Alter Ego Elbaite Tourmaline might be the shiftiest polish Cynthia has made. It looks purple in the bottle but is a green base with pink, blue and purple shifts and a beautiful shimmer. It is exclusive to Polish Pickup starting today through Monday and priced at $10US.
Alter Ego Elbaite Tourmaline Swatches
Three coats of Alter Ego Elbaite Tourmaline on all but my ring finger shown in my swatches. My ring finger has the strongest visible nail line and while you could see the tips under lights, it looked fine in normal lighting. The third coat definitely pushes the purple/blue shifts though. You can see a lot more of the green base with only two coats. Honestly, swatch photos don’t do this one justice.
You can see a bit of the green at the base and tips of nails with the more prominent blue/purple shifts on the nail. This is how my eyes usually see it in normal lighting.
