I absolutely love the color of this polish! It's very vibrant and trendy. It does however chip kind of easily, and it doesn't always change colors in the sun (but I love the normal color the most so that doesn't bother me that much). I am definitely thinking of buying it

color change polish

This product didn't cover the fingernail in a smooth manner, the color didn't change as its supposed to and it began chipping/peeling off in a matter of about 8 hours.

Fun! It really works!
Purchased

My daughter loves this stuff! I was surprised by how well it worked. The only reason I didn't give it five stars was because it doesn't last very long and it didn't dry very fast. But it was a lot of fun and it works pretty well!

horrible polish
Sampled

This nail polish is quite possibly the worst I have ever tried. It goes on really streaky and you need at least 3 coats to get a somewhat even color. Maybe it's just the specific color that isn't good (peony) but it doesn't make me want to try the others. I honestely took it off after the 3rd coat because I was so frustrated with it not looking even.

Peony doesn't change colors, and doesn't match the advertised color...
Purchased

I loved the Poppy sample of Ruby Swing in my birchbox this month, so ordered it in Peony and Groupie. Wore the Peony out for the first time today, and I was surprised that not only is it a completely different color than the shade(s) advertised, but it hasn't changed colors any of the times I've gone outside. Granted, it is a little overcast today, but that didn't stop Poppy.

With all that said, I actually love the color - it's a sort of neon peach, totally springy!

i liked the color and the concept, i just didnt like that it was matte and it began to chip in 2 days. It did change color though, which was fun :)

Love the colors

Loved the colors, but wasn't a fan of it without using a shiny top coat--very flat color.

color changing or not color changing

I received the color peony in my April birch box. The color went on very well and I only had to put on two coats. The color of the polish was like a coral orange, on the site it look more like a pastel pink. The only thing is that my color changing polish did not change when i stepped out side. :-( I was really looking forward to that.

Cute idea...
Purchased

But I'm not entirely sure about the execution. It's been raining off and on here so I can't test out the color changing too well on a full mani. I had painted some dots over another color and it changed in the sun for me, but I don't really spend a lot of time outdoors. It does go on thick and is a bit streaky but if you wait a few minutes between coats and use 3 good coats and a quick dry topcoat it won't be quite so tacky; however still chance for some random smudging a couple hours later if you put hands in pockets or the like. I did notice a couple weird air bubbles on two nails and some other imperfections but I think it might have been from my base coat.

I'm not really sure about the scent that's left behind. Before I put on my top coat, which has a very strong scent itself (though it usually fades after a while) the smell reminded me of when I was forced to get perms as a kid. It has the same weird smell that's nice with afternotes of chemical. It gave me a headache on its own, with the top coat added it triggered a migraine. I'm not confident that it wouldn't trigger a migraine all on its own.

All the bad aside, it's a very cute polish that has good coverage. I love the Peony color and if it does change colors like it's supposed to, then that's two gorgeous shades. The color is weird though, at first glance it doesn't look like something I'd like. Even looking at it on my nails it seems a bit more weirdly garish than it actually is. And I like ALL the colors, so being turned off by something is odd for me. But Peony is a color that definitely grows on me. I cannot wait to see the outdoors-red.

I'm very conflicted about this polish. I'd love to try some of the other colors but it's a bit expensive if I have to use weird tricks to get it to dry and don't get to see both colors (I don't mind expensive polish but the shades alone aren't worth the cost; I am paying for the formula...just like with other high quality salon brands.) And I definitely can't justify getting more if it gives me migraines...I'm on a hunt to figure out how to get rid of them now in any way I can! But this was a fun purchase for a spring-to-summer polish and I always like trying something new!
