Polished by KPT & Serum N°5 Summer Fling Collaboration Shades Review...

While I was out gallivanting around Japan and Taiwan, the ladies of Polished by KPT and Serum N°5 were hard at work collaborating on a fun summer duo. I was so excited to come home to these two beauties waiting for me that they became my first two manicures after a month of nakie nails. These lacquers are part of a Summer Fling collaboration box which also includes a cuticle oil and some nail art accessories.


Do You Wanna Fanta?
A warm sensitive thermal that transitions from orange when cold to a watermelon pink when warm. It is loaded with a gorgeous purple and gold glass fleck shimmer. The transitions occur easily. I wore if for about a day and saw various stages of transition as well as fully cold and warm states occurring naturally during that time. The formula is a bit on the thicker side, but it self levels beautifully and I didn't have any issues getting even coverage. It is opaque in two coats as seen below. It dries to a slight satin finish so I used a top coat for a nice shine.

What a Blast
A glow in the dark, slightly milky base loaded with red, silver and blue glitter in various shapes and sizes. The mix even includes silver stars in two different sizes. I applied one coat plus a topcoat over a white base for my swatches. Each dip of the brush into the bottle brings up loads of gorgeous glitter and lots of star shaped pieces as well. No fishing required! I mostly brushed this glitter on and did a bit of dabbing to get the stars to stay put since they wanted to run away with the brush. Overall though I think this has a perfect glitter mix formula. It is quite topcoat hungry so I suggest two layers of topcoat. By the way, how perfect is this glitter mix for the 4th of July?...



It glows super bright in the dark. I charged it under a regular lamp for about 30 seconds to activate the glow in the dark particles before taking photos...

    1. Isn't it the perfect name for such a beautiful orange. It looks like it is fizzing just like the drink. Thermals and glow in the dark! How can you go wrong? :)
