So when this indie brand contacted me I pretty much did a little dance, squeed and promptly replied with a big YES, I will feature you. The brand I am talking about is KBShimmer. Christy has been in the bath and beauty game for some time but just recently got into the polish- making game. KBShimmer nail polish first caught my eye when the brand was featured in this Beautylish article. I loved the uniqueness of her polishes, and the fact that they did not need undies (A base color).
There was no way I could narrow down which polishes to review so I asked Christy to send me some of her personal favorite polishes. I could not be more thrilled with the pretties if I had picked them myself. These are some of the most unique and beautiful polishes I've ever seen/ am happy to own!
To see swatches of these amazing indie beauties continue reading!
I don't want to repeat myself over and over so let me just say that the formula on every single one of these polishes is just incredible. First, the colored bases on these are the perfect balance between opaque and translucent. None of these polishes required a base color. All of these swatches of just Two coats of polish, except for Witch Way? for which I used Three coats. I don't know what kind of sorcery is in these polishes but the glitters have a perfect spread, there is absolutely no fishing and the larger chunks don't seem to do that think where they all want to clump at the free edge of the nail. They.Are.Perfect. Like jelly sammiches in a bottle.... These practically apply themselves, I didn't even have to do any clean-up! All swatches shown with a top coat to smooth out and bring out shine.
KBShimmer All Decked Out
KBShimmer in No Whine Left
No Whine Left is a beautiful light Red toned Plum Purple crelly base with smalle Purple and Blue glitter as well as larger varying size hex glitters in Purple and Blue. The Blue glitter in this is a really nice touch. There is something grown up about this glitter polish.
KBShimmer Hex Appeal
Hex Appeal is mind blowing! This pretty is an Indigo jelly base packed with varying size hexes in Silver, Blue, Lavender, Magenta, Blue and then there are these teeny-tiny holo bars and twinkly glitters in the base. This is really just an outstanding nail polish. I love how perfectly the glitter spread, and the great balance of different sizes of glitter on the nail.
KBShimmer Cocoa Nut
KBShimmer Witch Way?
I really cannot rave enough about these amazing and unique polishes. She has a great range of shades and blends in her shop. There is something for everyone. KBShimmer polishes definitely have a big spot in my top 2012 releases as of right MEOW! Check out the KBShimmer Site to see the full range of polishes, soaps, balms, scrubs, etc! With the holidays coming up, Christy's shop is a great one-stop-site!
I WILL be back later with a Muffin Monday! She refused to cooperate yesterday so I am trying again later! I LOVE all of these. Do you have a fave?
