A vegan nail polish blog. A celebration of colour and light, as well as of justice for nonhuman animals.

Today I have three more swatches to show you in my project to photograph all my Soulstice Spa polishes.

Soulstice Kiev

Kiev is a burgundy jelly polish with a hint of a brown tone.

This is three coats, since I found I got a little bit of cuticle drag at two coats (maybe I just didn’t wait long enough between coats).

In low light it can look quite dark:

Then I added one generous coat of Hana overtop of Kiev.

Hana is a very sheer iridescent flake polish, so I didn’t bother swatching it on its own.

The tiny flakes reflect all sorts of colours; here over Kiev the overall effect is a mainly blueish shimmer.

Next I have Berlin, a very dark vampy purple that has a semi-jelly formula. It’s dark enough that it often looks almost black.

The formula was very similar to that of Kiev.

I’m actually not sure whether this swatch was two or three coats; apparently I forgot to write it down.

Lastly, here is a comparison between Berlin, Kleancolor Black (one coat), and Kiev to show the relative depth of the colours.
