Salon Perfect Scarlet Enchantment

Happy hump day, my friends! This week feels like it's going by fast, and that's always a good thing! :-)

Today, I've got another enchanting (teehee) shade from the Salon Perfect First Look Fall Collection to show you. Scarlet Enchantment is a bright scarlet red with red and gold shimmers in a metallic finish.






With Salon Perfect Matte Fx Top Coat

This is definitely one of those va-va-voom shades. The formula is great, so smooth and not at all streaky. The payoff is so good that you can get away with just one coat, though I did the usual two coats for the swatches to deepen the red shade a little more. Personally, I've always been a huge fan of red nail polish, which makes me feel so powerful and confident when I wear it. 

Just to see how this would look matte, I threw on Salon Perfect's Matte Fx Top Coat. And would you believe, I love it even more! I've been really getting into matte finishes lately and think that most dark fall shimmers look super duper amazing as a matte. What do you think of this red shade as a matte?

You can find Scarlet Enchantment exclusively at Walmart stores for a retail price of $3.98 for 0.5 fl oz.
