Claire's Mood-Changing Nail Polish in Wild/Calm Review9:18 PM
Hey guys! I first of all just want to do a little update on my life. I know that I've been posting slightly less often lately than usual and this is because my life has been a bit crazy lately. I've been feeling a lot of stress and have been extra busy at work and at home as well. I thank God that hubby finally found a job, which is such a blessing in this economy, but it does also mean that there has been less time for everything else. I don't think I've been getting enough sleep and I've had stress dream-nightmares for the last couple of days. I'm sure it's a natural thing that will eventually pass though, so I just want to say thank you for being supportive of the blog since you all really give me strength at times. <3
I've been trying to squeeze in times to edit some older videos that are backlogged and I had promised that I would post this nail polish review so I uploaded it tonight! It's from the same day that I recorded my Paul&Joe Alice in Wonderland set review if you recognize my outfit. ;)
This is a nail polish that I had heard a lot of hype about among the nail polish blogs that I follow. It's a line of color changing polishes from Claire's, a US-based accessories chain in nearly every mall I've ever been to. I picked up two colors, a teal-turquoise one and the one in my review here, Wild/Calm, a pink-to-purple nail polish.
Here's the color of the polish when my fingers are medium-colder:
And here's the color when my fingers are warm:
But the best way to really appreciate this polish is to have longer nails since it can give a cool funky-french manicure effect with a gradient of pink-to-purple on the nail tips. This naturally happens since your hands are warm but the nail hanging past the finger is colder so it changes to the secondary color.
Just because it looks so different in changes of lightling, I took more pics a couple days later. All the same polish! Look how dark and light it gets. I think it's pretty impressive!
I know it's probably slightly childish of me and I'll admit I don't go into Claire's very often but I just thought this was wicked. The only downside that just KILLED this for me was that it chipped very quickly! Not quite as quickly as my matte Zoya polishes, but it had some pretty good chips after the second day. Only because it's so cool is it worth it. Honestly, I know I will wear this again since it's just like you have 2 polishes in 1. I'll be interested to see what the teal-turquoise Mood polish is like in comparison terms of wear. No swatch pics yet, but it is a cream polish unlike this sparkly one. ^.^
Anyway, hope you enjoyed the review and pics. If you have any words of encouragement to get me through another long work week, I'd love to hear it! It never hurts to share out more love, am I right?
