Monday Obsession: A Manicure That Changes Color

Think of it as the 2014 version of mood rings.

Monday Obsession

So pretty, right? (Photo by Victoria Stern.)

Our photo director, Jess, is queen of the manicures. She tried Ciaté’s textured “Caviar” polish before any of us knew it even existed; before her bridal shower, she got her fiancé’s initials beautifully written on her nails; and she rocked painting one finger a different color years before it became a thing.


Her latest mani? A few coats of an always-changing gel mood nail polish, which she scored at Rittenhouse Nails at 1742 Sansom Street. The polish is In The Mood, and it's activated by your body heat, so the shades are always changing. It gives an organic-looking ombré look, and we're obsessed. Try it out now; the gel mani is $40 at Rittenhouse Nails.
