Karma's Kiss... a new indie polish coming soon!

Hello again! Things around my house have been a mess! Kids got out of school, we traveled a bit, and now I am home for awhile until next week when we will be of again. I love this time of year and staying busy! usually it is spending time with the kids, but they are now old enough to want to visit and stay with friends and do grown up teenager stuffs. I can't wait for them to be home, it means trips to the lake to go boating and tubing.



Today, I have some new polishes form Karma's Kiss for you. Karma's Kiss will be releasing June 15th, and you won't want to miss these. Today I have the first five of the collection, and tomorrow I will have the other six. This is a photo heavy post so be prepared! Let's get right to it, shall we?

First up we have "Pennies for Your Karma". This is described as "A coppery, medium intensity holo finish, with a look of a metallic shimmer." I have to agree with the description. This look just like the color of pennies! In all honesty, this is not my typical polish color, and I don't think it is the most flattering to my skin tone on most occasions, but I liked this one. It went on smooth and I had great opacity with one coat. This is shown with two coats and no topcoat.

Next up we have "Peach Fizz". This is described as "Textured polish with the added touch of holographic micro glitter for that added sparkle. Can be worn by itself or with a top coat for a smooth finish." The description is accurate and it is GORGEOUS! It is very pretty and it sparkles!!! This is 3 coats tototal opacity and it was a little sheer for me with one coat. These swatches also are topped with HK Girl top coat.

Next up is my favorite holographic polish of the collection. "Merlot to Go..." is described as "Merlot colored, rich with a higher intensity linear and scattered holo." It is beautiful an the description is accurate. The application was very easy and I had no issues with the polish. Since this is sort of my boys' school colors, it will be used all wrestling season!!! I also love the semi orange/coral shift I get in the sun. These swatches are two coats with no topcoat.

The next photos and swatches I have to share with you are "Aqua Vitae". It is describe as "Aqua blue holo polish with a medium holo effect and a tiny touch of that extra shimmer." This is a great shade of blue. It reminds me of tropical waters. The description is accurate and for these swatches I used 2 coats no top coat. The formula was smooth and applied nicely.

Finally for today is "Black magic". It is described as "A sparkly glittery top coat of fine and extra fine black, purple and silver holo glitters in a clear base." This was one of three glitter polishes I was sent. All three were pretty magnificent and versatile. There was great coverage of glitter with one coat. The base to glitter ratio is great. You could wear this polish over just about anything, and you can build it up nicely for a full coverage glitter. This is one coat over Sally Hansen's "Flashy Fuschia".
