Hello friends! Today I have for you a brand I am trying out for the first time, Native War Paints. I am super excited to bring you their newest multichrome collection, Nifty Shifty, which consists of 6 different multi-chrome polishes blended with different iridesent and holographic glitters. PLUS, I have their new glitter topper to share as well ;).
Native War Paints: Multichrome Millionaire
First up, a green shifter. This one shifts from a lime green, to a grass/emerald green, cerulean blue, and teal, along with an iridescent glitter that shifts from copper/gold/green and some scattered holo glitter. Formula was smooth and easy to apply. Polish dries well. Base was bit sheer, so it took 3 coats for full opacity* (read just below).
*A quick comment on all these polishes. Because I had to use multidirectional lighting to try and pick up the shiftiness, some of the lighting in the videos and photos are from behind the nail, which I believe accentuates any areas where my hand was lighter to apply polish, making it look more sheer. In person, the polishes were opaque enough and if any nail line was visible, it was very faint, and you really had to look hard to see it. Besides, with all the glitter and metallic goodness going on, you really had plenty of distraction.
Native War Paints: You Shifting Me?
This polish was definitely one of the most shifty, in regards to how many colors you see on the nail. From magenta to purple, and navy blue to teal, then green! This one also has iridescent glitter that shifts from copper/gold/green, and some flakies. Formula was smooth and easy to apply. Flakies were not difficult to work with, but polish may dry textured where larger flakies may stick up a bit. I think it's easy to smooth out with top coat. Shown is 2 coats plus top coat.
Native War Paints: Shiftastic!
This polish shifts from blue to purple, and magenta with a bit of copper that peeks through in some angles. This also has the same shifty iridescent glitters, and as you can see, it's also loaded with micro holographic glitter! Formula was smooth and easy to apply. Polish dries a bit bumpy due to micro glitter, but can be smoothed out with top coat. Base was bit sheer, so it took 3 coats for full opacity*
Native War Paints: Dramatic Multichromatic
This one was a surprise like for me. In the bottle it didn't look too spectacular, considering that some of the other polishes had greater shifts, but man, did I love this on my nails! This is the vampy one from the collection in my opinion! It's so gorgeous. The shift is from an almost rose gold to deep copper, then purple and vibrant magenta in a dark base. Also has iridescent and holographic glitters. The formula in this was definitely thicker than the previous polishes. In my swatches, I tend to do thin coats, but as I was applying, I realized later that it's better to do a bit thicker coats. It still was not difficult to work with at all. Shown is 3 coats plus top coat.
The last two polishes of this 6 piece collection were my favorites!!! They are definitely the stand out shades in my opinion. I also feel like the chrome pigment in these are a bit larger particles, making them shimmer/glisten a bit more than the previous ones??? I'm not sure. They're stunning for sure.
Native War Paints: Transitional
I mean, to me this shifts from an almost coral, to bright magenta, to copper, gold, and bright lime green. In some angles you could faintly make out the darker green tones, but it was impossible to capture. This also had the iridescent shifty glitters in two different sizes, in a clear base. Formula was smooth and easy to apply. Polish dries well. Base was bit sheer, so it took 3 coats for full opacity*
Native War Paints: Shift Change
This is a gold, copper, bronze, multi-chrome with iridescent and holographic glitter. Another stunner!. Formula was smooth and easy to apply. Polish dries well. Base was bit sheer, so it took 3 coats for full opacity*
That's it for the full collection, but I still have a topper to show you below.
Native War Paints: Changes
This is a glitter topper in a clear base with iridescent shifty glitters that shift from gold/green and copper, and it is loaded scattered micro dust holographic glitters and flakies. Formula was very smooth and easy to apply. Shown is 1 coat over black polish. It was easy to get glitters to go on the nail evenly.
