Black Dahlia Lacquer Swan River Daisy is a turquoise/teal crelly with red-gold-green shifting flakies in it. Two coats plus top coat, great application. Love this polish!

Dichromate is a thermal polish from Polished by KPT, shifting from yellow when warm to orange when cold. It has lots of silver shimmer in it giving a foil effect. Shown in various degrees/various finger combinations of warm/cold.
I stamped over it using Kleancolor Metallic Mango and a pattern from Messy Mansion plate MM-13. I really like how it turned out!
Echoes Polish is a Canadian indie that makes all vegan friendly polishes and is most well-known for their thermal polishes. Today I have Now You See Me to show you. When cold, it’s a dusty sage green colour, and it has beautiful green glass flecks throughout. Shown are three coats plus topcoat.

Something to Remember by Il était un vernis is a taupe-leaning purple scattered holo with pink shimmer that is hard to capture in photos. It does show in these photos, but it’s much more apparent and complex-looking in real life!

Again under Ott lite, showing the shimmer on the side of the bottle:
And at an extreme angle back in the sunlight, the shimmer looks to have a bit of a duochrome aspect to it:
