I’m super excited to be sharing this post! I got together all of my rainbow-shifting polishes and swatched them.
This post is going to be extremely image heavy, be warned!
First I have my favorite of the bunch, Girly Bits Shift Happens, an absolutely gorgeous multichrome topper. It has a primarily red/gold/green shift, but you can also sometimes spot some blue peeking out. It’s too thin to layer to opacity, so I have two coats of this over OPI Dark Side Of The Mood.
Next I have Girly Bits Thud!, which is pretty much a flakie version of Shift Happens. It has that same red/gold/green color shift, with the occasional blue showing through. This is also layered over DSotM. I’m kicking myself for putting a regular glossy topcoat over this, when a matte topcoat would have made the flakes more visible!
And last I have a discontinued favorite, Color Club The Uptown. This is the old formula that was discontinued fairly recently, with the color shifting flakies suspended in a purple jelly. The new rendition of this color is kind of pretty, but it’s BORING, and doesn’t have the beloved rainbow flakies. I snagged three bottles of this right before they were discontinued, haha. I have one coat layered over Color Club Baldwin Blues.
What do you guys think? Which one is your favorite?
