Happy weekends lovelies!
Today, I have another new-to-the-blog brand to share with all of you - Ruby Wing! As you may already know, Ruby Wing is a line of polishes that changes colour in the sun (or more specifically under UV light) from the people behind the brand, Color Club!
I was offered the chance to try out a mini set of 4 from their Fall 2013 collection - Cupcakes and Champagne. I had thought these colours were too sweet for my liking but boy did they blow my socks off! Take a look!
Cinnamon Bun. 2 thin coats.
A light rusty brown to green duochrome foil that darkens to a beautiful reddish brown when exposed to UV rays. The reddish brown is much darker than the swatch above but I had to ditch my swatches of that because they turned out to be too blurry >< The second picture above shows the intermediary colour as the polish fades back to the lighter shade.
Sweet Cream. 2 thin coats over OPI Barre My Soul.
A clear base with strong pink to green duochrome shimmer that darkens dramatically into a deep purple (even darker than the swatch above). I really love the shimmer and how versatile this is. Quite possibly my favourite from this quartet.
Chocolate Mousse. 3 thin coats over OPI Barre My Soul.
Another clear based polish filled with iridescent flakies that shifts to a deep maroon-brown (darker than swatch above). Another dramatic shift. Although I love how delicate the flakies look in a clear base, I super love them when they pop against the dark colour when in the sun. Application is slightly tricky with this one because of the size of the flakies.
Doux. 3 thin coats over OPI Barre My Soul.
A clear base filled with shimmer-flakies that darkens to a deep purple (darker than swatch above). You know I can't resist a purple.
The colour change in these polishes really got me and I must say I absolutely love them! Colour changing in the sun? Duochrome too!? *grabby hands* These are simply perfect for the sunny weather in Singapore - demure work appropriate nails in a minute and va-va-vamp the next!
Not only that, each of these polishes are SCENTED! I am not usually a fan of scented polishes but these smell like their namesake - soooooo yummy <33 The scents seem to last quite long and I can still smell whiffs of the scents from my swatch sticks a week later!
Ruby Wing is available on their website. For Singaporeans, Ruby Wing (the entire range!) is also available at Vedure at Robinsons Orchard (Heeren), Level 1.
