Del Sol Color Changing Polish

 Hey guys!  HAPPY NEW YEARS! Sorry for the long period of absence over the holiday's but can you believe it's actually 2012?! I remember Y2K when everyone was running around saying the world was going to end and buying all the milk, bread and water.  Boy have we come along way! Today I wanted to do my first review on a set of Del Sol color changing nail polish I received for Christmas. I had never heard of this brand before but once I found out that it was color changing polish I couldn't wait to try it out.

Polishes are in order from left to right:
  • Peek-A-Boo -A "clear" top coat like jelly polish.
  • HeartBreaker -A red jelly polish with red and gold fine glitter.
  • Electrick! -Pearlescent baby blue.
  • Rock Star -Blue jelly polish with dark blue and silver fine glitter  

I applied 3 coats of all the polishes to ensure full coverage although they only needed 2 coats. And the application was heaven! I love all polishes that go on like The application processes gets an A+. Oh and this polish dries incredibly fast! I thought that since it was a special polish that the drying time would take forever but I was so wrong! So here's another A+ for not being so time consming.
 Once the polish dried I wanted to see if it would change under any type of light. I held them under the light for one minute and they had not changed at all. So I went outside and here is how the looked in the sun...

When I stepped outside Peek-A-Boo (pinky) and HeartBreak (ring finger) immediately started changing color!! Make sure you keep your eyes on your nails because you can miss it changing colors before your eyes. I was a little disappointed though because I was looking forward to seeing Rock Star (index finger) change and it didn't :-( There was a slight changed with Electrick! but was very slight...can you see it? In comparison to the stickers on the tops of the bottles the 2 of the 4 were definitely off. But all in all I very happy with these polishes because even though 2 of the 4 colors didn't noticeably change they are still beautiful colors.

**FYI- I did not apply a top coat at the time because I was not sure if it would affect the color changing process. After some research applying a top coat is perfectly ok.

Hope this was some help and that you enjoyed it.
