***PRESS (PR) SAMPLE NOTICE ***
What if I told you today’s post featured 8 polishes for the price of 4? That would be amazing right? Well… that’s kinda what I’m going to tell you.
You may be wonder how that is possible, well you see, today I have the pleasure of bringing you the Fall Thermal Box, Cool as Shift. THERMAL being the operative word!
This box features 4 phenomenal thermals from some of your favorite makers! If you’re not familiar with thermals, they are super cool because they allow you to have 2 polishes in 1 bottle. These polishes change color as they react to heat and cold. There’s some science behind it all but we’re here to talk polish, so let’s jump into it!
**All swatches are done using Commitment Issue Peel-off Base Coat by Vapid and Tonic Topper by Tonic (shiny) and Matte Me topcoat by Jior Couture (matte). Swatch photos are taken using artificial lights.**
Colors by Llarowe (CbL) / Swing Shift
A deep purple in cold state and bright blue in warm state with prismatic holo flakes and chameleon color shifting flakes.
Baroness X / Shiftstorm
A blurple (cool state) to very light pink / almost lavender looking because of the shift (warm state) with green to purple shifting pigment, blue to purple micro-flakies and a sprinkling of lavender holo glitter.
Darling Diva / Bat Shift Crazy
A bright blue green (cool state) to a pale color shifting shimmer with a smattering of multichrome flakes, holo flakes and a light linear holo.
Top Shelf Lacquer / You’re so full of shift!
A warm burgundy linear holo with pink to orange shifting fleck in the cool state and transitions to a mauve base color in the warm state.
Overall Thoughts: The Cool as Shift, Fall Thermal Box
Formula / Application: no issues to report. I have used these brands before and the formulas are exactly what I expected for each maker. All of the polishes build really well in 3 coats and have a fairly quick dry time. I didn’t have any dragging or pooling with the formulas and flakies/flecks lay flat.
Opacity: 3 coats
Price: $39.95 plus shipping. Expected ship date is approximately October 9th or sooner.
Availability: Sept 14th 8:00pm EST to Sept 21st 2017 at 11:59pm EST
Overall: I love that each brand had something different to offer the box. From holo, to flecks, to jelly and shimmer, the finishes are fun and the color changing give you something to look forward to.
