KBShimmer Fruit Slices, Yummy Yummy – PPU & IPU May 2020

KBShimmer Fruit Slices, Yummy Yummy – PPU & IPU May 2020

Hey there, long time no blog! I’ve been absent again because I’ve just been so stressed and anxious about everything going on. On top of that, I am just moving into my new apartment today so I’ve been preparing for that these last few weeks. I am basically furnishing my new place completely and it’s been difficult to get things due to all the shipping delays. I totally understand the delays, but it doesn’t make it any easier. I took a couple of weeks off from work to get all my stuff figured out so I hope that’s enough time. One of the few things that I can still do in quarantine to get my mind of stuff is maintaining my nail routine. I haven’t felt very inspired lately, but I am still taking care of my nails/cuticles. Today I have two new products to share with you: KBShimmer Fruit Slices, Yummy Yummy and their new Spun Sugar Scrub. Keep on reading for all the details!

KBShimmer Let It Beetle – PPU & IPU February 2020

KBShimmer Let It Beetle – PPU & IPU February 2020

You’d think that due to the holiday today, I’d be enjoying having a day off to relax; alas, I came down with a nasty cold and have just been hiding out in my den of germs for the last 5 days. I’ve been living off a combination of Nyquil, Dayquil and Theraflu which pretty much knocks me out for hours at a time. I’m not complaining since I 100% need the rest. I’m glad that I got right on swatching these items as soon as I got them because I wouldn’t be getting it done now with the way I’m feeling. For today’s post, I have KBShimmer Let It Beetle and a new Freesia sugar scrub which will be available for PPU and IPU in February. Let’s take a look at my swatches below.

Pepper Pot Polish Why So Grimm? – PPU November 2019

So Halloween is in a couple of days…do you have any Halloween plans? I am pretty much over Halloween and am not planning on dressing up or doing anything. Not too many kids come around my neighborhood for candy so I know that if I buy any, I will end up eating it all myself–so I won’t be buying any too much. What is your favorite candy? Not long ago I posted on Instagram regarding controversial candy such as Circus Peanuts, Candy Corn and Bit O’Honey because I wanted to know if you liked them or not. How do you feel about these three candies? Anyway, enough about candy! Today I have Pepper Pot Polish Why So Grimm? to share with you. Let’s take a look at my swatches below.

KBShimmer Hidden Agenda – PPU & IPU October 2019

KBShimmer Hidden Agenda – PPU & IPU October 2019

Oooof! I know I have been away forever but I have excuses! First of all, I’ve been super busy at work and that left me completely exhausted to the point that I had no time for anything else. Second, I turned 40…and well, that was just a non-event. Lastly, I’ve just been kinda sad and feeling dumpy so I just haven’t felt like doing much. I actually did a bunch of swatching but didn’t even have the will to write up posts and edit photos until now. I am starting to feel a little more motivated to get stuff done so I hope to have a bunch of reviews up soon. Today I have KBShimmer Hidden Agenda and an interesting sugar scrub to share with you so lets get on with it! Continue reading “KBShimmer Hidden Agenda – PPU & IPU October 2019”

KBShimmer Something Wicca This Way Comes – PPU & IPU September 2019

Wow, is it really September already? Later this month I will be turning the big 4-0. To tell you the truth, it doesn’t feel like such a momentous occasion since I’ve always felt like an old soul. I’m not expecting any big changes just because I’ll be turning 40, but I do feel like I’ll have to step up my skincare regimen! For today’s post, I have two awesome products to share with you. First up, we have KBShimmer Something Wicca This Way Comes which is a fun and complex magnetic polish. Let’s take a look at my swatches below.

KBShimmer Mirror Mirror In The Stall – PPU August 2019

The weather is finally starting to heat up here in Southern California which means that I had to get sick. I came down with a cough and cold so I’m feeling extra miserable since it’s so hot outside. I’ve definitely slowed down a lot when it comes to painting my nails because of this and because of how busy I have been lately. Today I’m sharing with you KBShimmer Mirror Mirror In The Stall which will be available soon through Polish Pickup. Let’s take a look at my swatches below.

Twisting Nether Lacquer Lost Ions – PPU June 2019

I feel like I’ve been sleeping okay lately. I never knew that the whole waking up at 3 am every night thinf is common, did you? I googled it because I feel that I always wake up around 3:00-3:30 am which always leaves me feeling tired. I wonder if I have some sort of sleep disorder? I think it’s time to check in with my doctor! Anyway, today I have another polish that will be available for June Polish Pickup. Twisting Nether Lacquer Lost Ions is a smoky black polish full of iridescent flakes. Let’s take a look at my swatches below. Continue reading “Twisting Nether Lacquer Lost Ions – PPU June 2019”

KBShimmer What Does This Mean? – PPU & IPU June 2019

I know that I talk a lot about the weather because it directly affects my mood, but this time I’m talking about the weather since it’s the theme for June’s Polish/Indie Pickup! I’ve pretty much caught up on my swatching obligations so I’m enjoying just wearing pretty polish for more than a day or two. I actually rounded off my nails so I’ll be sporting that shape for a while. As much as I like my squoval nails, I feel that they are more prone to breaking which will not work well for me during the move. Today I am going to share with you swatches of KBShimmer What Does This Mean? as well as a new scrub for IPU. Let’s take a look at my swatches below.
