Del sol colour changing polish !!!

Hello girls, i just wanted to share a quick review of a new nail polish which i was sent to review from Del Sol.

Now colour changing polishes have been around for quite a while in one form or another but i have to say that the ones i have tried before were not particularly great. A bit gimmicky and a bit of fun probably aimed at young girls so i was not expecting too much from this.

First of all the colour is not something i would usually go for as I'm not the biggest fan of pale blue nails.

However i was pleasantly surprised with the results. Admittedly i needed 3 coats for the coverage but the finish was really pretty. Nice and shiny metallic looking even without a top coat. I was sent the colour Electrick which is a pale metallic blue almost silver.

The first photo is inside the house and the second photo is after going outside for about 30 seconds. The colour changes from a blue to green. The photos look quite subtle but its actually quite a contrast in real life.
I actually really like this product and would love to try out some of the other shades.
My friend even asked what polish i was wearing as she really liked it so another thumbs up.

They cost £7.95 and are available from R8 Beauty in lots of other shades too.
I would be interested to see what some of the more glittery shades look like and think they might be good if you like to mix things up a bit with a little nail art or layering, marbling etc.

Do you have any colour changing polishes and if so what are your thoughts?


  1. Love this nail polish :)
    Nicoletta you've got pretty hands and nails :)

  2. hi could i just ask how u get all these products sent to you? do you contact them or them you?

  3. Hi Sabina i actually got this product from a sweepstake on facebook from R8 beauty. I often win things to review it's woth checking out as they do lots of competitions and things.
    I am also a member of beauty judge and sometimes get sent things to review from them as i review a lot of products on the site.
    I have to say i have been very lucky lately and had some lovely things to review.
    HTH xx

  4. I love your nail polish color nicoletta..Absolutely gorgeous..

  5. I love the colour, its perfect.


  6. I missed that competition, those varnishes look somewhat original... I haven't tried them but wasn't really interested in the Claire's mood varnishes (apparently they change colour) but I think I might give those a go one day ;) Let me know if you try any other colours :)

  7. Love the green colour, not so sold on the orignal pale blue though!!


Thankyou for all your comments, i appreciate each and everyone xx
