KBShimmer Swatches and Reviews

Hello! Hope everyone is looking forward to the weekend! I know I am. I've had a stressy week and I just need to kick back and do some nail art this weekend. Oh and clean the garage. Which one do you think I would rather do ;)
I picked these 3 from KBShimmer to show you today because they are all glitters in a base. You can purchase from her shop, or from Harlow & Co. I love the creativity that glitter top coats give you, but sometimes you just need to pop on the glitter (and your fast dry top coat) and GO!

 Elle is a sweet light grey several pink, white and grey glitters. Inspired by elephants, she sure is pretty. I have a soft spot for pink and grey/silver. They were my wedding colors :)






 Watercolor has a base with purple glitters in two sizes, a bright blue and a satin purple. And more glitters, royal blue large hex, pink holographic hex and magenta hex glitters.  And MORE glitters, micro pink and larger sliver holographic glitters for some added sparkle.  This polish was inspired by a watercolor painting.




 Newsprint has a slate grey base with bar glitters in red, white and black. Square glitters in red and sliver holographic are set off by black glitters in several hex sizes. There are even red, white, black and holographic glitters. Over 14 different glitters! It's inspired by...NEWSPRINT, you know, because it's black and white and red (read) all over! :D 



These are all 2 coats with Poshe top coat. The only one that gave me a little trouble was Newsprint. The formula was a little thin, so I had to be careful not to flood the cuticles or sides of the nail. The little red string glitters are trying to curl just a tiny bit. As you can see though, not at all unwearable and I really love the way the red and grey go together. I've been liking everything with grey lately!


OK guys - it's late now..have a great night, I'm outta here :P

  3. I love Elle and Newsprint! Gray based glitters have really been sticking out to me lately. Thanks for the photos, its nice to know when the base will be too sheer or ok as just a glittery polish.
