Bonito is named after one of Frida Kahlo’s beloved parrots, who would perform tricks at the table for pieces of butter. Like an Amazon parrot’s feathers layering from bright to dark green, this polish transitions between three shades of green.
Bonito is a thermal polish that transitions between light green (warm), medium green, and dark teal (cold) with holographic and blue-to-purple shifting glitters and teal shimmer.
This shade is part of the Frida Kahlo Collection.
Temperature reactive polish has a typical shelf life of 6 months - 1 year and may begin to lose their ability to change color after that. The polishes are not kept in temperature controlled containers during transit, and may require time to cool off/warm up upon arrival before color transitioning can be seen.
Opaque in 2-3 coats.
This nail polish dries slightly textured. We recommend applying clear top coat over the nail polish for a smooth, longer lasting mani!
Our photos are taken with daylight bulbs that replicate sunlight. Holographic nail polish looks best under sunlight and concentrated indoor lighting (e.g. halogen lights in the kitchen!).

I liked the color when I saw it on the site and am quite happy that it's prettier in person! VERY happy with the purchase as I am with everything I've purchased previously.
This is as pretty as they come, and the green(s) are really unusual shades. It's super refreshing and applies well
This is a lovely thermal polish. For some reason it didn't impress me as much as my other thermals. It dried semi matte and definitely needs a glossy top coat to bring out the holo sparkles. It needed 3 coats to be opaque. At least the coats dried fast. One big bonus is that it glows in the black light!
I LOVE this color!! I’m addicted to the color shifting polishes!! This one is gorgeous! The flecks of teak blended in make it multidimensional and stunning! The color change is very distinct as well!! Lovely color!!!
When I first started appling the polish it was kind of gulopy, but as I moved on to other nails it was not as bad. I really liked the colors it shifted from, and it worked like it was supposed to. Other than the starting application I really liked the end result of this polish.
