KBShimmer Spring 2015 Holos - Fan Brush Flower Vinyls Nail Art

Press sample
Today is the day that KBShimmer Spring 2015 collection press release and swatches are announced. You'll be seeing a lot of swatches popping up from bloggers, so what I was really excited to do was present them in nail art designs. There are three different nail vinyl sheets available as well. Check out the official press release which includes images of the new vinyls!

 To create this look, I started with 2 coats of KBShimmer Eyes White Open also from the Spring collection. It went on like a dream and covered perfectly in 2 coats.

Then I used a fan brush to paint randomly back and forth across each nail. SO easy and simple with (I think) really striking result.

 Once the fan brush paint was dry, I stuck the flower nail vinyls down and painted over them with the white shade and fan brushed with all the shades again. Then peel off the vinyls. That's it!!

 I still have these on my nails and truly don't want to take it off. It's uh..kind of fabulous! :D

 The following two photos are with KBShimmer Clearly On Top top coat. It glosses it and smooths over the edges you can see in the previous photos. I definitely like it, but think I prefer this one before the top coat. Can you notice the difference?

 In real life the holos shimmer and glow and these pastels? Ugh. I adore. I'm still working out some kinks with my new (all manual) camera/lighting and my Index nail is still busted with a patch so I think it looks wonky. But this mani? I can't stop staring at it! After it was done my husband noted that it looked like it was inspired by Monet and I'm fine with that ;)

  4. How creative!! And, yes, before the top coat the colors look a little more defined. Is that it? And definitely Monet! What kind of fan brush (or any nail art brush) do you like? Are they actual art brushes?
