Killer Colours' unique selling point is that they are at the cutting edge of fashion trends, releasing only small, curated and limited edition collections of colours inspired by the catwalk - and once they're gone, that's it. My interest was piqued by this because it's not something I've seen done in an overt fashion - beauty brands tend to mirror what's hot, but not as their mission statement. I was sent two polishes to try out - and one was really great. And one was just… not so much.
|Gunmetal. Actually, it looks way more true in the colour than in my swatch! I apologise for the smudges, I'm no manicurist.|
|Twisted Silk. 4 coats and still not opaque for me :(|
All polishes from Killer Colours are free from the Big 3 chemicals - toluene, DPB and formaldehyde and are manufactured in the UK, and the brushes are not too big and easy to use, although the square lid is chunky and a bit awkward to grip. They cost £9 - which I feel is on the pricey side - but the P&P is free, so if you see a colour you like then maybe it might be worth your while grabbing it, because these are limited edition to the biggest degree, and once they're gone, that's it.
All in all, I'm curious to see what Killer Colours have in store for next season and how their plan to keep up with fashion pans out - but it's been an experience of 2 halves for me.
Are chemical-free polishes important to you, or is it all about shade?
* PR samples. Both of these were sent for review, and this is my honest opinion!
