KBShimmer Run! It's the Coppers & Right as Reign

(**Press Samples**)
Hi guys and happy thursday! 

 I'm not feeling particularly chatty today.. So I'ma just get on with it... Another day, another KBShimmer pairing ;). 

 This regal pairing comes to you courtesy of the KBShimmer Early Summer collection. I chose to pair KBShimmer Run! It's the Coppers and Right as Reign because they looked so perfectly sexy together. Run! It's the Coppers is a magnificent shade of true Copper toned linear holographic. The holographic effect is outstanding in this color, and practically impossible to capture in photos. 
 Right as Reign is a perfect shade if Indigo crelly. I love that this shade leans more toward the deep violet side and not Blue. I didn't know it but I had been craving this color for a while now. The formula on this baby is just amazing and does great in Two easy coats. I love how inky and rich this color is. 

I hope you guys are having a wonderful day!! Me, I'm definitely ready for the weekend....

School Spirited in China Glaze

(**Press Samples**)
Humpday humpday! 

 So, my little brother had his high school graduation this past Saturday :D. As the proud older sister that I am I showed up with some nails in his school colors. I'm sorry this photo is a bit "off". I took this pic with my iPhone because all the batteries for my camera were dead lolol. That said, I am so impressed with the photos my new baby takes :D. I think I might invest in an Olloclip. 

 My bro graduated from Southeast High School. Their colors are Blue and Orange. I used two shades from China Glaze's latest release, the Off Shore collection. The orange shade is Stoked to be Soaked. This shade is a perfect tangerine orange that has a subtle shimmer. I used two easy coats of this color. Once my base was dry I used some bolt-shaped nail vinyls to tape off the sections I'd be painting in blue. For the blue I used China Glaze I Sea the Point. This color is a magnificent shade of true Monaco blue creme. The formula is perfectly saturated with color and so very creamy. 
 To seal em off I used LVX's new gel top coat. OMG!!! I am SUUUPER impressed with this new gel top coat from LVX. It was ridiculously glossy and did not smear my nail art (no fumes!!!). It should go without saying that it dried insanely fast as well. I experienced some shrinkage, but I think it may have been because I did not properly wrap my tips with the Blue shade. Regardless, I'm super impressed with it and definitely recommend it. 

A huge congrats to all the Seniors who had their graduations over these past few weekends!!

How I Wore It: KBShimmer Goldie Rocks & Let's not Coral

(**Press Samples**)
Are you sure it's Tuesday?! 

 Because I am lagging like it is a Monday, and I do not appreciate that :-S. As a friend of mine told me on Facebook; "when Tuesday feels like Monday it's a Netflix in bed kind of day". Trust me, I fully plan to heed her advice before I spontaneously combust. But first! Lemme show you some nails! 

This Summery look features some of the beautiful new shades from the KBShimmer Early Summer 2014 collection. I started with a base of KBShimmer Let's not Coral. This shade is a perfect pink-toned Coral. I absolutely adore that it is pink-tones as most of my corals tend to lean to orange. I used two easy and perfect coats of this shade. 
 Once my base color was dry I used the half-moon nail vinyls to tape off my moons. To make my nails pop I went with KBShimmer Goldie Rocks. This pretty is a magical shade of bright Gold, and extremely linear holo. Photos could never do this shade justice as it is just so amazing and multi- dimensional in person. 
 I topped my nails of with a coat of KBShimmer clearly on top to smooth out the "seam" of my moons. I adore this color combination. There is something classic, yet playful and trendy about these and I love it! 

 I'm gonna go on the prowl for chocolate and wine now... That should make today better, right? XOXO
