I Love Nail Polish- Masquerade [Swatch]

I Love Nail Polish- Masquerade is another from the Spring 2014 release. I've also swatched Undenied (H) here.

Masquerade is a multichrome that shifts outwardly from magenta/ warm purple to golden orange, yellow, and vibrant green at the edges.

Artificial light, two coats:

Look how shifty! I know I say this about every I Love Nail Polish multichrome ever, but I believe this one might be the shiftiest one I own, period.  Maybe it is the contrast between the colors?  It's just wild in person. You don't have to tilt your nails at any specific angle to see a multitude of different hues.

Outside, shade:

Formula: This is a bit of a strange one.  The first coat is super duper sheer, and if you overwork it, it'll drag bald patches.  The viscosity is OK- on the thinner side, but not too, too thin.  The second coat goes on much less sheerly, and seems thicker. I think it just clings better to the previous layer or something.  I didn't have any pulling/ dragging issues with the second coat, so in the end it worked out just fine.

What do you think?
Is anyone getting sick of multichromes yet?
