Wheel R11: Vintage China Glaze Thermals

Today for Nail Wheel Wednesday, I have a whole wheel of In the Mood polishes from China Glaze, thermals from a time when I don't remember that we called them thermals. I picked all of these up at a beauty supply store in Michigan, way back when dusty hunting was a thing and there still were a few treasures to be found. Most had long since lost their shade labels off the bottom, and I knew it wasn't likely they'd still change colors due to how old they were, but that didn't stop me from getting one of each shade they had. Since most weren't labelled, it does seem that I got some duplicates, the same shade just one bottle slightly more faded than the other. Note that some of the bottles have the China Glaze logo still in use today while some have an older style.



Same wheel after being run under hot water. Only polishes 19 and 20 show any signficiant color change.
