I wanted to start something new where before I talk to you about the polishes I tell you what I do to prep my nails before the photos. For this collection I started out by removing the previous polishes with Zoya Polish Remover (8 oz. for $10 at Ulta). After that I go through the manicure steps that I was taught in cosmetology school. When I get to the cuticle removal step I use the Blue Cross Cuticle Remover (16 oz. for $5.99 at Sally’s Beauty) and for this collection I used the SuperNail Cuticle Oil (8 oz. for $3.19 at Sally’s Beauty).
For this collection once I was done with the manicure steps I started in with the polish steps using the Formula X The System which is no longer available because Formula X has been discontinued. I start with the Cleanse on each nail and once that has dried I put on the Prime which is the base coat. I let the base coat dry for about 15 minute minutes and then go in with two coats of polish letting those each dry for about 15 to 30 minutes each. I then actually go in with part of the post step, which is coming up, and then follow up with Shine, the top coat, and let that set for about 15 minutes before heading off to take the photo.
For the post steps, after the second coat dries I go in with the Onyx 100% Acetone Remover and a small brush and clean up around the edges and cuticle. I usually pick this up at Walmart on the bottom shelf of the polish section. Once I’ve cleaned up the nail I go in with the top coat and AS SOON as it’s applied I give it a spray with the OPI Rapidry Polish Dryer (2.0 oz. for $10.95 at Ulta) and then make sure to let it set for about 15 minutes, as I previously stated.
After the top coat dries I go in with a little bit of Nail Butter ($24.40 from Nail Butter) in either the Lemongrass or Gardenia scent. I use this to put a bit of moisture back into my cuticle area and make it look healthy and not dried out. I actually use this in the evenings as well and love it!
KL Polish 70’s Vibes Collection: Wishbone
Wishbone is a white gray polish in a creme finish. Wishbone is more opaque than Coconut Milk and a bit deeper as well. Wishbone went on great and looked great on the nail.
KL Polish 70’s Vibes Collection: Mozart
Mozart is a purple polish in a creme finish. Mozart is more opaque and deeper than Hug & Roll, so far we’re on track for the 70’s Vibes Collection to be just a deeper version of the Spring 2017 Collection! Mozart went on great and looked good on the nail.
KL Polish 70’s Vibes Collection: Cozy in There?
Cozy in There? is a blue gray polish in a creme finish. Kathleen has said that she wants to have a blue shade in each collection and this is the 70’s Vibes Collection blue. Cozy in There? is actually my favorite blue in her collection so far! Cozy in There? went on well and looked AMAZING on the nail!
KL Polish 70’s Vibes Collection: Chloe
Chloe is an olive green polish in a creme finish. Chloe went on great and had amazing longevity.
KL Polish 70’s Vibes Collection: Prince Cornelious
Prince Cornelious is a bronze polish in a shimmer finish. Kathleen named Prince Cornelious after her dog Cornelious who is named after the Prince in Thumbelina. Prince Cornelious was opaque in one coat and actually looks it’s best in one coat. Pictured here is two coats and it really loses it’s beauty with two coats.
KL Polish 70’s Vibes Collection: Princess Penny
Princess Penny is a copper polish with a pearl finish. Princess Penny was also opaque in one coat and this picture is of it with one coat, I learned my lesson after the previous polish! Princess Penny is both great and bothersome at the same time. It’s great because it looks amazing in the light / sun, if you look closely at the top of the pinky you can see a bit of light flare from the polish, that is completely from the polish and was not added in editing! However, Princess Penny is bothersome because during removal the glitter in it goes EVERYWHERE; your finger, your hand, EVERYWHERE!!
KL Polish 70’s Vibes Collection Review
I think that the KL Polish 70’s Vibes Collection might be one of my favorite collections from KL Polish so far. While I don’t LOVE every polish in the collection, Princess Penny is just to much work to be an all the time polish, they were all good and I did wind up with 3 new favorites; Wishbone, Cozy in There?, and Chloe. If you’re looking for good polishes in deeper shades then you might want to give this collection a try. However, if you prefer to do your polish shopping in person instead of online then you might want to give these a skip.
