Great color - not the most durableReview by Kate
Value

I'm aware that the price index on this is based on the cost of the materials to make sure a gorgeous color shift. This polish looks mostly purple dead on, but the edges have an oil-slick rainbow quality to them.

I applied two coats without base coat, as recommended by the manufacturer, and one top coat (Zoya Armor.) Within 12 hours I had two substantial chips in the polish. During that time I took 1 shower, and slept through the night. That was it. I'll try it again with a different top coat, and then again with a base coat. I'm known to have the kind of nails that polish tends to chip on quickly, but this is really just unacceptably fast considering the cost. (Posted on 1/7/2014)

I've never seen a purple to orange duochrome before this one, and I wasn't entirely in love with the swatches I had seen online, despite rave reviews. But I was still curious, and had to see if it lived up to the hype. It does. I love it and am completely mesmerized! (Posted on 12/30/2013)

Cygnus loop is my first purchase from ILNP (my 3rd indie purchase ever), and I have to say that even though I was hesitant to spend this much on one single nail polish, it was well worth the $$!! It's a gorgeous multichrome and I could see every single color in it (at least 4). Application and dry time were great! I will definitely be buying more of this brand! (Posted on 12/22/2013)
Best with more coatsReview by dzurlady

This is indeed very pretty. I found that I had full coverage at two coats, but got more of the colour shift at three to four coats, so would definitely recommend doing more than two. On my nails it tends to be mostly blue or in some lights purple, and shifts to the other colours as I move my hand around. Pretty and easy to apply. (Posted on 12/22/2013)

Probably the best multichrome shift I've ever worn and I have lots. What I like the most is all of the colors that flash are beautiful. There is never a moment where you are noticing a murky-ugly color on your nails. Now don't get me wrong, I can appreciate those colors too, but this is a polish that will convert anyone to a duo/multichrome lover. It did chip like mad on me but I am chalking that up to my basecoat since the other ultrachromes wore like iron. (Posted on 12/19/2013)
My First ILNP OrderReview by Happy Camper

Wow! Cygnus Loop was part of my first ILNP order. My productivity at work suffered the whole time I wore this as I couldn't stop staring at my nails. My polishes were received mere days after ordering in the cutest little ILNP box and matching tissue. Really impressed with the quality of the product and the attention to detail.

Takes 3 to 4 coats to get full effect. It's pricey. But totally worth it. I've never seen polish like this before. I have birefringence and Cygnus loop, with ac slater, mutagen (h), purgatory and the free one on the way. I can't wait to.try outthese new beauties (Posted on 11/14/2013)

Why, oh why, can't other duo/multi-chromes be this beautiful? Its because they aren't made by ILNP. Yumminess in a bottle is their mission & they do this with great good success! (Posted on 11/8/2013)

Darker than what I expectedReview by Brianna
Value

First I would like to say that the packaging it came in was flawless! I was impressed with the packaging.
When I pulled out the nail polish, I was first a little disappointed because the polish was super dark! My color expectations were based off the 1st photo (picture of the nail polish - front and back). The actual color is a deep dark purple.
It takes about 3 layers of polish to get a nice color. I wouldn't suggest using a different polish as a base coat (like I did) because the chromatic effects won't be so great.

I loved the polish though! Throughout the week I kept moving my hand so I could observe the color changes lol. (Posted on 11/5/2013)

The photos on the site don't do this colour justice. It shifts to every colour in the rainbow with a gorgeous metallic sheen. Opaque with 2 coats and dries in good time.
My job is torture to my nails and I usually have to replace my polish every day. But this i've had on for two days and there's only light chipping to the front!! No other brand has held on this well, not OPI, Essie, Sally Hansen...etc etc. I'm so impressed i'm going to be buying more.
Love it love it love it! (Posted on 10/20/2013)

Oh man. This is almost a onecoater, with an insanely strong duochrome effect that shifts from deep, sultry blue to an vibrant orange that reminds me of flames. No need to put this over another dark base, this is perfection on it's own. Smooth, easy to apply - simply amazing! (Posted on 10/7/2013)

This is my new favorite polish! I wore it for 4 days before it really started to show wear. Took it off and immediately put it back on. I probably will be purchasing a second bottle and another color very soon. (Posted on 10/5/2013)

Awesome!!! I love this nail color! I bought both this and Mutagen. They are both so pretty I couldnt decide which color I wanted to paint my finger nails so I used both. Everyother finger was painted, one Cygnus Loop and the other Mutagen. It looked cool and the colors actually worked together.
Will definitely be byuing more colors from ILNP. (Posted on 10/4/2013)

The formula was runny and bled all over the place. The color looked far more spectacular in the bottle than on the nail. I was really excited about this one but I found it to be a letdown. This is my first and probably last purchase of this brand. Sorry. (Posted on 10/2/2013)
