NOTD -- Del Sol Ruby Slipper

Hey everyone! Today I have an AWESOME polish to show you! I've been drooling over Del Sol polishes for a while, and my amazing bestie Steph stepped in to save the day again! She sent me Ruby Slipper, which was actually her first Del Sol polish back when she was like 14! I love sappy stories like that! :)

Anyways.. what makes Del Sol polishes so amazing? Only that they CHANGE COLOR IN THE SUN! Above, I have 3 coats of Ruby Slipper layered over 1 coat of NOPI Others Pale By Kimparison. As you can see from the bottle, Ruby Slipper is just a silver glitter in a clear base. And.. yea.. I needed underwear for it. I just can't rock silver glitter on my nails and I couldn't get it to build up to full coverage on its own, but I wanted a base color that would still be unobtrusive and not alter the color change when I stepped outside. I wasn't asking for much, was I? lol

What's super cool about Del Sol polishes is that they change instantly when you get into UV light! There's no waiting around.. it's like BAM! New color! And you can control the intensity of the color changed based on how many coats of the polish you use! 1 coat gives you a subtle change, while 3-4 coats gives a much more intense payoff.

But enough talk.. Here's what happens when I stepped outside:

No, I don't have gross cuticles.. it's Del Sol polish that I missed during clean up because it's clear! :\
AWESOME, RIGHT?! I know. I'm in love! You can buy Del Sol polishes from their website for $10 each, or you may be lucky enough to have a store located near you! :)


  1. Cool! I think the Del Sol I have is old and tired... it doesn't change very much any more :-(
