Can you feel the heat? After trying out thermal polish from Born Pretty Store, I wanted to put some nail art over it that would match the pretty gradient that resulted from the polish.
The real star of the show was Born Pretty Color-change Polish in 100. It turns yellow with heat, so my natural body temperature kept my nail beds a lemony hue while the tips turned a creamsicle orange tone due to the colder air temperature.
I definitely wanted palm trees on my nails, but I was feeling a bit lazy about painting them, so I found an image of a single palm tree with an oasis on Cheeky Jumbo Plate 2.
The only issue was that I did not want to have the oasis in the image, so after I transferred the image to my stamper, I used Scotch tape to remove the extraneous parts of the design and left only the leaves of the palm tree behind. The stamping was done with b.m.c. nail lacquer in noir black. With only the leaves of the palm trees stamped on my fingers, I used Kiss Nail Art Paint in Black (used for the striping brush) to finish painting in the tree trunks.
Leave it to me to forget to take pictures of those steps in my effort to try to get some sleep at night. It was really simple to do, so I’m sure you can imagine what they looked like!
Of course, with a thermal polish, the colors change under water quite easily.

The looks are pretty endless with such a shifty polish, and it’s such cheap entertainment to watch it turn different colors. If only all manicures were so interactive!
Happy polishing! 🙂
