Adorned Nails: KOH Paparazzi Collection


Let's take a closer look at KOH's latest special collection, KOH Paparazzi.

It's a glitter-and-glamour collection. Three are simple but sophisticated while the remaining three are flashy, each meant to be layered over its less flamboyant mate. Here's the collection at a glance:

L-R:
KOH Gossip
KOH Extremely Famous
KOH Snap Shot
KOH Attention
KOH Biggest Fan
KOH Flashing Lights

I'm featuring the three pairs of polishes in this order: lilac, grey and blue. For each of the base colours, you're looking at two coats.


KOH Gossip
KOH Gossip is a lilac with subtle shimmer. It's pretty and subdued.



KOH Extremely Famous
Extremely Famous is an un-shy glitter polish in clear liquid. The mostly-large hexagonal glitters are pink and sapphire blue in colour. Here, it's shown layered over the lilac of Gossip.



KOH Biggest Fan
Biggest Fan is a straightforward dark grey créme.



KOH Flashing Lights
This one is a multi-sized flakey/glitter mix. The particles are rainbow-coloured, depending on how they catch the light. This is Flashing Lights layered over Biggest Fan.



KOH Snap Shot
Black-blue is how I would describe KOH Snap Shot. Like Biggest Fan, it's a glossy plain créme.



KOH Attention
This is my favourite pairing - KOH Attention layered over Snap Shot. Attention has both large and fine blue/purple hexagonal glitters accompanied by small, round green/aqua glitter bits.

Polishes kindly provided by KOH Cosmetics.

You can, of course, change the pairings. The combinations can always be played around with these six polishes.

The KOH Paparazzi collection is out now in stores and in the KOH online shop. Price: €14.99 per bottle.

Adorned Nails: KOH Atmosphere


Okay, here's the final polish from Galaxy and it's my other favourite from the collection.

KOH Atmosphere is pretty much the green counterpart of KOH Stardust. It's a green-gold duochrome shimmer and a two-coater.

At this angle, it looks an ashy brown-green.


Look at it again and Atmosphere becomes a pompous green.


And finally, here it is showing off its lovely combined green-goldness.


The Galaxy collection is now available via the KOH online shop.
