Pretty but didn't actually change colors
Sampled

Mine doesn't change colors outside. It stays gold all the time. I'm not sure if it's because I used a topcoat? It is still a nice gold glitter though.

just ok
Sampled

Wasn't too excited for this. It does what it says but I had to apply several coats of it. Cheaper easily even with a top coat. My daughter loves it though and great for a 4 yr old that loves to have her nails painted. So needless to say it went in her stash of polishes.

Not sure it works
Sampled

The glitter seemed to be more appropriate for kids but I thought I would try it anyways. It was supposed to change colors in the sun but that seemed to never happen.

Gold Greatness
Purchased

I have the gold which turns red in the sunlight. It is funky and fun. I love the intensity of the shimmer, but I do have problems with the fact that it is hard to get off. Putting a clear lacquer over it helped.

long lasting
Sampled

This polish lasted longer than most other quality polishes I have used. Mine did not change in the sun, not sure how long they need to be exposed, but I did like the indoor color

Interesting idea
Purchased

This nail polish is fun. I love the color changing aspect. The glitter was slightly difficult to remove, but perfect for someone like me who is indecisive on their nail polish color.

Loved the color...
Sampled

I actually liked the color-change aspect (I got the gold/magenta) and it was definitely long-wearing. The real problem is I just can't wear a lot of glitter nail polish, and I really hate taking it off. But for a cute accent, it's quite nice.

Great color, but doesn't change?
Sampled

I'm not a huge fan of bright pink nail polish, but this polish in Kitten Heel has quickly changed my mind. It's a great color, however, mine won't change in the sun.

not sure I want my nails to smell

I'm not really a fan of scented nail polishes. WIth that said the color changing is really neat. Have had multiple people compliment.

long dry time
Purchased

I really liked the concept of color changing polish. However, i do not like the formula. Each coat takes a very long time to dry (i needed 3 coats). Even after an hour if i bumped my nails it would leave a mark on the polish.
