KL Polish Review – For Perfect At-Home Nails

kl polish

I started watching Kathleen Lights videos on YouTube last year. Her videos are so great. I love how she does her own thing and doesn’t try to do what everyone else is doing. If you haven’t checked out her channel, I recommend you do! In 2017, she launched her own brand of nail polishes. She has done makeup collaborations with other makeup brands, but this nail polish brand is all hers. I first tried them towards the end of last year, and I have been obsessed ever since. I have recommended them to everyone. Keep reading if you want to know why I love KL Polish so much!

KL Polish

KL Polish is cruelty-free, vegan, 5-free, and made in the U.S.A. The nail polishes are 5-free which means they don’t contain the following ingredients: formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, camphor, dibutyl phthalate, and toluene. The FAQs section on their website is not very clear. They say all nail polishes are 5-free, but then they also say all nail polishes are 7-free and 9-free.

Shade Range

Most KL polishes are permanent. I believe only Kathleen’s birthday nail polish is limited edition. The only issue with this is that a lot of the nail polishes are constantly out of stock. They’ve explained this on their Instagram before, but for some reason, it is hard for them to have them in stock all the time. There will be a BIG restock in March/April so make sure you pay attention to their social media! Instagram and Twitter are where they make the big announcements.

There is usually a big release for each of the seasons. Then there are a couple of odd nail polishes released individually. I think there is a little bit of everything for everyone.There’s everything from your standard reds to more out-there shades like neon pink and a glittery blue. I do think the collections align with the season in which they’re released.

Lips + Tips Collection

The ones that caught my attention and my first purchase were part of the Lips + Tips collection. Because of Kathleen’s partnership with Colourpop, she decided to release nail polishes that matched her Colourpop lipsticks. The collection includes,

The only shade of this collection I do not own is Taurus. Taurus is a mid-tone yellow-brown and I am just not attracted to it. I couldn’t see myself wearing it. The other shades are all very nude-y. They look beautiful on, and I think they look extremely flattering on everyone. On the KL Polish website, you can actually see the polishes on three different skin tones. From this collection, my favorites are Point Zero and Lumiere. I love the Lumiere Lippie Stix and love wearing them together.

Black & White

I am a huge fan of white nail polish and KL Polish released their shade of white during Christmas. They had an off-white shade called Coconut Milk, but I wanted an opaque white. Along with Paper Snow, they released Tuxedo Mask, a black nail polish. I used to be really into black nail polish when I was younger, and what better time to go back to it than a KL Polish release. I love these! They are good to go with two layers and they look beautiful.

My favorite thing about KL Polish is the brush. At first, I thought it was too big and it was going to make the application a lot harder. It has turned out to be the complete opposite. The brush makes it so easy to cover your nail. It thins out at the edges, so it gets in really well to the sides of your nail without staining your finger.

If you do your nails at home, I definitely recommend you check these out! I have tried a lot of nail polish brands, and none has been as easy as this one. I love the quality of the nail polishes, how well they last, and how good they look. If you’re in the market for a new nail polish, keep an eye out on the KL Polish website for their big restock in March/April. There are still a lot of shades available. Let me know how you make your manicure experience at home easier! I’d love to know any tips you have.

  • New #dermae goodies! And #texturetuesday if you swipe left ⬅️ I have been loving trying out new skincare, especially moisturizers and anything hydrating. I got sent two @dermae products, both with anti-aging qualities. How do you feel about anti-aging skincare?
🍃 The Advanced Peptide and Collagen Moisturizer helps soften and smooth the appearance of wrinkles. Also, includes antioxidants to help support healthy collagen. Even if you are young and don’t have visible wrinkles, it is super important to be preventive! I haven’t used this one yet, but it felt really nice on my hand and I can’t wait to use it.
🍃Also received the Firming DMAE Eye aloft. This cream lifts, firms, and tightens the delicate eye area. It has #hyaluronicacid which infuses a surge of cooling eye moisture. I have used this a couple of times and really like the way it feels. While it isn’t super heavy, it does feel really hydrating.
Thank you so much #dermaesocial 🙏🏼
Productos nuevos para probar de @dermae! Su hidratante que ayuda a suavizar y disminuir la apariencia de arrugas. Nunca es muy temprano para empezar a prevenir. Y el segundo producto es su crema para la ojos que hidrata, afirma, y levanta la delicada área de los ojos. El #contornodeojos ya lo he usado un par de veces y me ha gustado mucho lo hidrata que hace ver las ojeras.
  • It’s a new week and I am still dealing with my cold 🤦🏻‍♀️Maybe I’ll be cured before the end of the year 🤞🏼What is one thing makeup/skincare related that you struggle with? Something you can’t make look right. For example, for me it is concealer. I have tried so many different things (still testing some), but this is the one area of my face that looks the worst at end of the day. I also feel like it’s a very important one as I want to make sure I get those under eye circles covered, but don’t want it to look cakey. Let’s help each other out! Give me your concealer tips and I’ll try to help you! 👇🏼
Una nueva semana y yo todavía con gripa 🤦🏻‍♀️A lo mejor para el fin de año ya estoy mejor 🤞🏼Cuál es un paso en su rutina de maquillaje/cuidado de la piel con la que tienen dificultades? Que no logran que se vea bien? Por ejemplo, para mi es el corrector para tapar las ojeras. Siempre me parece que es lo peor que se ve al final del día. Quiero asegurarme de que estoy tapando las ojeras pero no quiero que el area se vea pesada. Denme sus tips y ayudémonos! 👇🏼

