Ludurana Aurora Boreal

Continuing with the stash busting today! This one a dear friend (Hi Barb!) hooked me up with when I started asking about good multichromes. She told me I had to get this, and it was such a low price, I was sorta obligated to buy it. I'm a sucker for a good sale. I had never heard of this brand, and now I find myself wanting a few more.


From what I can tell, this is a pretty standard multichrome polish. It shifts from cobalt>cerulean>teal>purples>fuchsia. Definitely all colors I adore. Barb was right. The formula is pretty thin, and I needed three coats to get to the level shown here. There are a few brush strokes too, but those could have been easily mitigated had I been so inclined. There was one major thing that kept me from wearing this for a long time...




Guess what "perfumado" means in Portuguese?! If you guessed "scented like a bar of soap from a meth lab bathroom" then you would be right. It is very pungent. Not bad, exactly, as scents go. But there is a definite chemical-meets-faux-clean smell. It didn't dissipate fast enough, and I could only go a few hours with this one. But dammit if it isn't glorious to look at.











Like I mentioned before, it is pretty sheer. I think that next time I will wear dark gray undies under this. Three coats, and I can still see through my nail tips at different angles. That bugs me almost as much as the smell.

ignore those lines...I think I bumped into a doorframe.
Tl;dr this stuff is jaw-dropping amazing fantastic. It also smells like soap on drugs. I can't recommend it, but I can't warn you away...If shiny things made my hair fall off, I'd be the happiest bald chick you would ever know. I can't help myself.
