Hot damn! Thermals!

So it seems the latest, hottest trend in polish right now is a thermal polish. In case you're wondering a thermal polish is one that changes colors when it's warm and cold. Almost like a mood ring for your nails!  
I recently got my hands on two thermals that I had been lusting over, Polish Addict's Alter Ego and Bellskandi 1961. 

This is Polish Addicts Alter Ego. It's a beautiful holo nude/gold color that turns slightly darker when cold.  It's so incredibly holo and pretty, it doesn't need the thermal. But the color change is so fun!!  This is two coats with one coat of top coat. As always her formulas are a dream to put on, it goes on smooth and covers great. I hope Laura makes some more thermals in the future!

The second is the latest in my collection. Bellskandi 1961 
This is definitely a more noticeable color change. It's an almost neon mint green jelly. When it's warm it's white, and changes to green when cold. This is three coats with no undies and a top coat. If you'd like, you can use a white undie, since the jelly is sheer. It does take a few coats to build but it's worth it!!  The application is wonderful. It's a nice thick (not too thick, but not runny) formula that seems to stay put!  No dragging or running. 
 I have been after this polish for about a month now and I thought I missed the restock because it was sold out 4 minutes after she listed it!  But she had a second restock later that night and I rushed out of the gym to order it in time!  I also got a matching ring with my order for being one of the first five orders. 
Since discovering thermals, suddenly daily chores are more fun!  You can watch your polish change colors when you're doing dishes or laundry!  I find myself doing more of those two with a thermal on, and enjoying it!

I'll leave you with a few more pictures of the two polishes. As always, Polish Addict can be found at 

And Bellskandi can be found at Bellskandi.com

Happy shopping ;)

Also, you may notice how much longer and nicer my nails have gotten lately. I was recently gifted essie grow faster. And it works!  Well!  And quick!  So check that out if you're looking for quick growth.
