I’m really hoping that this week goes by quickly because I have some time off coming my way! Even though I just took two days off, I’m looking forward to a nice 4 day weekend. I am also quite enjoying the cooler weather here in SoCal….but I feel like I’m being lulled into a false sense of security before the weather shoots back up into the 100’s. Anywho, on this lovely Monday I have two very special polishes to share with you. If you are lucky enough to be going to Polish Con this coming Saturday, you will get to see soooo many gorgeous polishes so I am definitely jealous.Without further ado, here are the KBShimmer Polish Con Chicago 2017 Limited Edition shades for your viewing pleasure!
KBShimmer The Age of Aquarium (2 coats of polish + 1 coat of Poshé)
The Age Of Aquarium – Chicago’s Shedd Aquarium inspired one of the two limited edition polishes for Polish Con Chicago 2017. One of the area’s top attractions, it features both salt water and fresh water attractions and is one of the largest aquariums in the country. Like the deep waters of the attractions, darkened teal shade features our holo glow flakes and a fun purple shimmer like glistening fish swimming through the sea.
KBShimmer Bean There, Done That (3 coats of polish + 1 coat of Poshé)
KBShimmer Bean There, Done That – Direct Sunlight (3 coats of polish + 1 coat of Poshé)
Bean There, Done That –One of the two limited edition polishes for Polish Con Chicago 2017 is inspired by the chrome silver sculpture name Cloud Gate in Millennium Park. More commonly known at The Bean for its bean like shape, this sculpture reflects the sky and surroundings, for a unique piece of art. Our take on the bean starts with micro holographic flakes that give this polish both a linear and scattered holographic look. We then added a touch of color shift shimmer to allow a hint of blue and pink to pop at various angles.
So what can I say about these gorgeous polishes? Not much except that they are classically KBShimmer: beautiful and perfect formula. For The Age of Aquarium, I used two coats of polish plus one coat of top coat for an extra glossy finish. Despite the polish being very pigmented, I did not experience any staining. Removal was extremely easy and was not messy at all. Bean There, Done That appeared somewhat thin when I first applied it. For my swatches, I ended up applying 3 coats of the polish but it probably would have looked fine with two thicker coats. Due to the micro flakes, I did have to put in a little more elbow grease for removal because I did have shimmery particles all around my skin.For those of you who will be at Polish Con, there is a third polish that you may have access to:
Kiss My Butkus You Ditka – Polish Con Chicago VIP Bag Polish – A limited amount of this polish will be available starting at 2 PM at Polish Con Chicago. This navy blue, near Chicago Bears blue polish is loaded with linear and scattered holographic sparkle, and micro orange glitters perfect for any Bears fan.
Unfortunately, I do not have Kiss My Butkus You Ditka to swatch for you today, but I can’t wait to see swatches of it! So what do you think about these polishes? Will you be picking up any of these if you go to Polish Con? Thanks so much for stopping by today, and I will talk to you soon!
