Hii! How's it going? Grab your sunglasses because I have quite the neon love to show you guys. Today I'll be showing you swatches for the Summer Rainbow Thermal collection by CDB Lacquer. This collection will be available in three different finishes - creme, scattered holo, and glittered. The ones I received to swatch are the straight creme colors, which turned out fantastic for watermarbles and stamping (more about that at the end of the post).
The Summer Rainbow Thermal collection by CDB Lacquer will be releasing May 1st at noon EST. Each bottle will only be available in full size for $8.50 each.
In an effort to save some time, especially with the amount of photos in this post, I'll be doing brief descriptions for each polish. The six-piece collection shares a similar formula application throughout. You'll find that the formula has a good smooth application, however, they do tend to be sheer. Each one of the colors does build-up nicely and they even out with two to three coats. All of them do dry to a silky matte finish, but I did use a glossy topcoat for each one of my swatches. Now let's get to the swatches!
Youthful Yellow is a bright sunny yellow thermal when warm that turns into a buttery darker toned yellow when cold. I didn't expect it to have such a visible thermal change, but I am (for the first time ever) in love with a yellow polish.
Outgoing Orange is a light orange when warm and transitions into a dark tangerine orange when cold. This is again not a color I would normally like to wear, but it's actually stunning against my skintone.
Gleeful Green is a thermal that shifts from lime green when warm to a dark green when cold. I couldn't get the'cold' variation to photograph under the hot lamps very well, but this does shift a few tones darker when cold.
Bubbly Blue is a thermal that shifts from a sky blue when warm to a darker blue when cold. Although I adore the shade of blue, the transition for this one is too subtle for my liking. I definitely would of liked to see the darker tone maybe dip a bit more into the navy blue region.
Playful Purple is a thermal that shifts from a bright fuchsia when warm to a dark purple when cold. This is probably my second favorite among the collection and I do have to slap the 'must-have' label on it. The transition is very gorgeous and dramatic, just like I love my thermals.
Raging Red is a thermal that shifts from a bright neon pink when warm to a cherry red when cold. And this, of course, is my favorite among them all! The color change just stole my heart like no other did, it's so squishy and just fantastic! Definitely a must-have.
Overall I am a huge fan of the Summer Rainbow Thermals by CDB Lacquer! Very impressive formula, however, it should be noted that the consistency is a bit more on the jelly side than creme. That said, they do marble AND stamp flawlessly like a creme normally would. So while it's a little odd, they do obviously work very well (watermarble from yesterday's post). These also happen to be... black-light reactive! Go get your rave on!
