Polished by KPT Blood as Thick as Gold

Do you all ever get unispired? That was me this whole last week. There has been a lot of change going on in my life, good change, but it can really zap your energy and leave you feeling less than creative. Between buying a place, starting a new job, directing a kids show, working at Cirque once a week, and training for a half marathon I'm exhausted. Like I was so exhausted, I didn't change my mani for 10 days straight, exhausted. But again, I can't really complain because all these things that are exhausting me are really awesome! 

My uninspired self put on an awesome does all the work polish this week. This is Polished by KPT's Blood as Thick as Gold. How have I never worn this beauty before?  BaTaG is a deep maroon red that transitions into the perfect peachy nude and its filled with the prettiest gold flakes. You can see the transition from cold to warm in my photos below. 





I love how thermal polishes give you a natural gradient. They also cause me to stay in the shower at least an extra five minutes because I'm doing the hot/cold "oh" and "ah."

Enjoy & until next time, Amy Lee

    1. I like the middle the best, it's funny how we all land somewhere different. That's why I love thermals.

  8. Love the swatch. Thermals are one of my favorite kind-of polishes, but the shelf life on them makes me sad. But I am jealous because I have not been able to nab any from Polished by KPT.

  10. I can totally relate to how change (even good change) is exhausting. I'm right there with you. I'm struggling with this today! Plus two broken nails and a rejection email. But this polish made me smile. This is a brand I still haven't tried.

  11. You have been really busy! I think we can all relate. Sometimes nails have to take a back seat. I still have KPT on my list of indies to try. I love the gold flakes in this!
