Oh, shift!

Nothing beats a multichrome. Ok, maybe a great holo or an ultracontrasting (a word I’ve just made up) contrasting shimmer can compare, but multichromes are really, really cool.

They are extremely entertaining: a nail polish addict could spend hours watching them, rotating fingers so that the polish can be hit by the right lighting, dipping hands in cold water to emphasize the colour shift, taking gazillions of photos to record each and every step of the transitioning process.

Spotted a woman in a parking lot, alone, doing nothing except staring with intensity at some unidentified object? NPA drooling over her multichrome, pretty sure. The car in front of you doesn’t move even if it has the green light? Another NPA.

Yes, because for some very precise scientific reasons that I totally ignore, the car is where the magic seems to multiply: no light is so perfect as the one coming in through the windshield. If you have ever worn a colour-shifting polish, I know you can relate.

Recently I tried on my nails a creation of the Queen of Shift, Miss Tonic Polish. In the photos below you can see how three coats of Dorothy look without top coat: amazing, uh?

Dear Lindsey, if you’re reading (insert laughter here), if only I could, I’d buy everything you come up with, EVERYTHING. With enormous relief for my bank account, I can’t – but I try my best anyway… Lol!

What about a couple of pics of multichromes from my collection? First up is a purple-to-gold duochrome by H&M, which is pretty decent for the price.

Then a super ultra mega fabulous purple-to-green-to-everything multichrome by Bow Polish, appropriately named Good God. So gorgeous. The photos are a couple of years old, sorry for that.

A classic now: ILNP Cygnus Loop, one of the first polishes of this kind in my stash to be opaque on its own (back in the days colour-shifting varnishes were often sheer and required a black base to fully express their potential). Again I apologize for the old, really atrocious photos. I am deeply ashamed, but I just don’t have time to swatch all these polishes again (adulting sucks).

So, what do you think? Do you like multichromes? Let me know in the comments!

See you soon!


DISCLAIMER: all photos are my own, all polishes were purchased with my own money.

    Hahahahaha mi fai sempre ridere un sacco 😂 è troppo vero: in macchina capita sempre di trovare una luce fantastica che non ti lascia tregua dal continuare a fissarti le unghie! Che si tratti di holo, multicromati o rispondenti agli UV
    Ti prego scrivi più articoli 😄😍

      L’amore multicromatico mi travolge! Non ho molti DL: Different View, Milky Way e Boo, mi pare. Devo rimediare!

    Multichrome + holo = the best! Ma anche multichrome + flakies non é da buttare *___*

    • my_apawcalypse February 8, 2019 / 6:57 pm

      Però non esageriamo con i flakie! Anzi, in un multichrome non ce li mettiamo proprio. XD
      Assestiamoci sul multichrome holo magnetico. Deal?
