Today we’re going to look at a thermal crelly polish from Born Pretty from the same Glitter Thermal collection that the color Cloud of Purple Sky came from. Today’s color, Cerulean Stars, is a beautiful light blue when cold and turns into a mostly clear jelly with glitter when warm.
I love seeing all the flowering trees in the spring! NY has only started seeing cherry blossoms come out because of our crazy long winter this year, so this manicure was inspired by their beauty.
I started by painting my nails with Born Pretty’s BP-GT05 Cerulean Stars glitter thermal polish. I applied 3 coats to try to get more opacity in the color as it is a pretty pale sky blue when cold and more glittery and clear when warm, but it’s still a very sheer shade.
I love spring’s soft pastel colors and seeing trees blossoming everywhere. While everyone else is doing cute Easter manicures, I’m reveling in some sophisticated floral patterns.
I started by painting my nails with 2 coats of Born Pretty’s BP-GT02 Cloud of Purple Sky thermal polish. It looks like a breath of fresh air with its shimmery lilac and platinum tones and forms the perfect gradient for flower petals for this manicure.
April always gives me anxiety because taxes are due on April 15 in the US. When I painted this manicure, I hadn’t finished filing yet. I wished the forms would just disappear, so I created this vanishing manicure with the help of a thermal top coat.
I don’t have an exact match for the blue color of the 1040 tax form, but Julep’s Matilda was a close enough option. I painted 2 coats of this pretty sky blue creme polish on all of my nails.
Anyone who knows me knows that I adore thermal polishes. It makes me feel like I’m getting the most bang for my buck when I see my nails change colors. But even better is the wow factor involved when you take advantage of the double color effect to hide some stamping!
For this censored manicure, I used Aimeili’s thermal gel polish in TC03 Old Fashioned. This shade is a taupe gray color when warm and completely black when cold, making it the perfect vehicle for hiding black stamping. I applied 3 thin coats to ensure that the gray color had enough coverage and cured each layer for 60 seconds in a 36W UV/LED lamp.
As you all know, I love my thermal polishes, and this glittery jelly from Aimeili in color TC06 called Glitter Purple to Glitter Blue ticks all the boxes!
I’ve been working with gel polishes a lot lately, so as you know, this is not my first time trying out Aimeili’s line. I love their gels for their ease of application, beautiful colors, and long lasting formula. With a correct application of thin layers of gel over well prepped nails, you can expect your manicure to last until you get tired of the color or until your nails grow out.
TC06 looks like a candy grape color when it’s cold and turns into a medium light blue shade when it’s warm. It has small hexagonal and fine silver glitter pieces in the formula, and they distribute pretty evenly when the polish is applied.
The brush in the bottle is super easy to maneuver. Please watch my swatching video to see the application process!
With the recent deep freeze across the US, I decided to paint Olaf from the movie Frozen. What better way to stay happy in the cold?
To start, I applied and cured 2 coats of color TC06 from Aimeili (literally called Glitter Purple to Glitter Blue) along with their gel base and top coat. This gel polish is from their thermal collection, so the color is dark purple in the cold and turns into a medium light blue when it’s warm. The jelly formula also has different sized pieces of silver glitter in it, which remind me of snow.
Here’s a shot of it mid-transition!
