Mood polish!

FINALLY! I got my pictures uploaded and now I'm totally going to spam you with pictures of Claire's Mood Polish. This polish is pretty sensitive to temperature, and each polish had a "cold" color and a "hot" color. What happened with me was that the color on my nailbed tended to be the "hot" color, while my tips would be the "cold" color. Instant funky french manicure! I thought it was pretty cool. :)

There are five colors in this collection:
Wild/Calm - A pink/purple with lots of shimmer, and my personal favorite of the bunch
Innocent/Daring - Grey/beige-ish-mustard-ish-yellow-ish.. I don't think there is a person alive who would look good wearing that ugly ass beige/mustard yellow color.
Peaceful/Confident - Teal/Blue. Pretty enough, but the color change was extremely subtle.
Fabulous/Funky - Magenta/Neon Pink. This was wayyy more neon than I was expecting!
Happy/Earthy - Green/Neon Yellow. This one was BRIGHT. I mean, like, highlighter bright.

I took a few photos of each. Enjoy the picspam!

Wild/Calm - purple is the "cold" color and pink is the "hot" color.

Fabulous/Funky. In the first pic, you can see where I dipped my pointer finger and middle finger in cold water to try to make the color difference really visible. This one was also difficult to photograph.

  1. I didn't like any of these when I saw them in store. Looking at your swatches though, I HAVE to have that purple! The blue is nice too. They grey and yellow is icky! It reminds me of the colors of the wall tiles at my school... gross.

  2. @Heather - Honestly, the purple/pink is the only one I'd buy again, knowing what I know now.

  3. I want these! maybe just the pink/purple or the blue. but I keep seeing these awesome polishes at claire's when I go into get hair bows and stuff and get them home and BAM! I got a big pile o' suck on my nails. and I have no free edge so, i'd just have a regular sucky polish.

  4. Hiya!

    I just thought you should know that a well-known African brand, TipTop Nails South Africa, used your picture without permission and slated your cuticles. I found it a disgracefully low-brow way to market and told them so.

    My best (and I think your nails rock, whatever they say!),
