The Nail Polish That Changes with Your Temperature

By on

If you’ve ever hit up the nail salon only to be completely torn between dark and light nail polishes, you’re in luck! A new salon-only, special effects topcoat lets you have the best of both worlds.

Shade Shifter Gel FX Coat from ORLY changes color based on your body’s chemistry and temperature. At a salon that uses ORLY’s Gel FX gel manicure, the technician would paint your nails with ORLY gel polish, and after that dries, they’d apply Shade Shifter Gel FX Coat as a topcoat.

It goes over your nail color as a gorgeous, inky shade (not the usual clear). But as your body heats up, it turns clear, revealing the nail polish underneath. When your temp drops, it morphs back into the edgy, noir hue. And voila: Your nails go from one color to another and back again!

As it shifts from clear to dark, each wearer will see different effects—including tie-dye, ombré, and spots—based on their unique body chemistry. Pretty cool stuff.
