I hope you've all had a great week so far.
I am very excited to introduce a really cool and innovative gel company- Kiara Sky.
Fall in love with Kiara Sky® Soak-off Gel Polish, a patent-pending formula that assures long lasting wear, high-gloss shine that resists fading and color changes over time. The only gel polish in the market that can be applied as a three or two-step system. Yes, you heard it right base coat application is completely optional. Finally every woman has a choice! Perfect over natural nails, overlays and pedicures. Cure 30 seconds under LED lamp or 2 minutes under UV lamp. Removes quickly and completely in just 8 minutes without any damage to the natural nail. Available in 101 trendsetting colors and matching nail lacquers. LED and UV light compatible. Size: 15 ml. Made in the USA," according to their website.
In addition to their regular line of gels, they also have a selection of color changing shades. "Introducing Kiara Sky’s mood changing gel polish collection, OMBRE! This glossy and long-lasting temperature active gel polish changes color as your body temperature and mood changes. Have an Enchanted-soft color in warm temperature and a vibrant Wicked shade in cooler temperature. With 33 mood-changing colors, you wont be disappointed with Kiara Sky’s new OMBRE collection."
I've got a few shades from both lines to share with you all.
High Mintenance: a mint apple green creme. [When your spirits are as high as your standards there’s only one way to go…straight to the top. Let this cool mint pastel take you there and make them stare!]
Out on the Town: a fine purple glitter. Requires about three to four coats for complete coverage. Could also be used to make an excellent gradation design. [A night out doesn’t start until you show up…wearing shimmering purple glitter to your fingertips! Let your inner party animal go wild!]
And from their color changing Ombre collection-
Pumpkin Carriage: a bright peach cream. When warm, a flamingo pink. The shimmer in it is incredibly fine and virtually undetectable. [Medium orange transitions to salmon pink from just the warmth of your hands.]
Fairy Dust: a vivid magenta cream. When warm, a hot pink. [Bubblegum pink transitions from dark to light from just the warmth of your hands.]
Sour Apple: a bright turquoise cream. When warm, a light mint. [Regal teal transitions to a minty green from just the warmth of your hands.]
Abracadabra: a bold blue cream. When warm, a darker royal blue. [Glossy purple transitions to peacock blue from just the warmth of your hands.]
(all swatches shown here are 2 coats, unless specifically stated, and are cured for 30 seconds each in an LED lamp.)
I am really impressed with this brand. I really enjoyed working with the product. I found the gel to be highly pigmented, much more so than most gel polish brands on the market.
The fact that a base coat is optional with this brand is totally awesome and a huge time saver. Saved time means you can take more clients on in your salon. More clients means more money. It's a win win.
The color changing effect was really awesome and magical.
If you haven't yet tried out this brand, I highly recommend it.
The gel polishes retail for $13-$15 each per 15 mL (0.5 fl oz) bottle.
