What are you in the mood for?

On my recent trip to the big NYC (during Irene, go me), I picked up a number of Forever 21 polishes.  (I'm gonna take haul pics tomorrow...geez, get off my back, conscience!)  One of them was the first color-changing polish I've owned since my lacquer obsession began.  Check out this MoodStruck Teal to Turquoise polish:

Shade.  Stop hiding, Pinky!  
In the first pic, the index finger is cold, and the accent/ring finger has one coat of Finger Paints Art You Wondering on it.  Cold turns the blue-based aqua into a green-based teal.  The Finger Paints polish was sitting in my untried pile, and it turned out to be a great complement to the color change polish! This is really one of my favorite manis I've done since before my fall travels began.  Yes, my nails are still in pretty rotten shape (especially after a recent shaving incident), but my cuticles are quickly improving.

I really loved how this MoodStruck polish dried supah-fast and with a kind of rubbery finish.  I opted to leave it without a topcoat for this very reason.  I've seen a few MoodStruck reviews that rated it pretty poorly, but I'm gonna give this a big ol' thumbs up.  I'm going on a cruise in late October, and I can't wait to pick up some Del Sol color-changing polishes during that trip.


  1. Very pretty! But will this only be good tom wear in the winter? I mean if it's 100 degrees out and you need cold for it change?!? So do you walk around with an ice cube to show e change? Hahahaha!

  2. Ha! As a matter of fact, I DID keep sticking my finger in the ice water I was drinking and going, "Look! Magic!"

    But seriously, I've seen some girls with long nails rock it, and the tip stays cooler than the nailbed, so it looks like a French tip. Very cool look. (See what I did there?)
