Deborah Lippmann Ray of Light

I like copper polishes and I really like blue and copper together so Ray of Light caught my interest real fast when I read/heard about it. I purchased this from and I've never bought from there but I had a coupon code (C11289 for free shipping and/or C11533 for $5 off $25 or more) and I went through Mr. Rebates for a refund so I paid below retail. I'm glad I did because I can't say that I love it even though the color combination is one of my favorites. The formula isn't what I expect from Deborah Lippmann polishes. It's a bit gummy and thick and I know thinner will help that issue but I don't think I should have to tinker with a brand new polish especially one in this price range. 

I find the flakes to be a pinkish copper and would have preferred a pure copper but that is a personal thing. They do have a subtle duochrome quality where the flakes shift to green at certain angles which is sweet. I'm a bit on the fence on this one. I though I would love it the minute I put it on but I only like it and I have this urge to tweak it. Maybe if the base was a bit lighter so the flakes showed better? I am looking forward to dupes of this color coming out. Hopefully some USA drugstore flake polishes will be seen in the very near future. That would be awesome! 

I wore two coats over a dark midnight blue - China Glaze Up All Night.
