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!

This is one of the most beautiful nail polish colors I've ever seen. In artificial light it appears to be a blue/teal color that changes to fuschia/purple when the light hits it in a different direction. In natural sunlight this polish is a stunning ultramarine blue! I think I may have found my new favorite. (Posted on 10/6/2016)

Birefringence was the first polish I purchased from ILNP, and it is still one of my all time favorites. The only problem I have is that I can't talk to anyone face to face without them stopping me at some point to ask about my nails or grab my hand for a closer look. (Posted on 9/21/2016)

Another multichrome winnerReview by Jordan

I've got a few of the ilnp multichromes, sirene and cameo are my favourites but this one is a close third. Opaque in 2 coats, not streaky, and a strong colour shift. Also, I usually change my polish every couple of days, but I ended up having this on for 8 days, and there was zero chipping. Amazing. (Posted on 9/11/2016)

This is by far my favorite because of the beautiful array of colors and it lasted 3 weeks! When it started to chip a little on the tips, my nails were needing trimmed so it looked like they were freshly painted when I was finished. I look forward to trying another ultra chrome some time!

I love the colors of this polish. It is magnificent. That said it seems to wear off on the tips of my nails. Just a little bit. Doesn't really chip just seems to appear to rub off slightly on the tips. Oh I have acrylic nails so I don't know how it does on natural nails. But I love, love the color!! (Posted on 8/24/2016)

I can't stop staring at my toes. Whenever I get sad, I look at my toes and watch them change from fuschia to deep purple to cobalt blue and it makes me so, so, happy. (Posted on 8/21/2016)

Everybody loves this polish. It takes a couple coats to get full opacity but once you do, be prepared to fall in love! Such a unique combo of blue, green and gold. (Posted on 8/18/2016)
