Icing Mood Swing Mood Polishes

 Hello lovelies.  It's been a super-busy week for me - I haven't had a whole lot of time for swatching or posting, or even doing my nails at all.  I wore a mani of Lippmann Ruby Red Slippers over China Glaze Lubu Heels for three days straight (well, it was for work, but still)!  

I have two polishes for you that I recently discovered - Icing has mood polishes now!
I showed you these in a recent haul post, and finally got the chance to try them out recently.  I'll start with the pink one, Romantic/Relaxed.

This is how it looks warm:
It's kind of a weird sandy-gold colour.  Not really the most flattering on me, but the contrast between it and the cool pink shade is striking.

And then it eventually turns pink as it cools:
And eventually it ends up as this:

Kind of cool, right?  Again, I'm not a huge fan of the colours themselves...  The pink shade is pretty, with a noticeable gold shimmer from the warm shade.  It looks pretty cool as it changes....

The other polish, however, Happy/Hopeful, was far and above my favorite:
This is the only picture I got of it, sorry :(  And the bottle walked away on me when I went to take this pic.  The base is a creamy bubblegum pink colour, and it changes to a deep royal purple colour, similar to China Glaze Grape Pop/OPI Funkey Dunkey, etc.  The contrast is even more striking than the pink and yellow one.  This is by far my new favorite mood polish - I like it even better than Claire's Happy/Earthy (my second favorite mood polish now).  I need backups.
*EDIT- Okay, I lied - I found a couple more pics of Happy/Hopeful:

This is what it looks like completely cool - note the Grape Pop/Funkey Dunkey similarity.

This is what you get when it's in that in-between, transitioning from cool to warm stage- a berry-ish purple.  Like Essie Splash Of Grenadine, or OPI Dim Sum Plum, but more purple.

And this is as it's changing - you can see the thumb starting to go pink.  Yes, definitely my new favorite mood polish :)

Alright, that's all for now.  I might make a point of going to Icing soon and seeing if they have any other ones, because I'm really impressed by these!

Till later!
