I will open the review series of Kinetics Flower Explosion Spring 2012 Collection (info, nail swatches & photos) with Kinetics Flowery Nail Polish (€6.00 for 15 ml /0.5 oz). The entire collection contains 8 new shades and was launched in U.S. in February 2012 and Internationally in March 2012.
In Romania the new shades are available starting end of March 2012 at dedicated nail salons and will be available online @kiriloff.ro later this month for the price of 25.00 Lei per bottle.
Kinetics Flowery is a pastel lilac with fine blue, turquoise and green shimmery particles. The color looks sheer and uneven after the first coat but even after the second coat it’s still transparent. The colored shimmery particles makes the color come together nicely after the second coat and it also gives it a nice effect of watery colors such as green light blue and pale turquoise. I will recommend adding a top coat for that mirror effect and long lasting color.
I’ve applied Kinetics Flowery nail polish on top of Kinetics Nano Rhino Base Coat & Treatment (review, nail swatches & photos) and sealed the two color coats with Kinetics Nano Shark Top Coat & Emergency Treatment (review, nail swatches & photos). I had some minor problems during the application of the first coat because there were some lines showing that could only fade with the layer of a second coat. The application of the second coat went without streaking, pooling or bubbling. Deciding to apply a top coat is probably the best thing to do if you want a more shiny finish and help those shimmery particles give its best reflexes under the sun.
If you want a nice pastel shade for spring but not completely opaque and with water color reflexes, Kinetics Flowery nail polish just might be the right choice.

Kinetics Flowery Nail Polish after 4 days wear
I worn Kinetics Flowery polish on my nails for 4 days and the results of the nails where I applied top coat were pretty good. I had minor tip wear, no chipping and the color is still shiny and shimmery. Those tiny colored particles are doing a great job in making this color looks its best even after 4 days wear.
On the right hand where I haven’t applied a top coat the results are a little bit different. The color looks more mattified and faded a little bit more towards the ends until the point I had some minor chipping on the my pinkie. 🙂
