So I think I’ve found my new favourite polish – thermal colour changing polish! It’s magical, I don’t think I’ve ever played about so much in the sink whilst washing my hands before. The polish is from BornPrettyStore, in shade 110, and if I’m being honest I really wasn’t expecting much. When I saw it in the bottle, the colour looked a bit icky, the formula seemed a bit weird and I didn’t have high hopes for how easy it would be to change it’s colour. I WAS SO WRONG!
The formula was actually pretty good, it applied smoothly and only took two coats (I applied a little thinly on my index finger, you can maybe slightly see that?). It’s also not that icky once it’s on, I’d say a it’s a lavender shade and has a lovely fine glitter going through it. Without top coat, it dries smooth and almost sort of matte looking. (I know this is maybe starting to sound like a review of a product I’ve been sent but I paid for this polish myself, I am just so amazed by it I wanted to give it full credit!)
Before I went any further by adding any stamping, I decided to test it. BOOM! Mind blown. It just has to touch the hot water and it immediately changes, the lavender turns to a beautiful blue. I was not expecting it to work so well, I thought I’d maybe have to be scalding myself with boiling water before I even got a hint of the other shade.
I went with fish for the stamped image, as I liked the playfulness of the blue being the ‘hidden’ colour. At first I thought it was only going to change when I washed my hands in the hot water, but over the past day I’ve found that it does change on it’s own accord due to my body temperature! And that makes it way more awesome. For example, I noticed when I was cross-stitching some of my fingers were turning to blue, whilst at work (on poolside) I was flashing blue, when I’m typing (like right now) all my fingers are blue, and this morning in bed (as I painted these last night) I was bright blue too!
I loved this polish so much I’ve ordered another colour, and I even took a video of it!(Shame it’s such grainy quality, cringe.) Right now the polish is half price (16.06.2016) and it’s free shipping so I’m not sure why you wouldn’t give it a go! Watch the video and let me know if you’re going to try it.

WOAH!! THAT is a colour change 😀 SO cool!
And I love the fishy boney stamp, use it all the time, funky.
I know right?! As I said I really wasn’t expecting it to be that good!
Haha I love fish, and own gazillions (obviously not as that would be some serious over-crowding but I do have 9 tanks so…) so I wondered if wearing their bones was bad luck! I hope not, eeek!
Wait, 9 tanks?!?!? 😀
Hahaha yeah… like 8 fish tanks (3 coldwater, 5 freshwater tropical) and one axolotl tank. I really like fishkeeping!
That sounds amazing!
Now that’s something exciting! Love it! 💕
I’m so glad you think so too! I was playing with it all day haha
Hahah yes I can see that from the wonderful designs you have created while experimenting. Truly awesome! 💕
It is isn’t it! I spent a lot of time looking at my nails that day to see what colour they would be!
