Claire's Mood Calm/Wild

I can't remember when I picked up this bottle of claire's Mood "Calm/Wild" polish but I did it after seeing it on various blogs, and thought it looked just awesome.  It's a glitter color changing polish that reacts to your body heat and doesn't work too well on nubbins, hah.

I actually wore this polish for 3 days, took it off, and then put it back on again to blog about it.  I really enjoyed this polish a lot!  The first time I used a base coat of Seche Retain (I couldn't find my Natural), but the second time I used Seche Natural, 3 coats of Calm/Wild, and because this was drying matte on me, I went with a top coat of Seche Vite.  Thankfully, the Seche Vite did not alter the color changing process.  Clean up was typical glitter like - either scrub with felt or just let the remover sit on the nail for a few minutes (yes, minutes) to remove the polish in one sweep.

The "cold" color is the purple - so basically if your hands were freezing, you'd only see the purple.  I ended up running my hands under cold water to get a picture of that for you.

However, normally, my hands specifically are pretty warm, and in general, the part of your nail that is attached  to your finger, is warm.  While photographing this polish in my 100 degree heat weather, you could REALLY see the "warm" color which was the pink.

However, while I was inside (hah, which is most of the day), you get a nice "french manicure" look with the cold and warm colors.

I also got 2 in some indirect sun - you can see the purple starts to fade to the pink a bit.

Overall, I was actually thrilled with this polish, which is quite different from the "pre-glued nails" review I did last time with Claire's.  The glitter was a silver microglitter that didn't distract from either the purple or pink color.  Actually, I was so pleased that I went back and bought 3 more from the same line but they are all matte/cremes.  More on those later.

I paid $5 for this bottle but they were having a big "buy 1, get 1 half off" sale.
