Untried Polish Challenge 13: In Season

Ugh...I've been sick with a cold all weekend. I'm so done with this =(
It's going away now, but I've still got a sinus infection and seriously stuffed up. My ears hurt...
The worst part is the aaallllmost sneezes. The sharp intake of breath, ticked nose and then...nothing. And then my eyes water like crazy. =/

Lighter news!!
This day of the challenge is 'In Season'. Here I picked a nice coraly-pink color. I am not sure about this polish, though.


 This is a Claire's mood changing polish. 3 coats. Can I say it? Im going to: Shitty formula. There is no other adjective that can describe it! (Goodbye, family friendly blog!) It dried with a rubber finish, which is fine, but not what I wanted at all. Even after 3 coats there is still drag. It's just...bad! This is at room temp. Just sitting on my nails a while. Definitely more cold than not.

 Here it is after running it under hot water.

 Cold water. Basically the same as the first pic. I'm really thinking room temp is the same as cold just because I was cold for the first pic. Yeah, probably it!

 I wanted that natural gradient look you see with most mood polishes. I had to cheat and use an ice cube on the tips after hot water. I had to move fast so I couldn't even dry my hands!


This is after a few pats on a towel and a few snaps of the camera. Probably all of 15-20 seconds after the previous pic. As you can tell, the darker is already fading to light. Sitting here typing this i do notice a TINY color difference. My fingers are no longer icy cold, so that helps I'm sure.

  2. Awh, too bad you are sick, I hope you get better soon.

    I keep thinking about picking up colour changing polish for the dark tips, I didn't know that some were like this. Great to know!

  3. Feel better!!! I had some health problems earlier in the month, which basically ate up the humongous lead time I had on the challenge ;)

    Claire's is a ripoff, waaaay overpriced for not so good polishes with fancy effects. I had a glowy one and it dried up right away and didn't even glow that much. But damn, yours is at least a beautiful color!!

  4. i just found a bunch of these claires mood polishes that i hunted down when they originally came out but never used. this one looks really nice on you. great shade. not sure if i am going to keep mine. i kind of prefer the uv color changers and i don't like this bottle shape. perhaps i will swatch them before i give them away.
