Hello lovely readers! Today I have the newest collection to release from Crystal Knockout! There are super reactive tri-thermals that even have lovely in between transition colors to be seen! Be sure to check out my swatch video (linked below) to see them in action! Let’s get to some swatches!
Spirit Revival is a light blue to medium purple to dark purple tri-thermal with purple/pink shimmer, purple/blue iridescent micro glitter, green iridescent flakes, and platinum silver flakes.
Swatches show two coats with glossy topcoat. Formula has a lovely feel and builds up very quickly. This dries down a bit on the semi-matte side so I’d recommend a glossy topcoat to bring all that shimmer and flakes out to play. I almost feel like this one is a quad thermal, if you peek at that second full hand shot.
Light Shine is a light to medium to dark green tri-thermal with copper shimmer, iridescent red shimmer, light gold micro flakies, and purple iridescent micro glitter.
Swatches show two coats with glossy topcoat. Formula feels crelly like and builds up very quickly to opacity. Again, I’d recommend a glossy topcoat as this one dries down semi-matte as well. The warm state is being a bit shy here, it’s a very limey green compared to what you’re seeing on my nail beds (the middle state).
Fire Rise is an orange red to medium red to deep red tri-thermal with a subtle orange/yellow/pink shift, pink shimmer, bronze micro flakies, and burnt red flakes.
Swatches show two coats with glossy topcoat. At the risk for sounding like a broken record, this one also dries down semi-matte and feels like a crelly on application. Easy build up and transitions like a champ.
Psyche Blossom is an aqua green to purple to blue tri-thermal with a green/purple aurora, bright purple flakies, rainbow holographic micro flakies, rainbow iridescent micro glitter, and purple iridescent flakes.
Swatches show two coats with glossy topcoat. This one was a pleasant surprise when it went to the warm state. It’s a lovely aqua color and really pops against the purple and blue colder states. This one feels crelly like too and builds up very quickly. I’d recommend a glossy topcoat again since this one dries down semi-matte as well.
Motivation Magic is a light pink to dark pink to purple tri-thermal with a purple glow, subtle linear holo, purple and pink iridescent shimmer, rainbow iridescent glitter, magenta micro glitter, and purple iridescent flakes.
Swatches show two coats with glossy topcoat. This one has a similar formula to the previous polishes I’ve showed you so far, though I will warn you guys my camera freaked out at the pink and purple here. Just know, in person the very warm state is a bright, hot pink with a medium pink in the warm state and purple in the cold state.
Personal Power Up is a dark pink to medium purple to dark purple tri-thermal with an indigo aurora, subtle copper shimmer, pink/blue micro flakies, a bit of linear holo, and color shifting flakes. Swatches show two coats.
Swatches show two coats with glossy topcoat. Formula feels similar to the others, and again I’d recommend a glossy topcoat to bring out the flakes. This one feels like one of the crellies with the shredded flakie effect. The flakes are of the medium to smaller variety and behave lovely on the nail. No texture after topcoat.
Amethyst Rain is an ombré thermal in shades of bluish purple with small metallic purple glitter and holo shimmer throughout.
Swatches show three coats with glossy topcoat. This one feels more on the jelly side than the others so far and feels most ethereal and delicate. It transitions very quickly to temperature changes like the others and I almost feel like this might work over a cream undie to give a thermal topcoat. Once again, I’d recommend a glossy topcoat to get the sparkles to pop.
Cerulean Clouds is a sky blue to pale icy blue thermal with iridescent rainbow flakies and white shimmer throughout.
Swatches show three coats with glossy topcoat. This one feels very similar to Amethyst Rain. Once again, I’d recommend a glossy topcoat to get those sparkles to pop.
All polishes shown are currently available! Each polish is $11. You can find them at the link below, and don’t forget to check out my swatch video to see these beauties transition!
