Indie Tuesday - I Love Nail Polish "Mutagen"

Anyone who knows me, knows that my absolute favorite type of nail polishes are Multi-Chromes!  A few weeks back I pre-ordered the I Love Nail Polish Ultra Chrome Set!  I completely fell in love with the swatches I saw online & when they arrived, I was not disappointed.  The presentation alone made me giddy!  They came in the cutest boxes with matching tissue paper!  It was hands down the best Indie Polish presentation I've ever seen!  I won't be showing you the entire collection today because these babies are so gorgeous that they deserve their very own posts!  Today I'm showing you Mutagen.

Mutagen is described as a wonderful mirror-like chrome nail polish that seamlessly cascades through green, blue, red and orange; all depending on the angle of your fingertips.  It is part of the ILNP's "Ultra Chrome" class of chromatic nail polishes; formulated to apply directly to the nail without the need for a base color.  It is said to be fully opaque in 2 coats.

Although Mutagen is described to shift from green, blue, red & orange, I wasn't able to get all of those colors.  The color shift that I saw on my nails ranged from bright green, olive green, bronze, yellow, blue & purple.  Its definitely a show stopper.  I've actually seen underwater swatches where the reds & oranges were captured but unfortunately I was not able to see that translate naturally on my nails.  With that being said, Mutagen did not disappoint!  It's gorgeous!

Application was a breeze.  I applied 3 coats of Mutagen with no undies to get full opacity.  I probably could have gotten away with 2 but I don't like visible nail lines.  Mutagen costs $12.50 & can be purchased here
