Swatch and Review of The Fresh Start Trio from All Mixed Up Lacquers

    I know I can't believe it myself, 2 posts in 2 days but there is a method to this madness! Today I thought it would be fun to take a closer look at some of the polishes available in my current giveaway.  If you haven't entered yet don't worry, there's still time! The giveaway ends on Feb 8th and is open to US residents 18 and older. 

      Let's take a look at the 3 thermal polishes All Mixed Up Lacquers was nice enough to donate as well as provide a set for me to review at a discount. Thermal polishes are a huge trend right now which was why I was so excited to be able to offer these up as part of the prize. This is the Fresh Start Trio.

    The formula for this trio was consistent throughout. While not particularly sheer on the first coat, you definitely need at least 2 coats for full opacity, if you have a distinct or bright white free edge I'd recommend 3 coats. Each polish is shown as two coats plus topcoat. 

     It has been extremely cold here lately so cold in fact that the school that I work for has closed for the week due to the temps. Think -65℉ windchill and threat of frostbite within 4 minutes on exposed skin.  Because of this, my transition shots were very hard to capture. My hands started to shift back to the cold state almost immediately. 

     Frozen B**** Face has a navy to light blue shift with gold flakies. 

    In the cold state, you will see the nice deep navy blue with a sea of golden shimmer. When the polish is in a warm state you see a light ocean blue along with the golden shimmer. 

     A Splash of Optimism is a dark to light shifting thermal nail polish with gold flakies. 

      In a cold state, you see a nice forest green that leans a bit to the army green side thanks to the gold flakies.  Once the polish is warm you get a nice light almost pastel spring green. 

     Change of Heart is a maroon to pink shifting thermal nail polish with gold flakies. 

     Just like the other two polishes in this trio you get the darker color in a cold state and the lighter color in a warm state. In this case, you get a nice rich berry color when the polish is cold and a bright sort of bubblegum pink when the polish is warm. 

     I like all 3 colors in this collection but have to be honest and tell you that Change of heart is my favorite. I actually wore it for a full week on my recent trip to Nashville. When I returned home I had a small chip on the pointer finger of my right hand but very minimal tip wear. 

     Which color do you like best? Will you be entering the giveaway? Be sure to check back tomorrow where I'll be sharing 2 more polishes available to win. Thanks for stopping by and Happy Polishing!
