KBShimmer Winter 2015 Galaxy Nail Art

Press sample
Hello!! I'm hanging on to the last hours of the weekend lol! Back to 6:30 am wake ups tomorrow! You too? So, here I have a sort of galaxy design that I couldn't help but create using 8 of the shades from KBShimmer Winter 2015 collection. I usually stare at the bottles of a collection until an inspiration hits me and for this set it was kind of screamin galaxy nails. Check out this post showing off two other KBShimmers from Winter 2015 and a Valentine look, and this post with yet two other KBShimmer Winter shades in a simple color block.
KBShimmer Yule Worthy - A warm burgundy leaning, chocolate brown polish with micro metallic flakes.
KBShimmer Coal In One -A charcoal gray linear holographic polish with 2 coat coverage, a soft black polish.
 KBShimmer Claws And Effect - A dark purple leaning navy holo polish with blue/pink shifting glass flakes. This polish comes alive in direct lighting, with the holo flame showing off.  Indoors, or in dimmer light, the flakes show their true beauty, for a unique polish.
KBShimmer Kind of a Big Dill - A deep, near forest, green is loaded with micro and small silver holographic glitters that shine in the light.

Also Included in this look: Chilly Pepper, Brrr-tiful Dreamer, Fleece Navidad and Oh Holo Night

So, these didn't end up being my favorite galaxy nail art..but I was loving each KBShimmer shade!

All the best,

Powder Perfect Insomnia - January Trio Nail Art

Press sample
 Hope you're having a lovely weekend! I'm so happy to show you this trio, named by the fans in the Powder Perfect Coterie - the Facebook fan group. I was thrilled to be asked to blog for this brand, it's my first experience with Powder Perfect!
"Lying in your bed in the middle of the night, you are wide awake. You try desperately to sleep, but you can't help thinking of someone special, someone who is close, but at the same time, so very far away."
I decided from the start to create a nail art look using all three of these, that would be simple, and try to show the loveliness of each shade at the same time.
