Elite99 Thermal gel #5719

COATS:
3
SOURCE:
Aliexpress
COMMENTS:
This one is a treat because there is a third color it turns! Yellow-green is the warm color, the red-ish is cool, and the dark purple is cold. Hard to get all three at the same time but so much fun to look at during the day - especially after hand-washing.

COMMENTS:
This is an amazing color, however it looked too "electric" on me as a solid color so I stamped with its complementary color to "tone it down" a bit.

After wearing the entertaining color change gel for a day I decided I wanted a change, so layered on another polish. I love how the darker (cold) color shows through to make the updated manicure more interesting.

This was quite a delightful gel polish to wear. I do wish it was opaue at 2 coats, but the color change made it worth the extra coat.

The first time I saw this color in a photo I knew I had to have it. However, after I finally did get it (over 5 years ago), I never wore it. Silly of me because in spite of needing three coats, it looks fantastic on me. =)

I couldn't decide whether to keep this one or not - at some angles it looks like a shimmery veil for my nails, and at other it makes my nails look dirty...

COMMENTS:
This is the kind of glitter polish that could pass for a "textured polish" nowadays. 2 coats of topcoat makes it smooth and glassy.
