Indoors, “You Better Work” is a bright orange with a rainbow of shifting iridescent flakies and green to red to silver shifting shimmer. In person, I did feel like the orange was ever so slightly more coral-toned than it showed up in my photos, so keep that in mind if you plan on purchasing!
I used two coats of polish for my swatch photos. The formula was really easy to work with; I didn’t really notice any differences in formula due to the solar effect. This shade does dry completely matte, and a glossy top coat both brightens up the orange pigment and creates a glossy finish like like you see in my photos.
Outdoors and under direct sunlight, the solar effect turns this bright orange polish into a rosy magenta shade.
I also caught some shots of this shade at an in-between stage that wasn’t quite orange and wasn’t quite magenta, but more of a red-toned pink. These two shots were taken outdoors but in indirect sunlight. Here you can really see those iridescent flakies!
