Two KL Polish posts in one day, but I'm trying to catch up so I'm ready when her newest collection drops in three days. I'll be going through Kathleen's spring 2017 launch in this post — still one of my favorite collections to date.
So this color definitely looks like a true white, but when compared to KL's newest color, Paper Snow, you can tell that it's off-white. Coconut Milk is a great neutral shade without the starkness of being pure white. I see this shade pairing well with any of the other shade from this collection as an accent nail or in a nail design. The only downside to this shade is that I had to use three coats to reach almost full opacity, and there were still some spots I could see my nail.
That's What She Said
I didn't think I would be into this color at first, but it's actually insanely beautiful. I got my nails done at Local Honey in Bushwick and Nima did a great job. She also loved the color, though she wondered why I wasn't doing gel.
The color I was most excited about from the spring launch. Light blue is the one color I will allow myself to wear other than black, white and gray, so it was a no brainer that I picked this color first to try from the spring line. It's the perfect sky blue.
Big heart eyes emoji for Miss Honey. I think this is the perfect pinky-peach shade that really keeps your nails closer to a natural shade. As you can see, I added another polish on top of my ring finger. I used Das Esspensive XXVI, which I talk about more in another post. I used a Sally Hansen top coat with this one and I found that the polish lasted longer on my natural nails and had more of a gel-like look after they dried.
Pistachio Ice Cream
Two words: never again. I think this polish color is just not for me, so I'll probably give this shade away to someone who will actually use it.
Hug & Roll
I felt like this color was supposed to be more of a soft lavender but it definitely pulls more pink on me. As you can see, I still haven't gotten any better at painting my nails, but I'm trying. If you're in the market for a soft color for spring, I'd highly recommend you go pick up Hug & Roll before it sells out.
Summer 2017 is coming to a blog near you shortly.
