RUBY WING: Doux & Strawberry Shortcake

Ruby Wing Strawberry Shortcake (L) and Doux (R)

 Happy FRIDAY! Today I have to show you 2 Ruby Wing polishes! I've never tried these color changing polishes, always wanted to though, so I'm super stoked to share with you the 2 colors from their Fall Cupcakes & Champagne Collection that I was sent to review :]




Apparently these 2 polishes are scented? Maybe my sniffer is broken but they both smelled exactly the same and it wasn't a smell I could identify haha. *shrugs* Scented polish isn't a big deal to me anyway :P

Doux is an irridecent micro-flakie polish. In the shade it is a very sheer polish, you can pretty much only see the micro-flakies which give off a lightish lavender/pink color. In the sun this polish does a total 180! It turns into a shimmery blurple. The flakies seem to have a duochrome to them, at some points they look bright blue and others they look purple.

I did 3 coats of Doux. The application was easy and the dry time was good. I don't have any complaints about the formula of the polish. The only thing I didn't like is that cleaning it up indoors made for a nice, ugly, surprise when you went outdoors lmfao. I'm sure after a shower it would go away, but it sure did make my fingers look dirty :[ Prob should of done cleanup outside hahahaha

Strawberry Shortcake in the shade is a clear base with gold and holo gold glitter galore. In the sun the clear base turns into a ruby red! I really liked the color change and the glitter looks great against the red color.

I did 2 coats of Strawberry Shortcake. I again had no issues formula wise with the application or dry time. I was pleased to see how much glitter was in 1 coat and was happy I didn't need a 3rd for full coverage.

I was really impressed with the color changing ability of this polish! When I was in middle/high school I was introduced to Del Sol polishes. I had a few and I was OBSESSED with them. I think I still have the Ruby Slippers one in my stash actually haha. I was impressed with these. The color change when your nails hit the sun is almost instantaneous in comparison to the Del Sol polishes I've used. Using these 2 makes me really want to try some of their creme ones! These are just too much fun!
