Blood Clot is a red jelly polish with large and medium red hexes. The hexes are only slightly darker than the jelly once you've layered a few coats of it, which creates this really unique effect that I don't think I've seen in an indie before. I found this to be shockingly easy to apply for being a jelly glitter. This shows three coats.
Them Bones is likely my favorite in the collection. It's a grainy black jelly base with white hexes and bars, meant to look like a deconstructed skeleton or a pile of bones. I know that "grainy black jelly" sounds kind of weird but it's really unique and beautiful, in my opinion. It makes the polish look kind of aged, like an old movie or old photograph. Again, application was not difficult and I've used three coats here.
Witchy Woman is a very complex polish. It is a grey-purple jelly base with purple shimmer, green, black, and fuchsia glitter, and purple shards. It can be layered to opacity in about three coats, but I've chosen to show it here layered over Zoya Petra because I loved the combo!
Finally, we have Candy Corn, another one of Chelsea's color changing polishes. Like Day Trippin', this polish changes color based on temperature. It is quite sensitive and changes very easily, and works with topcoat on. You can see a video of Day Trippin' changing here; this one works in the same way and with the same sensitivity.
I needed four coats for this. When it is warm, at normal body temperature, it is a yellow jelly. It wasn't the most flattering of yellows on my skin tone but I guess that just makes it more spooky for Halloween, huh?
When cold, it is a highly pigmented and dark orange. I dunked my fingers into cold water for this photograph.
You can literally watch this polish change colors if you so desire! In this photo, I dunked my fingers in cold water and then let my body temperature heat my nails back up. My nails are still orange where there are beads of cold water keeping them cold. Neat!
