Kinetics Smoky Pearl nail polish could not bear a better name to describe its color. This beautiful lacquer is part of Kinetics Winter 2012 Let’s Pink Collection (preview & swatches) and I’ve wear this color only for a day on my nails so there won’t be any before and after photos available in this review.
Now @kineticsnails.com, @kiriloff.ro, @margaritabelska.com and at Exclusive Beauty Line Academy in Bucharest.
Kinetics Smoky Pearl nail polish (€6.00/ 25.00 Lei/ £3.60 for 15 ml/ 0.5 fl oz) is a light smoky gray with green undertones and beautiful pearl shimmer in a creamy formula. The color looks sheer and streaky in one coat but fully opaque, glossy and less streaky in two coats. It has a medium consistency, maybe a little bit on the thinner side and that will explain the streakiness after the first coat. During the application I had no pulling along the edges or bubbling. Those tiny discreet pearly particles give this Smoky Pearl nail polish a glamorous effect but I still decided to add a layer of my favorite Kinetics Nano Shark Treatment (review & swatches).
As I said before I worn Kinetics Smoky Pearl lacquer for only one day so I can’t give you specific details about how this product behaved for one week but what I can tell you is that I usually get one weak of wear with Kinetics’s formulas with minor tip wear and no chipping unless the consistency is very thick. The color is usually still bright and vibrant, doesn’t fade away towards the tips or losses its intensity but sometimes it can look a bit mattified after a few days wear due to soap, lotions and creams that I’m using.
