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!

Blue based with lots of purple-pink-orange. Like an oilslick, and with a fabulous formula that is opaque at two coats. (Posted on 3/11/2017)

Stunning! Review by Lacquer Love

After my first ILNP order, I had to get my hands on more. My second order consisted of entirely ultrachromes, and included this stunner. Be prepared to never stop staring at your nails. The formula is on the sheer side however, but that seems to be norm for ILNP's ultrachromes. I did a thicker second coat and was able to achieve full coverage, but three thin coats would do the trick. (Posted on 3/3/2017)

I've seen a lot of supposed multi-chrome polishes that barely have any shift once applied. This is definitely NOT like any of those. This polish definitely has multiple shifts in any lighting. Went on well, wore well for a week, easy to remove (no staining.) (Posted on 3/3/2017)
I know why this is a cult favorite.Review by Camille

The shift is glorious! I find that I like 2-3 thin coats of this. The first coat always looks sheer, but not to worry! The beauty that is Birefringence will come together. (Posted on 3/2/2017)
