Today I'll be sharing with you a polish that really is not appropriate for where I live. Why you ask?
Because it changes color in the sun. What sun? I know not about this sun you speak of.
Ruby Wing - Eternal is a UV-activated color changing polish. In the above Instagram video I used my UV lamp to show the change because it is winter. Sad, sad winter. Never ending winter. Sigh...
Anyway. The polish at first is a suuuuper bright turquoise that totally freaked out my camera and made my skin look weird and the polish look streaky but it really wasn't.
And then when you're out in the sun...
Dark purple! The change is SO quick and intense. I always expect color changing polishes (be it thermal or UV) to not change too much. But this is crazy! Really strange to watch. I immediately had to show my mom. Hahaha.
When you come out of the sun (or the UV lamp) it changes back really quickly too! That made it hard for me to get photos, actually, where I couldn't take pictures while still inside the lamp, obvi! You can see the purple starting to change back in the above photo where I was trying to compare the color.
And here it's almost back to the indoors color. Isn't that a strange shade?
Best part is, I got this one on clearance. Duh.
Verdict: I am totally impressed with the effect of Ruby Wing polish. What is usually just a cheap novelty is actually a really great product! I have two more of these interesting gems in my stash (glitters!) that I am definitely going to have to try soon! Or maybe I will wait until July when I have real sun... Blerg!
