To be fair, for the speed at which these bottles made it to the UK I still consider the price to be reasonable. Shipping for one bottle is currently $13.75 (£8.75), but doesn't increase until the quantity reaches three.
Best buy a couple then - they're worth it!
Birefringence: /bi·re·frin·gence/ (bi″-re-frin´jens) the quality of transmitting light unequally in different directions.
No underwater shots or camera trickery, just straightforward photos taken either in the light box or sunny garden.
It was easy to apply, I used three coats for the photos.
The majority of the time I saw a deep rich regal blue with a very strong purpley magenta shift.
Oddly, to see the other colours in the bottle I found that if I raised my hands above my head and lowered my hands slowly down, the colours cycled through a stunning spectrum of olive, gold, bronze, copper, rose gold, sunset, magenta and then back to the purple and regal blue as my hands returned to a sensible position.
Put your hands up.....
Now relax. Pick that jaw up from the floor and breathe.....
Good exercise for the bingo wings, but fortunately not the only way to see all of the colours; this one did take a bit of hangling, but they're all there.
Although I was hoping to see all of the colours more often, this polish caught me out when I wasn't expecting it. Unpredictable intense flashes of sunset, magenta and bronze make for hazardous driving conditions but many compliments, "oohs" and "aaahs" even from friends who aren't polish addicted.
(I did say best buy two, here's a cheeky shot of Birefringence with Mutagen!)
