite colour, not in nail polish nor in anything else. But this summer has surprisingly enough made me buy more orange polishes than I ever dreamed of. I think it’s because the polish makers are doing oranges that aren’t just either neon or autumn-coloured, if you know what I mean.

I bought Endless Sunset, which is an Edgy Polish exclusive because the few swatches I saw intrigued me. I knew I had to try it on my own. My heart honestly sank when I saw the bottle – I didn’t think it looked like any of the swatches I’ve seen (because you know how some people over-manipulate their pics and fool you into thinking that’s actually what the polish looks like in the real world, the annoying little egocentrics). But behold: This polish turned out to be much prettier on the nails than in the bottle, so it all ends well :)

The formula is great and the polish applies easily and effortlessly. It takes two coats to make it opaque and the drying time between the coats is really fast! Endless Sunset dries up semi-gritty, so you’ll need a layer of good topcoat if you want a silky smooth finish.

Here’s two coats, no topcoat, picture taken in the sun:


Is that an amazing polish or what? Now even I can wear orange!!


Here’s a lightbox picture. It’s still pretty imo!


I paired it with another Smitten of mine, namely Not Your Mama’s Easter Grass. I made small lines by the tips to resemble grass. Then I topcoated the whole thing and went back into the sunshine to take this picture:


It should have looked like grass but all I can think of when I see this is carrots, hahaha!! :D

I need to say thanks to Katarina from Edgy Polish for having such an awesome orange made!


Number of coats: 2
Drying time: Fast
Finish: Orange base with holo micro glitter, dries up semi-gritty
Overall impression: A great orange, I love the effect and the finish  
Buy again: Yes

I bought Endless Sunset from Edgy Polish – it’s a store exclusive so it’s the only place you can buy it if you want it :)
