I Love Nail Polish Birefringence (h) Swatches!

*purchased by me*

I'm just popping in with a quick post today. My NOTD is I Love Nail Polish Birefringence (h) because I am pumped for the Spring ILNP pre-order today (11 AM PST)!! Birefringence (h) is a super shifty multichrome, flashing between a wide range of colors like navy blue, royal blue, purple, red, gold, green, and pink. I can't believe how many colors I see in this polish and my pictures only capture a few of them. In person, Birefringence is constantly changing and looks different almost on each nail. 

ILNP says Birefringence has an "array of incredible blues, purples, reds, oranges, yellows, and even subtle greens" and it has all of those for sure. I got the holo version, so there is a good amount of scattered holo sparkle in it as well. In bright light, I can see a more linear looking rainbow flash, but in most lighting, it just looks like pretty holographic glitters.

This is three coats of Birefringence. As long as you let each coat dry completely before applying another coat, this was easy to work with. When I put a new coat on too quickly, I had some dragging happen. I needed the third coat to cover that dragging and to make this fully opaque at the tips of my nails.

Birefringence (h) is available now at and you can throw it in with your spring goodies today ;). I am definitely preordering Fame, Happily Ever After, Timeless Vow and Rapture (h). I am pondering Hush (h) and Abundance! Will you be preordering anything from ILNP today?
