Spring Swatch Spectacular: Ruby White Tips Part One

Disclaimer:  These polishes were offered at a reduced price or at no charge to 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  Don't forget to check out their facebook page to stay up to date with new polishes, sales and giveaways too.
