I Love Nail Polish- Sirene [Swatch]




I Love Nail Polish- Sirene is from the Spring 2014 collection of Ultra Chromes.  The other one that I picked up from the same set is Nostalgia (H), swatched here.



Sirene is a gorgeous green/ aqua/ indigo/ purple multichrome. Straight-on it appears mostly vibrant green with teal/aqua and indigo fading out toward the edges. At more oblique angles, it is purple/ indigo.

Artificial light, two coats:



Window-filtered daylight:



If you don't like green on your nails at all, you won't like this- but, it really is super changeable, and if you like multichromes, you need Sirene. It's beetles on your nails!

Outside, shade:




Formula: It applies sheerly, but is not streaky.  It sort of wants to drag baldish patches if you overwork an area, but then if you wait long enough, it self-levels to correct it. The second, slightly thicker, coat is opaque, if a little thin at the tips.  Brushstrokes are invisible at normal viewing distances. Very nice!

  3. Ah this polish is amazing! Its just so cool with how many colors you can make it appear depending on the angle and how the light hits it.

  5. Dayamn, that is just gorgeous! Thanks to you I have this pretty (with Undenied and Kings & Queens) coming to me. Your mail post featuring these convinced me and I got them as a reward to myself for finishing a month of working out everyday (something I didn't think I could do. The thought of polish kept me going LOL).

  8. Yea, it's really crazy! It really wants to photograph bluer than it is- it's got a lot more green than some other I<3NP multichromes.
