Liquid Sky Lacquer ~ Teal it like it is

Liquid Sky Lacquer ~ Teal it like it is  
Thermal scattered holo that shifts between light teal and blue

This is the first thermal polish I’ve ever had, and to be honest I didn’t even know that it was a thermal polish I had got my hands on.

The formula is good, and the polish applies easily. After I had applied the first coat I wondered, like, what the…? – it was as if it got very much lighter when I applied it. So – OK, I figured that a second coat would turn the polish on my nails into the colour in the bottle, but no. Then I applied a third coat, and even though it was opaque, it was still much lighter than in the bottle. So I went online to see if other bloggers had experienced the same thing, and that is when I realized that this wasn’t just an ordinary polish :D <slaps forehead> It changes colour with the temperature. When it’s warm, it’s a light teal colour and when it’s cold, it shifts into a darker blue. My hands are usually cold, but it’s warm here, so that’s why polish didn’t look like it does in the bottle. In fact: This is what it looked like:




The holo is scattered and not very strong, but I’m seriously fascinated by the colours! It almost looks like a gradient!




I went out into the bathroom to test the effect. I held my fingers under the cold water, and behold! Look at the pretty colour that showed up!




Yes, my fingers are wet! You know why! ;)




And this is what it looks like when my fingers are getting warm again – the colour changes from the top of the nails and downwards:




Almost back to normal temperature here:





This is a spectacular polish indeed. I haven’t got anything like it in my stash! I like the darker colour best, so I’m looking forward to wearing this in the winter, where my hands are permanently cold! :D

Great polish, great formula, great effect. It is a fun polish indeed! Coolio!

    1. That's true. And it works even better for girls with longer nails than me, because the tips are more away from the fingers, um.. you know :)

    1. I should have made a little video of it when I put my fingers in and out of the running water, it was actually kind of freaky! :D
