I recently got my hands on the Color Club Mood Changing Polishes and since my BM-XL25 plate had just arrived with its sea and wave designs, Extra Vert with a beautiful blue to pale green transition was top of my list to try. Color Club Extra Vert Mood Changing Polish seems pretty opaque on the brush but leaves some bald spots so required two coats with a thicker second coat for full opacity. Due to the thicker coat, dry time is a little slower than the other shades in the line.
Color Club Extra Vert is probably the closest to the bottle colours in the collection. The green shows a little deeper on the swatch stick than it does on the warmth of my nail. As with all thermal polishes, the colour will deepen as the temperature is more out of range. Like many thermals, it has a semi matte formula so use a nice glossy top coat for full shine.
