Duochrome


I told you a few days ago that I had bought my first duochrome polish - it's Spectral Green by Nocibé.
I was really curious to try it out. I had never used a duochrome polish before, so I actually can't really say anything constructive about this one because I can't compare it with any other duochrome polish.

That being said, I do love this one!
The colour shifts from bright green via mermaidish ocean blue to dark blue - my favourite colour of all these is the mermaid one :) (you can see it on the picture below, with a bit of the green colour as well - I sort of managed to capture the colour shift in pictures)


When you look straight at the polish on my nails, it just seems green. But if you tilt my hand a bit (or move your head, whatever works for you) the colour changes. I think I spent at least ten minutes in the bathroom looking at how pretty the colour shifted while brushing my teeth, haha.

It's really hard to get decent pictures of these polishes where the colour shift is visible. I have hundreds (and yes, I really do mean hundreds, it's not an exageration) of failed pictures of this on my computer. It's very frustrating when the colour shift is so obvious when you just look at your nails, but it's just not visible in pictures... However, I think I sort of managed to capture the colour shift in the pictures I'm showing you here (right?)


Do you have any duochrome polishes? Do you love them as much as I do? :)



*EDIT: I've made a gif to show the colour shifts even better!*



 Thanks for reading!

Haha, thanks! Maybe it's just something you have to be into, like textured polishes :)

This looks like a gorgeous polish! I love both of the colors it shifts to, especially the light silvery blue :)

Also, I've nominated you for a Blogger Friendship Award: http://the-nail-snail.blogspot.com/2013/11/blogger-friendship-award.html
