Del Sol nail polish

Posted by Halifax @ Sparkled Beauty

Don't know whether you guys remember, in one of my Weekend finds posts back in June, I mentioned Del Sol, the store that sells lots of fun stuff that changes colour in the sun. I am only interested in their colour-changing nail polishes. They are in the medium price range (CAD10/ bottle - wish they were cheaper!), and come with quite a wide range of shades. Imagine you wear a light/nude shade on your nails while in the office/ indoor and it changes to a fun bright shade as soon as you step outside under the sunlight. How fun is that? This is what Electrik looks like in the sun. Indoor, it's a light baby blue shade.

Back in May, Del Sol website had 50% sale on nail polishes with minimum $50 purchase (USD10/ bottle, this is the only case I see a par between CAD and USD). I was really tempted to get some bottles, but found out the deal didn't apply in stores. According to Del Sol's Customer Service, the stores are privately owned, so they don't correlate sales with the website. Bummer! And with online shopping, besides shipping cost (which I don't know how much), there will be GST/HST, plus $10 brokerage fee!!! That didn't even make sense, so I passed up the sale, obviously.

So, if you live in the States and are interested in trying out a few Del Sol bottles, keep an eye on the sale. 50% off will be the best, but that deal doesn't come around very often. Right now, they have the same sale as the store here: buy 3 nail polishes get 1 free, until August 5. For Canadians, check out the store locator on the website to see whether there is a store near you. We could also hope one day the stores will decide to put on a better sale than "Buy 3 get 1 free". Maybe Boxing Day, lol...

To see the polishes in action, check out Scrangie's Del Sol polish swatches of Heartbreaker, Ruby Slippers, Secret Crush and Rock Star.

Note: I am not commissioned by Del Sol, just so you know. Let me know if you have any of these cool polishes or are going to get any :-)

  1. I got one! Just a couple of weeks ago! Yes, they are SO much fun!!!! We (my daughter and I) got a sparkly red one which turns sparkly purple in the sun.

    I have to say, the quality isn't so good, and it chipped pretty badly the next day.

  2. Awww, that's so sad that they didn't last. I was eyeing these for a long time :-)