  • Happy #Sunday! A little #throwback to the end of the summer when I had a fresh tan (that has now faded) and was playing with the @hourglasscosmetics #scatteredlight shadow in Smoke. Only used some bronzer and the #hourglass shadow to add a little something. Love how easy these were to use. I had no trouble with fallout throughout the day or longevity.
I hope you all had a very relaxing weekend ♥️
Feliz Domingo! Esto fue al final del verano cuando todavía estaba bronceadita y estrenaba la sombra de @hourglasscosmetics en el tono Smoke. Son súper fáciles de usar! Yo no tuve ningún problema durante el día, al final se veía igual que apenas la apliqué.
Espero todos hayan tenido un buen fin de semana ♥️
  • Happy Friday! I hope you’re on your way to a lovely, relaxing weekend. Any plans? I will be doing homework and playing with some makeup. These are all products I have been using for a while now and love. Still obsessed with the @thrivecausemetics eyeshadow palette. The quality is amazing and you really don’t need anything more. Can’t go wrong with the @marcbeauty bronzer. It has to be one of my all-time favorites. @maybelline has some of the BEST mascaras and the @beccacosmetics highlighters are the most beautiful.
Feliz Viernes! Espero se estén preparando para un fin de semana súper relajado. Estos son todos productos que he usado ya un tiempo y todos me encantan. Les súper recomiendo las sombras de #thrivecausemetics. La verdad que no se necesita más. Los polvos bronceadores de #marcbeauty son de los mejores que he usado.
  • #SaturdaySkinGiftedMe What’s the last skincare you tried? A little skincare, a little newness. The @farmacybeauty Green Clean is my favorite way to take off my makeup. I then use the @freshbeauty Soy Face Cleanser.  their Peel Gel - and I really liked how gentle it was. My skin was not red afterwards and it is just a very satisfying feeling. I would only do this maybe once every couple of weeks but it is a nice complement to my routine.
NEW - the @fur_you Silk Scrub (gifted). This is a gentle exfoliant to be used 2-3 times a week on your body. It can also be used as a mask, but I see myself using it after I shave. I’ve only tried it on my hand so far and I was very impressed by how gentle it was. It didn’t feel scratchy. And I LOVE the packaging. It is so practical and hygienic.
Productos para la piel! Para quitarme el maquillaje uso #GreenClean de @farmacybeauty seguido por el #soyfacecleanser de #freshbeauty. Una nueva adición es el exfoliante de #furyou para el cuerpo. Ya lea contaré qué tal!
@sephora @saturday_skin #sephora #saturdayskin #OctolyFamily
  • Sharing an #motd today! If you’re not familiar with @colourpopcosmetics, they have amazing quality eyeshadows and so many eyeshadow palettes to choose from. They also always have sales going on and just amazing quality. Other great #drugstorebeauty products include the @physiciansformula #butterbronzer and #butterhighlighter. The bronzer is so good and they released new shades this year. The @lorealmakeup lumi glotion is amazing if you like the glowy makeup look. It is a dupe for the #charlottetilbury Hollywood flawless filter.
What are your favorite drugstore makeup products?
Si no han escuchado de #colourpopcosmetics, esta marca es súper económica pero la calidad es súper buena y vale la pena. Además tienen una gran seleccion de productos. Otros productos de farmacia que son súper buenos, los polvos bronceadores de #physiciansformula.
