Polished by KPT The Basic Series Collection Swatches & Review

by Lisa Heath

Press Sample

Polished by KPT has released 5 new thermal shades which is appropriately titled “The Basic Series”.  The Basic Series consists of 5 fairly basic shades that transition to lighter, pastel like shade.

Most of Polished by KPT’s thermals have a dash of shimmer or glitter within them, but The Basic Series are all cremes.

Roses For Juliet

Spring Around Me might actually be my favorite of the 5!  Spring Around Me is a medium minty green when cold (above) and transitions to a bright lime green when warm (below).  I used 2 coats for these photos.

Application wise, I had no issues with any of these shades.  I love that the transition colors are so obvious and change so easily.  My top pick is easily Spring Around Me, but Delilac and Livin On A Breeze are also some favorites from this collection.

Price: $12.00 Each
