As you can see from the bottle, Clarins 230 is literally a bottled rainbow, with red/purple/green/gold hues sparkling throughout, the polish itself is extremely sheer, and works best as a layering polish, but the possibilities here are endless as it makes so many polishes look spectacular! The consistency is thin and applies perfectly! It's packed with tiny shimmer particles that flash so many different shades. This polish should really carry a hazard warning with it, because once its one, you wont be able to stop looking at your nails, whatever the lighting you will notice this polish literally transform throughout the day depending on your light source, and I swear I've never kept a polish on so long before, I could happily wear this colour every day and never tire of it!
The first polish I layered Clarins 230 over was China Glaze Long Kiss (a red metallic polish), I'm not sure I picked the best polish to start with, as I've since tried it over other shades and its continued to dazzle me even more (but I'll save those for a later post) Prepare for photo overload! :D

Now for the exciting part! Non-flash pics, these really capture the true multi-chrome nature of this awesome polish!

I wish I could capture how truly stunning this polish is on camera, but its near impossible, I've since tried again, and I think I did a little better with the next attempt, so I promise more photos soon :) I really cannot say enough good things about this polish! LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE! :D
