Recently I have been contacted by Born Pretty Store to choose a bunch of nail art products from their site, test them and write some reviews. I found the idea very appealing since I've been drooling over their products for quite a while so I said yes. After a while I received my first package from them and the products I chose to review smiled at me from a pretty little pack: two stamping plates, a stamping nail polish and a color changing nail polish - I was so excited!
Today I am going to tell you my opinion about... dum dum duuuum! The color changing nail polish, which you can find here. ^_^

First of all I want to tell you a few details about the product, in general.
What the site says about the product:
"A new color-changing polish and no fade, no cracking!
It changes pigment depending on body temperature and chemistry.
You shall see the polish work its magic that the fingertip comes of darker color then the
other part of nails when your nails under a cold air condition.
Professional quality nail polish ingredients which give glossy and long-lasting nail color.
Allow you to create beautiful nail designs in short time.
Good colors for all occasions."
What I think about the product:
- I have the blue/purple color changing polish (no. 103) and since my room is facing the sun all day, it's pretty warm, so, inside the bottle, the nail polish looks blue all the time. It's a very nice shade of light blue or baby blue which turns purple when it's placed in a colder environment.
- The change of color is very obvious and I kept playing with my nails in warm/cold water just to see it merging from blue to purple and back. ^_^ I even "annoyed" a few people (you know who you are) with this when I was feeling cold. :)))
- The nail polish is easy to apply and becomes opaque and shiny in two coats. It also dries really fast, in less than a minute, so I advise you to apply it quickly, to avoid streaks on the first layer. The second layer blends in beautifully and evens up on its own almost magically. Seriously. I loved that!
- I didn't know how a top coat would affect the nails so I didn't use any. Surprisingly (in a good way), the nail polish lasted on my nails for a week without chipping at all and the colors kept changing so the effect didn't ware off at all! :D Here is a picture of my nails after a week:
How the nail polish looks on the nails
This is how the nail polish usually looks on my nails:
The tips are a little darker than the rest of the nail because I have long nails and the free part of the nail is not in contact with my skin so it's a little colder.
The nails become all blue when it's really warm or they are in contact with warm/hot water:
This is a transition picture, from warm to cold:
As you can see, the color is a little darker than the shade in the bottle because I had just sunk my nails into cold water for a few seconds.
This is how the nails looked after I had my hands under a cold jet of water for about a minute:
As you can see the color is a light shade of purple, but the contrast with the light blue is very visible.
I really enjoyed wearing this nail polish on my nails, but wearing it simple is just not my thing so I did a water marble design on two nails (using other polishes that had similar colors) and added some star shaped rhinestones on the other nails. You can find awesome nail art products on the Born Pretty Store site. ^_^
