Del Sol - Trick or Treat

Good morning friends!! I hope you guys have been enjoying ogling the prizes in my giveaway. Day one of the giveaway was a huge success and I'm having so much fun reading all the things that you guys love about autumn and Halloween! If you haven't entered yet, don't forget to click the link in my sidebar and it will take you to my Halloween Giveaway Spooktacular!

Anyways, back to our regularly scheduled Halloween polishes =) Today I have for you such a fun polish, Del Sol Trick or Treat! It is a UV reactive polish which means it changes colors in the sun. Trick or Treat is an orange jelly polish packed with orange and green glitter. When it is exposed to sunlight, the orange jelly turns into a deep burgundy/brownish color! So cool right? I believe that this was released by Del Sol in 2010 as an LE Halloween polish. I still see this popping up on eBay and other online stores so it's not too hard to find.

Most other pictures I see of this polish, the darkened portion looks like a dark purple but since I did 4 coats of it to cover my nail lines, it's much more saturated and it looks brown in my pics. I think next time I will just suffer through the VNL and only do 2 coats so I can get more of the purple color from this. Either way, still cool and definitely an essential in my Halloween polish collection.

Here's 4 coats of Del Sol Trick or Treat, no topcoat. First two pictures are indoors, last two pictures are in full sunlight. Enjoy!





What do you guys think? Is it cool or too gimmicky? Do you have any UV-reactive polishes?

Thanks for stopping by today guys! Don't forget to enter my Halloween Giveaway Spooktacular! See you all tomorrow with more Halloween polish =)

  5. I remember when uv reactive polishes first appeared in...either the end of the 90s or early 00s. I loved them then & I love them still. But don't own any at the moment. Looks like I have a new lemming! Thanks for the post!

  18. Maybe use orange undies so get rid of VNL? And then perhaps it would be purple in the sunlight :) Such a cute polish!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hmm perhaps I will try that next time. I was concerned the orange would interfere with the purple color changing though. Maybe I'll layer it over a skin tone next time =)

      Delete
  19. Wow, yours is a really bright orange! The bottle I have just has a clear base, so the overall look is much more subdued. I wonder if they changed the formula?

    1. I think it's so bright because I did so many coats lol. It's pretty sheer at just one or 2 coats.
