KBShimmer Moumantai – PPU October 2020

KBShimmer Moumantai – PPU October 2020

Excuse me, weekend…where did you go? I have to admit that the last few weeks have gone by in a blur because I am ridiculously busy at work. I love being busy, but it has also been a bit overwhelming. The good thing is that I have great colleagues to collaborate with so I know eventually things will fall into place. This week is also my birthday week! I’m turning 41 on the 22nd and it feels a little weird. I almost feel like 41 feels more real than 40–does that even make sense? I had to make an effort to swatch this weekend because I had so much to do and I hope that I can catch up this following weekend. Today I am sharing with you an awesome polish and scrub from one of my favorite brands (probably, really, my favorite brand but you know how we try not to play favorites with our polish babies!). KBShimmer Moumantai is a stunning shade that I know you will love. I also have a new sugar scrub scent to talk about so let’s get the show on the road.

KBShimmer He Slimed Me – PPU & IPU August 2020

KBShimmer He Slimed Me – PPU & IPU August 2020

Can you believe August is right around the corner? I’m actually in complete disbelief because it has not felt like Summer at all in Southern California. In fact, the weather has been rather mild and I haven’t even had to use my AC yet…what in the world?? I know 2020 has kind of been garbage all-around, but I sure hope that things start to turn around for all of us. After July’s rewind theme, August is bringing us Weird Science! If you’re old enough, you know you heard that song in your head. Today I’m going to be sharing KBShimmer He Slimed Me and the corresponding sugar scrub. Let me show you some swatches below.

KBShimmer Endless Summer Collection

KBShimmer Endless Summer Collection

Hello there! This weekend was full of nail stuff because I decided to finally assemble the two Helmers that I purchased from Ikea back in April. I know…I know. In my defense, I didn’t technically receive them until the end of May, but because I had such a horrible time assembling my other Ikea furniture, I just put it on the back burner. I did manage to do some swatching before I ruined my hands and nails with more furniture assembling which is what I’m going to be sharing with you today. The KBShimmer Endless Summer Collection is a perfect example of a brand listening to their customers. After Sol What debuted in Polish Pickup, people went bonkers for it. Then we got a blue version and finally we now have a gorgeous collection with a similar finish. Let me show you some swatches below. Continue reading “KBShimmer Endless Summer Collection”

KBShimmer Secret Menu – PPU & IPU June 2020

KBShimmer Secret Menu – PPU & IPU June 2020

Ugh…here I go making excuses as to why I haven’t posted in a month. Well, you may know that I moved into my new apartment on 5/1 so it’s been really hectic. I pretty much moved on my own and it sucked. Since I moved during a difficult time, deliveries of things like furniture took much longer than expected. In fact, I just received the last of my big furniture orders. I do have my bed (which I had to get replaced since it was damaged during delivery) but I have almost everything else. I haven’t been able to really do the small things like decorative touches, but that’s not really a priority right now. As far as polish is concerned, I still have most of my pretties in storage while I wait to set up my Herlmers. Anywho, today I wanted to share a deliciously shifty polish and sugar scrub. Leave it to KBShimmer to ignite my desire to blog and post again! KBShimmer Secret Menu is a beautiful polish that will be available later this week so let me show you some swatches!

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 Seems Fishy – PPU & IPU April 2020

KBShimmer Seems Fishy – PPU & IPU April 2020

Hello friends! I hope that you’re doing as well as can be expected in our new reality. I am doing my best to stay home and only go out once a week to get necessities, but it’s definitely hard. I have hope that if we all do our part, we can get through this. Since April is right around the corner, that means that Polish and Indie Pickup are going to be opening up shop this Friday. Today I’m going to be sharing with you my swatches of KBShimmer Seems Fishy which is completely stunning. I have taken pictures in different angles and lighting to show you just how shifty it is. Let’s take a look at my swatches below. Continue reading “KBShimmer Seems Fishy – PPU & IPU April 2020”

KBShimmer Sól What? – PPU & IPU March 2020

KBShimmer Sól What? – PPU & IPU March 2020

I know that February is a short month, but I’m still shocked that March is right around the corner. I recently got the news that my place will be ready by May 1st which means that I only have to stay at my temporary place for 2 more months. You have no idea how happy this makes me because I’ve felt displaced since December. It has definitely been rough, but I feel like I am now seeing the light at the end of the tunnel so I just have to wait it out for 2 more months.  So that’s great new for me that has definitely put me in a much better mood–which brings me to other things that put me in good mood: pretty polish! Today I am sharing with you my swatches of KBShimmer Sól What? and their pomegranate sugar scrub. Let’s take a look at my swatches below.

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.

KBShimmer White Here White Now & Total Eclipse

KBShimmer White Here White Now & Total Eclipse

Hey there! I hope your Monday is going well. I’m here chugging along trying to make some meaningful changes in my life. I’ve started keeping a planner to help me do a few things: track my diet, my exercise and my blogging. While I’m not making blogging a strict activity, there are a lot of things that I want to do to help me recapture the joy I used to get out of this hobby which will hopefully include eventually doing swatch videos.  I’ve made some serious efforts in regards to exercising more and I’m already seeing some results which is super encouraging. Anywho, today I have two staples polishes to share with you: KBShimmer White Here White Now and Total Eclipse. For anyone that loves to do nail art, having a good white and black polish is a must so I have these two great options to share with you.
