Pretty & Polished Candy Corn, Day Trippin’, and Spring Fling


I have been really wanting to add a color changing polish to my collection since I DON’T KNOW WHEN and the ones by Claire’s just didn’t intrigue me enough because it was a light pink changing to a pink just one shade higher (and saying it’s a mood polish, which is silly! We know it’s the heat/cold that changes these colors!), so I never sprung for those, but when I saw these and how OBVIOUS the change was, I knew I had to have them all (well, almost all!). So the last restock that Pretty & Polished had, I went ahead and added three minis to my cart. I really fought with myself because I thought, “Hey, since I wanted these, shouldn’t I be getting full-size?” Well, guess what? Am kicking myself for it, but maybe next restock?

Okay, let’s get down to business! First up is Candy Corn, my personal favorite. It was released as part of Pretty & Polished’s Halloween Collection, and originally also sold as part of the set. She finally released it on its own, and all hell broke loose! Everyone was springing for it! It’s a highlighter yellow “jelly” that becomes orange (at the touch of cold). Under water (depending on temperature), it can become completely orange. I noticed this one stayed orange the longest. I like this one a lot. Even if you have a highlighter yellow color, grab it. SO unique.

Next up, Day Trippin’. This was the FIRST of her color changing polishes and SUCH a bestseller. I didn’t really want this one, but when I was getting Candy Corn, I tossed it into my cart. I like this one more than I thought I would. It’s a magenta “jelly” that turns into a royal purple shade. Once again, the cold makes it purple. Pretty pretty!

Spring Fling was also one that I really liked. And, am so glad I got. It’s a neon/lime green “jelly” (I call these “jellies” by the way because they are extremely sheer, even at 3 coats, and I think you could very well use a white/base color underneath and it wouldn’t change the fact that it changes colors) that becomes a darker neon green/forest green. Oh, and can’t forget the fact that this has flakies in it. They are very small flakies, but oh.so.pretty! I love this one.

Okay, so here’s another thing I wanted to address. I did use a topcoat in these pictures above. I used HK Girl resold by Jill from Glisten & Glow. I love this top coat is ALL I have to say. It’s one of my top used topcoat because it gives a glass-like shine and there’s no apparent shrinkage. I also discovered that if you use it as a base coat for glitter polishes, it pops right off, which is probably better than using glue of any kind on your nails! Good thinking! :) Okay, so, now here’s my debut video (and following it is a CLEARER video, but the sink method was MUCH better in the first video, so if you have the time, I would watch both just to give you an idea of how these babies work!)

Love these pretties. You can, as always, purchase Pretty & Polished from Pretty & Polished’s Etsy Shop or on Llarowe’s website.

Author: Taneja's Bride

I'm a 30-something year old wife and mother. Most days, I am obsessing over makeup. Seriously, go ahead and ask the hubs. I love, love, love colors and it is something I really enjoy. I am an author (currently writing/on hiatus with my 2nd book) and here's how my love affair with makeup really started: When I was a couple months old, my Mom used to put black kohl on my eyes to ward off evil. I guess you can say I was born with the love for makeup? I really didn't trouble my Mom when it came to wearing makeup to school, and she definitely was really excited when I asked! So, I still remember, I started off with some mascara and eyeliner. I told her and I still remember my words, "I don't think I'll ever wear lipstick - it smells funny!" "Um, boy were you wrong," says my massive lipstick collection. I absolutely love colors, and I firmly believe that colors are for EVERYONE, no matter what age! So, here I am - I can't wait to share ALL my makeup and nail polish and other miscellaneous things with YOU! I've also written a novel - a philosophy, a romance, entertainment - and I'd love to share with you all about it. Check out my page here for further details. Or, you can directly go the Amazon site and support me! :) Paint the town red! Be BOLD! Make a statement! Be YOU! Don't be afraid of colors!
