NOTD: Poseidon?

Today I discovered something very interesting. I wanted to wear NOX Twilight Poseidon, which is a bright, turquoise leaning medium blue. You might remember my review from last year, which clearly depicts how bright and saturated the polish is. Here is a swatch from last year's post:

Here is another picture which shows a comparison of Poseidon and China Glaze Flyin' High:

They are no dupes, but they're very similar, at least in the same territory. Let's keep that in mind.
When I reached for Poseidon in my drawer today, I was really shocked and confused, because it was clearly different than what I remembered. I mean so clearly, that it was a completely different polish now!

I almost couldn't believe my eyes for about five minutes. First I shook the bottle violently, but I already knew that the pigments have faded and the original color wouldn't be restored. I never experienced anything like that before. The other NOX Twilight polishes are just fine, it's only the poor Poseidon that decided to wither.
I've been seeing different versions of Poseidon around, but I always thought it was intentional. Now I'm sure there is an issue with the blue pigment, and all of those versions of Poseidon around are just at different degrees of fading process.
The new Poseidon is gorgeous at its own, it's an exact dupe of China Glaze Sea Spray, just without the shimmer. But I'm really missing the original color, because I didn't have any dupes for it and I loved that polish...
Has anything like this ever happened to you? Let me know what you think!

Bugün çok ilginç birşey keşfettim. Daha önce başıma hiç böyle birşey gelmemişti. Canım bugün NOX Twilight Poseidon'u sürmek istedi, hatırlarsanız geçen yıl tanıtımını yapmıştım, buradan okuyabilirsiniz. Ojenin rengi turkuaza çalan parlak bir maviydi, tam yaz mavisi yani. İdi diyorum, çünkü artık değil. Öncelikle geçen sene çektiğim resimleri göstermek istiyorum. Aynısı olmasa bile rengi China Glaze Flyin' High gibi, biraz daha açığı sadece.
Bugün ise çekmeceden ojeyi aldığım anda dumura uğradım desem yeridir. Çünkü ojeyi resmen tanıyamadım, hatta kim bunu gelip çekmeceme koydu diye düşündüm. Etiketini görmeseydim inanmayacaktım. Oje bambaşka bir renge dönüşmüştü!
İlk verdiğim tepki ojeyi çalkalamak oldu, ama içten içe bunun işe yaramayacağını, kalıcı bir şekilde rengin değişmiş olduğunu biliyordum. Ojenin rengi hem solmuş, hem de açılmış. China Glaze Sea Spray'in sedefsiz versiyonunu düşünün, hatta Pastel en son bu renkte bir oje çıkardı. Resmen o renk olmuş, yani aşırı soluk, griye çok yakın bir bebek mavisi.
İşin garibi diğer NOX Twilight ojeleri ilk günkü gibi duruyor, olan sadece zavallı Poseidon'a olmuş. Ben bu halini de beğendim ama eski halinin eşi yoktu bende, bu yüzden üzülüyorum keşke böyle birşey olmasaydı diye...
Birkaç kişide Poseidon'un yeni versiyonu adı altında bu renge yakın hallerini görmüştüm, ama sadece ojeyi değiştirdiklerini sanmıştım. Meğer onlar da solmanın çeşitli aşamalarındaki halleriymiş, sorun büyük ihtimalle kullandıkları pigmentte. Çok ilginç gerçekten...
Hiç başınıza böyle birşey geldi mi?

  8. Ben de böyle bir durumu Pastel'in ojesinde yaşamıştım. =) Neon serisindeki 304 numaralı fuşya?! -mora çalan desem daha doğru olur- rengi oje; bir süre sonra pembeye dönmüştü. ( ve sanırım artık sadece ben de değil, raflarda kalanlar da pembe. =)) Aynı şekilde hüsran olmuştu. =)
    Sevgiler,
    Gülşah.

  9. Wow, what a difference. At least the colour changed evenly... still, the original colour looked better :/

  10. You have 2 China Glaze polishes and you didn't know about that XD

    ReplyDelete
  11. @gnoma I didn't get that one, sorry =D

  12. O.o

    I didn't know something like this could happen...

    ReplyDelete
  13. OH MY GOSH! I'm crushed to see the fade, and I don't even OWN this polish! OH MY!! I cannot believe it faded down like that. I have never seen any polish do that...ever! So odd! I wonder, has anyone contacted the company and see what they say about it?

