Kinetics Black Silk is the second nail polish I decided to wear and review from Kinetics Fall – Winter 2012 Let’s Pink Collection (info & swatches). As a dedicated fan of black nails I enjoyed wearing Black Silk and before that I decided to shorten my nails a little bit because dark polishes look better on me when I have short to medium nail length.

Kinetics Black Silk nail polish (€6.00/ 25.00 Lei for 15 ml/ 0.5 fl oz ) is a true black with silver specks combined in a creamy formula and not a glittery one as I would expect. The formula is creamy but very light, most of the watery side rather than a thick one. The first coat leaves quite a semi-opaque and uneven color. The second coat delivers a deep black color with a super glossy finish making the top coat almost unnecessary unless you want to preserve the color for more than 4 days.
The application went well without pooling but the light almost watery formula delivers an uneven color after the first coat. Because Black Silk is a true black I like to protect my nails by applying a base coat and this time I used Kinetics Nano Rhino Treatment for soft nails (review & swatches). As a top coat I applied on five of my nails my favorite Kinetics Nano Shark Treatment for damaged nails (review & swatches).
I worn the color for about 4 and half days and on the nails with top coat I had minor tip wear and some lines caused by the keyboard I use everyday. On the other nails were I haven’t applied top coat (please excuse the bandage, I’m still recovering after the bad injury I had a few days ago) I had the same minor tip wear and lines but also the color looks a little bit more mattified which is normal if I use soap, creams and lotions.
