I know these types of polishes typically show better over a base of black but I wanted to see how it would look on its own as well, so I applied three coats of Reluz alone on my middle and pinkie fingers, and two coats over a single coat of SinfulColors Black on Black on my pointer and ring fingers. Unless you looked very closely there wasn't a dramatic difference, but up close, while the ones with the black underwear had a more striking shimmer, the ones on its own had a different, watery quality. By "watery" I don't mean watered down by any means, but more an Ophelia-like otherworldly appearance, as if you are looking down into a deep, dark forest pool.

Cons: the bottle is only 8 ml, versus the typical 14–15 ml size, so you're getting less polish, but since you usually use one layer over another color it should still last you quite a while. Also, the blue-purple-gold color shift isn't terribly original or unique, but there's no getting around that it's still a stunner of a color.
Overall: if you like color-shifting polishes you should definitely check the line out. They have some really beautiful multichrome and holographic polishes!
