It’s officially fall!! I’ve been trying to hold off from wearing/posting fall polishes, but I can’t wait any longer! I bought my very first Del Sol polish last winter and it just so happens to be Del Sol Trick-or-Treat. I know I could have worn it any time of year really, but I wanted to wait until autumn.
Del Sol are specialty polishes that are color changing between indoor and outdoor light. In indoor light Trick-or-Treat is a fine coppery orange glitter mixed with holographic glitter. The formula isn’t very dense so it may take 4 or more coats for complete coverage if you opt to wear it on its own. Instead I used OPI Call Me Gwen-ever as my nail undies and layered two coats of Trick-or-Treat on top. It dried a little on the gritty side so it took 2 thick coats of Seche fast dry top coat to get a smooth finish.
And this is what happens when Trick-or Treat meets the sun!
It turned into a rusty brownish red color…not exactly what the cap lead me to believe, which was black. Maybe if I just layered it on its own it would have gotten even darker, but there’s no way it would have turned black from a brownish red. Either way, I like the burgundy color, it’s drastic enough to notice a change which was the whole point.
Do you own any Del Sol polishes? I remember only ever seeing them in little boutique/tourist shops in vacation spots or in airports. They always seemed expensive to me so I passed until I found this on Ebay and had to have it cause the bottle looked so cute and it’s Halloween theme. I think I’ve had my fill of color changing polishes though and am ready to go back to my regular glitters
