Duo Chrome Nails

F.U.N. Lacquer Blessing is just my type of shade: duochrome with teal and purple that shows gorgeous glitter in direct sunlight! I took a little video of how the polish changes depending on light, but couldn't be arsed to go through all the steps to get the video to show, so here's a flood of pictures instead ;D

This is three coats and Seche Vite top coat on natural nails.

Petrol.

Petrol and purple.

The light purple shows best in artificial light.

Lavender.

Direct sunlight brings out the green/petrol glitter!

More purple.




So versatile! You get like five polishes in one ;D Blessing wants to go on a bit streaky, but three coats pretty much hides the problem. With four I doubt it would show at all. The finish is so metallic and shiny you can't really see if the polish is a bit thinner in some spots. You can see slight streakiness on my nails, but mostly it's down to nail surface being a bit uneven, as I'm still growing out the last few millimeters of the filed surface after removing acrylic nails.

I have plenty of teal and purple nail polishes, as those are my favourite colours, but no other polish gives me the opportunity to wear both at the same time!

  2. I've been calling this sort of thing "iridescent' and 'beetlewing' - now I'm going to have to call it duochrome! I like this nail-polish, and while I've got a green/purple one a bit similar, those are my two favourite colours and of course I want more :P

    1. Beetlewing is such a beautiful words for shades like these! Purple and sea-green just go together so nicely. Thanks!
