Polish Me Silly Thermal Nail Polishes (Formerly Lush Lacquer)



Polish Me Silly may seem like a new indie brand, but I'll bet you are actually already familiar with them! They were formerly known as Lush Lacquer, but had to change their name for legal reasons. They're bouncing back with a new collection of colorful thermal polishes, and I've got nine of them to share with you today. Let me know which ones speak to you in the comments!

NOTE: All swatches show the "cold" state of the polish on my pointer and ring fingers, and the "warm" state of the polish on my middle and pinky fingers.

Caribbean Dreams is a blue thermal (temperature color changing) polish with smaller blue and silver glitters. There are some large and medium hexes that may show up every few nails as well. I found the glitter amount to be on the lower side, but it didn't bother me in this case. Both the warm and the cold states of this polish were bright and beautiful. Three coats.

Charmed, I'm Sure changes from a pinky lilac shade when warm to a cool purple when cold. It has large circle glitter as well as smaller purple glitters. The change on this one wasn't too noticeable to me, but maybe my hands just weren't warm enough to begin with. Still though, a pretty polish! Three coats.

I'm Bananas For You changes from yellow when warm to green when cold, and is accented by yellow and green glitters in various shapes and sizes. I like the little speckles that appear in the polish when it's cold! I think they add good visual interest. Three coats.

Leave It to Fall, Y'all changes from pale green when warm to orange when cold, and is sprinkled with orange and green hex and dot glitters plus short green bars. This is definitely the most jellylike of all the thermals. I've shown three coats here and I still found the "warm" state to be a little too sheer for my taste. If you are looking for something a little more understated, though, this one may be for you.

Misty River changes from a pale cornflower blue when warm to a pinky purple when cold. It has blue and purple glitters as well as some square and large hex pieces. I really like this one a lot; it has a very noticeable color change and the glitter balance is just right. I actually have been wearing this on my toes for a few weeks now! Three coats.

Peach Me a Lesson changes from a candy pink when warm to a peachy shade when cold. It has pink and orange glitters that complement both color changes well. This is another favorite for me. Like Misty River, it has a nice color change and the glitter balance is fantastic. Three coats.

Pinky Swear I'm a Star changes from a marshmallow white when warm to a pretty pink when cold. It also has a variety of glitters, including neon green and neon pink stars. Great color change on this one! It's a really fun shade. Three coats.

Sizzling Sunset changes from a soft yellow when warm to a salmon pink shade when cold. Seeing both of these states together makes me think strawberry banana, don't you agree? The glitter effect works really well in this one -- when the polish is warm the pink glitters pop, and when the polish is cold the yellow glitters pop! Three coats.

Cloudy Skies is my absolute favorite of the bunch. It transitions from a light grey when warm to a medium grey when cold. It is speckled with black and silver glitters that make this polish look like rock or stone. I love lacquers that have this effect and the color change is a totally awesome bonus. Three coats.
