This is straight out of the bottle
This is when the polish "gets cold":
Now the polish is half way warmed:
... and it can will turn pastel mint when it is "hot" - you can see it is a smidgen lighter than in the above picture:
I applied two coats of Pretty & Polished May Flower over Essence XXL Nail Thickener. I used Butter London Hardwear and Essence Better Than Gel Top Sealer Quick Dry (yes, I started to use the Essence Top Coat as second finish as of late).
The shade shifting happens very fast - I would say it takes less than 5 minutes to change from a deep vivid turquoise (think China Glaze Four Leaf Clover) to the minty pastel glitter shown above.
I had the polish rest upside down over night that the brush would be loaded with polish. It actually helped but the polish became a bit more difficult to apply. However the consistency is thin and easy to control. There are rather big flowers in the glitter suspended - you can see two of them camping out on my middle finger).
Final thoughts: I love Pretty & Polished May Flower and it certainly will not be my last from them - probably I will get myself another shade shifter ;-)
I ordered May Flower with Pretty & Polished. They ship internationally at reasonable fees.
Of course I would like to know what you think of this shade shifter!!!
I look forward to reading your comments - thanks for visiting!!!
