Hey everyone. It is with complete and total sadness that I write this post. My favourite nail polish brand, KL Polish will be closing its business. This news was announced Feb 6 2019, by KathleenLights on her Youtube channel. You can watch the video for yourself here.
Although Kathleen has not been able to give us any details yet as to why, a lot of us had become concerned recently that this was the direction things were heading in. Constant sales, no birthday polish release, international shipping never coming back, etc. And it appears the rumours are true.
KL Polish has been my favourite formula since I first tried it after purchasing the 70’s Vibes Fall 2017 collection. Since then I have purchased every collection, until international shipping was discontinued, although I did manage to get my hands on the Fall 2018 collection. The polishes are fast drying, VERY chip-resistant, have a great brush, and overall the curated collections are unique and beautiful. I am so so sad to lose this awesome formula.
So far, we have not been given a date as to when the company will be shutting down, but if you are in the US and are wanting to stock up before it does, you should get on it sooner rather than later. So here are some of my favourites, which may help inform your shopping decisions!
Matanzas is hands down the most beautiful blue polish I own. It is a metallic ocean blue that has such a beautiful shimmer to it.
1435 is a very unique muted navy blue. I love this colour glossy, but absolutely love it matte!
Ocean Drive is a stunning blue green metallic that has a ton of dimension. It looks different in different lighting, more blue in some, more green in others. But it is drool-worthy regardless.
Mojito is a really stunning emerald green creme that is actually quite unique. There aren’t a ton of greens out there, and this is one of my personal favourites.
Chloe is also a unique green, but this time an army or khaki green! I absolutely love this shade during Fall.

I’ve decided it’s Fall, so time for glam army green nails!🍃🍂🍁 @klpolish Chloe and Casino Night * * * #beautycommunity #beautyblog #bbloggersca #canadianblogger #instabeauty #instablogger #beautygram #instapic #instabeauty #igbeauty #slave2beauty #blogger #canadianbeauty #supernovabeautyblog #nails #nailsofinstagram #nailsonfleek #nails💅 #nailedit #spring #summernails #nailstagram #klpolish #manimonday #fallnails #fallmani #fallmanicure
Oh look, another unique green! Medusa is a really special green to gold duochrome that looks quite different depending on the lighting. Regardless, the metallic-ness of it is incredible!
Ace is hands down the best true, bright red out there. It is my go-to whenever a red creme is called for in a mani! I’m sorry I don’t have an example of it glossy!
South Peach is the loveliest light peach shade and is so perfect for Spring! I am looking forward to wearing it a ton this next season!

Day 7 of #springintosummer2018 :#manimonday Spring Mani 💐🍑 * I recently purchased the @klpolish Polish in the shade “South Peach”. Isn’t this the prettiest shade for spring and summer!? * * * #beautycommunity #beautyblog #blog #bblogger #bbloggersca #canadianblogger #instabeauty #instablogger #beautygram #instapic #instamakeup #instabeauty #igbeauty #makeuplove #blogger #canadianbeauty #supernovabeautyblog #makeupslaves #makeupporn #photochallenge #makeupchallenge #beautychallenge #beautychallengemay #mayphotochallenge #nails #nailsofinstagram #nailsonfleek #nailstagram
Charmed is a very cool lavender with a strong blue shift. It is more on the sheer side so you may prefer it with another shade underneath. In this picture I have Dream Boy as a base, with Charmed on top.
Unfortunately I don’t have a full manicure with Casino Night to show you, but I have very often used it as a feature nail. This is the best kind of gold sparkly polish. It has a variety of holographic glitters in it, making it shine from every angle. You can also see it in the Chloe picture I have above too.
Well, I think those are most of my favourite KL Polishes. There are certainly more, as I pretty much love every single shade I own. To see more swatches from some of their full collections or other shades, you can check out my other posts. As you can see, I have featured KL Polish a lot on my Instagram and blog. That is a true testament to how much I love these polishes.
