LeChat Rosemantic – The First Scented Mood Polish (Limited Edition)
Rosemantic is a bright bubble gum pink when warm, and classic rose red when cold. The collage below shows the colors when warm, cold and during transition. The color is pretty opaque in two coats, but I applied three coats for these swatches.
It’s possible that this color might be a fader. The warm color cures to a completely different color when cured in a UV lamp vs an LED lamp. When cured in a UV lamp the warm color is more of a peachy shade. The image below shows comparisons on swatch sticks of Rosemantic cured in UV vs LED. You can see that the cold color is still the same, but the warm colors are vastly different. I tried to conduct a fade test on the polish that was cured in LED, but it’s been very cold and dark here with little sunlight. My test was inconclusive.
I personally like the colors both ways, but be aware of this before deciding what type of lamp to use.
Here is a closer look at my transition shot. It’s a really pretty color combination and is perfect for the upcoming romantic season!
I decided to add a stamped design over Rosemantic to get in the mood for Valentine’s Day. I really wanted to use a rose image to stick with the theme, but my rose image wouldn’t pick up for the life of me. I ended up choosing this whimsical heart and swirls design from the Bundle Monster plate BM-612. I used a light pink stamping polish from Mundo de Unas.
