KiloX Lacquers Rescue Collection consists of six colors that are chock full of glitter and packs a punch of color.

KiloX Lacquers is an Indie that is based in Las Vegas, Nevada, and launched in July of this year. Her first collection, World Opulence can be found here and here.

Kilox Lacquers Rescue Collection has six colors:

  1. Kilo is a black lacquer with a iridescent green and golden microglitter. Kilo was inspired by Morgan’s beloved cat Kilo and captures Kilo’s black coat and green eyes.
  2. Jax is the pup of Charlene, a good friend of Morgan. He enjoys adventure time in the park and pretending to be a cat. Jax is a black jelly based polish with black and white pearlescent glitter scattered throughout. (not pictured below)
  3. Kora was a loving short-haired Saint Bernard rescue. Saintly Bernard is a chocolate brown with a scattered holo that is a tribute not only to her breed, but her sparkling personality.
  4. Sienna is a fun-loving, sweet Golden Retriever. This polish embodies her radiant personality with a spectrum of golden hues and sparkle.
  5. Tango is vibrant green lacquer with multiple shades of iridescent green microglitter. Tango was inspired by Morgan’s beloved cat Tango and is the colour of the blanket and collar she brought him home with as a kitten.
  6. Zulu is bright blue lacquer with holographic teal diamond glitter floating throughout. Zulu was inspired by Morgan’s beloved cat Zulu and is the colour of the blanket and collar she brought him home with as a kitten.

For every bottle of the Rescue Polish Collection sold, a donation of $1 will be made to the Las Vegas Humane Society, a local, no-kill shelter, to help homeless pets find loving homes. If you’d like to donate directly you can here.

Also, KiloX Lacquers is currently running a special where you can purchase the entire collection for $62.00. If you choose to purchase the colors individually, they are $12.00 a bottle.

The formula on these were good, sadly, I had a couple of brushes that were a bit off, making it difficult to apply. I persevered! All of the colors were perfect in two coats, but I ended up doing three coats because I’m stubborn and perverse like that. Drying time between coats was about 5-7 minutes, but that is because I was a bit heavy-handed. If you happen to see bubbles in the photo, it’s not the polish itself, but the Gelous top coat. I need to find a better alternative to Gelous to smooth and tame glitter. I’ve tried many things, but Gelous takes forever and a day to dry…and just when I think it’s dry, it’s not…and then that’s where the bubbles in the swatches appear.

Quick note, I’m trying out the Large size thumbnail in this post. It’s really…large. However, as always, please click on the image which will double in size…then click on the image again (it will triple in size!) to view the photo in its original size.

This is an image heavy post – you have been warned!

Someone asked me why I don’t use a light box – I’ll be honest: I don’t think light boxes truly reflect what a color is like in real life. While I think a light box can get you prettier, edgier shots of a polish, I don’t think it’s very realistic. So while my images may not be as richly saturated with jewel tones or deep hues, you are getting a real-life look at the polish in action.

Thank you for making it this far. If you liked what you read, please share this – sharing is caring!

À bientôt!
