I ♥ NP - Cyngus Loop

I've had these polishes since they came out but I was waiting for my nails to be at their longest to show them off (the longer they are the more duo-chrome I can show off :D). It's been so long now that they have even expanded the collection and added a holographic version. Haha, oops! Hopefully I make it through the three that I own before I break a nail!

Now I've seen a lot of underwater pics of these polishes which are ridiculously gorgeous (and super cool) but it's important to know that you will never see that much of a duo-chrome on your nail unless it is submurged in water (which reflects lights from all angles) or your nails become spherical. It's no fault of the nail polish, it's just physics. It always looks better in the bottle because the bottle curves more than your nail. But, you will have a ton of fun looking at these while swimming or in the shower. They're great in regular lighting too, but you'll always only see two colors and maybe a hint of a third.

Fun Fact: My first duo-chrome nail polish was Sally Hansen Nail Prisms - Turquoise Opal which my (now)husband gave to me as a gift when I came up to meet him for the first time in Toronto. My engagement/wedding ring's main stones are simulated alexandrite which flashes purple/teal just like the polish (real alexandrite is red/green). :D
