Creative musings in bright colors

When I received Mushroom Cloud* by Femme Fatale for review, I immediately fell in love. A dark purple polish with pink glitter and blue glass flecks? YES! And THEN I discovered that it is a thermal polish. I kept staring at the two colors trying to figure out what they reminded me of. Then it came to me: the logo of the kingdom from Tangled!


Mushroom Cloud is a truly impressive polish. Shown here is two coats over my clear base coat. The polish is slightly thick, but the type of thick that makes it easily workable. I had no trouble controlling the polish, and it dried very quickly to a satin finish. The color change occurs somewhere between 68 degrees and 90 degrees (how do I know? My apartment is at 68 and I was unable to get the lighter purple to stay at the tips of my nails!). I can’t decide if I like this polish better with or without top coat!



The “cold” color is a deep indigo with blue glass flecks and a subtle pink shimmer visible at the curve of the nail (it is a bit more purple than it appears in my photos). The color looks almost duocrhome between the blue and pink! The “warm” color is a bright purple that leans strongly pink…one might almost call it radiant orchid :-D. In the warm state, the pink glitters come through more strongly, and the blue flakes are more subtle but appear in indirect light again creating almost a duochrome on the nail!



I love this polish. The dark purple color is stunning, the bright purple is vivid, and the addition of the blue glass flecks creates something unique and wonderful. I love this so much that I wore it alone. For an entire day. No nail art. I NEVER do that! I kept washing my hands just to watch the nails change color :-D. This polish will make your more hygienic!


After staring at my nails for 24 hours, I added the sunburst pattern from Tangled using my yellow WOW polish #301. I am honestly impressed that they looked good in both the light and dark forms of Mushroom Cloud!


Apparently, I saved the best for last. If you want to get your fingernails on Mushroom Cloud, it is $12.50 over at Femme Fatale! You will not regret it. Enjoy!
