Polished by KPT Photoelectric Collection: Swatches and Review

Provided for Review
Hey all! For today, I have an upcoming collection from Polished by KPT to share. These five polishes are part of the Photoelectric Collection which will be released this Saturday, April 16th at 12 pm PST in Polished by KPT's shop

The colors in this set are so flat out gorgeous! They are all jelly based polishes so expect to apply 2-3 coats and if you have a ridge builder polish, I recommend using that as your base. With those glitter and flakes I was expecting a bit more texture to the finish but I didn't see that, for each polish I applied one layer of topcoat, though I could see you needing another applied the next day once the polish settled. I don't have specific info on pricing but I imagine they will be comparative to other holographic polishes from the brand, which are between $10 to $12 each. 

Polished by KPT Metastable
Three coats
Magenta jelly with silver holographic micro-glitter, holographic micro-flakes, and gold shimmer
I think this pink number is my favorite of the set. It's a bolder shade of pink, which you know I love. When you apply, and this goes for all the polishes in the collection, you will want to wait a few minutes between coats to prevent any dragging of the jelly formula.

Polished by KPT No Resistance
Light blue jelly with silver and dark blue holographic micro-glitter plus holographic micro-flakes
An icy blue to cool you down. Okay, that came out weird and suggestive soooo I will go with LOOK AT THE PRETTY BLUE. Three thin coats for opacity.

Polished by KPT Ready For Emission
Three coats
Light purple jelly with silver and gold holographic micro-glitter plus holographic micro-flakes
Such a lovely shade of purple, especially with the gold in there. Application is same as the previous two, three thin coats for coverage.

Polished by KPT Return To Ground State
Two coats
Grass green jelly with silver and gold holographic micro-glitter plus holographic micro-flakes
There is just enough yellow in the green to give this a very fresh spring grass look. This one was actually the most opaque of the collection, I applied just two coats and had a good amount of coverage.

Polished by KPT Shine Light My Way
Four coats
Pink rose-gold jelly with silver and gold holographic micro-glitter plus holographic micro-flakes
Pink and gold is such a classic combination and I like the effect of it here. This was probably the most sheer of the collection though, I applied a three coats and still had some visible nail line, so then applied a fourth thin coat.

Since these are jelly polishes, I thought that a stained glass nail art look would be something to try out. I used all the colors from the collection and added a black stamped design on top to tie everything together.
