Press Sample Purchased by Me
Over the next little while I'll be putting a hold on nail art and trying to get through this stack of reviews that I have piling up! The amount of schoolwork I've had this term has been out of this world so I haven't been able to get these up until now. Today I have two really pretty polishes to share with you from a new to me indie brand Mrs. P's Nail Potions. First up I have a wicked colour changing polish, Gold Digger!
This is the polish in it's natural warm state. My nails are pretty short here, but you can see where I have free edge the polish changes from a deep gold to a deeper brown. This is three coats without topcoat. I wanted to capture the colour change first incase top coat affected it.
Here is the polish right after I dunked my nails in cold water. My house was pretty warm so I took this picture right away while my hands were all wet to get the full colour change for you guys.
These are taken as my hands were warming back up. I still had a drop of water on my nails in the first image so the colour stayed darker there. It took about 5+ minutes for the polish to completely change back to it's warm state colour.
I like that the colour change was significant enough that you could really tell the difference, however it was subtle enough that it took on a gradient look over my free edge. I want to wear this again when I have longer nails to really get the gradient look going on. A note on the formula of Gold Digger, the first coat goes on almost translucent and hardly looks like you have any polish on your nails. It will build to this after 3 coats but I was slightly alarmed when I applied my first coat.
I'm totally obsessed with mint right now, ok all the time, so this polish was right up my alley. The glitter does get a little buried in the base and can tend to look a little bumpy so I would recommend a few coats of top coat to smooth everything out. The base is also frosty and lends itself to brushstrokes so be careful during application.
This was my first experience with a colour changing polish and I can see the appeal! You have instant nail art without really trying which is awesome. This goldy-brown colour isn't something I would normally reach for, but it is an interesting colour none the less.
You can purchase Mrs. P's Nail Potions here in her etsy shop for $7.97 USD or $8.00 CAN. Spring Fling is in stock (at time of posting) but Gold Digger is not. Keep up with Mrs. P's Nail Potions on Facebook and Twitter for all the latest news!
