Guess what guys, it's not glitter today! Instead, I have the incredibly amazing ILNP Ultrachrome polishes to show you! I saw a picture of these on the ILNP site and gasped out loud when I saw the colour shift. I totally didn't sit for an hour at work, refreshing the page when the preorders went up. That would be silly. I was so excited when they arrived as they looked as amazing in the bottle as they did on the site. I swatched each polish over black, took the photos, but no matter what I tried, I couldn't get the finish to a place where I was satisfied. I'm sure it's something about the way I was applying it, but there would be little bumps or inconsistencies in the finish and it was annoying. So I didn't post them. I gave them another shot in a taped mani and YES THIS IS BETTER LOOK:
To start, I did the usual two coats of black (Rimmel Black Satin at the moment) topped with Seche Vite because I'm impatient. I then taped off each nail into quarters and applied each of Cyngus Loop, Mutagen, Birefringence and My Little Glacier to one quarter. I used a small paint brush so I could get right to the corners. Finally, the finish came out properly. I don't even have to do anything to show you the colour shift, it's just there all the time. I think my favourites would have to be Cyngus Loop for that strong, strong orange, and Mutagen for turning so many different colours. My Little Glacier wasn't as shifty but still amazing. As was Birefringence. ALL AMAZING.
The Verdict: I love these polishes so much, they're so very much worth getting, even with some issues. Look at that last picture: I can't even count how many colours there are here. So amazing. And now there's holo versions too?? It's not fair, I just got these.... shiny
