KB Shimmer Two of My Top Picks

This year’s blogger and regular release of KB Shimmer has to be the most fascinating one of the season.  There is just something there for everyone.  I bought three bottles I think the rest were too X-Massy and I really don’t do that.  The new ones that are new for Christy’s line were the new standouts that are getting really good.  I am talking about the duo chromatic.  They have gotten good reviews and I really can’t wait to try them






This is  one is Snow Much Fun and created by Victoria from the Manicurator.  This is a light blue jelly sparkles with light blue holo glitter, white glitters in several sizes and finishes,a sprinkling of micro holographic glitter and white snow flake glitter.  I used on coat of OPI’s Cant Find my  Czech book and then two coats of the actual polish.  It dried fast and I had no problems with it.





This one is Will Yule Marry me created by Chelsea from The Nail Network.   I love this polish because of the glitters I really think the clear glitters actually make the rest of the “landscape” wet.  It is really cool and I love it.   This is another polish that can be worn year around.
I have one more but was not satisfied wit the pictures so I will be redoing that one.  That one is my absolute favorite.  There are three others that look interesting that I might order but we will see.   I think two of them end up being part of the permanent line.
So, did you buy any from KB Shimmer.  Which is your favorite?

My Favorite Indie Polish

Yesterday I did two posts stating that KB Shimmer made my favorite indie polish.  Well, here it is.  I have had this polish for about a year but it is my favorite.  It is the Vegas Bomb.  I love Vegas and I love this polish.  I am kind of saving this for my next trip to Vegas.  I was supposed to go this summer but life happens and we don’t have control.   I will make it to Vegas by the end of the year and wear it everyday. 
Unfortunately this polish is discontinued but it is the bomb because it is packed with glitter.  All colors and all shapes even some bar glitter that is why it is called the bomb.  So, there it is.  I definitely need another ring for this polish. Off to Ebay.

KB Shimmer Summer 2013

I have to say that KB Shimmer is one of my favorite indies.  I remember when her line would put out new polish on Etsy you wanted to be left alone and be fast on the computer to make sure you got the polish you wanted.  I can’t even remember what was the name of my first bottle.  For that matter, I don’t even know how many bottles I have.  So, when a new line comes out it is very exciting for me.  So, today, I have Blinded by the Bright, it is definitely a neon yellow crelly with red, teal, gold, orange and blue glitters.   It is bright but not overpowering.  I want to say that I think this polish is cute and reminds me of a little chick.   I like to wear yellow on a shopping day.  Yellow is just a really a happy color. Because of my prior jobs I have noticed that some mental hospitals are painted yellow because it does help to stimulate the mind.  I used China Glaze Lemon Fizz and two coats of Blinded by the Bright with Julep Polymer top coat.

The next color I have to show you is What is Your Damage? is a white crelly with big black glitters, smaller black, pink, and mint green glitters.  I used OPI’s My Boyfriend Scales Walls as undies and then two coats.  It was a little harder to get the glitters out of this polish but I just put the bottle upside down for about 15 minutes and went on my merry way.  I used two coats and then again used Julep polymer topcoat.  This polish is perfect for the new white polish summer trend.   After a long day at the beach, going out at night I always wear an all white outfit and this polish is perfect for that night out.
The third and last one is Grayscale.  There are several variations of this polish.  This one consists of black and white glitters.  There is the Lynnderella polish but it does not have square glitters like this one, the other one is from China Glaze Whip it Up but this one is just small black and white glitters with bar glitters.  Grayscale definitely is the combination of everything.  It has square, hex, and smaller round white glitters.  The black glitters are small black glitters and bar glitters.  So, Grayscale definitely has  a larger variety of glitters than it’s counterparts.  So, now you’ve got this great glitter topper what color do you use.  Well, if you are me you, are going to use red, white and black.  I just love this color combination. Although, I did get a really pretty ring in black, white and green ring,  I am saving it for something else I have cooking in my head.  I used Butter London’s Macbeth because it is not an overpowering red and then white in OPI’s My Boyfriend Scales Walls.  I chose these colors but you can use any colors with this polish.  Skittles, you can do an ombre,  or use all one color.  This polish is very versatile and those of you who read my blog know how much I love to recycle or have a polish that has many uses.
These polishes went on sale June 1, 2013.  KB Shimmer Polishes can be purchased at KB or at Harlow and Co.

KB Shimmer Press Release

KBShimmer is excited to announce the addition of 9 new colors to their 3-Free glitter polish line and an expansion to their nail prep line.  Owner Christy Rose says “With warm weather and sandals popping up, June is the perfect time for bright, bold colors and patriotic themes to celebrate a fun and exciting summer.”
The summer lineup includes one glitter top coat, two glitter crellys in a white base and six bright, bold polishes, two in a matte finish.  KBShimmer will also be expanding their nail care line to include two scented cuticle oils and liquid nail prep. “Our new line was created to play off the bolder palette of summer, some inspired by the 80’s and 90s, but also to celebrate the patriotic season. One of our polishes plays off the color of the year, Emerald Green, and will ease people into the summer while two others were inspired by the fall 2013 Pantone colors Koi and Vivacious. Both will make for an easy transition through the summer and into the fall.  We are also excited to unveil two scented cuticle oils in an easy-applicator pen.  We hope to inspire and motivate people to go out in the sun and show off their nails!” says Rose.

KB Shimmer Diva

Sometimes, You find a polish you really like and you wait around and buy something else and forget you we're dying for this polish.  When I saw a notice saying this would be discontinued I immediately  ordered it.  What I do now is keep a list of the polishes I am going to buy at the beginning of the month but, since, I do nail art I think sometimes I show a swatch a little later, but if it is just a brand new polish I get it out as soon as I get it.  Since the middle of last month things have been crazy.  I admit I am completely obsessed with the Jodi Arias.  The trial has reached an end sort of.  So, I am again embarrassed that I have not posted so much but have tons of pictures.  So, I need to get these posts done.

So, this polish is purple based with white glitters and purple glitters.  It does remind me of a galaxy manicure.  If you like this, there are several older KB Shimmer polishes on Etsy.
