This polish is gorgeous! Very luminous and the colour shift is amazing! No need for a black base coat! These are definitely going to be hometown favorites! I also purchased Cynus Loop and Bifringence and love them all - I WILL be back for more! (Posted on 4/14/14)
What A color shifter!Review by MusingCrow

I now have four of ILNP's multi-chromes and this is third that I have tried. This color exhibits the most amazing color shifts imaginable - all remarkable intense.

Yes, one sees the intense, cheerful green that made me want to buy this color, but you also get a rich rose-y, coppery, gold, a silvery shade with a tinge of lavender, and, under some light s9Like my Ott light) you see the lushest, most intense, "underwater-in-the-Carribbean" turquoise-y blue I have ever seen in a nail polish.

This color and it's shifts are simply jaw-dropping!

I think that this will become one of my personal favorites. Next up will be Birfrigencence (sp?). One thing that I know is that I want to collect all of ILNP's multi--chromes. I have, indeed, become addicted! (Posted on 4/7/14)

I don't have enough of ILNP's multi chromes yet, but of three that I have tried thus far, Mautgen, is one of the most incredible color shifters I have experienced.

Yes, you get that awesome, cheerful, bright green (which is what attracted me when I purchased this color), but it also exhibits a rosy, coppery gold, a silvery lavendary color and, in some lights (such as under my OTT) light, I get the most amazing ,lush, deep sea, carribean blue imaginable (Posted on 4/7/14)

A glory to beholdReview by Gnommi

Easily my favourite shade of nail polish ever - and I say that as someone who is borderline obsessive about metallic/duochrome/holographic greens! The multichrome is absolutely stunning, running from a salmon-pinkish bronze and olive, to beetle-wing emerald, to a rich royal purple, with occasional other bonus surprises! The only issue I had with it was that it needs at least 3 coats to reach opacity by itself. Even my manicurist couldn't get away with less than 3, and then there were still slightly sheer areas. Works a treat over black though, where 2 thin coats is easily enough, if not one. (Posted on 11/30/13)

This is sooo pretty! I have to be careful with blue and green polishes as they tend to give me the dreaded Lobster Hands. Mutagen doesn't. Coverage was a dream and the color reminded me of beetle wings. I dig beetle wings, so it's all good. (Posted on 11/26/13)

I love everything about the color. It changes colors, ive gotten tons of compliments when I wear this nail polish. I can't stop looking at my nails because the color is so amazing. it is definitely a must have. I love how the green turns to a bright orange, and then the bright orange turns your bright purple. I'm so happy I bought this nail polish. I definitely will be buying more. you really feel like a movie star when you're wearing this nail polish, and I love that it's custom made.

This polish is beautiful, I've had it on my toes for 2 weeks and I've even gotten compliments at the gym locker room. It will look fabulous after 2-3 thin coats. Get this one, even if you are on the fence about green polish! (Posted on 11/20/13)

I was not sure what to expect as this was my first ILNP but I have to say I was over the moon! It went on easily, smoothly, evenly & the dry time was nice! I will say that for me I needed 3 coats to get the best in opacity but that is not an issue for me. I was so happily surprised that I am looking to buy more!

You see the duochrome effect best in natural light & when you do you can't stop staring at your nails!! I would def recommend this! (Posted on 11/1/13)

Disappointed in opacityReview by Debbie Spence
Value
Quality

Many of the reviews seem to say that Mutagen covered in just two coats with no issues. Unfortunately when I first went to apply it Mutagen took three or four coats by itself to come to full opacity. I eventually had to layer two coats over a black base. I was expecting a bit more since the product page said it would only take two coats. The polish was thin, sheer and the brush seemed super stiff and did not evenly spread the polish.

The shift is gorgeous, there is no denying that and I am very impressed with the beautiful shift, but for me it was very sheer. (Posted on 10/16/13)

I bought 3 of the multichromes at once. This was the first one I put on (and still can't bring myself to take off after a week) and I'm in love! Every angle gives another color. Do NOT out your hand on top of your steering wheel while driving, it's so distracting! (Save gazing for stop lights.) I used 3 super thin coats and it applied flawlessly. Can't wait to try the others! (Posted on 10/16/13)

This is the most intense green polish I own. It's so pigmented and so smooth, this is a dream to apply. The duochrome is not as strong as the other ones in this collection, but let me tell you that does not matter one bit. The crazy bright, sultry green with this delicate subtile lilac duochrome makes it truly unique. (Posted on 10/7/13)

How DARE you take the top spot for my favorite polish! I swore nothing could boot that one out, but you did it! I can't even admit out loud what it was b/c I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings, but, jeez... I gotta at least be honest that you've now got top honors. I also have to announce that you're also now responsible for my first born as soon as that birth happens.

(Not sure you should sweat that one too much as I've seen menopause come and go, but I wanted to scare you anyway. I mean, the beauty of this polish scared ME, it was so insanely gorgeous, so I owed ya! lol) (Posted on 9/22/13)

I don't have enough hands. I bought all four but have only tried the green. It is so beautiful I can't bear to take it off. I can't think of all the beautiful colors I have seen. The other night I was sitting in a chair and the light from the setting sun was coming in the window behind me. Just light, not sun. The polish turned the most beautiful sparkly bronze.
I went to a beauty supply and the clerk almost jumped over the counter shouting "where did you get that polish?" I told her. She said "how much"? I told her. She said "that's not bad". I am sure I will love them all. (Posted on 9/17/13)
