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.

What’s your favorite brand of nail polish?

  • I don’t think there has ever been a brand I obsessed over as much as I have for @lilahbeauty 😍 This is the most beautiful packaging and presentation I had ever seen. It is a pricey brand, but when you receive the box, open it, and see the little pebble, every penny is worth it. I picked up the Divine Duo Lip & Cheek in b.true, the prettiest #mauve and I am so glad I did. I am still trying it out but there’s no doubt the formula is just as beautiful as the packaging.
What’s one brand you’ve been dreaming about trying for a while?
No creo que haya otra marca más linda que #lilahbeauty 😍 La presentación y el empaque del producto es hermoso, y hace que todo valga la pena. Esta vez compre el dúo para mejillas y labios, sirve como rubor y labial, en el tono b.true. Aún sigo ensayándolo pero no hay duda de que la fórmula del producto es igual de perfecta que el empaque.
Cuál es una marca que han querido probar?

  • @thrivecausemetics is killing it with these amazing releases and I am so happy to be a part of it. This is the NEW Focus Eyeshadow Palette No. 3. The perfect beginner palette in my opinion and the perfect palette for an everyday look. I love how it has everything you need and these are literally the shades I reach for in every palette I own. Can’t wait to start playing with it and letting y’all know my thoughts. Thank you again to #thrivecausemetics and @karissabodnar ♥️
Did you know #Thrive donates one product for every product sold? Have you tried this brand yet?
La nueva #paletadesombras de @thrivecausemetics está AQUÍ! Y es perfecta para el día a día. Tiene los tonos perfectos para crear una variedad de looks - estos son los tonos que uso en todas las paletas que tengo y me hace feliz tenerlos todos juntos en una paletita. Si no han escuchado de esta marca, se las recomiendo! Tiene un mensaje y una misión muy linda.
  • Are you lazy? Do you forget everything? Do you only shave exposed leg during the winter? Then you’re just like me and need to check out @sphynx - an all-in-one portable, TSA friendly razor. It comes with a spray, a shave bar, and two razors. They’re all refillable which was my main concern when I received it, but it is so effective. I am not sure if I’d find it practical for a full shave, just because it is really bulky, but if it’s the winter and you missed a spot of exposed leg, this is such a good solution! Thank you to the @yccagency for the opportunity to test it out ♥️
Les mata la pereza? Se les olvida todo? Solo se rasuran lo que queda expuesto de la pierna durante el invierno? Entonces son como yo! Tuve la oportunidad de probar #sphynx que es un todo en uno. Viene con un spray, un bálsamo para afeitarse, y dos cuchillas - todo lo que necesitan para afeitarse cuando están de afán o se les ha olvidado. Ademas lo pueden traer con ustedes en el avión ✈️. No se si lo usaría para una rasurada completa por lo que el empaque es tan grande, pero una gran opción para cuando se les olvida algo!
  • [#flowerbeautygiftedme #soldejaneirogiftedme] New products I am trying and testing - See any favorites?
-> the new @thrivecausemetics Focus Eyeshadow Palette No. 3 is quickly becoming a favorite but I’ve yet to use all the shades.
-> @flowerbeauty Blush Bomb Color Drops in Cinammon. This could be a dupe of the @glossier cloud paints. I really like this shade but I am still making up my mind
-> @soldejaneiro Açaí Body Cream. I’ve already said I really like this. I just noticed it does have a shimmer to it, which I hadn’t noticed before. I don’t mind, but wanted to mention it
-> @lilahbeauty Divine Duo Lip & Cheek in b.true. FINALLY getting to try some #lilahb - the brand with the prettiest packaging
-> @dailyconcepts Jade Roller was so kindly sent to me and I have no idea about the benefits but it feels really nice
Productos nuevos que he estado ensayando! Las nuevas sombras de #thrivecausemetics hasta ahora me han encantando. Se ven súper lindas y son fáciles de usar. La crema para el cuerpo de #soldejaneiro como ya les había mencionado me gusta mucho, pero me he dado cuenta que me da a la piel como un brillito entonces lo quería mencionar. Otros que todavía estoy viendo qué tal me parecen! Ven algún favorito?

  • Two new products to try from @dermae and I am so excited! One - the Anti-Wrinkle cleanser which smells amazing. I’ve used it already and so far I really like it. And the Sun Defense Oil-Free Sunscreen. I don’t think it is the type of product I’d use under makeup, but it feels really nice and doesn’t have a strong SPF scent which is usually the case. Have you tried either of these? Thank you to @dermae for gifting these to me!
Dos productos para ensayar de #dermae! Uno es un limpiador fácil que ayuda a prevenir arrugas. Huele súper rico y hasta ahora me ha gustado mucho. El segundo producto es un protector solar. No se qué tal se vea debajo de maquillaje, pero me gusta mucho la textura y que además no tiene un olor muy fuerte a protector. Han usado alguno de estos?
