Spring Swatch Spectacular: Ruby White Tips Part Two

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.

Today I tried Ruby White Tips The Polish With No Name.  Each bottle comes with a unique number name, so I have the only 'Thirty Two'.  The Polish With No Name is a light blue creme with a very subtle shimmer.



 I feel like the bottle I received has significantly less shimmery pigment that the polish shown in the Etsy listing.  Maybe there was a formula change?  I'm not sure.  It is still a very pretty polish but was not quite what I was expecting.  I may not have purchased it had I know since it is very similar to a polish I already have.


All pictures show two coats of The Polish With No Name with one coat of CND Super Shiney top coat in natural sunlight.  The formula was great and dries somewhere between a matte and satin finish.

Next up is the Kick Ass Topcoat.  In the Etsy listing this top coat is described as containing some spectraflair, black, charcoal and silver holo sparkle along with a mixed color flakes in a clear base.  The bottle picture in the listing looks predominantly silver with larger dark glitter and some holographic flashes, however the bottle that I received clearly had a lot of multicolour glitter (not flakes) in it as well.  The red hex glitter stood out most as something that was different from what I though I was getting.


I added on coat of the Kick Ass Topcoat over the two coats of The Polish With No Name I was already wearing.  It's even clearer now that there are lots of coloured hex glitters in this topcoat which weren't mentioned in the polish description.  The Etsy listing also had a photo showing this topcoat over light blue from Nelly Oliveri but when I compared it to my photos over light blue they look completely different.  The one in the listing portrays lots of fine holographic silver glitter with some larger charcoal glitter, not a rainbow coloured top coat.  The polish bottle contents also look very different in that listing picture as well.  It was that combination of holographic silver and charcoal combination that I was expecting to get.


There are some positives about this topcoat though.  The formula was great and it dried very smoothly which is rare with a glitter polish.  It also dried very quickly.  If the rainbow glitter appeals to you then this is a great topcoat for you to try.  Personally I am not a fan of glitter with many colours included so this isn't a combination that appeals to me too much.


As always, all Ruby White Tips polishes are 3-free, vegan and animal cruelty free.  If you like The Polish With No Name or the Kick Ass Topcoat and want to get a bottle of your own visit Ruby White Tips' Etsy store at https://www.etsy.com/shop/RubyWhiteTips
