Mad Max is a blue to purple duochrome shimmer. It looked like it would be a 3 or 4 coater on it's own so I ended up using 1 coat over SpaRitual Undercurrent when I wore this mani. Undercurrent is a really gorgeous cobalt blue...I'll have swatches of it up later this week! I think putting it over a darker shade really ended up being the best decision, the duochrome on it's own was a bit hidden but over the darker base it really came out to play! It was SO obvious in person but so hard to capture on camera for some reason :( Sorry about the minor tip wear in these photos, I took the photos after almost 2 days of wear!
Just because I know someone will ask...the bottle I'm holding in the last 2 pictures is a Color Club base coat. The Kat Von D bottle is super cute...but kind of a pain in the butt to hold and get good pictures of my nails with :)
|this photo was in the shadiest spot I could find, apparently my camera could only capture the purple in that awful light...wtf camera!|
|this photo is in "normal" shade|
|this photo is in indirect sunlight! so pretty!|
I really do love this polish but it's very small, .25 oz...aka half the size of a full sized OPI or China Glaze. For the amount of polish you get I think the $12 price tag is a bit ridiculous. While this is very pretty I really doubt I'll be buying another Kat Von D polish unless the price goes down or the bottle size goes up.
The Kat Von D High Voltage Lacquers are available exclusively from Sephora. I bought mine online at Sephora.com, it was $12...I'm not sure if these are in actual Sephora stores yet!
