DIY Hard Nails Color Changing Gel Polish & a Contest!

I have a brand new soak-off gel polish brand to share with you today called DIY Hard Nails.  Their polish line includes glitters, shimmers and color changing gels.  Today I have a couple of the color changing polishes to share with you, and I will soon have photos of a couple of the glitters and one of the shimmer colors.

Before I get into the details, I want to mention that DIY Hard Nails is sponsoring a contest with three prizes.  Details of the contest will be posted at the bottom of this post, so don’t miss that!

I did a wear test on these because I was curious.  DIY Hard Nails says on their listing that their polishes can be mixed with other brands, but I used their base and top coat for the wear test to see how they held up.  The base and the top coats were thinner than most brands that I’ve tried, but they were very easy to apply and cured well.  I really like that my nails didn’t feel bulky, yet they were still very strong.  I did this test with one of the color changing polishes and the polish was nice and thick and applied really well.  There was no shrink-back or pooling and only two coats of color were required.  I wore the polish for 10 days, which is about the longest that I ever wear one color, and I’m happy to report that I didn’t have a single chip or any lifting!  While the polish lasted wonderfully, the soak-off did take longer than normal.

Now, onto the colors!  This first one is called Pink Frost and it changes colors from white to pink depending on the temperature.  I have never seen a mood polish that has glitter in it… I really love the look!  This color was slightly tricky to apply just because the color turned light as soon as it hit my nails so it was hard to see where the first coat was applied, but I just used caution and avoided my skin and it worked out fine.  I used two coats of color for this swatch.  You could make the colors more bold with another coat, but I didn’t feel it was necessary.

And this is Pink Galaxy, which shifts from pink to blue-ish purple depending on the temperature and is also loaded with glitter!  I love the purple color, and the shift is so pretty.  This polish was almost completely opaque in just one coat, but I applied two coats for good measure.

      Awesome! Please keep in mind that these are gel polishes and require an LED or UV lamp to cure (dry). :) And be sure to leave feedback on the Amazon page to be entered into the contest!

    I look forward to hearing when these are available in Canada! I love it when I don’t need to do three coats of SOG.
