Temptalia Review

KBShimmer The Grape Beyond Nail Lacquer ($8.75 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “matte purple polish … with very subtle turquoise shimmer.” The shimmer is only supposed to be noticeable in the light and when used with a top coat, otherwise, it is medium-dark purple with a matte finish and subtle reddish-plum tones. There is a fine dusting of teal micro-shimmer that definitely comes out to play more so with a glossy top coat on top. I didn’t realize it when I was swatching these two, but it was actually designed to work specifically with Would Jubilee It?, which is a glitter top coat. What’s nice about a matte finish is you can always add a top coat to change it up. The first coat was slightly streaky, and the second coat was better, though there was some slight visible nail line even after two coats. If you have noticeable ridges (like me), you might want to add a ridge-filling base coat prior. Illamasqua Faux Pas is a bit darker and has a rubber finish. Zoya Mira is less muted, has a shinier finish. See comparison swatches.
