Hello pretty girls!
I’m gonna start my reviews series of Kinetics Backstage Collection for fall – winter 2010 (preview post + swatches) with one of my favorite colors from this collection.
Blackout nail polish was one of the colors that I fall in love with instantly and I saw many of you like it also. Blackout is a perfect autumn winter color for me because I love wearing dark nails and this one is really dark. From a distance you may think is only a black nail polish but when you get a closer you discover that rich dark plum color with purple undertones.
I’ve notice that sometimes it can reflect a burgundy wine shade with just a little bit of violet undertones. The color is rich, has a creamy texture which glides on easily, giving you a simple and even application.
Because it’s so dark it’s also opaque and 2 coats should be enough to get a glossy rich shade.
Along with Kinetics Backstage collection I’ve also received Kinetics Nano Nail Treatments (preview post + photos) so I’ve already gave Shark Nano Nail Treatment a try.
I’ve applied one layer of Nano Shark Treatment to protect my nails – I really recommend that you should wear a base coat before applying a dark nail polish – then I followed with 2 coats of Blackout nail polish and in the end I finished with another layer of Nano Shark (only on 5 of my nails) because this treatment works also as a top coat. More about Nano Shark Nail Treatment later on when I’ll review it separately.
Kinetics Blackout nail polish – 2 coats – no top coat – natural light
Kinetics Blackout nail polish – 2 coats + one layer of Nano Shark Nail Treatment as a top coat – flash light
I specially took this photo with flash so you can see those burgundy and purple reflections. It has a glossy finish and for me it’s the ideal shade for the fall season. 🙂
Blackout nail polish comes in a 15 ml (0.5 fl oz) bottle but the prices can range from country to country. For my UK and Ireland visitors the price of one bottle of Kinetics nail polish is £ 3.35 and you can order more Kinetics products from MargaritaBelska.com.
Today is the 7th day of wearing Blackout on my nails so you can check out the photos I’ve made a few minutes ago.
Blackout Nail Polish after 7 days
Here are my nails where I’ve also applied one coat of Nano Shark Nail Treatment.
Wearing Blackout polish – 2 coats + Nano Shark Treatment top coat – after 7 days
The color is obviously long lasting and chip resistant and only if you look very close you will notice the polish fading towards the tips.
Blackout nail polish – 2 coats + top coat – 7 days later – close-up photo
The polish is not so glossy like in the first few days and you can notice small lines on the color – marks from my keyboard :).
Now here are my other nails without any help from Nano Shark.
Wearing Blackout nail polish – 2 coats WITHOUT top coat – after 7 days
The color looks the same to me and the only small difference is that here I don’t see any small lines and that’s probably because I haven’t applied a top coat so the polish is thinner and I won’t get those lines. That’s why I don’t like – although it’s a must – to apply base coat , 2-3 layers of nail polish and then finish with a top coat because the heavier and thicker the polish will get on my nails the faster it will chip and slower it will dry.
I hope this review will help you choose one of Kinetics nail polish from Backstage fall – winter 2010 collection.
