I’m super stoked for this post, as it’s a box full of magic! The fall thermal box is themed Cool as Shift and features four makers that collab’ed together to bring you four shifty polishes with varying finishes. There’s a little bit of everything in here!
First up is Colors by Llarowe: Swing Shift. This beauty is a lovely deep purple when cold and a nice bright blue when warm. There’s a hoard of prismatic holo flakes, and chameleon color shifting flakes. This is a jelly formula so it’s a bit sheer, but worth it to bring you depth with all those flakies. My swatches show three coats plus glossy topcoat. If you have a bright free edge, you may still be able to see your smile line like me on the warm state.
If you’re in an in between warm state on your hands, you’ll see it turn into a pretty blurple state while it shifts too.
Baroness X’s contribution is called Shiftstorm. A nice blurple in cold and very light pink, somewhat lavender leaning when warm. There’s a sprinkle of lavender glitter and blue to purple shifting flakes too. All with a generous dose of green to purple shifting shimmer. Very iridescent and delicate. The shimmer is really cool because in indoor lighting it gives a pink duochrome effect to your nails. Swatches show two coats with glossy topcoat. Formula applies like a cream and dries flat. In tilt under direct lighting you’ll see the shimmer light up with a green hue.
Darling Diva’s creation is Bat Shift Crazy. A bright blue/green when cold and a nice beige (to me) when warm. There’s a load of multichrome flakes, scattered holo, color shifting shimmer and a light linear holo effect. My swatches show three thin coats plus topcoat. I had no issues with the flakies, they laid down nicely for me and everything was perfectly evened out after topcoating.
Top shelf’s contribution is You’re So Full of Shift! A linear holo that is a warm burgundy when cold and a nice mauve when warm, all with pink to orange shifting flecks. The shifty flecks were being shy in my swatches but in person you can see those lovelies in a linear look. You can see them peeking out on my tips on the third and fourth photo. Shown here is two coats plus glossy topcoat. Formula was a nice, saturated creamy feel when applying.
Love them! The Cool as Shift box will go on pre-order at Top Shelf Lacquer’s website ->HERE<- on September 14th at 8pm EST and run to September 21 at 11:59 pm EST.
Box price will be $39.95 plus shipping and will ship October 9th, or sooner.
Thanks so much for reading!
