We consider ourselves mani experts, so we’re usually unfazed by new waves of mani art (I mean, is there really anything we haven’t seen at this point?).
However, this was not the case when we came across mood ring manis. The ’90s trend has been popping up more frequently on our Instagram, and we’re sure you’ll start seeing it everywhere.
Here’s everything you need to know about these new manis, and how they work:
KBShimmer is a brand known all over Insta for their unique colors and creative twists on regular manis. This month, the company released a collection called “Suns Out.” It includes nine thermal polishes that feature what the brand calls “shift aurora shimmer.” These are super glittery polishes that drastically change colors as temperature changes.
Adding the perfect amount of ’90s vibes, this collection has colors like “Slay La Vie,” a polish that kicks off as a strong magenta, bouncing to a rose hue and then into a hot pink nail. On top of that, the polish has blue aurora shimmer (aka glitter-like particles) that add a tint of blue.
The “Just Glow With It” version starts as a bold red and shifts into a coral orange color as you warm your hands. The last color change for this polish is hot pink. The aurora shimmer on this bad boy is a coppery orange that morphs into a bright green.
We tried the trend ourselves, and gasped every time we stepped out of a warm shower or out in the cold. We received so many compliments, we can’t wait for you to try these out, too!
Other cool polishes in this collection include the “That’s S’more Like It,” that goes from a chocolate brown to a dark red, to light orchid, or the “Reel Good Time,” that goes from a deep purple to a copper red, and ends in a green.