  14. I love that grey its gorgeous!

    shel xx

  15. That is very strange. I've seen it happen to regular wall paint but never to nail polish and never that much of a shade change! At least the grey dusty shade is pretty huh?!

    ReplyDelete
  16. başakta pastelin neon morunun değişip pembe oldugunu söylemişti ama bu resmen mutasyona ugramıs

    ReplyDelete
  17. It happened to me too, but with another brand polish. Strange huh? Don't know how it's possible, because I stored my polish in a drawer, so there's no sunshine of whatever could cause this...

    But in your case: the color it is now is also beautiful :)

    ReplyDelete
  18. Çok şaşırdım hiç başıma gelmemişti :/

    ReplyDelete
  19. Damn! I cannot believe this happened! And to such a beautiful polish! What a shame! New color is pretty, though. And the bottle? A masterpiece!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Now I want to buy this color even more! HA!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Hayatımda ilk kez böyle bir şey görüyorum. Mucize gibi. Şans mı şanssızlık mı bilemedim. Ama bu hali de çok güzel olmuş. :)

    ReplyDelete
  22. O_O I knew colours could change over time, but I've never seen such a drastic change, what a shame!

    ReplyDelete
  23. This is bizarre . Wow . Both colors are gorgeous though .

    ReplyDelete
  24. wow that's really weird xD but both colors are pretty

    ReplyDelete
  25. Wow! Impressive and shocking, no? It happened to me too with another brand called Yes Love, first it was a vivid purple and after a year it was a neon bright pink... I was looking at my nails wondering what the heck was going on until I found it out... it lost the pigment with the time passing by.... it's the only case in my stash too. But hey, don't be sad, it looks great anyways ;) You can't go wrong with greys :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. That's thoroughly bizarre! Not that the year-later colour isn't pretty (I'm a sucker for grey cremes) but for it to fade so thoroughly! Did you contact the manufacturer?

    ReplyDelete
  27. I wonder how many polishes behave this way. WOW!

    ReplyDelete
  28. baya ilginç olmuş deniz'cim.
    ben de daha önce koyulaşan, ya da açılan ojeler oldu ama bu adeta mood ojelerinin zamana yayılan versiyonu olmus. bu akdar radikal değişiklik cok enteresan!!

    ReplyDelete
  29. How incredibly strange! I had to double back and re-read your post to make sure I didn't miss something. I thought you were talking about two different polishes at first! I have never seen anything like that happen before.

    ReplyDelete
  30. wow! how strange is that! :o

    ReplyDelete
  31. I've had polish fade on me, but never that quickly. The most disappointing one was my Creative Hot Pop Pink. When I bought it, it was the most perfect pink ever. I'm glad to see it in Shellac now, but I have a bunch of bottles of what is now light carnation pink.

  32. this is crazy! but i like new color ;-D

    ReplyDelete
  33. I've seen it, but usually with purples. Anyway, I loved the "after" color. lol

    ReplyDelete
  34. that's so strange! I absolutely love sea spray though so I wouldn't be too upset :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. Would it keep fading even more? Please do a follow up next year! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  36. OMG. i would have been so upset!!!! but i do love that color - and the bottle. I'd probably just end up buying the NOTX in this color JUST for the bottle it's so lovely!
    I'll just have to paint my nails the same color every day for 365 days to get my money's worth....

    ReplyDelete
  37. how sad :( The original was so pretty. My first bottle of china glaze purple panic turned into a horrible dusty orange and i didn't even realize that when i purchased it again, i already had it

    ReplyDelete
  38. A few summers back my sister and I were obsessed OPI Hey! Get in Lime! and went through a few bottles. We were sure it was more blue each time we bought it, so we saved a bottle to compare to the next and it was definitely different, so the blue must fade over time. Not nearly as dramatic a change as Poseidon though.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Gah, WANT. (and second the partly just for the bottle bit, man that's just pretty all around)

    ReplyDelete
  40. wow, tbh both 'versions' are very pretty but .. yeah, it shouldn't have happened. I discovered that the turquoise shades are prone to fading very quickly, after swatching them on a colour wheel. After a couple of days Mermaid's Tears and Turquoise and Caicos (if I remember correctly) turned grey. The color is still fine in their bottles though and I hope it stays that way.
