There are the color-shifters heard around the world: Clarins 230, then Max Factor Fantasy Fire, then all of the glorious scarlet red to gold to emerald green shifters from then on. I was faced with the decision of which of the famed similar colors to buy: Nail Pattern Boldness Boop-Oop-a-Doop (Late Night Lacquer did an awesome review here)? Ninja Polish Divinity? Darling Diva Ringer? The list went on and on and on, and finally..... I had waited long enough. Also, I had a birthday. And I was recently inflamed by the blog sale phenomenon. So lo and behold - I whipped out the wallet and snagged Ninja Polish Divinity from someone's blog sale for a damn good deal. And I was not disappointed. Ninja Polish Divinity is part of her Enigma collection, and now I will probably need to eventually buy all of her color-shifting goodies. This is why I have a job. DISCLAIMER: THE GLORY BEHELD IN THESE PHOTOS ARE NOTHING COMPARED TO THE HEAVENS THAT OPENED WHEN I PUT ON THIS POLISH TWO DAYS AGO.
In these swatches, I'm wearing two gratuitous coats of Ninja Polish Divinity over OPI Nail Envy with one coat of Poshe on top. In application, you'll see that there are oodles and oodles of color-shifting bits suspended in a freaking awesome bright purple base. I almost wish I just had the base, as purple is my favorite color. I found out that I needed to start out with a fair amount of polish on the brush, elsewise I'd get some patching going on. Hence, the phrase GRATUITOUS coats. Worst case, throw on a third one. Either way, everything turned out PERFECT in the end. As far as durability goes - it made it two days on my fingers with minimal tip wear and one chip on my right thumb. Not bad!
Here's my thumb. With a label!
Capturing this color shift was rough - no lies. This polish is straight up magical and at any given time you can stare at your fingers and watch them shift from coppery red to a stunny gold and then to a deep (almost teal) green. This is why I took eight kajillion pictures and waggled my fingers about for an hour (or two).
Here is a nice close up - I almost got all the colorshifting!
Here we go - three little fingers off the the sparkly market.
Then I made the worst decision of my life. I matted it. While it's pretty - don't get me wrong, you can really see the red and copper here, I lost most of the stunning shift.
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. It was audible.
