New Find: Colour Changing Nail Polish


Fridays are reserved as my TLC day, a day when if I’m not too busy, I do what makes me happy, massages, manicures sometimes an impulse purchase. Last friday was dedicated to a manicure. I get my nails done at Nail Studio, in Bishop Aboyade Cole off Adetokunbo Ademola in Victoria Island. My manicurists somehow got the vibe that I like to try new things ’cause some how she always wants to test a new product on me….and this product I actually did like (the last product test was the  shellac manicure) ……its a nail polish that changes colour when you apply a top coat, its like a sane kind of nail art. Its called TRANZITIONS  from top nail polish brand China Glaze.


China Glaze’s Tranzitions Color Changing Collectiontakes the guess work out of nail art. Instead of dealing with tons of different polishes, the new shades change color when a top coat is applied. You can use a regular sized brush, nail art brush or even a tooth pick to create simple designs. I used the top coat’s brush and was able to create pretty accurate French tips. The key is to let the base coat (or colored polish) dry completely before painting the top coat design.My favorite part about the collection is that you don’t have to find compatible colors. The top coat slightly changes the shade, creating sleek, subtle nail art.

How It Works:
Step 1: Apply a base coat as normal
Step 2: Apply two coats of China Glaze Tranzitions shade of your choice and  allow to completely dry.
Step 3: Lastly, apply one coat of China Glaze clear top coat (any top coat would work but since we talking about China Glaze that would be preferable) in a pattern or just on the tips to create the french manicure effect. Fast Forward and watch the color change right before your eyes.

About the product

China Glaze introduces a brand new collection of Nail Polish which became available to stores January 2013. It contains an innovative formula that intensifies in colour once a top coat is applied. Just when I thought Shellac nail polish and Gel was the best thing to happen in the world of nails, the brains behind China Glaze  pushed the boundaries and created this new innovative textures and shades, nail lacquers that scream attention. Polishing your nails to perfection and switching them up to another hue has never been easier. Apart from the fabulous light/dark colour effects, China Glaze Tranzitions offers a long lasting, chip resistant formula that aims to protect the nails from damage.
