This polish is essentially purple but moves from blue, through purple to a reddish brown. It also has a fine red shimmer to it even when you can't see the multi-chrome effect. I have layered one coat over Nails Inc Lily, from the Gossip Girl range - a red so dark it is almost black.
Cygnus Loop applied well, dried quickly and I certainly didn't feel the need for a 2nd coat.
I managed to capture a reasonable range of the colours, I think it helped it was a nice bright day today although it was hard to photograph in the sun and I ended up skulking in the shadows for the better pictures.
I have already worn Mutagen and Birefringence. There were 4 in the collection but I didn't fancy the yellower one, Nostalgia - not really a me colour.
I know they've been out a while and I avoided then at first as I have struggled with duo and multi-chromes in the past - the tip to apply them over a dark base is definitely the way to go. These 3 ILNPs are now very welcome in my collection :)
