OMG how happy was I to see the mailman show up with these!!! I ordered them from a great seller on eBay called justchinaglaze
and I am super excited about these!!
Rare and Radiant-
Rare and Radiant is probably the most duochrome out of the collection. It has a gold base and switches between green and gold. In direct sun it’s all gold but once in the shade you can really see the green.
In the bottle Unpredictable looks very similar to Rare and Radiant but once you put it on the nail you notice they are very different. This one has a green base that flashes gold and blue, oh so pretty!!!
Deviantly Daring is a really pretty aqua/teal color. In the shade/low light it looks more green teal but in direct sun it looks more blue teal. This one doesn’t have a strong color shift but the color itself is gorgeous.
Want My Bawdy-
I wish I could capture the beauty of Want My Bawdy better! I don’t really care for the name but it is such a pretty blue/ purple (blurple). It doesn’t have that duochrome goodness that the others have but it’s still really pretty!!
No Plain Jane-
I didn’t think I would like No Plain Jane but oh how gorgeous it is. It has a purple base and flashes between pink and gold. I don’t think I’ve seen another color quite like this one!
Swanky Silk is another color I thought I would hate, it looks very blah in the bottle. However, on the nail it’s actually very nice! This one has a gold base that flashes a pink/peach color, I couldn’t capture the pink awesomeness but IRL it’s so pretty!
Overall, I’m really pleased with this collection. The formula was great, not thick but not runny. You do see brushstrokes, but I think that comes with any chrome/metal/metallic polish. All of these are opaque in 2 coats and with the exception of Swanky Silk show no VNL(visible nail line) after 1 coat.
I wanted to experiment with how to make the duochrome show more so I applied 2 coats over white and black and this is what I discovered:
-Over white the base color comes through more. It also appears to maybe dull the color a bit.
-Over black the douchrome color becomes the dominant color. It deepens the color but it also seems to make the color shift stronger.
I can’t wait to play with these more, I’m excited to see how well these stamp!
