A couple of weeks ago I kept getting Instagram notifications with people saying congratulations to me. I didn't know what the heck was going on, and every time I would click to see why, I'd come up with a blank picture.

I don't even remember how, but I finally managed to get to a spot where a picture of five polishes showed up. A few clicks later I discovered on the Nail It magazine's Instagram that I had won a set of five thermal polishes from KPT. Awesomeness!!!

Then I got even more confused because it looked like it was actually an Instagram contest, the kind where you post the pic, tag them, yada-yada-yada....and I hadn't done that. Of course then I was afraid it was a mistake or that somehow I had not really even been qualified to win. Thankfully there was also a way to enter on Facebook, and that's how my name was chosen. Whew!!

I received the five polishes last week, and now I understand the fascination with these things. I received the five from The Basics collection. If you look, you'll find that they also make other colors besides the blue, purple, pink, green and peach that I received.

Not only are the colors really pretty, their hot/cold reaction is pretty dramatic.
KPT Living on a Breeze, thermal, color change
This blue, almost periwinkle, is KPT Living on a Breeze. In heat, it's almost white with just a hint of the blue. In cold, it's a really vibrant blue. I wore it for two days and had a pretty good time playing with the color change aspect.

When I first put it on, I thought I'd wear it on its own for a day and then stamp on it with white the next day, but I ended up just wearing it naked the entire time.

I wasn't really sure how the whole temperature thing would work since I have Custom Nail Solutions nails. I thought that maybe my natural body heat might not get through as well, but this was not an issue at all.

I'm a fan. And since I don't have anything to do right now, I think I'm going to go paint four fingers of my left hand with the other four colors just to see all of them swatched.

That's my excitement for the weekend.
