What's in a finish? - Iridescent
Today's what's in a finish post is about iridescent finishes. This one is a little harder for me to put together for you as the descriptions I've found are pretty short and sweet. An iridescent polish is often mistaken for being a duochrome or shimmer polish. The main difference is that they have less obvious flashes of color than a duochrome.

Please excuse the picture. It was one of the very first ones that I ever posted. Long before I knew how important good clean up was and was still having an issue with getting a nice nail shape. I recently realized that I own very few iridescent polishes and haven't used most of them.
I'm still not sure if I could pick out an iridescent polish in a line up of shimmers and duochromes even with all the research I've done. If anyone has a trick or tip they'd like to share please do. And I hope I haven't confused all of you with this post. I myself thought that most iridescent polishes were on the sheer side but have found that not to be the case.
I hope you have enjoyed this post. Id love to hear your thoughts on this finish of nail polish. Happy Polishing!
