Big news, everyone! I have decided that I will be moving my blog over to Starlight Radiance on Blogspot.


I've felt for a while that The Clumsy Kiwi just didn't quite fit the feel I was going for with my blog, and I have a few things in the works that were also a push in the direction for a different name. (Those are soon to come!) I'll have some new manicures from the 31 Day Challenge up soon over at Starlight Radiance. I've loved having you all as my readers and I hope you all will join me over at Starlight Radiance to see what's new and coming!

Day 1: Red

Hello all! Everything has been very busy recently, and I'm actually currently wearing my "Day 2" polish right now, because I hadn't gotten around to posting my red yet. So here it is! Del Sol - Heartbreaker. A very nice glittery red polish that turns a bit purple in the sun, though not as purple as that bottle would suggest.

This is three coats of Heartbreaker, a red jelly base with red glitter, that turns into a purple jelly with red glitter in the sun.

Please excuse the tipwear. I believe this was after about three days of wearing the polish, and after helping my mom pack and move a bunch of boxes into a storage unit. She's moving to Texas for a while to be with my grandmother.

Here's a good comparison of the color change in the sun. Very pretty!

And here is another sun comparison, although the ring/pinky fingers had been in the sun for a couple seconds, so they were a little darker than the normal red.

I really love my Del Sol polishes. They are so much fun to watch change color! Also a good indicator as to whether or not your windows in your car are UV-protectant. Hehe. (Mine change color a tiny bit in my car - for shame!) I hope you enjoyed this color as much as I did! As always, happy painting!
