Paint it Pretty- More Thermal Polishes

     Hello everyone, I know it's been awhile since I've posted and I'm posting outside of my normal schedule. I hope that doesn't throw everyone off. I thought once summer vacation hit, I'd have more time to devote to writing posts. Well settling into a new house and going on 2 vacations had put a damper on my free time. Don't get me wrong I'm loving every minute of it even if I've discovered that even on vacation you need more hours in the day. Anyway, I didn't start this post with the intention of giving you an update on my entire life, I'm writing it to show you more pretty thermal nail polishes from Paint it Pretty Polish. And they just happen to be available for purchase right now! 

     Once again this will be a picture heavy post so I'll be keeping my words short and sweet. Each polish is photographed in my light box using daylight bulbs.

Indigo Fire

     Color: In the bottle, Indigo Fire is a blurple polish with aqua shimmer. In a warm state, it's a pale purple with aqua shimmer and shifts to a deep purple with aqua shimmer when cold.

     Application: Smooth and easy application with tons of sparkle in each layer. Very easy to control where the polish went. It is a bit on the sheer side and shown here as 3 thin coats plus top coat.

     Finish: Dries to a smooth glossy finish.

     My overall thoughts are that I love this polish. I like thermal polishes but I'm especially drawn to ones that have extreme color shifts to them. I like that distinct difference to the colors and find myself checking out my nails more often when wearing them just to catch the color shift.

Cheers to 4 Years

     Color: In the bottle Cheers to 4 Years is a lilac purple polish with silver and pink shimmer. In a warm state, you get an icy pink color with silver shimmer that shifts to a pale lavender with pink undertones and silver shimer when cold.

     Application: Smooth and even but because it's a shimmer you get a bunch of brushstrokes. A bit more opaque than Indigo Fire so only 2 coats were needed to reach full opacity. Shown here as 2 coats plus top coat.

     Finish: Dries to a smooth semi-gloss finish but suffers from brushstrokes, the addition of top coat will help to hide most of them.

     My overall thoughts are that I like both colors that Cheers to 4 Years shifts to. I just wish they were in 2 separate polishes. The color shift is a little too subtle for my personal taste. That being said I did end up wearing this one for almost a week. Which is something that I rarely do.

     Indigo Fire and Cheers to 4 Years are both available for purchase right now from Paint it Pretty Polish along with the other 3 thermal polishes I shared with you a few weeks ago. And don't forget to check them out on Facebook to keep up with all the latest news. Thanks for stopping by and Happy Polishing!
