Hello Loves! I have the new Rise Up Collection from Bundle Monster to show you today. This is unlike anything Bundle Monster has released before. Sure, we've seen plenty of thermals in the BMC line, but these little beauties are solar changers! What does that mean, exactly? Well, they're one color indoors or in the shade and a completely different color when exposed to UV light or in direct sunlight. Fun, right? How about we take a look?
The first color in the collection is called Courage. Courage is a soft, milky white with a sightly pink tint when indoors.
But as soon as you walk outside (or stick your hand in your gel lamp), it quickly shifts to a rich purple.
Let's look at the two phases of Courage side by side. Excuse the condensation on my nails in the sun photos. We apparently keep our house very cold.
The second color in the collection is called Resilience. Resilience starts as a sweet, slightly green leaning light blue when in the shade.
Once you step into the sun, it shifts to a rich, medium blue. I simply love this one! I mean, blue, right?
Here's the side by side of Resilience. By the way, I know my skin looks really pink in the outdoors shots. Yeah, so I took those with my phone and apparently it thinks my skin tone should resemble a lobster.
The final shade in the collection is called Hope. Hope starts out as a slightly peachy, light pink in the shade. In this form, it does show a bit of VNL even after three coats.
In full sun, it shifts to what I would consider a bright raspberry shade.
Here's the side by side of Hope.
Since these solar changing gel polishes are so fun to play with, I couldn't resist a little art. I added some dots, flowers and swirls over Hope with Resilience. I'm not really fond of the combination in the shade, but I'm beyond in love with the combo in the sun. If I end up with a sunburn this week, you'll know why! lol
And sun. Maybe I just like more saturated colors? I don't know, but I adore this! Oh, I should also note that they get darker with greater UV exposure. So the pink (or raspberry) in this photo looks much darker than in the swatch above.
What do you think of these fun solar changing gel polishes? Are they your cup of tea? I think they're really fun to play with, but I'm not sure if I'm outside enough to really If so, you can get them on Bundle Monster's Website here or on Amazon here! (The links to Amazon are for Courage, but the other colors and the whole collection are options under the same listing)
