BYS Color Change Bright Purple

This is one of the two BYS color changing polishes I nabbed over the summer before they got sold out. I think Erika might have gotten one too, but I'm not sure!
This is really cool. It doesn't change from sunlight like the Del Sol polishes do, but rather from heat, so you get a really cool ombre look when you go into the cold or air conditioning :)

The color is named Bright Purple, and it changes from a deep but bright purple to a fuchsia pink with a subtle shimmer. It has a semi-matte finish (just as neon colors usually do) so for those of you who are like me, a topcoat will fix that ^_~ This is three coats, it is kind of sheer o if you don't want visible nail lines, I'd recommend an opaque base coat or a coat of white nail polish first :)

Andrea Acrylic Shield Rock 'N Blues

Hi everyone! Long time no see. I've just came back from my long leave of absence due to a loss in my immediate family. But enough about that, on to the nail polish!
I've got a vintage polish today by Andrea Acrylic Sheild. I found it in my drawer in my mom's house. It's a great metallic dark blue.. looks lighter in the photo (cameras never seem to do blue justice). This polish is OLD. I've had it at least 13 years, but I'm sure it's older. I did an internet search for this, but all I could find was an auction for their base coat on eBay. Anyone know any more about this brand?
