Ruby wing color changing polish

Maybe I should give it a second chance but I love the idea of it but it came on really clumpy and was pretty hard to get off.

Clumpy and impossible to take off

So, the pro is that this polish does in fact change color in the sun.
Everything else about it is not cool.
Like any glitter nail polish, it goes on kind of clumpy. And, taking it off requires major surgery. I found that wrapping my nails in cotton balls soaked in nail polish remover for like 10 minutes did the trick.
So not worth the effort.

don't waste your money
Purchased

I was so excited to receive this polish and fully expected it to perform the way that it advertised. It does not. Nothing happens from indoor to outdoor. I am extremely disappointed that I wasted ten bucks on this polish. Never again.

not a fan

This polish did not go on even or smoothly, even after several applications. It was streaky and rubbed off easily.

Watery and didn't really change
Purchased

I ordered this in Peony, and it was pretty watery to put on. It could have been thicker. Even with two coats, it chipped the next day. It maybe was a little bit darker outside, but there was no dramatic change.

My sample did not change colors :(

Super sad - saved this for my pedicure for my trip to Hawaii and it did not change colors whatsoever. Kitten heels was cute, but not a shade I would choose otherwise. Bummed.

Awful

This was awful polish. Horrible to apply evenly and the color didn't have the drastic change like the picture shows. Was also difficult to remove. Not worth it at all. I threw it away.

Thick, gloopy, and stayed one color

I received a hot pink which was supposed to get darker in the sun. It really didn't change at all. Also, it was terribly thick and hard to get on. It was like bad tinkerbell polish. Disappointing considering color-changing polish is a great idea.

Horrible color and quality

The color payout was dreadful and the nail polish itself was a struggle. Realistically how often are you going to need a gold nail polish.

Weird color change

This polish has colors that change in the opposite way of how I think they should. Bright pink inside and dark red outside. It's weird, and I don't like either of them. Will NEVER wear.
