Esmaltes da Kelly Sesame Street Collection

Press  Sample

Hey there!  2 full weeks and no blogging.  I was at a conference last week that pretty much turned my brain inside out and, since I was away from the lab for a week, this week has been stupidly busy.  But I'm finally back today with swatches of the Sesame Street collection of polishes from Esmaltes da Kelly that are available for all us international folks from Beautometry.  Esmaltes da Kelly always comes up with fun, interesting collections and the most adorable labels in the business.  This collection has a mix of holographic polishes (that are also great for stamping) and glitter polishes.  Let's have a look!

First up, the holographics.  These were all quite opaque at one coat and could been left at that if you're in a rush.  I, however, always swatch 2 coats (plus top coat) just to be sure to cover any nail line.  I'm also showing them stamped over a black and white base.  For all over them the color is more vibrant over white but the holo really sparkles through over black.  The stamping plate used for all the swatching is KN1.  I notice that my photos look quite different than some of the listing's photos but I'm showing them as accurately as possible though there can be differences in computer monitors, etc.

navy blue holographic

cranberry red holographic (not quite a full red)

burnt orange holographic

antique gold holographic
more metallic than other polishes in this collection

Now onto the glitters.  They are full of glitter so most dry with texture and need top coat to smooth them out.  They're very opaque for glitter so most were opaque at 2 coats.

Note: my bottle is very different than listing photo.  I don't know if that's due to batch difference or camera differences.  Mine did photograph more red than real life.

I hope you enjoyed my look at the Sesame Street collection.  I'll have more Esmaltes da Kelly swatches coming up shortly.  A couple of these are currently sold out on the Beautometry website so be sure to sign up for restock notifications for them if you're interested.  And join the Beautometry Facebook group for all the latest restock news.  She posts with pre-orders and timelines frequently so it's an easy way to stay in the loop.
