Polished by KPT So Socal Collection – swatches and review

Press sample

Polished by KPT recently released their summer collection, called So SoCal. It consists of three super sparkly glitters, five squishy jelly-cremes and nine (!) beautiful holographics. It’s like three mini collections in one! Let’s start with the holos:

 

Holographic:
All of these had almost the same formula, so I won’t review them one by one. All of these have one thing in common, the great formula! It’s like a dream to apply most of them! The formula is neither too thin or thick and I found them all very easy to work with. The only ones I found a little tricky to apply was the nude/beige No Makeup Needed and the light pastel pink Meet Me @Pink. I felt that the formula on those was a little thicker than the rest and slightly gloopy. Was it a big issue? Not at all, but still worth mentioning. So, are you ready for a holographic swatch fest?

Jelly creme:

Dries semi matte, is a little difficult to work with because of the watery formula. Is it worth that little struggle? Oh yes! 

 

Polished by KPT - Cool Under Fire

Wow, look at this stunning blue jelly-ish with purple undertones! A bit patchy at the first and second layer, but the third evened it out.

 

 

Glitters:

Color shifting sliver holographic glitters. I’m. In. Love. It was so easy to apply and the glitter spread out nicely and even over the entire nail. A great mix of clear base and glitter! 

 

Polished by KPT - Walk Of Fame over Living Like Royalty

Woooaah, this is my new favorite glitter topper! It’s like a holographic glittery rainbow exploded over my nails!
What about the formula and application, then? Same awesome formula as Under the Limelight. Applied like a dream!

 

Polished by KPT - Star Gazing over California Heat

This is Under the Limelight’s golden holographic sister. Do I love her as much as the silvery one? Yes, I do. Same great formula and super easy to apply!

 

And that’s all 17! What do you think of these? My top picks are: Walk Of Fame, Under the Limelight, Audrey, Cruising Beverly, Living Like Royalty, Viva LA and California Heat.
