Polished by KPT Fall 2014 Collection Paris & Me Swatches and Review

Press Sample

I have a special treat for you tonight!  The Fall 2014 Paris & Me Collection from Polished by KPT!  This is a collection full of thermals, sparkle and holo.  Absolutely gorgeous.

One thing though, I am in California and we apparently didn’t get the memo that it’s now Fall, so I got some decent shots of the thermals in both stages, but my polish kept switching to warm super quick, so you get more “warm” shots.  I had my trusty glass of ice water to assist me, but even then, I was just too warm!

Let’s dive into Paris & Me!

Same Fall Different Beginning

Same Fall Different Beginning

Same Fall Different Beginning is just.. original, beautiful and one of my favorites of the group.

In it’s cold stage this is a deep plum purple to cranberry shade with gold flecks and gold micro holographic glitter.  When warm it goes pretty much clear with the gold flecks and gold micro holo glitters becoming the star.

I used 2 coats for these photos.

This is Same Fall Different Beginning in its cold stage.  This is the only ok photo I could get before it changed back to warm stage.

Belli Ami

Belle Ami cold

This is an amazing Fall shade.

In its cold stage, Belli Ami is a deep brown burgundy holographic that turns to a charcoal grey holographic when warm.  Above is the “cold”stage.  I used 3 thin coats for these photos.

Midnight Lust

Midnight Lust Warm

Midnight Lust is a gorgeous deep blue with purple undertones and purple, blue and green shimmer, but when warm (above) it shifts to an opal base with purple, blue and green shimmer.  I used 3 coats for full opacity.

Again, this kept shifting when trying to photograph!

Here isn’t transitioning between the 2 colors.  This is pretty in every stage!


Falloyou Cold

Fall-O-You is the 4th and final thermal polish in the collection.  This is a nice deep olive green holographic when cold (as shown above) and turns to a charcoal holographic when warm.  I used 3 coats for these photos.  Again, a great Fall shade.

Rogue-Lette In Love

RogueLette In Love

Rogue-Lette In Love is a bright brick red holographic and has a subtle shift to a red orange shade.  It also has purple and opal micro shimmers within it. I used 2 coats for these photos.

Cloudy Days Go Away

Cloudy Days Go Away is the only creme and shimmer shade in the set.  Grey is a popular shade for Fall right now, and this is a gorgeous grey with a nice kick to it.  This is a light grey base with blue and green micro shimmer.  I used 3 thin coats for these photos

Lumieres is an incredibly unique glitter polish.  If you love blingy polishes like this, but hate the bumps that usually come with it… look no further!  The silver holo glitters are flat and lay completely flat on the nail.  Its amazing.  Mixed in with those dazzling, magical flat glitters is a great purple shimmer.  I used 3 coats for complete opacity.

Triomphe-nt Night

Triomphent Night

Triomphe-nt Night is similar to Lumieres because it has the same dazzling flat holographic glitter… but this time in gold.  These glitters are in a gold jelly base.  Again, 3 coats and because of the thin cut glitters there are no bumps or anything to smooth out

How gorgeous was this set?  From the thermals to the magical glitters, I am just floored.  I would love to tell you some favorites, but the list pretty much includes all of them.  Application was smooth and easy and the effects of each shade were perfect.

Price: $12.00

Same Fall Different Beginning looks incredible! I have never purchased a thermal just due to the shelf life of them but I think I may need to get this one, so pretty!
