Ruby Wing Tide

Tide is another polish from the Ruby Wing 2012 colour changing collection.  The name doesn't seem to match the polish, to me tide is associated with the sea and should be blue/teal/green/grey coloured.

Ruby Wing Tide - Shade/Inside

Ruby Wing Tide - Outside/Sunshine

Inside Tide is iridescent glitter inside a very very pale pink see through jelly like base. Outside and under UV light Tide darkens and turns into a dark pink/red. The glitter is harder to see and becomes slightly matte.  This one is interesting because inside feels like it should just be a top coat, but I think any base colour used may alter the colour the polish turns outside.

Some of the Ruby wing polishes are currently on sale in New Zealand for NZ$9.90 at USANailsOnline (but Tide is still $19.90).

Lots of Love

This polish was sent to me for review


  1. Thanks for the swatch Lis! I've been wanting Tide the most but was worried it'd turn up crap
