Below: The Ruby Kisses I own...so far! Top Row L-R: Party Pink, Cotton Candy, Shiny Peach, Powder Blue, Neon Green. Bottom Row L-R: Gold Velvet, Twinkling Mauve, Sheer Moonberry, Red Cameo (love this one!), Blue Pearl, Baby Blue.
This is a brand I recently discovered and I am very pleased with it! They're extremely inexpensive (the highest I've seen them priced is $1.99) and come in a wide variety of colors and finishes. They can be found online at various e-tailers as well as some independent beauty supply stores. The application is good and the coverage on the cremes I've tried is phenomenal, opaque in 2 coats and a wonderful, shiny finish. The pictures are all with no topcoat and if I had to choose one trait that stands out, I'd have to say it's how glossy the finish is. The Powder Blue (shown over the Blue Pearl) was very sheer, so I topped the darker blue with it and loved the end result. Of the others I have tried, the coverage and color is strong and complete in 2 coats. Several of the ones I picked up have an almost mirror-like metallic finish (Shiny Peach, for example) and are incredibly foilish (is that a word?!!). They are manufactured by Ivy Enterprises in Port Washington, NY. This company also manufacturers Kiss Cosmetics as well as a Kiss Haircare line and a perfume line. My research shows me that they have just 50 employees, so they are relatively small. I only own 11 of these polishes but definitely have the desire for more, now that I have discovered them and had a chance to use several of them. If you come across these pretties, pick a couple up and I think you will agree with my findings. If you are unable to locate these, let me know and I'll try to pick some up at my local beauty supply for $1.59 each. They were on sale for .99 when I bought them and after trying them, I should have snatched up every color they had!
