As Spring sends us on a mad dash to the nearest pharmacy, we can hypothetically breathe easy knowing that we can also anticipate a blast of color from our favorite makers. Sacha of Jior Couture has an incredible non-traditional collection for Spring, created in collaboration with fellow Jior swatcher, Ashema, and Shirley of Three C’s Tees. In addition to this four-piece collection veering far away from your cutesy Spring pastels, they’re also thermals, which instantly puts me in jolly head bobbing mode. Sacha and Ashema decided on a cool dark to warm light thermal collection for their collaboration, stating that they wanted the shifts “to signify the switch from Winter to Spring”. Oh! And there’s also a thermo reactive Jior bottle keychain…uh huh! Okay, hold your nose, let’s jump in!
Metamorphosis is a deep turquoise blue in its cold state and then transitions to lighter turquoise blue when warm. In both states and in between, sparkling multi-chrome flakes can be easily spotted. The flakes are dispersed nicely throughout the jelly base and rest beautifully when applied. I’m wearing three coats with a glossy top coat.
Renewal is a glistening, red-leaning coral when cold and warms to a lighter, soft nude with gold shimmer noticeable in both states. I’m absolutely in love with this polish mid transition; the delicate nude with gold shimmer balancing the peppy coral. I’m wearing three coats with a glossy top coat.
Evolution is a pretty jewel-toned violet in its cold state and lightens to a sweet orchid when warm. A bright blue shimmer runs through it at both temperatures. I’m wearing three coats with a glossy top coat.
Transition is a deep charcoal grey when cool, and moves to a lighter dove grey when warm. A lovely rainbow of micro flakes and scattered holographic shimmer is spread throughout. Again, I’m smitten by the lighter, pretty much clear base of the warm state, with the holographic flakes showing pops of color. I’m wearing three coats with a glossy top coat.
Thermal Key Ring
Shirley of Three C’s Tees created this thermo reactive key ring in the Jior polish bottle shape. How fun is that?! It’s a cornflower blue when cool and goes pale blue when warm. The backing is hard plastic making it very light to carry.
This collaboration is available now for purchase from Jior Couture. If you’re a fan of thermal polishes, I’d definitely suggest them! Transition would go down as my favorite from the quartet! I’m transfixed by interactive polishes but seeing the drastic change from deep charcoal to that near clear nude that I have a soft spot for…yes, please!

Price: $46 for the set, including key ring or $10 per polish. The keyring is only available as part of the set.
