Indie Review: Carpe Noctem Cosmetics South Haven Sunset

*Purchased by me
Cruelty Free

Remember Man in White by Carpe Noctem Cosmetics that I posted last week?
At the bottom of that post, I gave you a sneak peek at another one of Emily's duochromes, South Haven Sunset. 

South Haven Sunset is a shimmery denim blue with a golden shift.
Shown here is 2 coats over a SH Base coat and one coat of NYC top coat.

This photo was taken outside in direct sunlight to show the golden shift. All of Emily's polishes dry quickly, have awesome staying power and are 3 free! 
South Haven Sunset was inspired by the way the ocean/lake water looks when the sun is nearing the horizon...

Tell me that isn't EXACTLY what this close up looks like?!?!?!
I am totally a beach girl. There's something about the salty air, sandy feet and the sound of waves.
A couple of times each summer, I will make the trip down to the beach and spend the day. And there is NO better feeling that watching the sun set, the fishing boats come in, clam cakes and the drive home.
I love the happy, sleepy feeling that I have after a day at the beach. 
For me, the beach solves everything.

In the shade, SHS shows a lot of the golden shift and it quite stunning even when not in direct sunlight. You can see the blue shift in the bottle here too.

The blue was harder to catch at these angles, but you can see it in my index and pinky fingers.

I just really like this, and all of Emily's polishes actually...

Emily is working on new duochromes as we speak read, so head over to her Facebook page to see previews AND you can even help name them for a chance to win a free bottle!
You can also head over to her shop to check out some of her other fantastic polishes in 3 different sizes!

What do you think?! Remind you of sunsets and water?
