Polished By KPT - Round 2!

Hi there!

I have a treat for you! I have four lacquers today from one of my favorite brands Polished By KPT. These aren't part of a specific collection, but it is four of the 6 I have left to post!

As a heads up to those of your who want some Polished By KPT shades, Katherine will be having a full restock, tomorrow, July 20th at 7PM PST!! You'll have to be quick though, because she sells out FAST! You can go to her shop for a list of the lacquers that will be available in this restock.

So first up from KPT today is Dream Lover.

Dream lover is a sheer white jelly base with multi sized and shaped pastel glitters. As it has been swatched many times over white, I decided to do something a little different this time.

I started this manicure with two coats of Cult Nails Princess, a light blue cream with a copper shimmer. I topped Princess with two easy coats of Dream Lover, then coated the whole thing is a layer of Seche Vite Topcoat.

I love the softness of this and I really love it over the blue!!  
Next from KPT is one of the things she is famous for, thermals! This is Hot Like Wasabi! 

Hot Like Wasabi is a light green to yellow thermal that fades to a khaki color when warm. It is jelly in consistency and can be worn alone or layered over another color. This version of Hot Like Wasabi also has a slight holo shimmer added.

I chose to layer Hot Like Wasabi over two coats of OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls. I used Two coats and then topped with Seche Vite Topcoat. If I had used a more green base color, Hot Like Wasabi would look closer to an actual wasabi green.

While this is not a color I would have picked for myself, it is really striking, and I can see a lot of people really loving it!
Spectraflair topcoat is something that is rather coveted in the Nail Polish community. Well here I have for you the KPT Spectraflair 35 topcoat that came make any color holographic!

Unfortunately I wasn't in the sun, so the holo is not as strong as it might have been, but it rained here for about 3 weeks, I swear, I just couldn't get sun photos of these colors.

I love that I can put this over anything and it will look fabulous. I used one coat of the Spectraflair 35 topcoat over two coats of Cult Nails Ay, Poppy! (which is, if I may say, absolutely stunning.) I topped the whole thing with Seche Vite topcoat. I had no problems with the topcoat dulling the holo effect at all.
I can't wait to put this one over everything I own. ;)
Last is my favorite from this bunch of lacquers. Here is Fluorescein in all her glory!
This stunning neon green jelly is super sheer, but super pretty and has a holo shimmer all of its own. <3 <3 <3
I really don't think I could love this any more than I do. I wanted to see how many coats to full opacity on its own, and I think I wound up with 5 thin coats of Fluorescein before I had no visible nail line. Next time I wear this, I will definitely be using undies!

I really love the vibrancy of this color in the jelly consistency. <3 From what I hear, this one also glows in blacklight ;)
What do you think? are you crazy over KPT?
Don't forget, there is a restock tomorrow, July 20th at 7PM PST! All of these colors except Fluorescein will be included in the restock!!
