Polished by KPT - Kelvin Bleu and Hot Like Wasabi (thermal polishes)

The wonderful Katherine from Polished by KPT recently sent me some of her polishes to try. If you visit her shop, you'll see an extensive line of bright and dark thermals, funky glitters and toppers as well as holo and neon/ glow polishes.

Today I'm showing you two thermals - Kelvin Bleu and Hot Like Wasabi. All Polished by KPT polishes are 3 free (no toluene, no formaldehyde, dibutyl phthalate) and cruelty free.

Kelvin Bleu is a medium periwinkle blue when "cold". Capturing the transition in this one was easier than the others. My hands were really hot when I applied it, thus the very pale shade of blue...
...but as soon as I dipped my hands in ice cold water, the blue transition became much more evident and darker. In the winter it would permanently look like this as my hands are always cold.

The transition for "Hot Like Wasabi" was much more difficult to capture. Maybe it was because I swatched these when the weather was really, really hot here and by the time I removed my hands from cold water, they were instantly hot again.

Hot Like Wasabi is is a yellow/ green scattered holo thermal polish. I didn't layer this one over white which I think would have made it slightly paler. The first picture is what it would look like "hot" and I just about managed to capture the tips transitioning to a brighter green in the second picture.

You can purchase Polished by KPT directly from their website, (US & Canada shipping) but they are now also available at Shoppe Eclectic and Harlow & Co.

  1. Oh my gorgeous!!! Thermal polishes a so freaking cool! And these two shades are stunning! I really love how the transitions give your nails a gradient effect with the different temperatures. Beautiful nails! :)

    1. Thank you so much! And yes, Thermal polishes are good to do that gradient effect without the mess and clean-up!

  2. Hot Lika Wasabi is a really interesting shade, love it!

    1. Yep, it's one of those "love it or hate it shades"! I wish it wasn't so hot when I took these pictures so I could show the transition much better!

  3. Hey,
    the colors look so lovely!!!

  4. I've never tried any thermal polishes, might give it a go after seeing this :)
