Serum No. 5 & Polished by KPT Mother’s Day Manicure Box

Press Sample

Hey dolls! I hope you all enjoyed the Google Hangout last night. If you were unable to join us live, you can watch the video here. It was a lot of fun, so I’m thinking about doing one regularly with you all maybe once a month. Let me know your thoughts about it!

Today I have photos for you of a collaboration between two of my newest favorite indie brands: the Serum No. 5 and Polished by KPT Mother’s Day Manicure Box. The box features two polishes, a thermal and a glow in the dark, a cuticle oil pen, and four nail art charms.

Serum No. 5 Total Mom-Sense is a creme-jelly hybrid base filled with purple, pink, and glitters that glows blue in the dark. This is a cute glitter mix and I’m so glad it doesn’t have a very chunky look. The formula was great and applied nicely in two thick coats. The glitter density was great and they didn’t drag upon applying the second coat. Total Mom-Sense does dry to a gritty finish, so top coat was added.



Polished by KPT Sunday Rose is a thermal polish that is rose pink with filled with violet and gold shimmer when cold and transitions to a light, almost white pink when warm. This is such a girly thermal, which means I automatically love it. The color shift was quite sensitive with just my regular body temperature. Sunday Rose’s formula was sheer, but not runny and quite easy to use. Three coats were used for opacity.




This is such a fun collaboration between these two. I love how they always put together the things they do best, thermals and glow in the dark polishes. The Mother’s Day Manicure Box will be available for $27.50 (approximately $15 savings) on on Friday, 4.18.14 on Serum No. 5 (international shipping available for that weekend to the list of approved countriesor Saturday, 4.19.14 on Polished by KPT (US and Canada shipping only). 

These two brands are so amazing, they are also giving away one Mother’s Day Manicure Box to a R&P reader! You will have one week to enter and it’s open to those with a US mailing address, ages 18+. Good luck dolls!

    I am only a mom to kids of the furry variety currently…. but every year on mothers day it was tradition that my brother and I would go to our Aunt’s house and plant flowers in her front garden and veggies in the back …. my aunt passed away a few years ago but she always treasured this time with us

    My first Mothers Day I got a card from my parents, my 2nd I got nothing, this’ll be my third and most likely nothing again. Single mother problems, lol. Kinda depressing cause makes me feel not appreciated by anyone(live with my parnets, help out best i can and with my siblings and blah). Can’t wait til my daughter can make things and all, maybe next year or the next…lol. My favorites to give was handmade things.

    • I’m sure those handmade gifts will start pouring in as soon as she’s a little older!
