I know, I’ve been posting a lot from Born Pretty Store this week, but this one is gorgeous. Most of the products I try from them are nail art supplies, often stamping plates or polishes. I haven’t tried very many of their nail polishes but this time a multichrome caught my eye and I am very glad I decided to test it out!
I wanted to try this one since I didn’t have any other multichromes in this colour shift. As you’ve noticed by now, I gravitate towards purples, blues and greens the most. It looked like this one might have a really cool colour shift though – and it does!
Since the product listing specifically mentioned that a black base is required, I started with a base of Sinful Colors Black On Black. I then added 2 coats of Chameleon polish #221. It seemed pretty opaque over the black, so I’m sure it’d work on it’s own – but of course, the colour shift of a multichrome is always stronger over a dark base. Although I liked the stylish-looking bottle, I did not like the cap. It was unnecessarily awkward to paint my nails while trying to hold the large rectangular cap at the appropriate angle. I’d much prefer a skinnier cap for nail painting ease.
I haven’t tried it without the black base yet, but with the base, it was incredibly shifty. With my curved nails, I could see 2 shades even looking at them straight on. The shift is pink – bronzey gold – green. Although pink was the ‘main’ colour, I found the bronzey gold often dominated on my nails.
I decided to try for an underwater shot as well – needs work, so just ignore the reflections and so forth! The point is – look at that polish! It looks incredible. A fourth colour emerges underwater, a navy blue that I never noticed otherwise.
The macro shot was also taken underwater. It’s so shifty, my nail looks like an oil slick!
This one was a definite win for me. If you’d like to purchase it, it’s available here, and you can use the code KGG10 for 10% off your purchase.
