This gorgeous beauty is SpaRitual Nomad, a complex duochrome-fleck shimmer that dries to a satin-matte finish and has an olive base with copper-pink-to-green shifting shimmer flecks, sometimes giving it a more brown or coppery overall look, sometimes more green. I used two coats, no top coat. The formula was great and dried quickly.
I then added topcoat to see how it would look shiny (looks amazing, of course!), and did an accent nail using Nubar Wildlife on my ring finger. Wildlife is basically the smooth metallic counterpart to Nomad; the colours and their shift are very similar! I also used two coats for Wildlife, no top coat. Love both of these!
This beauty is Black Dahlia Lacquer Dandelion Fields. I think it’s my favourite of the six BDL polishes I have so far! It’s a muted coral-leaning orange holo with pinkish-copper flecks.
This is two coats plus top coat, shown under Ott Lite. I found the formula slightly thick but not difficult to apply.
Under warm halogen light it looks a bit more yellow than it really is:
In the shade:
There was no sun when I swatched it, but there was the following day when I was wearing it as a mani. Here it is in the sun. The accent nail has a layer of Indigo Bananas Hay Ride, one of the new multichrome flakies (which are amazing!)
This last photo was taken on the bus, sorry for the weird reflections! But it shows off the accent nail better than the full sun shot. 🙂
Hallucinate is one of the duochrome holos by Indigo Bananas, and I think my favourite of the ones I’ve tried. It’s my kind of colour combination, love it!
The base colour is a golden bronze shade and it has metallic green duochrome shimmer that shifts to pink at extreme angles. Shown above with flash, and the other photos are under my Ott Lite.
Shown are three coats, although you could probably get away with two. The formula was smooth and problem-free and the polish dries quite quickly like most metallic-based holos.
The overall look is often olive green.
At an extreme angle, the coppery-pink side of the duochrome really shows:
