Pop of Color by Kristen Taekman Nail Polish Review and Swatches

Happy #ManiMonday! Today, I have a few summer colors of the Pop of Color by Kristen Taekman Nail Polish line to share with you. "The New York City skyline at night may be just a silhouette, but add those lights and suddenly it tells a story. Pop of Color is that little hint of something that adds everything to your look. Whether you choose to compliment your outfit with something vibrant, or with something subdued, you tell your fashion story entirely with that Pop of Color."

Here is a live video of me swatching all of the polishes. I wanted to do this video so you could see how pigmented and creamy the polishes applied (with one and two coats) as opposed to only showing you the still images.


I'm always a sucker for a good creamy polish and these are insanely pigmented so they are literally a no-brainer for Spring/Summer.

You can order these online at Ricky's NYC for $8 a pop!

Pop of Color by Kristen Taekman Liquid Matte Lipsticks Review and Swatches

"Bright and bold. A comfortable liquid matte lipstick. Vegan and cruelty free." These are the three things that drew me into the Pop of Color by Kristen Taekman Liquid Matte Lipstick line.

Last year, you followed me on Instagram as we visited Ricky's NYC for a special preview of the Kristen Taekman nail polish line so it's no surprise that the launch of these colorful liquid lipsticks would be next on their radar.  IMG_4696 copyColors from left to right: Change of Habit, Reconsider Baby, A Little Less Conversation, Rags to Riches, Kiss Me Quick, It's Now or Never!

Inspired by the greatest city in the world, each Pop of Color liquid lipstick applies a bit glossy and then dries to a rich and velvety finish that leaves your lips with a vibrant lip color that is way too comfortable to really be calling it a matte liquid lipstick. IMG_4878 copy

All of these applied onto my lips with such a breeze. I was able to layer these liquid lipsticks and I had to do so with the brighter neon colors (the bright pink and orange) for true color payoff and coverage. Please keep in mind that the doe foot applicator was a little bit smaller than most brands so I had to dip it back into the tube a few times in order to get enough to cover my lips.

You can buy these in-store at Rickys NYC or online here for $14.99 each.
