Prism is another one of those polishes that doesn’t get much love. The main complaint is that it doesn’t become opaque, but my take on the name (a prism being something you look through) is that it is meant as a top coat. I find it quite versatile in taking the ‘blackened’ nail polishes from a few seasons back, which often look black in anything but full light, and showing them as a jewel colour.
My photo here shows viridian (one coat) with prism as a top coat with two coats of viridian and no prism on the ring finger to show the contrast. It does mute down some of the inner light of viridian but also brings it back to a beautiful royal blue foil. I have wanted to get “Swimsuit – Nailed It” by OPI for a while but can’t do it on my no spend so this is a good way of indulging my craving 🙂
