KBShimmer – Quantum Leaf

Man, I got a lovely polish for you today.  You may remember my love for KBShimmer, I have a few, that I either had sent to me from US buddies or was fortunate enough to get them through a restock at Harlow&Co.

This is Quantum Leaf  is from the Fall 2012 collection, but you may have guessed this from the colours. This is a rusty orange/yellow base with glitter in red, orange, copper and gold.

And it is delightful.  Really perfect for Autumn.  However, when my dear friend sent it to me from the US, I had to wear it straight away.  I just love it and it was on my wanted list since its release.

Three coats provided great, opaque coverage.  First coat tends to end up with all the glitter at the end of the nail unless you make an effort to address that.  The next two coats really bring the glitter colour spectrum to life.  I based with G & G Stuck on Blu! and the topped with a good layer of G & G HK Girl.  Love it.

What do you think?  Do you have any autumn or fall favourites you are looking forward to getting out?

KBShimmer -Showgirl

Today I have my second recent KBShimmer purchase to show you and I hope you will think that this is just as lovely as the last one.  This is Showgirl, a gorgeous black based polish packed with glitter in pinks, purples and silver in all sort of shapes.  I think I am developing a bit of a thing for coloured polishes and glitters… and with the quality of these I can recommend them enough!

As you can see above it is just simply gorgeous.  Colour builds up exceptionally well and is opaque within two coats.  A couple of the nails needs three coats, so what you see above is three coats on all nails.  If you were a bit heavier handed you could probably get away with it.  The glitter coverage is wonderfully even, it truly does come out of the bottle without you having to chase any glitter pieces.  It does dry ever so slightly bumpy, well it does have glitter in it…. and you can sort that with a good top coat.  I used Essie All-in-One Base Coat and use Seche Vite for that shiny top finish.

You can order from the website (US Only), order from the etsy site (US only) or order from Harlow&Co (International).  I ordered from Harlow&Co and was delighted with the speedy shipping. I now have my eye on a couple from the Fall collection, wow, am just smitten with these lovelies.

KBShimmer – Vegas Bomb

I have a glitterbomb of a polish for you today.  This is the lovely Vegas Bomb by KBShimmer.

This is a neon yellow base colour with tonnes of glitter in so many different colours.  In the bottle it looks green but on the nail it is definitely yellow.  It builds up really well on the nail and the colour is so unusual, what you see above are three thin coats.  It goes onto the nail surprisingly well considering the amount of glitter in the polish.  It dries well and evenly as long the coats are even.  There is no fishing about for glitter with this one.  It will be a little bit bumpy but I used a thick coat of Hong Kong Girl top coat and it has a smooth glossy look.

For my first KBShimmer I am completely thrilled with this one, I have a couple more to show you over the next couple of weeks.  If you fancy getting your nails onto some, you can order from the website (US Only), order from the etsy site (US only) or order from Harlow&Co (International).  I ordered from Harlow&Co and was delighted with the speedy shipping.
