Swatches and review: Kitty Got Claws

Hi everyone!

Today, I have a new-to-me brand to share with you all. Kitty Got Claws is an Australian brand established by Deana Sarwari, who says:

"Our nail polishes are quick drying, chip resistant, non yellowing, high gloss finish, UV protected, easy to apply, suitable for vegans."

That's a rather huge claim, so let's see if the nail polishes live up to the description!

First up is Bridal waltz, a beautiful light taupe fit for any occasion. I'm a huge fan of neutral looking nails at the moment so this one is a welcome addition to my stash. Bridal waltz has an easy formula to work with, meaning flawless application. I reached opacity in two coats.

Day dreamer is a bright mint crème which is just so fitting for the Spring and Summer months here in Australia! I found it a little harder to work with this polish, but was able to apply two thicker coats. A top coat helped even out the finish.

Meow was the problem child of the three nail polishes I tried. I found the formula hard to work with and it was still a little streaky even after three coats. Top coat definitely helped even out the overall finish though. Meow has a lovely silver shimmer which is unfortunately more apparent in the bottle than on the nail and in photos.



For the three polishes, I sealed it all in with Kitty Got Claws Instant Crystal Top Coat. It's not a fast drying top coat and not the shiniest one I own, but it does a decent job at evening out the nail polishes. I've also used it over an OPI nail polish, but found the wear time average, with tip wear apparent by day two. Despite the quick tip wear though, there was no chipping in the three days I had the manicure before changing it up.

In terms of aesthetics, I am a huge fan of the bottle shape and it's similar to the Picture Polish one except with a glossy bottle lid. It's compact and very easy to store - I just wish all nail polish bottles were this easy to sort and put away! The minimalistic appearance of the bottle helps draw attention straight to the shade and the nail polish name and ingredients can be found on the bottom of the bottle.

Kitty Got Claws retails for $23 and the top coat for $25 at bottle. You can purchase the nail polishes at the website. For international ladies, check out the international tab.

What do you think of these nail polishes? Are you eyeing any and putting them onto your wishlist?

Thanks for reading.
