Hello my lovelies! It's Friday and I'm starting my weekend early this week. There's also something else to celebrate today because this is my 400th post. I won't make a big deal out of it and just show you something fun I received from the Born Pretty Store last week. It's one of those "mood polishes" that changes color based on temperature. I always wanted to play with something like this, so this was the perfect occasion.

The polish comes in a medium sized bottle and retails for just under $8. I'm not sure about the quantity of this, as most writing is in Chinese. The bottle looks a little weird because it doesn't have one single color. I think this is normal because it's hard for the whole bottle to have the same temperature. I applied it directly on the nail, with no base coat so it could be closer to my skin.
As you can see, the polish turns yellow at warmer temperatures and green in the cold. The part of my nail that is in direct contact with my fingertip is warmer, while the tips are colder and that's why I had two colors on my nails. I played a lot with heat and water so you will be seeing a lot of pictures in this post.
The polish is a little sheer and even though I did 3 coats there were still some bald spots on the nail. It dries to a rubbery texture and a little uneven, so I applied one coat of top coat to make it shiny. I was a little worried of it staining since I didn't use a base coat, but I was pleasantly surprised by the fact that it doesn't stain at all. Here's a photo in the sun. You can see that my hands were getting colder.
And then they got completely cold.
I also played with warm and cold water and made a little collage for your viewing pleasure.
This is definitely a fun nail polish. It's a great way to do some sort of gradient if you are not good at nail art. It's also tons of fun to play around with it. If you want to give it a try, you can find it here. Don't forget that you can get a 10% discount by using code MFL91 at checkout.
