Purchase KL Polish
When I covered the KL Polish 70’s Vibes Collection, read that here a few weeks ago I covered the products used during the testing process and that seemed to go over well so I decided to keep doing it. Especially since some of the products changed for this collection so that I could show how KL Polish works with other brands besides Formula X. The products that stayed the same were the Zoya Polish Remover (8 oz. for $10 at Ulta), the Blue Cross Cuticle Remover (16 oz. for $5.99 at Sally’s Beauty), and the Cleanse from the Formula X the System. The products that changed for my review of the KL Polish Lips and Tips Collection were the Essie Apricot Cuticle Oil (0.5 oz. for $9.00 at Macy’s) and the Zoya Base Coat (0.5 oz. for $10 at Ulta).
Similar to the pre steps, the post steps contained products that were the same as when I reviewed the 70’s Collection and some I changed out. Starting with the products that were the same: Onyx 100% Acetone Remover to remove polish around the cuticle area, OPI Rapidry Polish Dryer (2.0 oz. for $10.95 at Ulta) to quick dry the top coat, and Nail Butter ($24.40 at Nail Butter) to hydrate the cuticle area before photos. The product that I changed up was using the Zoya Top Coat (0.5 oz. for $10 at Ulta) instead of the Formula X Top Coat. I like to stay within the same brand when using base and top coat instead of mixing it up because for me personally I just find that my polishes last longer that way.
KL Polish Lips and Tips Collection: Aquarius
Aquarius is a brown pink polish in a creme finish. Aquarius is a deeper version of Miss Honey, it is also meant to match the ColourPop Aquarius lippies. Aquarius was almost opaque in one coat but did need a second coat for full opaqueness.
KL Polish Lips and Tips Collection: November
November is a dusty pink polish in a creme finish. November is meant to match the ColourPop Ultra Satin Liquid Lipstick of the same name. November was a thicker polish that was opaque in one coat.
KL Polish Lips and Tips Collection: Lumiere
Lumiere is a dusty mauve pink polish in a creme finish. Lumiere is meant to match the ColourPop Lippie Stix of the same name. Lumiere had a thinner consistency and was almost opaque in one coat if you don’t wipe to much off the brush.
KL Polish Lips and Tips Collection: Taurus
Taurus is a camel brown polish in a creme finish. Taurus is meant to match the ColourPop Lippie Stix of the same name, in all honesty from Temptalia’s photos this is the best match! Taurus wasn’t opaque in one coat and in all honesty due to the shade this wasn’t my favorite.
KL Polish Lips and Tips Collection: Point Zero
Point Zero is a cool-toned gray brow polish in a creme finish. Point Zero is meant to match the ColourPop Ultra Satin Lip of the same name. Point Zero was another thinner consistency polish that was opaque in two coats and way more wearable, in my opinion, than Taurus.
KL Polish Lips and Tips Collection: Alyssa
Alyssa is a muted pink polish in a creme polish. Alyssa is meant to match the ColourPop Ultra Satin Lipstick of the same name. Alyssa is a thicker consistency polish that you could totally get away with wearing only one coat of.
KL Polish Lips and Tips Collection: Alyssa Lippie
As I just mentioned, the Alyssa nail polish is meant to match the Alyssa ColourPop Ultra Satin Lipstick. You can purchase this liquid lipstick separately on the ColourPop site or if you purchase the KL Polish Lips and Tips Collection (the box set here) you receive the liquid lipstick in the collection. Alyssa performs the same way that other ColourPop Ultra Satin Liquid Lipsticks do and is a great “Your Lips But Better” shade.
Final Thoughts on KL Polish Lips and Tips Collection
As you can see from the above photo, a lot of these polishes are very similar. You are getting 3 pink polishes that are very similar and 3 brown shades that are very similar but not as similar as the pink shades seem to be. So if you’re someone that loves more neutral shades then this collection is right up your alley. However, if you’re someone who doesn’t like neutral polishes or you only need one or two good ones in your life then you’re going to want to skip this collection. In all honesty, after swatching these I really wish that I hadn’t gotten this collection. I’ve said it numerous times that I’m not a big fan of neutrals but that the KL Polish neutrals are some of my favorites. That being said, I was really only happy with the pinker shades from this collection and they were so similar that it was kind of a waste a money for me. Lastly I do want to mention that after using these with both the Formula X and the Zoya Top and Base Coats that the KL Polish performs well with both but I prefer the Formula X due to the brush size.
Are you a fan of neutral polishes?
