I have only a few more shades to review from Kinetics Flower Explosion Spring 2012 Collection (swatches, info, photos & prices) and today I will review Kinetics Mudness nail polish.
Kinetics Mudness (€6.00 / 25.00 Lei for 15 ml / 0.5 fl oz) is a soft muddy brown with grey undertones and a milky-creamy texture which can be worn just fine in one coat because it’s really opaque and the second layer of polish it’s up to you since the color will be the same. Its milky-creamy texture it’s very easy to work with, facilitates the application making it almost perfect by delivering a luscious shiny color. The only downside to its texture, if I can say so, is the drying time which takes quite a lot. You want this polish to be perfectly dry and even so in the next days I saw small lines (if you look closely) on my polish when I typed at my laptop or doing other stuff.
Before applying Kinetics Mudness I used Kinetics Nano Seal Base Coat & Therapy for Brittle Nails (review & swatches) and after I set the color with Kinetics Nano Shark Top Coat & Treatment (review & swatches).

Kinetics Mudness Nail Polish after 5 days wear
I tested this polish like the others from the same collection by wearing top one on 5 of my nails and leaving the other 5 just with two coats of Mudness nail polish. The results are almost the same when it comes to minor tip wear (I had a small incident at one of my nails as you can see) and color opacity which seems to have preserved itself so well but the only small difference is that shiny finish which is more obvious at the nails wearing top coat while on the other nails the color seemed to be more matte.
Now you can notice the little lines on the polish obtained by typing at my laptop even though I spared more than 5 minutes for this polish to dry. Usually nail polishes with milky textures show lines after wearing them for a couple of days.

I hope this review was helpful for everyone who wants to purchase this color. What are your thoughts, do you like this shade?
