Island Girl - Colour Change Polish

Tuesday, 22 January 2013

I have some ace polish to show you today.... look! COLOUR CHANGING!  I got a whole host of Island Girl polishes when I visited Vegas last year and I love them, they are brilliant.  It looks like a few of the indie polish makers are starting to produce some colour change polish too, so I suspect us Brits need to give good old Barry of the M a nudge to see if he can get us sorted out over here.

Island Girl is available specificly in ABC stores in America, and from what I believe they only have this polish in Vegas and Hawaii, but maybe they've extended that out, I'm not sure, however I'm pretty sure you can buy it online.  I picked up about 12 of these polishes and also quite a lot of their neon colour polishes as they are pretty special too.

So.  Onto the actual polish itself.  This polish is dark green when you apply it, but when your hands heat up, it turns to a bright lime green, basically giving you a gradient effect without any effort.  Generally it will stay as this gradient effect whilst your nail beds are warm.  Unfortunately I am naturally cold of hands and the weather at the moment is pretty damn freezing so I had to get a little bit of help in getting the colour to change for me (hot water!).

So, you can see here, how bright it is the second your hands get HOT.

And as a final shot, dipping one finger back into cold water, you can see the contrast.

I love these polishes, I can't believe I've been neglecting them for so long!  They are so fun.  If not only because you can keep dipping your hands into water and shout "LOOK! MY NAILS ARE CHANGING COLOUR!!!" to all the bemused people around you.  Not that I do that, ever.  No.
