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 purchased this in the shade Poppy because I really liked the sample I received in a Birchbox (that one was the shade Ride 'Em Cowgirl).
This polish's formula is very nice -- smooth and creamy and very easy to apply. It took two coats to reach opacity.
Poppy is a very bright, almost Barbie hot pink indoors... and completely changes to a beautiful deep berry purple in sunlight! (And, as a bonus, in dappled sunlight or during the transformation process, it's a cherry red color!)
I have found that over time (we're talking, like, ten days after application), the polish seems to darken a bit. I think that's probably because of changing shades several times? But shame on me for leaving my manicure untouched for that long! (It's just the color-changing is so fun!)
The one thing about this nail polish that I'm not ecstatic about is the scent. Instead of smelling like poppies, it sort of just smells like vaguely-poppy-esque nail polish smell. Like a mixture of floral and nail polish, which, honestly, isn't really better than straight-up nail polish smell. It doesn't smell worse than any other polish, though it is fairly bizarre to be able to smell it even on your dry nails. I would be just as happy with this polish without the "scented" business. It's just "eh".
All in all, I really love this nail polish! If you like having a secret different nail color up your sleeve (or, just, very close to your sleeve?), then this is the stuff!
I got this as one of the samples in one of my first birchboxes. It took me a while to get up the nerve to try it simply because I wasn't really doing glitter polish yet at that time and it seemed too flashy for me. But I kept hold of it in case I ever wanted to glitz myself up for some reason. Then, things changed and I started experimenting with more flamboyant looks in hair, makeup and nails and my sample of this stuff became one of my favorite polishes. My boyfriend's daughter came over and tried it and proclaimed it the best gold glitter she's ever tried...and of course the color changing properties made her extremely happy. I got her a bottle for her birthday. Shortly after that, I was ditzing around in my bathroom and DROPPED my beloved sample bottle (it was such a good sized sample it wouldve lasted me a long time) and it broke all over my bathroom tile floor. I was soooo heartbroken. I tried to clean it up but there is still glitter in the grout. The first thing I did after cleaning it up was to order a new, full size bottle of the same thing because it has become the nail polish that I cannot live without...and furthermore, it's becoming the nail polish my friends cannot live without too. This is awesome stuff.5
I cannot say enough about how great this polish is. I receive so many compliments when I wear the polish, it makes it hard to want to do a color change! The gold glitter is different shapes and reflects many fun colors, all the while the base coat changes from clear to a pretty pink. This polish is great all year round!5
I love glitter nail polish, but we all know that putting layers upon layers of glitter nail polish is such a hassle when you have to take it off.
In order to have the gold glitter show up better, I first painted a layer of white nail polish, then 2 layers of the gold glitter and finished it off with a fast drying top coat.
I wasn't sure how pink/red it would change, but out in full bright sunlight the gold completely transformed! I'm in love with this nail polish since I'm such an indecisive person.
I call this my chunky monkey polish. I used my points to get it and I love it. So do m friends. I got more complements on this polish than a lot of the others I use.5
This was my favorite color to wear this summer. Long lasting, easy to apply. Got lots of compliments on it!5
My 10 year old really liked it and had fun with it .im really happy this came in my box! Thank you !5
I bought this for an employee of mine who collects nail polish. I haven't used it but I did take the bottle outside and it did change colors. I'd say that the red color, at least while it's still in the bottle, is more of a reddish purple than an in your face red. I'm tempted to buy it myself.5
This nail polish is a great one. It doesn't just glimmer and shine in one color, but two! This nail polish changes colors from the sunlight on usually how strong it is. Once, I was on a beach and it was dark red, but another time I was in class and the sun was shining through the window and it gave it a pretty pink color! There are so many varieties of nail polish and this one is definitely one of my favorites!5
I love the variety you get with these color changing nail polishes. They don't chip as easily as some of the other brands and look great both inside and outside. The perfect addition to my nail polish stash.5
