Polished by KPT: Mars Escapade

Have you spotted the latest collection by Polished by KPT? It’s called the Cosmic XOdus Collection and consists of 10 gorgeous polishes including (of course) some gorgeous thermal ones. When I saw preview photo’s of the collection I instantly knew that Mars Escapade and A Dream Within A Dream needed to be mine.
Here’s Mars Escapade:
kpt - mars escapade3Since it’s cold and rainy here and I take my photo’s outdoors I’ve had a hard time capturing the true beauty of this polish. Therefore I made a short movie that I’ve posted on my Instagram account to show the transition (see it here).
I honestly don’t know how to describe this. It’s such an amazing combination of colors and shimmer. It’s a peachy pink when warm that turns purple when cold. Just amazing.
I applied three coats plus top coat here. kpt - mars escapadeI’d like to marry this polish 😀 If I’m looking for thermal polishes, Polished by KPT is my first stop to look for some. They are just perfect!

The formula is great. I used three thin coats plus top coat here.

Polished by KPT: Vanda

You know the moment when a must have polish launches and you’re sitting tight behind your computer with your eyes peeled and refreshing the page every minute to see if it’s there? Or is it just me that’s crazy like that? I proudly admit to be that crazy sometimes 🙂 The time zone difference can be a big pain though. And no, I’m not THAT crazy that I ‘hunt’ in the middle of the night.
Anyhow, I patiently waited for BeautySoFly to stock this beauty. This is a BSF Exclusive polish so it was only available there and is sold out at the moment. I don’t know if it will be restocked (sorry!). Here’s Vanda by Polished by KPT:polished by kpt - vandaAaahhhhhhhhhhh what a stunner! Look at the colors! It goes from a pale blue when warm to a gorgeous purple when cold. The formula is perfect. I used three thin coats plus top coat here. polished by kpt - vanda1

Polished by KPT: Blood ad Thick as Gold

Monday again! Ugh!

Here’s a gorgeous thermal polish that brightens up the day 🙂 This is called Blood As Thick As Gold by Polished by KPT. I was drooling over this for a while until Nailluminati (former known as Gimme All The Polish) surprised me with it in our massive nail swap. Thanks so much my friend!
polished by kpt - blood as thick as gold - transitionI especially love this polish because of the obvious color difference when warm or cold. The formula is great and the application is easy. I used two coats plus top coat. I take my pictures in natural daylight which sometimes makes it difficult to capture all the colors. When my hands are cold and I’m outside it takes forever for them to get warm again. Therefore I took the pics directly after I soaked my nails in warm/cold water. The picture above shows the transition. polished by kpt - blood as thick as gold - warmAbove my nails are mostly warm and below you see how it looks when cold:polished by kpt - blood as thick as gold - coldThis is a perfect polish to wear during Fall if you ask me. I love it.
