Sumi is a thermal polish that transitions between sheer light gray (warm) and black (cold) with holographic glitter and gold-to-green shifting flakes.
This shade is part of the Japanese Art 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 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!).

The polish is lovely but it doesn’t color change like it should. I think this is more on shipping though as other color changing polish I’ve received in different times of the year work perfectly. It was extremely hot in my area so i think it was cooked in transit.
I have other thermal nail polish from Live Love Polish, but this one didn’t quite have the results of the others I’ve used from Live Love Polish. It still looks really pretty as is just wished the color changes actually worked well on this polish.
It really works! And the polish lasts for almost 2 weeks. LOVE, love, love this polish!
My favorite out of all of my purchases! Will buy again, and again.
