Adorned Nails: KOH Breathe Deeply

KOH Breathe Deeply is the first colour I'm featuring from the KOH Balance collection, KOH's set of winter colours for 2011.

In the bottle, there is a certain faint pearlescence but that can hardly be seen when applied. Just like many of the KOH polishes I've tried, Breathe Deeply has a thick formula. I had some application issues with this one as it was streaky. I have two coats on here and I think you can notice the streaks in the photos. I suspect it has something to do with the brush, which is strange. I don't recall ever having any such problems with KOH brushes. Or, perhaps I got the odd defective bottle.

Still, it's worth mentioning that Breathe Deeply is more than just a white. I would describe it as a white with a tinge of grey/taupe. The nuances of taupe add some warmth to what would otherwise be a stark white.

This polish was kindly provided by KOH Cosmetics.

Hi! It's been a while since I last visited your blog and comment :D Hope you've been well ;)

This colour is so pretty, it's almost nude IMO, but too bad about the streakiness, it's very visible..

Thanks, Appu! :)

And easy on the eye. :)

Something for the wishlist, eh? :)

It would work great as a base for stamping. :)

Hi, Dina! I'm fine, thanks. It's lovely to see you here. I hope all is well with you. :D

White is always more beautiful on ones nails. In the bottle it is simply white, but out of the bottle it's a different story. It looks great on you, take care Nicole x

Aparte "witte" kleur. Mooi hoor! :D

Thanks, Nicole. I agree! Most white polishes we see tend to look, well, plain white in the bottle. The nuances can be better seen only upon application. I wore this for a couple of days in order to get a good 'feel' of this shade of white. :)

Hoi Nikki! Het is zeker geen wit wit, zoals ik eerder had verwacht. Groetjes! :D

Very unique. White can be very pretty in the winter.....picture ice and snow! You can also spice it up with stamping. ;)

Love your first pic. "KTee"xx

Thank you, KTee! You know, I had thought of doing some stamping on this but I couldn't, unfortunately, due to time constraints. :( I must give it a shot later, or perhaps as a stamping polish. :D
