Plump Polish - Kyla the Great & Riots Not Diets

         I'm excited to share this new indie polish brand with you! Plump Polish, not to be confused with my blog name, combines a few of my favorite things: polish, glitter, body positivity, femme power, and babes. That sounds like a good time to me. Plump creators Kyla and Margitte were kind enough to send me two polishes to review.  They officially launched their line on April 2nd and currently have a few bottles left of each of the two polishes on today's post.

"Plump is the luscious and glittery indie polish baby of two fat femmes who love doing their nails and spreading body positivity across the internet."
Plump is 3 free, cruelty free, and hand mixed in small batches.

Check out the swatches and reviews after the jump...

Kyla the Great
  "Kyla The Great is a frosting-white polish with medium matte hexes in hot pink, orange, green, light pink, yellow, and the prettiest blue you've ever seen (really!). Named for Kyla's tumblr, Kyla The Great is inspired by her favorite cookie snack. At, you can find Kyla posting about fat fashion, sex, social injustices against marginalized communities, and fluffy kitties."

creamy white base
matte hex glitter mix of 
hot pink, light pink, green, 
orange, yellow, and light blue

three coats over base
one coat Seche Vite

      KtG is reminiscent of sprinkled frosting: cute and sweet. The formula was good. It was opaque in three coats, and the glitter pay off was nice after a few vigorous shakes to mix it up. Dry time was average. One coat of Seche Vite finished it off perfectly. 

Riots Not Diets
      "Riots Not Diets is a pale robin's egg blue crelly with small yellow and large hot pink hexes, orange-green iridescents, light pink squares, and bold black diamonds. It is named for Margitte's blog,, a tumblr dedicated to fat activism, fashion, and social justice."

light blue crelly
small yellow and med. pink squares
large dark pink and small opal hexes
large matte black diamonds

one coat Seche Vite

     RND is my favorite of the two. The black diamonds really give this something different. The formula was good. It was opaque in three coats, and the glitter pay off was nice after a few vigorous shakes to mix it up. I used the dabbing method for the final coat. Dry time was average. One coat of Seche Vite was perfect.

          Plump as some great ideas. The packaging is cute (how great are the labels?), the glitters are on point, and the message is one I can totally relate to. The only downfall that I can pick out is the glitter sinks a bit. After about 5 hours after use,  I noticed the glitter sank some. It's nothing a few shakes didn't fix, but I have to be honest about it. This is only the beginning for Plump; I can't wait to see what Kyla and Margitte come up with in the future! Plump will be releasing a new collection, Fat Beach Day, sometime this month.

Which is your favorite? Are you digging the positive message as much as I am?
