Polished by KPT Mars Escapade

I did this swatch a couple of months ago when it was really hot out! I should probably just re-do the swatching now that it’s not a zillion degrees out, but oh well, I thought I’d post these anyway! Anyway, this is a thermal by Polished by KPT called Mars Escapade. Here it is in its fully hot state:

And here was my pathetic attempt at getting it in its cold state… cold tap water was just not cutting it.

So then a I grabbed an ice cube and took some more pics trying to show the “cold” colour!

Basically this was a lesson not to bother wearing thermals in the summer here, haha! I should try this one again now that it’s getting cold out. This was three coats plus top coat by the way, and the formula was excellent and very easy to apply!

Dichromate is a thermal polish from Polished by KPT, shifting from yellow when warm to orange when cold. It has lots of silver shimmer in it giving a foil effect. Shown in various degrees/various finger combinations of warm/cold.

 I stamped over it using Kleancolor Metallic Mango and a pattern from Messy Mansion plate MM-13. I really like how it turned out!
