Polished by KPT: October Babies and Bleu Tonic

I have some absolutely gorgeous glitters to review.

First lets talk about their indie creationist.  Polished by KPT is run by Katherine and she is a glitter machine! She's not only limited to glitters she does awesome colors as well.

I got October Babies and Bleu Tonic.

October Babies is the perfect Autumnal glitter for your fingertips.  Just check out this macro of all these glitters swimming in this polish.

I used Revlon Universe as the brown undercoat and spread October Babies over as a glitter top coat.  The formula went on smoothly and the glitter dispersed evenly.

I splashed a little nail art on there with it of course. Here is the completed look.

Here's what Katherine has to say about October Babies:

'All glitters are holographic. Why I chose yellow and the meaning behind it? Yellow symbolizes wisdom. Yellow means joy and happiness. Yellow daffodils are a symbol of unrequited love. Sunday's color is yellow-gold. Like the energy of a bright sunny day, yellow brings clarity and awareness. I added .040 deep orange holo hex represents Fall for the month of October, yellow bar meaning we stand strong and tall and nothing can bring us down, and silver holo glitters as it shines our ways. I wish all the October babies have a magnificent birthday!'

This polish is currently ON SALE on her site for $6.  Super affordable especially for an indie polish that is limited edition!  You can find it here.  Get it before it's gone!

Next up is Bleu Tonic.  Not only is this polish blue but it's violet, pink, green and even slightly yellow!  The glitters are color shifting so you never know what you're going to get.  Just check out this macro to see what I mean.

For this mani I wanted to show the difference of this glitter over different colors so I did a black, silver and white chevron mani using China Glaze Liquid Leather, Essie No Place Like Chrome and Essie Blanc.  

I love how the blue and green really shows up against the black but the yellow and pink come through on the white.  

Here's what Katherine has to say about Bleu Tonic:

'This remarkable .008 ultra fine glitter appears clear in the bottle but once mixed or top over other color giving you a spectacular sparkling color shifting hues behind. What makes this polish special is the shifted glitter from green to blue then purple. It has almost a mystical quality as their color shift catches your eye and sparkles in the light that moves across them... you just can't quite see where all that magic is coming from. This polish is best use over black polish or blue and apply one to two thinly coats and top with a high quality topcoat.'

Bleu Tonic is currently available on sale for $10 from her store and you can find it here.  This polish was gorgeous and easy to apply.  It has the perfect icy winter effect for all your cold weather manis!

What I love about the Polished by KPT polishes is all the love put into these polishes!  Polished by KPT is 3 free and cruelty free.  Each bottle is hand mixed and made!  I love supporting indie brands so make sure to stop by her shop and check out all her amazing polishes.  

This polish was sent for review and is based on my individual, honest opinion!
