Ruby Wing Scented, Colour Changing polish in Chocolate Mousse: Swatch and Review

*Press Sample*

Hello gentle readers.

Today I have another Ruby Wing polish from their Cupcakes and Champagne Collection for Fall. This is Chocolate Mousse, a somewhat chocolate scented, colour changing base with mylar shards. This starts out ivory then swiftly morphs a deep, intense purple in the sun. Chocolate Mousse is crazy jelly, insanely translucent and squishy when purple. It looks like smooth, melted grape jelly with jewels embedded in it all over your nails. It's wild.

This swatch is two coats of Ruby Wing Chocolate mousse over two coats of white creme polish topped with Seche Vite.

Out in the sun. Was I lying? Look how translucent, you can see right down into the polish, the mylar shards sparkle like jewels in the sun. You have to see this in person. Seriously. You have to.  Before you move on, look down into the bottle. Doesn't it look like a giant, purple opal? 

The formula on Ruby Wing Chocolate Mousse is a touch thick. This is a polish that you want to treat with some care, have plenty on the brush, work quickly but don't rush it, be smooth and deliberate but don't roughhouse it. You will need to cozen the mylar shards a little. They distribute fairly well on their own but they like to bunch up and hang together a bit and you will need to break up their little cliques and spread them around. This needs a good, high shine top coat, I suggest a couple of coats, as it tends to be textured due to the nature of the mylar shards. 

What do you think of Ruby Wing Chocolate Mousse? Like? It isn't your normal shattered glass sparkle topper. If you kinda like that look but want a little something more, something special, this may be right up your alley. If you think that Ruby Wing Chocolate Mousse needs to be yours, you can find it here.

  5. You are chitting me. WOW! What drama! This is so cool, I can't stand it. Gotta get myself over to Harmon today and look for these pretties. Question: Why is it that Seche doesn't shrink on you? Hmmm? I mean...What's going on here?



    Gorgeous!


    This one is sick, Erika. Love.

  6. Seche Vite is a sneaky one. It doesn't really start shrinking until it dries and starts curing. I take my swatch pictures while my polish is wet and freshly applied. On some jellies, you can see early shrinkage... Especially at my tips. I think it would be a bit more visible in this case if I didn't have a dense creme base under. If I had let this mani dry completely I would have some shrinkage. I need to pick up some more Posche, it doesn't shrink as much. I also want to try Nubat Diamonte, I have it wishlisted on Amazon. I may also pick up some Revlon Color Stay fast dry top coat and see how it works with jellies. :D


    You need to get and try this polish, it's squish-a-licious. :D

  10. I wish I knew some secret. Unfortunately, Seche is Seche. LOL It is so fast dry, rock hard, glossy and shiny that I am willing to put up with a certain amount of shrinkage. Wrapping my tips and making sure that I get full coverage of all of my polish with the Seche Vite (so I don't get that funky glossy/dull breakup around the edges) helps to minimize the shrinking but with jellies, Seche is going to shrink and pull. Grrr!


    I tried China Glaze Fast Forward, it does the same thing as Seche Vite to jellies and it smells even more vile! I've read good things about the Butter London top coat but there is no way I can afford too pay eighteen clams a bottle for top coat, especially the way I blow through it! :P
