Kinetics Pink Twice Nail Polish (€6.00 / 25.00 Lei for 15 ml / 0.5 fl oz) is part of Kinetics Flower Explosion Spring 2012 Collection (nail swatches, info & photos) launched in February 2012 in U.S. and Internationally in March 2012. This collection features 8 new nail colors with different textures.
Kinetics Pink Twice is a gorgeous baby pink with blue, green, silver and turquoise micro-glitter particles. Depending how the light hits the polish reflects a beautiful pale pink with aquatic reflections. Kinetics Pink Twice is similar with Essie Pink a Boo nail polish (review, nail swatches & photos) but has a better coverage, texture and the application is a lot easier.
Before applied the first coat I used Kinetics Nano Seal Base Coat & Therapy for Brittle Nails (review, nail swatches & photos). Pink Twice is quite transparent in one coat but if you want a sheer pink color you can wear it like this and let the glitter particles work its magic. I had applied a second coat and the color became even more beautiful and opaque but not 100% opaque since it’s a pale pink. After the application of Kinetics Nano Shark Top Coat & Treatment (review, nail swatches & photos) the polish has this mirror effect, it’s very luscious and make those glitter particles pop even more.
The application was flawlessly without pooling, bubbling or streaking unlike the Essie Pink a Boo polish which left many lines behind making it very hard to get an even color. It has a great formula not to thick since it doesn’t leave a creamy finish, but not to watery either, I would say just the perfect combination to work with.

Kinetics Pink Twice Nail Polish after 5 days wear
You know me, always in love with pinks so this color was a real pleasure to wear. After 5 days you can notice minor tip wear, but the color is still beautiful and the shimmery colorful particles have done a great job. Even though the color tends to mattify (water, lotions and soap will do that) a little bit it won’t be that obvious because the shimmery particles are shining bright giving the polish nice watery color reflexes. On the nails were I haven’t applied top coat the color looks more matte and the ends are showing a little bit more, you can also see a minor chip on my pinkie. 🙂
Removing this nail polish was quite a struggle, it takes time a patience to clean off that glitter which seems to be sticking very well to the nail. A nail polish remover with acetone will be recommended if you want to remove this color faster. Other nail polish removers were quite a pain and didn’t remove the color completely, that glitter was too much for them to handle. 🙂
