Del Sol Polish: Sun Kissed

Ready to start your week? How about starting it off with a fun nail polish? Del Sol polish is fun. It’s one color indoors and when you step out into the sun, it changes instantly to a different color…

There is a Del Sol shop at the Orlando Airport. I happen to be fortunate to have some clients there. After my visits, I swing by the Del Sol shop to see what new polishes they have.


‘Sun Kissed’ isn’t exactly a new shade. However, I picked it because orange and reddish-orange shades are hot this summer. First, this is what ‘Sun Kissed’ looks like in the shade…

It’s a very powdery-soft mellow orange. And, once I step out into the Florida sunshine, things start to shift…

Full out in the sun, and things begin to deepen and brighten…

 A bit more…

 And here you have ‘Sun Kissed’ with its total sun look…

You cannot believe how smooth this polish applies. I have 3 coats on and no top coat. However, I’m told that a clear top coat doesn’t have any effect on the color change. Even through the bottle, you can see the metamorphosis…

If this was a drink, I’d add some rum to it, put in a slice of pineapple and enjoy a little bit of time at the pool. And I think I’d spend half of my time reading my Kindle Fire and the other half would be spent gazing at my ‘Sun Kissed’ nails…

Have you tried Del Sol polishes? What color do you have?

Del Sol’s Christmas Polish: Tinsel Toes

This just in…Holiday Del Sol polish!!!

 
 

‘Tinsel Toes!’ I love it! I visited clients that have businesses out at the airport and this is where there is a Del Sol store. Since I found a Halloween polish and I blogged about it here, I stopped in to see if they had any Christmas polishes.

OK, the novelty is neat but I like the colors a lot. The fun of this brand is to show people that haven’t seen it. Kind of like magic!

‘Tinsel Toes’ is a softened gold that is slightly sparkly and understated. It is not an ‘in your face’ flashy gold. These photos were taken in the shade.

Now watch it change…

A little more red….

Getting darker and redder…

And here it is a magical golden red. However, it comes off a bit like a salmon color on the nails. It’s not so noticeable in real life. However, you can see how it makes my fingers look like the infamous ‘lobster fingers’ where the contrast between nail color and flesh tone collide.

I was surprised, and I don’t know why, that this wasn’t more opaque. I have on 2 coats and I just finished there because I knew it would take many more to get it opaque.

So, Del Sol’s ‘Tinsel Toes’ is a more subtle sparkle, and after flashy glitter manis and polishes, it is nice to wear something more demure.

Share with me your thoughts on ‘Tinsel Toes.’

Trick Or Treat, Smell My Feet, I Found A Polish That Can’t Be Beat

If you are scurrying around, trying to get a lot done and the Internet gets wonky, doesn’t that just piss ya off?! OK, I guess I need to get into some sort of anger management computer class or, net rage control intervention.

But, this pumpkin soothes my nerves…

I was in St. Petersburg, Florida last weekend for my sister’s wedding. I checked G’s (Nouveau Cheap) virtual tracking map for Wet ‘n Wild’s On the Prowl collection. I actually saw 2 spottings marked for the Gulf Coast!

My hubs has got it through his head that yes, we will stop by several Walgreens, when we are out. And I was damn sure we would on our way to the Gulf.

I’ve given up on the On the Prowl collection. But I did find these…

I have seen and know about Del Sol polishes, however, this is the first one I have ever purchased. I think I’ve avoided buying any Del Sol because I’m not what you call an ‘outside’ girl.

I didn’t think ‘Trick or Treat’ was going to fair well all by itself (notice middle finger). And I got out my trusty black creme and went to town. I used Wet ‘n Wild’s ‘Black Out.’ I have 2 coats of ‘Black Out’ and used 2 coats of ‘Trick Or Treat.’ I didn’t do a top coat as I figured it would not work with sunlight-changing polishes.

I wasn’t paying any attention and thought this was going to be a just OK polish. No! This is way better than a just OK!

 There is iridescent glitter in this! And the orange glitter plays off the iridescent and creates fireworks. Good grief, I can’t get over the look.

Remember, I just stated that I’m not the outdoorsy type, right? I guess I wasn’t outdoors enough when I was photographing these shots because ‘Trick or Treat’ was not changing. Hmmm…what that the trick? Then I got a bright idea (whoo hoo…bright idea is gonna be a pun, hold on). I thought I’d use my UV light box. Word!

And here is the bottle itself. You can actually see the line where the bottle was out of the light spectrum.

 I’m pretty gaga over this polish. It was hard for me to move on to swatch another one.

Have you seen ‘Trick or Treat’? How do you like Del Sol polish? Are you hoping to find a Winter Holiday Del Sol polish, like I am?
