Polished By KPT So SoCal Collection Swatches, Review & Giveaway

Press Sample

Today I have 17 stunning shades from Polished by KPT to share with you PLUS a giveaway for the ENTIRE collection for one lucky winner!

The So SoCal collection is a 17 piece set that consists of some soft holographics, darker holographics, cremes, jellies and glittery top coats.  This is the first collection that does not include thermal shades (which I always loved) but it’s still a great lineup.

Let’s take a look at the collection then move onto the giveaway!

Glitter Toppers

We’ll start this off with the 3 glitter toppers!

Under The Limelight

Under The Limelight

Under The Limelight is a beautiful glitter top with color shifting shimmer that goes from blue to violet with silver holographic glitter mixed in.  I used 1 coat of Under The Limelight over Viva LA (which you will see under the jellies & cremes!)

Star Gazing

Star Gazing

Star Gazing is a glitter top coat with shimmer that shifts from red to violet with gold holographic glitter mixed in.  I used 1 coat over Not Another Pretty Face (which you will see under the cremes & jellies!)

Walk Of Fame

Walk Of Fame

Walk of Fame is a silver holographic glitter topper with a variety of colorful hex glitters mixed in.  I used 1 coat over California Heat (yep – you guessed it… you will see California Heat in the next group of polishes!)

The Cremes

Next up is the cremes & jellies!

Lips Like Monroe

Lips Like Monroe

Lips Like Monroe is a bright cherry red creme.  This has the juicy look of a jelly which gives it an extra boost.  Absolutely gorgeous and I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

Viva LA

Viva LA

Ohh Polished by KPT… you stole my heart with the vibrant purple crelly that is Viva LA!  I used 3 thin coats for these photos.  This definitely had the consistency of a juicy jelly but the opacity built up really nicely in 3 thin coats.

Viva LA was the base color that went with the topper Under The Limelight from the glitter top coats above.

Not Another Pretty

Not Another Pretty Face

Not Another Pretty Face is a beautiful magenta creme.  I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

Not Another Pretty Face was the base color for the glitter topper Star Gazing shown above.

California Heat

California Heat

California Heat made my camera flip out a bit.  This is the brightest shade in the collection and it’s a neon red-orange jelly.  My camera picked up more orange and in person it does have a redder hue to it.  I used 3 thin coats for these photos.  The closeup photo below is much closer to the true shade.

California Heat was the base color used for Walk Of Fame glitter topper.

Cool Under Fire

Cool Under Fire

Cool Under Fire is the sheerest shade in the collection.  This is a deep turquoise jelly.  I used 3 thin coats for these photos.  There is a touch more green in person for this shade but my camera just wanted to pick up the blue.

The Holos

Next we’ll look at the holographic shades! Fun Fun!

Audrey

Audrey

Audrey is one of my favorites from the whole collection.  This is a gorgeous plum red linear holographic.  I used 2 coats for these photos and a glossy top coat.

Melrose-dramatic

Melrose Dramatic

Melrose-dramatic is a ruby red linear holographic.  I used 2 coats for these photos.

Love On Magnolia

Love On Magnolia is a raspberry red linear holographic.  I used 3 thin coats for these photos and a glossy top coat.

Living Like Royalty

Living Like Royalty

Living Like Royalty is a vibrant purple linear holographic.  I used 2 coats for these photos.

Shots All Around

Cursing On Beverly

Cursing On Beverly

Meet Me @Pink

Meet Me @Pink

Meet Me @Pink is a soft light pink holographic.  The holo in this one is very soft and I love the delicate nature of this polish.  So pretty!  I used 2 coats for these photos.

Waiting On Tiffany

Waiting On Tiffany

Waiting On Tiffany is a light but vibrant blue linear holographic.  I used 3 thin coats for these photos.

No Makeup Needed

No Makeup Needed

No Makeup Needed is a nude linear holo with a subtle pink shimmer.  I used 3 thin coats for these photos and I love how the pink shimmer gives it a slight glowing effect.

Overview

This was a beautifully done collection.  There is a nice mix of colors from vibrant to dark.  I had no application issues with any of the polishes and they are all shades I would wear again.
