Pink Wednesday (Sorta)
Today I have another new to me brand of polish. Blaze by SolarActive Popped up on Twitter and sparked my interest. It's a polish that changes color when exposed to sunlight. Now this is nothing new, we've seen this before with Brands like Del Sol. Needless to say I was pretty excited to try this brand out. This color is more of a jelly and it has good coverage but I'm not a big fan of having visible nail line so i layered this on top of a white polish but just on my index finger and ring finger. I have to say the white underneath really made the colors pop more. The pink looks more neon and the purple has more depth to it. Pinks can be very difficult to take pictures of but this one was very well behaved and the colors came out very try to life.
Blaze's formula is designed to increase durability, wear and gloss. It's supposed to be a long wearing formula that helps prevent chips and discoloration. Because of this I did a mini wear test on my right hand. I took a del soul polish that was the same jelly formula and painted two nails then painted the rest with the blaze and after 5 days they both started to chip equally for me. There was not a lot of chipping and it wasn't major but it did happened, but honestly does a chip free polish really exist? I was still impressed with the wear on the polish for it being a jelly. Color Changing Polishes are lots of fun to wear and if you don't have any i recommended trying to get some. It's like getting two colors for the price of one!
Blaze polish can be bought on their website Blaze Nail Polish they ship worldwide . I am not aware if they are for sale in any stores at this time. They have two sizes .45 for $12.95 and a smaller size .25 for $7.95. They are a bit pricey in my opinion but if there's a color you like it might be worth getting. They have over 40 different colors. I own eight Del Sol polishes and I can't say that I see any dupes of them in the Blaze line. Last thing I want to mention is that the picture of the polish they sent me online looks a lot darker than what it actually is so keep that in mind. Hopefully in the future there will be more swatches out there to help with the buying process.
Outside, I flipped the bottle over right before the shot that's why it's still in it's no sunlight form : ) !
|Indoors with Flash, here you can see the difference of putting the white on first very well. The 1st and 3rd finger have the white base.|
