KBShimmer Spring 2015 Glitter Easter Egg Vinyl Nail Art

Press sample
Hello! I'm so over the moon about this Spring collection from KBShimmer. You've seen the press release with all the shades and vinyls, I showed off all the holos and the flower vinyls and today the glitters. You can also see the swirls vinyl and thick/thin lines vinyls in this post. I actually was disappointed with how this one turned out..in that it looked different in my mind then how it turned out. I almost didn't post it, but then I remembered that often you guys like certain designs I have done more than I do. So..here it is!
KBShimmer-Meow-Or-Never-Swatch
 KBShimmer Meow Or Never - Based on the Pantone spring color Glacier Gray, this polish is a very pale gray, almost white in color with pops of purple, gray, periwinkle and sky blue.

I adore the creative mixes of base shades and glitters in the consistently perfect formulas that we have come to expect from KBShimmer. This collection does not disappoint! I have 3 thin cts here, you can get away with 2 though.
KBShimmer-Meow-Or-Never-glitters
 My goal here was to create a patchwork of glitters! I actually used all 7 of the glitters in this collection!

 KBShimmer Wind Swarm - Based on the Spring 2015 Pantone color, Aquamarine, Wind Swarm features a pale sky blue base, a mix of purple, gold, white and pink glitters, while a hint of micro glitter offers a bit of sparkle to enjoy in the sun.
Then I used the eggs from the Spring nail vinyl sheet. Please forgive the blurry image! I didn't realize until I was in the editing phase and then it was too late to take another. Oops!

 So after I painted over the nail with Ins and Sprouts, I was unhappy because in my head each egg would somehow be a different glitter but it was hard to tell one from the other. So I used Eyes White Open (also from this collection) to outline some of the egg shapes.

  KBShimmer Ins and Sprouts - Like a new bud popping through the soil, this pale green citron colored polish is alive with linear holographic shine. 
 
So, what do you think? I'm in love with all these shades, just not this particular design. 
 
The Spring collection is available Feb 6, 2015 available internationally at www.HarlowandCo.org and www.KBShimmer.com 
 
All the best, 
Victoria

  3. I think the design is so different maybe it would work better with more contrasting colours? Maybe... but then again, I'm no expert ;)
    Love the gorgeous swatch to Meow Or Never though - you make everything so elegant, dear :)

  4. Hi Victoria, your crelly glitter eggs remind me of malted milk Robin's Eggs, the Easter candy!! (I'm a candy-aholic, and I love Easter candy the best.) Your nails are so elegant and lovely -- what an inspiration! <3

  5. OMG I love how this turned out! You shouldn't be disappointed. I wasn't sure if it would work out as I scrolled through the progress photos haha, but it did seriously end up looking super cool! Especially with the outlines.
