Unlike the Claire's Mood-Changing nail polish that I reviewed earlier, where the colors of the nail polish would change based on temperature. These Del Sol polishes change to a completely different shade under UV ray only. This means, even when you are behind glass and you see that it's sunny outside, the colors won't change. But as soon as you step outside on a sunny day (or even not so sunny days because UV rays are everywhere), the colors would immediately change magically!
There were so many shades of polish to choose from. Considering that they were $10 a pop, and I wasn't able to test how well they applied on my finger nails in the store, I grabbed two for myself (but now I want more!!!). Peak-A-Boo is a sheer pink shade indoors, but turns into bright coral in the sun. Ruby Slipper is a glittery silver shade indoors, but turns into a nice shade of glittery holiday red in the sun. Both shades are sheer enough to be applied on top of another regular polish, so that indoors the regular polish shows, but once outdoors, the more vibrant new color appears. The polish consistency is not too thick (even the glittery one), and very easy to apply. They also dry amazingly fast.
Here you can see all the colors that Del Sol offers and the color that each polish turns into under UV ray.
I present to you a swatch of Ruby Slipper on top of Essie Pink is the Link that I did on my nails last week:
Essie Pink is the Link as base color.
Del Sol Ruby Slipper on top to give the manicure a festive glittery look.
On top of each bottle, the outdoor color would be shown on the sticker. My thumbnail next to the bottle cap is in the indoor shade behind glass.
Once stepped outside, voila! The intensity of the shade could be a lot stronger with more coats applied, here I only applied 2 coats of Del Sol polish.
Del Sol color-changing nail polishes are now officially my new favorite polishes!
