Can't decide between two nail polish hues? The pros at Ruby Wing have come up with a solution to the ultimate polish conundrum: color-changing polish. Wear one vibrant shade indoors, and embrace a totally different color when the sun's UV rays hit your nails, thanks to the brand's SolarActive® Technology. Each Ruby Wing polish is non-toxic, vegan, and environmentally safe—plus has a light floral scent
I donâ€™t know how it works, but it does! This nail polish changes colors in direct sunlight. I received a sample of Ruby Wing nail polish in Cowgirl as a Birchbox sample. I was very skeptical about the color change â€“ the bottle itself is not affected by sunlight. Apply a couple of coats and step outside to see your nails change from a clear base with gold glitter to a dark pink base with gold glitter. The change only happens in direct sunlight and quickly fades if you move your hand into shade. The polish also will not work on an overcast day. The polish had been durable without chipping or flaking on my second day of wear. Overall â€“ just a super fun! I am excited to try other products by Ruby Wing.5
I'm obsessed with nail polish, so this was something perfect to spice up my collection!5
I like this polish. It goes on smoothly and the color change is phenomenal.5
First thing that I have received in my birchbox that I had to buy love the gold and love the copper looking color it changes to when I'm out5
I painted the bright pink/red color on my toe nails and it has been a nice little ray of sunshine during this extraordinarily cold month. I definitely will be rocking this polish in the spring and summer as well when my toes will actually be visible in public. I am a huge fan!5
I got the Kitten Heels color in my box and it was so bright looking that I was reluctant to try it. I decided to do a quick sample on my thumbnail and it turned out looking really cute. The texture is great and it applies nicely with no streaks. I haven't seen the color change yet, but I'm looking forward to it.5
I received the pink/red combo in my February box. I haven't noticed a color change when outside, but the pink is such a fabulous color I couldn't be more pleased. I love how easy it was to apply, it went on without any bumps or ridges and only needed 2 coats for an opaque finish. I did not apply a top coat and have been wearing it for 3 days now without a single chip!5
I love the concept of color changing nail polish, and this is the best one I've ever used.5
After seeing the product photos, I thought the glitter itself would change colors. Instead the glitter stayed gold and the clear coating changed from well... clear to a bright pink in the sunlight.
It's a really fun product. I saw several reviews trashing it but I'm not sure how your coworkers would notice it changes colors and is "unsuitable" for anyone over the age of 10 like some reviewers claim.
I did not use a base or top coat and the glitter bits feel a bit rough and snag on things, but I think that's user error on my part. It dried pretty quickly and didn't smell any worse than any other nail polish. I will definitely be buying this product for myself and for my niece.
I paint my nails at home and I have over 150 polishes. I got the Kitten Heels Pink/Red sample. I love it. It goes on thick and I only needed one coat. I've had it on for over a week and it's just starting to chip at the tips of 5 of my nails. I would buy more of it, but I don't like the other color Birchbox offers so I'll wait until my sample is gone. It doesn't change color from temperature, only from sunlight and only outside, not from sunlight coming in though windows.5
