KL Polish Das Esspensive XXV

Today I wanted to share my KL Polish Das Esspensive XXV review and swatches with you. Das Esspensive XXV is a limited edition soft gold polish packed with golden glitter. It was created for KathleenLight’s 25th birthday.

For those of you who don’t know, KL polish is the Youtuber KathleenLights’ nail polish brand. KL polish is cruelty free, 5 free (that means no formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, camphor, dibutyl phthalate, and toluene), 7 free (no xylene and ethyl tosylamide) and 9 free (no parabens and acetone). They’re also currently 100% vegan.

KL Polish Das Esspensive XXV Review

I’ve currently purchased 3 shades – Zoey (mauve creme), Gumption (navy creme), and Das Esspensive XXV. Each polish is $8.50 and shipping is $4.95. I found it interesting that I was charged Florida state tax ($.81) and a county tax ($.13) for a county I don’t live in. While KathleenLights is in South Florida, the nail polish shipped from Fairfield, Ohio. The first time I ordered, the nail polish shipped from Cypress, California.

The formula was on the thicker side but easy to work with because it doesn’t pool or run towards the cuticles. It stays where you put it. I really like the formula.

The pale gold glitter shade is very flattering on my skintone. When I look at swatched online on various skintones, it looks like it’s flattering on medium and deep skintones too. I feel like this sort of gold hue is flattering on almost everyone and works like a neutral. I have no regrets about picking it up. It’s lovely.

If you are a fan of golds, you will love this polish. So far it’s the only glitter in an otherwise cream lineup. If you love this color, you may want to grab it soon, as KathleenLights said it was almost out of stock in one of her recent videos.

  • That’s some full coverage glitter! I’m not typically a gold fan, but like you said, it’s very neutral. I may have to pick this up <3

  • Looks pretty on you and seems like a really good nail polish without all of those chemicals in it! It looks like it’s packed with glitter which is good because you won’t need to apply so many layers 🙂

  • Its interesting about the FL sales tax. ?
    How does it come off? I know my Zoya Pixie Dust glitter shades can be tricky to remove…

    • It’s a glitter polish. I didn’t have a lot of trouble with it, but the best way to do it is soak a cotton ball in Zoya Remove and put in your nail, put aluminum foil around it, and then leave it like that for 5-10 minutes. Then pull it off easily 🙂
