Frustration is often a key ingredient for reentrance mechanisms. Here we study the frustrated anisotropic shuriken Ising model, where it is possible to extend the notion of reentrance between disordered phases, i.e., in absence of phase transitions. By tuning the anisotropy of the lattice, we open a window in the phase diagram where magnetic disorder prevails down to zero temperature, in a classical analogy with a quantum critical point. In this region, the competition between multiple disordered ground states gives rise to a double crossover where both the low- and high-temperature regimes are less correlated than the intervening classical spin liquid. This reentrance of disorder is characterized by an entropy plateau and a multistep Curie law crossover. Our theory is developed based on Monte Carlo simulations, analytical Husimi-tree calculations and an exact decoration-iteration transformation. Its relevance to experiments, in particular, artificial lattices, is discussed.
