In case you don't know, thermal polishes contain magic!! well, maybe not quite, they contain some sort of pigment which changes colour with temperature and I got my first ever thermal this week from Nails Inspire.
Nails Inspire is a UK Indie run by lovely Kim, and Fairy Lights is one of her Christmas collection. They are available from her Etsy shop here, although currently out of stock. I believe a restock is due after 21st November so worth following her facebook page here if you want to catch one of these lovelies for yourself!
Fairy Lights is a mix of bright blue squares, and then hexes of varying sizes, in blue, green, purple, pink and silver, and some tiny green squares, in a base which changes from white when hot to deep magenta pink when cold. Most of the time for me they were at one extreme or the other, watching my son play football Saturday morning, very dark pink! back home later on as I thawed out next to the radiator, pure white!! They change very quickly as the temperature changes and I even noticed the tips going pink as I went outside to take a photo earlier and caught a chilly breeze! Great fun to watch under the tap, but so tricky to capture! The tips also changed when I had cold hands but emptied the dishwasher, or warm hands but went digging in the freezer for something.
You really just have to get one of these polishes and try for yourself, but this one is so pretty, the glitter is lovely and I adore the deep pink. I have had this on for 3 days now and am still watching excitedly to see it change colour.
