Kinetics Street Gang nail polish is one of my favorite colors from Kinetics Urban Legend Collection Fall Winter 2013 (swatches & photos) which I received a few weeks ago. Even though I’m usually not into blue shades I can say I truly enjoyed wearing this one.

Kinetics Street Gang Nail Polish (€6.00/ 25.00 Lei/ £3.60 for 15 ml/ 0.5 fl oz) is a very dark grey blue with cool grey undertones. It had an extreme shine when it dried down and it was fully opaque after two coats. The consistency was on the thinner side, like a light creme that glided beautifully, evenly and easily on my nails. A third coat is not at all necessary since you get that deep, totally opaque color coverage after two coats.
I prefer wearing dark shades on my nails during Autumn and Winter and Street Gang was the perfect choice. The application was flawless without streaking, bubbling or pooling. The brush picks up quite a lot of product, enough to layer two nails at once without dipping the brush in the bottle. For a plus of shine and to seal out this beautiful lacquer I applied one coat of Kinetics Nano Shark Treatment (review & swatches) only on the right hand nails so I can compare the results with my left hand nails which were left with only two layers of Street Gang. As a base coat I used Kinetics Nano Seal Treatment (review & swatches).
As you may know Kinetics’ formula wears great on me as shown by the photos bellow. After 5 days wear I had visible tip wear which I find normal (I admit I did some cleaning around the house that day) but I loved how this color kept its shine and intensity.
