DOCTOR LACQUER : Adrenaline and Oxytocin

Hi there, my darlings! I have one more post showcasing Doctor Lacquer--these are two thermal color-changing polishes from her Hormonal Efficiency collection! And true to Doctor Lacquer's name, each of these polishes have been inspired by something medically or scientifically related. The polishes that make up this collection are all inspired by hormones (chemicals in the body that elicits changes in another part of the body or acts as messengers between different parts of the body) commonly found within the human body.

The two polishes I've reviewed for you are Adrenaline and Oxytocin. Adrenaline, the so-called "fight or flight" hormone, prepares the body to deal with critical  or dangerous situation--that is, it prepares the body to either fight for its survival or flee. Oxytocin, on the other hand, is the hormone associated with feelings of pleasure, satisfaction and even love. Now that we've explored the inspiration behind these polishes, let's get to swatches, shall we? =)

First up, I have for you Adrenaline--a bright yellow crelly, both at body temperature and in the bottle, with lilac, lavender, magenta and purple hexes, squares and circles in various sizes. Both application and formula were consistently smooth and the swatches below show 3 coats on its own.

Since this is a thermal, it changes to a bright orange when exposed to cold temperatures, such as dipping your hand into a bowl of cold water. The swatches below show these results.

The second polish from this collection I have for you today is Oxytocin--in the bottle and in cold temperatures, this polish is a dark reddish-pink with fuschia, orange and red hexes, squares and hearts. At body temperature, that is, once applied to the nail under normal conditions, the base turns clear. No issues with formula or application and even the large hearts came out fairly easily. The swatches below show 3 generous coats on its own.

When dipped under cold running water, the results are as below :

So there you have it, my darlings! 2 polishes from Doctor Lacquer's thermal Hormonal Efficiency collection! Check out these and the rest of the collection on her website HERE for the FAB price of $8.99 for a full-size, 16.5 mL bottle! You can also follow her on Instagram @doctorlacquer for the latest updates OR let's show her some love on her new Facebook page--either way, tell her ColorSutraa sends her love!

If you're skeptical about thermals, I highly recommend these--the change was prominent and pretty easy to induce!
