Today I have a fun polish to share with you – it changes with your mood! It’s called Mood Struck Color Changing Nail Polish and it’s heat activated to change from teal to turquoise. I’m a sucker for cheesey products like this- mood changing, glow-in-the-dark, I love them all! I found this bottle on ebay and also picked up two shades that change in the sunlight!
This Mood Struck polish dried to a semi-matte finish. And it just may be one of THE fastest drying polishes in the world!!! It started drying instantly- so you better brush it on quickly, and with as few strokes as possible! Otherwise, it gets goopy and streaky. I used three coats here since I needed to even out the surface- and I didn’t bother with a topcoat because I really like the satin finish.
I wanted to photograph this polish in natural light so you could see what it really looks like in it’s natural state. But it’s so darn cold here- my nail color just won’t budge when I’m outside! It’s pretty chilly in my house too, so I didn’t get much variation in color indoors either. But I did notice that the tips of my nails were a bit cooler and were a dark teal color. Whereas the base of my nail is warmer from my body temperature so the polish there was more of lighter turquoise. It almost has a slight gradient effect !
Both pictures in this post show my nails after I dipped the tips in a small bowl of hot water. I love the cool effect! I can’t wait to try the polish during warmer months so I can see more of this!

This is so fun! Reminds me of a mood stone pendant I used to have. It’s also a great way to cheat an ombre/gradient manicure 😛
Yeah- I love mood jewelry! Mood rings and stuff- they’re so much fun 🙂
That’s really cool! Looks amazing 😀
That is so freakin’ cool! 😀
Oh how cool is that!
Ah, so that’s what it’s supposed to look like!? I picked up a few of these (cheap!) ages ago but they never colour changed at all! I Love the colour – wish mine worked now lol
I can’t believe yours didn’t work. That’s so lame!!!
I know 😦 but I only paid 99p so I’ve not lost too much. They are still nice polishes though and I like the matte effect too. I have a feeling mine were either cooked or frozen at some point and the lost their magical properties lol!
This looks fun 🙂
I love the color!!! I used to have some mood polish years ago in the 80’s!!! I might have to try it again!!
Ahhh- the 80’s were the best 🙂
Holy Cow that’s awesome!
What a fantastic product!
Looks amazing – will have to give it a go!
This is awesome! 🙂 Such a good idea for polish!
