All about thermal Nail Polish


Winters are here and we have the perfect kind of polish to indulge yourself in. Thermal Polish, as the name suggests is sensitive to temperature and changes colour when exposed to heat or cold . Why winters are perfect for this polish? Well its because with the cold air nipping at your fingertips is the perfect situation for the polish to show its two colours!  

Thermal polishes have special pigment in them that make it sensitive to temperature. For example, when cold, a polish may be red and warm it may be beige. A good thermal polish looks like a gradient effect specially on long nails and does not need to be dipped in cold/warm water to see the entire spectrum of its colour. 

While thermal polishes have been only a few years in the market, they've gained immense popularity. Brands like Bow Polish and Color Flecks have been doing an amazing job at bringing quality and a huge variety of thermal polish shades to choose from. Check out the favourites from our shop:
