Kinetics Raspberry Cream is one of the six new nail polishes from Kinetics Ice Cream Collection for Spring 2014 (swatches/ photos). All the shades are inspired by different types of ice creams and like the name suggests today I’ll be reviewing the Raspberry Cream, a bright and joyful color perfect for spring or summer.

Kinetics Raspberry Cream Nail Polish (€6.00/ 25.00 Lei/ £3.60 for 15 ml/ 0.5 fl oz) is bright, vibrant raspberry pink with warm shades of peach and a soft matte effect. The color is really intense and pigmented, looking almost like a matte neon so this is definitely not for those who are color shy.
In one coat it look pigmented enough but definitely not fully opaque and a bit streaky with small empty spots. The second layer of polish delivers an opaque color coverage, even color and a beautiful matte finish. The formula is well balanced but you’ll have to apply it quickly as it dries down quite fast to a matte color. I applied the polish with a bit of streakiness at the first coat but without bubbling or pooling along the edges of the nail.
I also decided to add a thin layer of Kinetics One Matte Top Coat on my left hand nails while as a base coat I used Kinetics Nano Seal Dry & Brittle Nail Treatment (review/ swatches). I wore the color for 4 days before I had to remove it due to the following results.
On my left hand nails where I’ve applied the top coat the color is still intense and well pigmented, a bit more shinier than without a top coat but the polish started to chip at the ends. Looking on my right hand nails where I haven’t applied top coat even though the color still looks beautiful and bright I couldn’t ignore the polish started to chip and was also quite visible.
If you don’t mind applying Kinetics Raspberry Cream nail polish every 3 days I say you should choose this color as it dries very fast (under 2 minutes) and it’s such a perfect shade for this season. If you don’t like the matte finish you can choose to apply a glossy top coat, it’s all up to you.
