Nail trends are here, and they are most definitely here to stay! Whether you like chrome, crackle, or even tie-dye, there’s a little something for everyone. And there’s always something new. The newest addition is one of pure imagination and creativity; Ruby Wing’s color changing nail polishes.
Using “solar active technology” to go from one color to another, Ruby Wing offers an array of dual-toned colors that offer one look indoors, and a completely different one outdoors.
The first collection from New York-based brand SolarClub, the collection follows in the steps of another makeup trend, being completely vegan. It is also free of harsh chemicals, non-toxic, and environmentally friendly. Unique and socially-conscious? Sign us up!
But does it live up to the hype? Yes, yes it does!
Moonstone, one of the many different color options in the line, is a robin egg blue, with the color changing aspect of a deep lavender. The formula is thin and a bit watery. This makes it essential to apply two coats to receive a good solid opaque color. Although top coat was not applied, that is one of personal choice. The brand does not specify if using a top coat will affect the color changing technology.
Stick your nails in direct sunlight for about 60 seconds and you can witness the color changing with your own eyes. Stick your hands back into the cool shade and, like magic, watch the color go back.
Besides being fun to wear, the polish can serve some practical purposes. Going to an outdoor picnic or wedding? If you’re wearing a purple dress you won’t have to change your nail polish- it’ll change for you! And if you go indoors? The blue will still compliment your dress nicely.
Available on the Ruby Wing website for $12 in 18 complimentary shades, these polishes are fun, versatile, and a CHIC addition to your polish collection!
