Spring Swatch Spectacular: Ruby White Tips Part One

Disclaimer:  These polishes were offered at a reduced price or at no charge to thelazylaquerista.blogspot.com in exchange for published reviews.  All reviews are fair, honest and reflect my personal opinion. 

I wanted to start my review of Ruby White Tips with two polishes that look incredibly similar in the bottle.  When I was browsing the Etsy store I had a lot of difficulty figuring out the differences between Capricorn and B.B. Kiddo so I thought I'd do a side by side comparison to help out all of you potential Ruby White Tips customers.

B.B Kiddo from The Kill Bill Collection is described as a larger grained light purple and hot pink color shifter.  Capricorn is described as a multi-chrome foil fleck polish that shifts from blue to purple to pink.  As you can see the colour looks almost identical in the bottle but the shimmery finish is a little different between the two.


I tried the polishes on their own and with a base colour.  On my pointer and third finger I used three coats of the polishes by themselves.  On my fourth and pinky finger I used one coat of the respective polish over CND Blackjack.  All fingers have a final coat of CND Super Shiney top coat.  The polishes look a lot more different on that they do in the bottle.  Capricorn is a bit more blue and B.B. Kiddo is a bit more purple when they are worn alone.  When worn over a base colour the difference in pigment size really stands out.

My personal favorite is B.B. Kiddo.  It looks amazing over a black base and I think the larger grained colour shifting pigments makes it more unique.  The only think I liked more about Capricorn was that it was opaque after three coats where as B.B. Kiddo was still a little bit sheer.  I think one more coat would take care of that though.  Both had great formulas and were smooth when dry.  If you see a polish that you love and want to get one of your very own you can check out the Ruby White Tips Etsy shop at https://www.etsy.com/shop/RubyWhiteTips.  Don't forget to check out their facebook page to stay up to date with new polishes, sales and giveaways too.
