Product: KL Polish Ethereal Garden Collection
Claims: 6 Nail Polishes | Spring Colored Themed | 12-Free | Cruelty Free | Vegan
Size: 0.41 oz or 12 mL each
Purchase: NO LONGER AVAILABLE
First I want to apologize for the fact that I’m reviewing this collection and none of the polishes from it are no longer available. However, on the off chance that they do a final restock before going out of business I wanted you to see what the KL Polish Ethereal Garden Collection looked like.
About KL Polish Ethereal Garden Collection
The full-size Ethereal Garden Collection is made up of six polishes that can be purchased either individually or while supplies last as a collection. Each bottle has 0.41 oz. or 12 mL of polish in it and they come with a wider flatter brush.
For the Ethereal Garden Collection, KL Polish aimed for a more Spring theme, as this was the Spring 2018 collection, than what they typically do. As such, these colors are supposed to be more light and pastel while keeping with the brands usually opacity. There is one polish that is intentionally an outlier but we will get to that shortly.
KL Polish Ethereal Garden Collection Review
Before we get into talking about shades and my thoughts on them, I want to mention that the above photo is all of the polishes in the collection with one coat of polish while the below photo is the same collection but with two coats of polish. Now let’s talk about the shade names and what they are based on.
From left to right the shades are; Dream Boy which is a lilac purple with a hint of blue cream polish, this shade name is based off of a song reference. Next is Pinky which is a peachy / pink sheer polish, this shade name is from Kathleen Lights husband Danny. Next is Miss Kensington which is a mint sea foam cream polish, this shade name is from the movie It Takes Two. Next is Charmed which is a pink / purple duo-chrome cream polish, this shade name was named by fans on Twitter. Next is Selene which is a light yellow with a bit of brown tint to it and silver micro glitter, this polish is named after Kathleen’s dog but looks nothing like the dog. Lastly is Gum Would Be Perfection which is a white based bubblegum pink, the name for this polish is a quote from Chandler in the show Friends.
I wore these on the nails and while they wore like KL Polishes other polishes there were only a few of them I felt like going back and wearing again. Dream Boy and Gum Would Be Perfection are two colors that I feel like EVERY brand has done at least once before if not more. Selene is one of the shades that you have to be a fan of yellow to appreciate and while I’m okay with it Travis hates it so it’s not a color I reach for often. Miss Kensington, Charmed, and Pinky were my favorites of the collection and I could see myself reaching for Pinky and Charmed quite a bit but Miss Kensington is one of those shades I’m probably only going to reach for in the spring.
Final Thoughts on KL Polish Ethereal Garden Collection
The brutal truth is that I’m glad that this was the final collection I purchased back in 2018. I stopped purchasing after this because I was tired of a brand that was put out by a YouTube influencer who complains about how companies ship products, was shipping her products in lightly padded envelopes. I would purchase the collections and each time the outer boxes would be dented, tore, etc. because this person didn’t want to come off of some money for better packaging. Now that KL Polish and Kathleen Lights are parting ways it’s easy to see why because this was the start of some very unimaginative collections. Heck the Winter Reign was a blatant ripoff of Game of Thrones with polish names like Winter is Coming, Sophie, and Mother of Dragons and the promotional images weren’t much better. Ultimately if KL Polish restocks this collection I’d only pick up pieces if you’re a fan of pastels.
