Kiara Sky Mirror Image Collection
Kiara Sky recently launched a new collection called Mirror Image that is comprised of 14 new colors! I have 7 of the colors to share with you today. Kiara Sky is a 2-step gel polish (base coat is optional), and each color has a matching nail lacquer shade. Read my previous review of Kiara Sky that included a wear test here.
These polishes are all available for purchase at the Kiara Sky website or through their distributors. The gel polishes retail for $12.99, and the lacquers retail for $8.99. Below is a photo of all 14 new shades in the Mirror Image Collection (click to view larger), and the lovely cardboard displays. I have this display on my nail station right now and I love looking at it.
Heartfelt is a gorgeous bright pink cream. This shade, as well as the other cream shades all needed three coats for best coverage. They looked a little splotchy to me with just two coats. When compared with my other pinks, this is a pretty unique shade. It’s most similar to a LeChat shade that I just wrote about recently called Peony Passion, except this is a cream and Peony is a shimmer and is just slightly darker.
Romantic Coral is a peachy coral cream. My photos for this color turned out a little pixelated. This shade is very close to several others in my collection including ibd Galavant, Gelish I’m Brighter Than You and Gelaze Flip Flop Fantasy. It’s a tad bit darker and less neon than the shades I just mentioned.
The Real Teal is a light teal cream. I own a lot of teals, and this one has a greyer tone than most. It’s closest to Trugel Magic & Mischief.
Pinking of Sparkle is one of Kiara Sky’s signature matte glitter polishes. It has a clear base and is loaded with light pink glitter in two different sizes, and it also has some holographic glitters sprinkled throughout. This swatch is two coats with no color underneath.
Sweet Plum is a very similar glitter polish, but in a very pale purple shade. I just pulled out my swatch stick to confirm that the color of the glitter looks almost white, but it does have subtle purple tones.
Iceberg is a sparkly holographic glitter polish with a sheer milky base. This one had a strange texture that reminded me a little of Gelish Rough Around the Edges, but the Kiara Sky polish has much better glitter coverage. I didn’t care much for the texture/consistency of this polish personally. It applied thick in some spots and didn’t feel completely smooth after top coating. This swatch is two coats.
