Ruby Wing Cinnamon Buns

I've got a beautiful, color-changing metallic shade to show you today from Ruby Wing called Cinnamon Buns! Indoors and in shade, Cinnamon Buns is a shimmering, rose-tinted shade of bronze with a gleaming yellow gold duochrome. The duochrome on this polish is very strong, which I love! There is a light cinnamon sugar scent to this polish--not too overpowering, but enough to be noticeable when your hands are near your face. I wore this manicure for several days without topcoat and found the scent faded after about a day.

The color shift on this polish is pretty dramatic. In direct sunlight, it transforms into a deep gunmetal shade with pops burgundy shimmer. Gorgeous!

Both colors are stunning, but unfortunately, there's some room for improvement with the formula. It went on pretty goopy and even with extra time between coats, it would start to glob together as I tried to apply the next layer. I recommend applying thin coats with some added downtime between layers. Ruby Wing's polishes will change colors even when worn with topcoat. Without topcoat, the shift is pretty instantaneous as soon as you hit sunlight, while with topcoat is still quick but takes a little bit longer.

Although the formula needed a little work, both shades of this polish are still absolutely stunning. I'm really impressed with how dramatically different the indoor and outdoor versions are! Which one do you like best?

Disclosure: This polish was sent to me for my honest review. For more information, please see my disclosure policy.
