Ruby Wing Electric Firefly and Doux - Review & Swatches
It's finally a weekend again and I've set myself to catch up on some swatching, editing more video tutorials I made (yay to fulfilling my blog resolutions!) and writing some blog posts for the next few days. Phew, that's a lot of work just for two days!
Today I want to show you two Ruby Wings polishes that are UV sensitive and change colour once you go outside. The first one is Electric Firefly, a crazy bright yellow neon colour that changes into bright orange. The polish has a very subtle shimmer particles so it's not a flat out creme. I've applied two coat which went on nicely and I've also added topcoat. When I was testing the colour change I stepped into direct sunlight and the colour changed quite fast. It took a longer for the colour to go back to the neon yellow once I went back inside though. Overall it's a great polish for summer so I'll be sure to experiment a bit more with it.
The second polish I got here is called Doux and it is sheer pink duochrome glass flecks shifting to purple, blue and green shades. I've applied one coat over A England Camelot (black creme) because the polish is very sheer and I would need at least three thick coats for some reasonable coverage. I suspect the polish meant for layering anyway...
It applied well but it was a bit gritty because of the glass flecks. i needed thicker topcoat to smooth the nails out. As to the colour change - it is not as dramatic as with Electric Firefly. Doux changed from pinkish to blue-based purple but it wasn't very visible on the nails so look at the change in the bottle.
