Birefringence

I do not possess the linguistic capacity to express the “awesomeness” of this nail polish. But for you, I’ll try.

Birefringence is a jaw droppingly beautiful polish that effortlessly stops people in their tracks. Planning on having a meaningful face-to-face conversation with a friend? Plan on an abrupt derailment as soon as he/she notices what your nails are up to. Remember though, it’s not their fault; you were warned!

Birefringence shifts through an array of incredible blues, purples, reds, oranges, yellows, and even subtle greens!

Birefringence 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.

Fully opaque after 2 coats!

Birefrigence is the first multi-chrome that I've purchased. I have been on the edge for a while, and I can't believe I waited this long. I could not stop looking at my nails when I wore it. It's so cool and the shift between colors is truly impressive. (Posted on 11/6/2017)

This starts with an unbelievably beautiful blue... like the clear water of some tropical ocean. Then it deepens to a vibrant cobalt, and a glowing magenta. It looks like the twilight right after sunset over a mountain lake! This polish is totally phenomenal! If I could give it six stars I would! (Posted on 10/28/2017)

Worth the $$$Review by Zapkat

I'm a $5 bottle of nail polish or less girl. I'm very rough on my hands and polishes don't last anyway, so why pay extra? Also, it seems like you can usually find something similar for cheaper. But THIS - worth the money. Gorgeous color shift, smooth finish, good drying time, and it's lasted most of the week. I'm very impressed and will definitely be purchasing more of their color shifters. <3<3<3 (Posted on 10/9/2017)

Goes on very well and it's a super fun color I was not able to find else where. It's so beautiful, wore it to a family function and the compliments were endless. Crazy part is it doesn't chip super easy but the removal is quick and effortless when the time comes <3 (Posted on 10/8/2017)
There are No WordsReview by JC

This polish is the epitome of beauty. The range of colors and the ease of application, the stunning layering capability, and the lasting power are all top-notch. One of the blue shades perfectly matches my Eternal Blue Mazda, as well, which makes this the 4th car with which I can coordinate my polish.

I've gotten absorbed in admiring the colors and shifts and shift points at work, in the car (at stop lights, because otherwise, I will stop traffic in a very bad way!), at the store, and really anywhere my hands are in view. I've had two women stop me to ask about it and three coworkers and friends threaten to steal my bottle. One of the best purchases I've ever made along with the rest of the UltraChrome line. Now on to the Holo versions! (Posted on 10/5/2017)

Absolutely In LoveReview by WaldosAkimbo

I have so many nail polishes, it's ridiculous (as I'm sure many of you do as well). But this is by far my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE. The colors are extraordinary, and even though you have to add about three layers, I think it adds to the incredible color changing and strength of the nail itself. Also, I have such a hard time not having my nails chip like crazy, but this is long lasting and beautiful. I'll be buying more of your products for sure. (Posted on 9/26/2017)

I love this color, I have to use a very nice basecoat and take my time because it doesn't have the forgiveness of the holo/glitter polish. I love having a top coat on this for an extra punch of color (Posted on 9/1/2017)

This was the first ILNP Ultra Chrome I bought and I'm so impressed that it has already been joined by maybe 6 more. The finish is absolutely flawless - super shiny - and the shades are stunning. I wore this on holiday to the Ilses of Scilly and it was a perfect match for the Agapanthus flowers that prevail all across the islands, I got so many compliments on my nails which miffed my wife somewhat.
