Indie Spotlight: ellagee Thermals

ellagee has a new Cocktail Hour Collection and many of the polishes are thermals! Yes, it IS ok to squeal with delight at the thought of thermal nail polish! A thermal polish changes color with temperature! These are the first thermals I've ever owned and they are so much fun! I found that my nails were usually in a state of gradient (warm nail bed, cold tip) but significant temperature changes, like washing my hands with warm water or the air conditioning in the car, changed the color quickly! I purchased Blue Hawaiian and Shirley Temple on my own and Laura was kind enough to include Purple Punch for me as well! Ok, ok, I know you want to get to the pictures. WARNING: There are a LOT of pictures! :) Enjoy! :)

First up is Blue Hawaiian! This polish is chock full of shimmer, which I love! Blue Hawaiian is very light blue when warm and a brighter blue when cold. This is two coats of Blue Hawaiian over one coat of white polish.

Purple Punch was so hard to capture because the color shift is very subtle. This one is also shimmery! It leans blue when warm and purple when cold. This is two coats of Purple Punch over one coat of white polish.

And finally, my favorite, Shirley Temple! I received a lot of compliments on this one! I was at a training for work and the first half of the training was in a colder building while the second half was in a warmer one. The trainer asked me if I had changed my polish between sessions when we were working together at the second building! HA! Anyways, Shirley Temple has shimmer AND glitter in it! Hexagonal and circle glitter, to be precise! CIRCLE! Ah, I just love circle glitter! :) This polish is a very light pink when warm and magenta when cold! I LOVE IT! I polished two coats over one coat of white polish.
