Birefringence is the optical property of a material having a refractive index that depends on the polarization and propagation direction of light…. and that’s exactly what happens when you wear this nail polish. Birefringence shifts through an array of incredible blues, purples, reds, oranges, yellows, and even subtle greens. I was excited when I ordered this polish, I was super excited when it arrived in the mail…and I was nearly in tears when I wore it… you have no idea I was like a kid hopped up on sugar.
This nail polish is part of ILNP’s “Ultra Chrome” class of chromatic nail polishes; formulated to apply directly to the nail without the need for a base color, which makes it a time saver with maximum lookage (YES, I realize that its not a word…. but you know exactly what I mean…)
The consistency and quality of the polish is beyond amazing, it spreads like butter on my nails, which shocked me because I thought that the polish would be a little difficult to apply considering it’s a chrome. I was also concerned about the nail polish showing imperfections in the nail (which I sometimes have to deal with using chromes and metallic) I didn’t have to worry about that either. And don’t worry if you think color would be like it is in the picture of the bottle, but the intensity of the color flip is closer to the picture of the polish on nails. Under most lights it will be a purple/blue but at certain angles and under certain lights you start to see an orange/red/green shine.
I got TONS of compliments on my nails when I wore this. I was at the casino and one of the slot hosts stopped me and asked to look at my nails. We talked for about 30 minutes and nails and nail polish, I needed up giving her the name of the polish and the website so she can see the polish and the others in the collections… I’m sure she’s not a big fan just like I am. It took me a long time to buy this nail polish due to the price (you how I feel about being something over $10) but at $12.50 I think this was more than worth the money. Not only did this nail polish look great, but it lasts for a long time, (I had it on my nails and toes) and I had no issue with chipping at all (which tends to be the norm for these types of polishes).
As soon as I sat this nail polish on the bed Tsuki wouldn’t stop playing with it I want to say that she was in a playful mood (but she’s always like that ) I think that she might have seen some of the color shifts and thought that it was a toy. She wouldn’t let me take it from her…maybe it’s me but she’s got paranoid eyes in this picture and she literally took a nap with the picture. She’s like me, she knows a good thing when she sees it. And because we loved this nail polish so much Birefringence get’s a perfect 10 out of 10. If you’re looking to step out of the box without going super crazy this is the perfect nail polish for you… I would recommend this polish to EVERYONE. (I wonder how many sassy boys own this?…. that’s another post for another day!)
