Anny ~ Illusionist, first take

Anny ~ Illusionist
Purple to green duochromatic shimmer

Lots of people like duochromatic polishes, me included. And it’s not just indie brands that make them. Today’s polish is from Anny, a lovely brand I usually check up on when I visit Germany. I got this one from Spain though :D

Illusionist works on its own, but it pops way more if you layer it over black. I used it alone today, just to see how that would turn out. I used two easy coats; the drying time was pretty good.

The stamp is from Moyou London’s stamping plate “Holy Shapes Collection-03” and I stamped with Colour Alike’s stamping polish “B. a Fairy Forest”.

I topped it all with “Northern Lights” from Out the Door, and this is my final manicure:

This is Illusionist alone. It’s two coats and no topcoat. The photo is taken in ordinary daylight, no sun.

And here is a picture taken in my lightbox. I like the shift in this.

These are the polishes and the stamping plate I used today.

I bought two more duochromes from Anny. I will keep you posted about those :D

Number of coats: 2
Drying time: Pretty good
Finish: Duochrome with shimmer
Overall impression: Good shift, nice colours. Pops the best over a base colour.
Buy again: Yes


  1. The shift is gorgeous. Its beautiful dual chrome although I haven't heard about the brand before. I would love the see the other one :)

    1. It won't be long before I try out the others! :)
