Born Pretty Store Thermal Top Coat

Hello my lovelies! Happy new year! It's been a long time since I posted on this blog and I won't go into the multiple reasons for that, but I hope to return since I really miss it. I've still been doing my nails almost weekly, mostly without nail art, and I even managed to grow them quite a bit over the holidays. Unfortunately, my job doesn't allow me to wear long nails, so I had to chop them off. There are a lot of cool new things in the nail world that I really want to try out and am excited about. One of the things I really wanted to get my hands on is a thermal color changing top coat* and the lovely people at the Born Pretty Store were kind enough to send one my way. Here's how it looks! 

As you can see from the bottle, this top coat is black when cold and becomes completely translucent when warm. There's also lots of holographic shimmer in there, that is still visible when it becomes translucent. I wanted to test it out over different color bases so I layered it over a darker shade (China Glaze Man Hunt) on most fingers, except for my accent fingers, where I used a lighter shade (China Glaze Secret Peri-wink-le). Here's how it looks warm.

I wasn't sure how this top coat would look over a lighter color, but in the end the lighter nails were my favorites. I think this is better layered over a lighter color because that way the color is a bit more visible when the nails get cold. The darker nails just look black when they are cold.

I've really enjoyed this manicure and wore it for over a week. If you are interested in this top coat, you can find it here. You can also use code MFL91 to get 10% off your order. Hope you enjoyed my first post of 2019 and I hope you have a wonderful new year!
