Mama Said Knock(you)Out!

Photobucket Have I got more nail polish for you! Trying to get back on schedule with all the nifty products and companies I have to present to you, I have to resort to double and maybe even triple a day posts. But y’all like that right?

This one is a-one that should matte-a to you. Corny? Eh…

Remember when KO Knockout was having an event at Henri Bendel and I got my nails done in Ox? If not, click here for a refresher. Well I have two more polishes in my collection of mattes and I felt compelled to share.

All the colors:

product-karen  product-liberty  product-OX  product-Pool  product-Concrete  product-flatte  product-powder  product-calamine
(Left to Right) Karen, Liberty, Ox, Pool, Concrete, Flatte, Powder, Calamine

The two that I have are Liberty (left) and Concrete. And here are the lookers themselves!

Check out the fancy packaging . I had to lighten the pic so you can see all the fancy emboss-ment and frosted look. 🙂

You can also click here to see what Ox looked like on my digits!

I have to say KO Knockout is the brand that has the best matte formula that I’ve come across. It lasts super long, has a large matte color selection, and has super original packaging.

The most interesting thing about this company is that they post swatches of all their polishes! Granted they don’t have hundreds so it’s easier, but really – I haven’t seen this anywhere else. Click here to check out the looks!

What do you think? Have you tried a matte polish yet?

Care to try KO Knockout?

Nailed again!

Last time I admitted to getting nailed, it was at Sephora.

Well – this time I had the pleasure to make it out to the KO Knockout event at Henri Bendel. They were debutting new colors Concrete (gray) and Pool (turqouise), and had drinks, and manicurists at hand.


The craze now more than ever is matte polishes and KO Knockout is all about matte.


The colors left to right:
Concrete, Pool, Flatte, Liberty, Karen, Calamine
Ox, Liberty, Karen, Calamine, Powder, Pool


Fancy drinks. I have no idea what was in it, but it was pretty and good. 🙂

My manicurist was a KO employee – Julia. she had Flatte on her own nails.


My polish of choice: OX


oooo! matches my shoes!

Since it’s matte, and curiosity killed the cat (and satisfaction brought it back) I just had to know what it was like with a clear top coat in a cream as well… Trust and believe it was the cat’s meow!
