Day 27 is all about Jewelry! There are a lot of fun and creative options for this theme! It’s hard to narrow it down. But after sifting through my jewelry-making goodies I found these gorgeous marbled beads. I haven’t made them into a necklace yet… so why not at least ‘wear’ them on my fingernails?!
I wish my teal base color was a little brighter.. but oh well, I work with what I’ve got! Here’s what I’m wearing:
Teal ♥ NYC Tudor City Teal
Beige ♥ Zoya Pandora
Orange ♥ wet n wild Club Havana
Purple ♥ wet n wild On a Trip
I can’t wait to see the other jewelry-inspired designs for today! Lotsa bling, I’m sure!
27. Jewellery :
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!
