Kardashian Beauty I Watercolor & Cabana Glow Swatches

A while ago I got my hands on these 5/6 limited edition Kardashian Beauty (Khroma) PDQ summer Watercolor nail lacquer after I won a massive £900 worth of Khroma cosmetics. Inside were five summery shades Pool - a shimmery turquoise, Stroke - a burnt sunset orange, High Drive - a bright barbie pink, Glide - hot pink and Race - Vibrant Red. Missing is the shade Float which is beautiful pastel mint green. Update; After looking through my collection I found Float turns out it didn't have the watercolor sticker on.

There's a shade here for everyone from cool, light pastels, to warmer vibrant shades. You could definitely hop into Autumn with Stroke and race. All are cremes yet I find pool lack in creaminess and out of the five this was more sheer but buildable for a more creamy, glossy coverage. All six available in the Watercolor collection are free from toluene, formaldehyde, camphor, and DBP. These are more creamy then glossy (unlike Barry M's Gelly Hi-shines) but are still nice enough and leave a pleasant finish. Above are three layers of polish - however you could have less layers depending on the thickness you apply. These swatches are without a top coat too. You can purchase four of the shades at Feel unique here for £8.95 each.

 I also got two of the Cabana Collection in shades Afterglow - a pearly neutral creamy shade and Gold Coast - a shimmer metallic silver with purple/pink tones. I found Afterglow was quite sheer and needed a few more coats then the two that I needed with Gold coast, however afterglow was more creamier then Gold Coast. The Cabana collection are also free of toluene, formaldehyde, camphor, and DBP. And some of the collection can be found at Feel unique also for £8.95 each here.

Both collections claim to be Long wearing, ultra glossy and chip resistant nail colour glides on evenly for a
truly professional looking finish.

What do you think? Have you manage to try either of the collections?


  1. I love all of these colours! A great collection! x
    Check out my MAC giveaway: - ONLY ONE WEEK LEFT

    1. Some really fun vibrant shades!

      Ohhh I'll have a look now x

  2. You have a nice little (huge) ;) collection. I'm glad you started using the make up btw, xoxo.

    1. They soon add up in value. All the nail polish from the Kardashian's are the same price and I think I have about 20ish. Not so much the polish was mainly the make-up I want to use some old stuff before digging into the newer stuff. Then again that may change depending on how board I am lol.

      Thankfully I found Float (the polish I thought was missing from the watercolor collection) it didn't have a watercolor sticker on so that was a little misleading I'll have to do a NOTD using that shade because I love mint green's. xx
