Parallax Polish - Krypton

     It's Parallax Polish week on Lustrous Lacquer! I have 3 beautiful polishes to share with you and I felt that they all deserved their own post. Plus I thought it would be fun to dedicate an entire week to one brand. It's something I'm thinking about continuing throughout the year and I'd love to hear your thoughts. But before you jump to the comments section let's take a look at the polish.

     First up is Krypton from the Noble Gases Collection.  A collection designed to be glitter toppers with lots of sparkles!
A shiny white glitter polish. While you would expect krypton to be green because of popular culture, it actually is a white gas when electrified. Sir Ramsay won a Nobel prize in Chemistry for his work with krypton.
     Based off of that description I'd say this polish matches the name perfectly. What I thought was a clear base in the bottle turned out to be so much more on the nail. There is golden green shimmer mixed with matter and holographic white glitters!

      I layered 2 coats of Krypton over Sinful Colors Jungle Trail, a grey leaning brown crème polish. Let me tell you if the green shimmer pops this much over grey just imagine it over black!  I couldn't quite capture it in the photos but I saw hints of a purple shift in the shimmer depending on the lighting.


      The application was smooth with no glitter fishing required.  The glitter lays down nice and flat on the nail, and only 1 coat of top coat was needed for a smooth glossy finish. You can see that there are "patches" or small "clumps" of glitter on my nail. That's exactly how it spread during application. I did no placement what so ever. I think it gives it more of a gas like look or at least how I imagine a gas might look under a microscope. See how I tied this polish into the Noble Gas Collection. Sometimes I can be pretty clever. Or I've just had too much caffeine today to compensate for the lack of sleep over the last week. =)

     Overall I think Krypton is a unique polish with lots of character. But it's not a color that I would have picked for myself. I'm really glad that I got to try it., but I don't see myself reaching for it often. However I would like to try it as a base for some nail art, Maybe add a matte top coat and see what that looks like.

     Parallax Polishes can be purchased on Storenvy  for $8 (14 ml). Before you run off to make that purchase you might want to check out the other polishes I will be sharing with you this week. I've got a gorgeous jewel toned holo and a thermal polish all lined up. And be sure to check out Parallax Polish on Facebook for all the latest news. Thanks for stopping by and Happy Polishing!

  26. I think Im going to keep it up throughout the year. One week a month will be focused on a single brand. Maybe I can get through more of my untireds that way.
