Nerd Nail Challenge: Star Wars

I haven't actually watched Star Wars, I've watched little bits when it has been on but not really. So finding inspiration and actually knowing what the characters look like took some effort.

Nails: Monkey See, Monkey Do - Lilac French Animal Print

When I first saw this over on Colores de Carol I was completely inspired to have a go myself. All I did was swap the light blue for light purple.

Swatch: Ylin Mood Changing Polish - #7

This is a 'mood changing' polish, that said it changes colour based on temperature. I have another one of these polishes, in the shade 15 which is purple and pink. This particular polish is blue when warm and purple when cold, as I have long nails it gives a French manicure look to the nail where the length is colder than the nail bed.

This is two coats of the polish with a topcoat, I think that three coats would be ultimate opacity. I ran my fingers under the warm water tap and got this colour on my nails;

And this is the colour which happened once I ran my fingers under the cold water tap;
