Sun Switch: Your shortcut to summer’s tonal nail trend

Sun Switch: Your shortcut to summer’s tonal nail trend


This season, it's all about multi-dimensional beauty. You only have to scroll through Instagram to see that it’s a key trend – from ombre manicures to color-flipping eyeshadows, everyone’s embracing variety this summer.

However difficult social media makes it seem, experimenting with color can be easy. Introducing Sun Switch: our new nail polish with shade-shifting pigments. Its unique formula instantly adapts to the sun’s UV rays, switching between two staple shades in seconds.

Easy to apply, Sun Switch eliminates the need to choose just one nail color – perfect for the indecisive among us. It’s clever nail art without any serious commitment or effort; all you need to do is pick your shade and follow three simple steps.



Choosing your Sun Switch shade

Made with two-tone pigments and an ultra-glossy finish, Sun Switch is available in
three on-trend hues. Clean Slate, a refreshing turquoise shade, transforms into cool grey when you step into the sunshine while the Marshmallow formula sees classic white change into the prettiest pink.

Seeking something more sparkly? Opt for Treasure Chest: a glitter polish that shifts from sleek silver to a dazzling red once outside. Beyond just summer, it’ll take you all through the party season in style.



How to use Sun Switch

Giving yourself the perfect manicure is easy. Just follow these three steps:
1. Once you’ve decided on the shade you want to use, paint two coats of Sun Switch onto clean, dry nails
2. Apply a top coat to seal your polish and help your manicure last longer – make sure your Sun Switch has fully dried beforehand or you’ll risk spoiling all your hard work
3. Step outside (don’t worry if it’s cloudy!) to watch the magic unfold – once you’re out of the sun, it’ll change back to its initial shade
