This is going to be a picture-heavy post! I wanted to capture all of thermal shift of this color. So I spent twenty minutes playing with an ice pack and snapping 80 or so pictures.
This is Liquid Sly Lacquer’s “24 Karat Rose,” a thermal shade that is gold when warm and pink when cool, and packed with gold shimmer. I have this and its cousin “Get Lucky,” which has red for cold instead of the pink, and I love them both.
This is four thin coats, which has everything to do with my inability to accept VNL. But ehhhh, you don’t see it, do you? With the shimmer, removal was maybe one cotton round’s worth of extra effort.
The thermal-ness of this polish is really great. The day I was taking pictures, it was around 50-55 degrees, and it was really easy to elicit the thermal shift. As you can see (especially in the first and last shot), the difference between the two states is pretty clear. Oh! And I should mention that I have had this polish for more than a year, and the thermal effect is still going strong.
You can pick up this polish (and so many other great thermals on Liquid Sky Lacquer’s website, as well as a number of stockists. They also have minis available if you’re on the fence. I have purchased both minis and regular size so, and have never regretted getting the bigger bottles.
And with all that, I leave you with a compilation shot, demonstrating the full shift.
