Like the original title of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, this polish is not what it might first appear to be. Whether you're warm or cold to start, a change of temperature will surely invite a closer look.
First Impressions is a thermal polish that transitions between stone (warm) and cornflower blue (cold) with holographic glitter and blue-to-purple shifting shimmer.
This shade is part of the Jane Austen 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! Applying topcoat to your temperature reactive nail polish will not affect its ability to change color.
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!).

Because it was blue when I applied it, and stayed blue, I thought perhaps the color-changing properties weren't working. But when I took a hot shower later on, immediately I noticed the dramatic color changes and since then it's been really fun. I love the look of blue "French tips" when the color is in transition. Only needed 2 coats for a fully opaque wash of color, and it's such a pretty shade range. I have three of the Jane Austen polishes and this one is definitely my favorite!
I love this polish. It changes color easily and is so fun to wear. I especially love the ombré look I get with it.
Color is great. However, after 24 hours the polish peeled off cleanly. Not chipped but actually peeled off. I first did not notice until I realized there was no polish on my index finger. I looked at the floor and there was the polish laying like a sheet of paper.
Hi Heather! So sorry that First Impressions is not working as anticipated. Please check your email as our Customer Experience Team will be reaching out to you.
Works great! Colors change immediately with hot or cold temperatures.
I did a test on one nail and it looked beautiful until I applied Opi top coat. Now, it's solid blue. LLP was out of stock of their top coat. The description says a top coat won't ruin the effect. I wish they would do the research and tell us which brands work with it. I'd buy theirs if I knew it would work and free shipping. I'll wait till my nails grow a bit longer and see how well it works then- but not wait too long bc I believe these have a shelf life. Will be nice for special occasions.
