BornPretty Store Color Changing Polish

I've been wanting to try color changing polishes like forever. So when Born Pretty Store sent me one to review, I was extremely happy.

I picked this purple/sky blue shade among the 10 shades available... The brand is called Ylin Mood. It comes in a box with chinese writing, so I did not get a single thing it was trying to say... And I'm not sure about the size of the bottle as well. But as far as my eagle eyes can tell, it is a 5ml/8ml bottle...

When I opened the box, I found this...


As you can see, the bottle looks like the polish is not properly mixed inside. So I gave it a long shake... Nothing. I rolled it in my palms and gave it a good shake again... Still nothing... So I gave up and opened the bottle for application. To my surprise, the polish inside was not marbled like the bottle, but a solid blue color...

Anyway, I applied two coats on my bare nails. The formula is a little thick and application is a little tricky. But by the second coat, the formula evens out.

Below is the polish right after 2 coats of application. I did not use a topcoat. I thought maybe it would mess up the color changing formula...


Anyway, after it completely dried, I dipped my fingers in cold tap water and took a picture. It really is a lovely sky blue as you can see...


 Then, for experimental purposes, I dipped 4 fingers into hot water... They immediately changed to a nice purple... In the picture below, you can see the change...


I wished my nails were longer so I could show you both colors together. To achieve that look, I dipped my fingers halfway in the hot water. When I took the picture, I saw that some of the polish had chipped. I don't know why this happened, maybe it was because I did not wear a topcoat, or maybe because my bottle was a defected one... :(


I will give this polish another try when my nails are longer, and I will use a top coat this time.

Anyway, if you want to test this polish on your own nails, you can order it from Born Pretty Store for $7.84. Remeber they ship worldwide, free... And if you use my 10% off coupon, you might get it for a lower price...
