I can always count on Soaper1 to keep me informed of important events in the world of nail polish. Knockout Cosmetics is a new-to-me brand, but when Soaper1 sent swatches, I was intrigued by their all-matte aesthetic. The finish of her nails is so appealingly West Elm/Pottery Barn, don’t you think? Here’s her review:
I’ve wanted to try Knockout polishes for at least two years, but the price tag always stood in my way (they retail for $19 each, available at koknockout.com and other etailers). Late last year, I purchased a Beauty.com gift certificate through tada.com — aÂ $30 certificate for $15 — and Beauty.comÂ carries Knockout. Time to pull the trigger!
Liberty applies very well for a pastel and matte polish. The wear was average; I had some chips after a couple of days (to be expected, since I didn’t use a topcoat). I painted three thin coats, though some users apply just one coat with these. I don’t apply polish well enough to be done in one coat.
