Burning Love

Thermal Love Nail Art

Valentine's Day is next weekend! Heart manis never get old, and are perfect for all of February.

I received this thermal polish from Born Pretty Store in exchange for an honest review.  It was actually a fun surprise because I thought it was just a regular polish when I got it in the mail. The polish changes from orange when warm, to red when cold.  I thought it was just a really thin polish when I applied the first coat since the polish in the bottle is red, but it was so transparent on my nail.  Little did I know it was because it was a thermal polish, and the reason the red looked so light was because it was actually orange.  After a few coats I figured it out - blowing on the wet polish to dry it, made it turn red.  Ta-da!  Mystery solved. 

Overall the polish is great!  I love the color, and the orange to red is a nice combo - noticeable, but still subtle.  There is just enough glitter to the polish to be sparkly but not a full on glitter polish.  The polish is also a peel off varnish.  It stays on really well though, and is a nice feature to have if you don't have nail polish remover handy.

Thermal polish adds a nice dynamic to a simple stamped nail.  If you have longer nails, it will also look like a gradient nail.  To create this look:
  1. Apply the thermal base color.  It will take a few coats to get the polish dark enough.

  2. Use black stamping polish to stamp a different heart on each nail from BM-S225.

I tried to get a few different shots to show the color changing effect.
