ORLY | Ingenuine

Question time! What's better than a color shifting nail polish? Answer. A nail polish that not only shift colors but is shimmery and metallic all at the same time! ORLY's Ingenuine is one of the most beautiful polishes I've ever seen. It was on the floor shelf (not a bottom shelf, but pretty much on the floor) at Sally's Beauty Supply, so it wasn't meant to catch your attention but boy did this one! I can't remember if I dubbed it or my sister dubbed, but never the less, this was dubbed the Rapunzel nail polish because of the gorgeous purple and gold shifts. Indoors and in flourscent lighting the nail polish takes on a brassy gold color. Outside the purple shines through more and when it's really sunny the two colors just dance together to create a magnificent metallic show. The finish of this polish looks as though it would be metallic but it's actually really shimmery which is great because then it doesn't apply streaky. I find you need two coats of this for it to really shine and show it's stuff. The formula was not too thin and not to thick, which made drying time super quick! The staying power is incredible- nearly 4 days on and it still had no chips. When it did start to fade a bit (mostly from lifting boxes at work) I removed it and painted it right back on. That's how much I love this polish and wanted to keep watching the color shifts in class. For $6, you can really do no wrong with this beaut!
