Every time I make a new thermal I say it's my new favorite. This is no exception to that!
I created this polish to be the perfect fall apple thermal. When warm, this polish is a granny smith green. When cold it's a red delicious crimson. This polish applies matte from the bottle to mimmic the finish of those satiny fresh picked fall apples. You can make it shiny like a more waxy apple with a glossy top coat! You can see it with both finishes pictured above.
This polish changes color with temperature. Colors may vary widely based on all sorts of variables including humidity, climate, hot, cold etc. You may see brown, olive, orange etc. Sometimes the color changing pigments can get "confused" in shipping when going in and out of different temperature changes. Give your polish 24 hours to acclimate itself upon arrival! Store your thermal polishes in a cool dark place that doesn't change temperature too much like inside of a drawer/box etc. Thermal pigment has a shelf life of 6 months to one year. At some point the raw minerals in the the thermal pigment will degrade and the thermal change will "break" and stay one color. Keep this in mind when choosing your bottle size. The best way to use a thermal polish is often!
You will receive this polish in an 11mL square bottle or a 15mL round bottle.

This polish is vegan. This polish applies best with 3-4 thin layers. You WILL see the nail line through the *warm* color (green). The red color is more opaque as it has to be strong enough to darken over the green upon cooling. To prevent seeing the nail line, you could put down a thin base coat of cream, white or possibly even a similar green.
My polishes are 10 free & cruelty free meaning they are formulated without: Formaldehyde, toluene, DBP, camphor, formaldehyde resin, xylene, ethyl tosylamide, parabens, phthalates, fragrances.
I do my best to accurately represent the colors of my polishes in their photos, however, there may be some differences in the items dues to screen brightness etc. Photos are never altered or filtered to change the colors unless it is needed to more accurately showcase harder to photograph colors. Every bottle is carefully hand-mixed and the best effort is given to consistency of formulas, though some color and distribution of glitters may vary slightly from bottle to bottle. Shake well to help with any settling that may occur during shipping.
For an easy way to remove glitter heavy polishes try googling the "foil method".

I accept major credit cards and paypal! Payment is due at time of checkout. If you pay with an e-check via paypal, funds must clear before Etsy will allow me to print your shipping label. Sometimes this takes a couple of days, but it can take up to a week.
Current turn around time is listed generally at the top of my page and in the shipping information on the listings. Turn around time depends on current order volume and how busy my day job is. All items are hand made by me.
I drop my packages directly at the main post office and my packages usually only take 2-4 days to arrive to you within the US. Please note that shipping to other countries can take 1 to as long as 3 weeks due to international shipping time/customs etc. These things are out of my hands, but your tracking number will keep you updated!
I HATE that I currently have to charge so much for shipping internationally. Please note that I am actually charging you several dollars LESS than what I actually pay for the labels only because I HATE having to make you pay so much and want to give you a break. USPS raised rates this year and I do realize that the shipping costs more than the bottle of polish, but please realize that I'm paying even more for that label.
