This is a quick post for Vicky from Boombastic Nails!! Vicky, you mentioned that you were not sure how Illamasqua Kink looks and I omitted taking pictures when I swatched KBShimmer Get Clover It. So here comes Illamasqua Kink:
The above picture is taken indoors, the below photo outdoors in the sun
I applied two smooth coats of Illamasqua Kink over Essence XXL Nail Thickener. Kink was one of three rubber finish polishes that were released in the winter of 2011/2012 as part of the Collection "Theatre of the Nameless". The consistency is on the thin side but very pigmented and easy to apply. The polish has a selflevelling quality and two coats are all there is needed to achieve this opaque look.
If I wear any of the rubber finish polishes during the day, I apply one coat of Orly Matte Top. This Top Coat does not dry really matte like Essie Matte About You but leaves a silky finish, resembling the intended rubber finish. According to my experience the rubber finish polishes from the Theatre of the Nameless Collections don't wear particularly well without Top Coat.
Liesl, I hope this helped :-)
Please do not hesitate if you want to see a particular polish swatched, I will try to accommodate your wishes in reasonable time.
I look forward to reading your comments - thanks for visiting!!!
