MooD Color Change Innocent/Daring

*looks around* Notice something missing? :D Yep, I said once I placed my Models Own order I'd take down the ticker and I just recieved the confirmation email for placing my order!!!!!!! {~ I'm that excited. All 8 Beetlejuices, plus the 3-in-1 clear coat plus the free black eyeliner pencil. Could take up to four weeks and I'm already antsy from waiting. For all of an hour so far.... It did end up coming out to about $86 thanks to the fluctuating exchange rate. That's ok, though, because now I know that the A Englands will be $14.75 (at the moment, at least) and not $14.50 and these are all good things to know. When I'm ready to place an order I'll have to double check the current exchange rate at the time. Speaking of monetary fluctuations, gas went down again. :D I'm not holding my breath that it'll get down to under $3 ever again, but $3.55 is way nicer than $3.89. Ok, enough of that. On to the polish!

Yesterday I decided to dig in and try another of the color changing polishes (if that wasn't painfully obvious by the title) and I chose the purple Innocent/Daring. I really like that it doesn't have that awful "you can tell we made this for kids" formula that's made me wary of scented polishes. It went on smoothly and dried in a reasonable amount of time (less than 4 hours :p) with only a hint of shrinkage at the tips. I didn't get quite as many transition photos this time, but it hasn't been that cold in the room.









This polish really is super neat. Especially if you go in and out of air conditioning frequently (unavoidable as Texas heats up for summer). Even going from room to room I was granted the super awesome "instant french" effect!



Cool. Another cool thing I'll have to remember to get a picture of next time. I was outside hosing off our a/c filter and got some cold water on my nails and had the pinkish background and dark purple spots where the water hit it. XD Now, I remember as a kid we had a bad habit of "breaking" our color change toys by putting them in the freezer or on the radiator to force a more instant/dramatic color change. I don't know if that would happen with this polish. I don't know if I'd ever end up wearing it long enough to discover if the color changing pigments wear out at all, but I sent Sandy one for her birthday (Happy Birthday!!!) and she'll wear polish for months at a time, so maybe she can clue us in on this.

Had a picnic in the park with Aaron's mom today. That was nice, minus the heat. Still have Subway leftovers so now we get to run out and see what we're gonna feed my parents for supper. lol Week's almost over! Not like it matters much to me, but hope all of you workin' and schoolin' people are making it through.

    1. I actually liked the purple, the shimmer made it less boring. I have a blue one with glitter in it also. They're not spectacular colors, but the color shift is definitely fun. :)

  3. Is that the same brand as the one you sent me? Mine was very flat and mattey (lol) i couldn't wait for mine to dry as soon as it did i ran to the sink and turned on the cold water! Jd laughed at me like i was a little kids! :D I had mine on for a few hours and it started chipping...i didn't add a top coat cuz i didn't know if it would effect the color change effect. I like the color blue and the "cold" is a pretty deep blue but now i want to get one like your that isn't as subtle of a color change :D I did add some glitter over top but have been to busy today to check to see if it still changes color...will let you know later ;) And i don't always wear it for months....just sometimes! LOL i thought about painting my toes with it...that i do leave on forEVER :)

    Yay on ordering the Beetle Juice polish! Can't wait to see it!

    1. Yay! Topcoat shouldn't affect the color change. Even a glittery one. I used a regular clear topcoat and it still changed fine. So glad you had fun with it. Even if it did start chipping. :/
