Kat Von D Nail Polish

Did you know that Kat Von D now has nail lacquer out? Yep! It’s called High Voltage Nail Lacquer.

So far there are just four shades in smallish bottles (0.25 oz). but they are shimmery and fun! The shades are Mad Max (blue), No Regrets (fuchsia), Wonderchild (purple) and Sparklehorse (yellow). I don’t have Sparklehorse A. because it wasn’t available the same time as the other three and B. I am pretty sure that warm yellow will not look good on me anyway.

Each of her bottle caps are decorated with her black and silver rose tattoo design with her initials on top. They have a slight grip to them which makes holding them nice.

The one gripe I have is the wand is extremely short so basically you open it and have the brush immediately. Kind of strange but not really hard to paint with.

Some more info about them from Sephora:

These vibrant, vivacious nail lacquers were inspired by the neon trends of the ’80s. The high-quality, richly pigmented formulas will catch all eyes in the room with their bright, ultra-reflective shine. Infused with tiny particles of shattered glass, these are the boldest and shiniest polishes you’ll find. The extended wear, anti-chip formula is water and detergent resistant and provides UV protection to ensure the color’s fidelity.

These lacquers are formulated without toluene, formaldehyde, and DBP.

Kat Von D No Regrets
No Regrets

No Regrets is a bright shimmery fuchsia pink. There are hints of blue sparkle in there also. It’s a great bright pink, though I don’t think all that unique from some others perhaps. The formula was nice. I needed three coats for full coverage, but no issues.

Kat Von D Wonderchild

Wonderchild is a shimmery amethyst purple. This too has some blue shimmer in it in certain lighting. Very pretty deep purple color, again not sure it’s all that unique. This was three coats.

Kat Von D Mad Max
Mad Max

Mad Max is a medium shimmery blue with a purple duochrome effect. You cannot see the duochrome in this photo, but believe me it’s there. It’s very purple/blue in real life. I used three coats.

In this photo you can see the purple more. It’s a really cool color in person, definitely the one I liked the most.


I think this is a nice sorta “safe” start for her to venture into the nail polish world. I feel these are safe because they’ve all been done before. I would love to see something super off the wall from her! I do think the polishes are overpriced for the size. I wish they were around $8.00.

Availability: Sephora only.

Pricing: $12.00 each.
