KBShimmer Nauti By Nature Collection Spring 2017

KBShimmer Nauti By Nature Collection Spring 2017

 

 

It really feels like Spring is in full swing. After a strange Winter here in California, it’s nice to have some glorious sunny days. We’ve still been getting the occasional shower and cool days, but I can definitely feel the weather heating up. Today I’m going to be showing you my swatches of the KBShimmer Nauti By Nature Collection for Spring 2017. There is a great variety of colors and finishes in this collection which guarantees that you will find something that you like. First up, I’m going to be showing you the holos–because who doesn’t love holos?!

KBShimmer Show Me The Mahi

The six holos in this collection are pretty great–the formula is opaque and smooth with all of them needed just two coats. I always love holographic polishes so I was very happy with the nice variety. I am surprised to say that my favorite holo was Copa-Banana; I don’t think I have a holo quite this shade and I like how it looks on my skin tone. From the rest of the collection, the main standout for me was Show Me the Mahi. I love jelly polishes with various sized glitters. Crellies are something that KBShimmer has always excelled at, and the two in this collection are no exception.

The KBShimer Nauti By Nature collection is available now at kbshimmer.com so make sure to pick up you favorites. What are some of your favorite shades from this collection?  Thanks so much for stopping by today, and I will talk to you soon!

KBShimmer Indie Shop Limited Edition Polishes

KBShimmer Indie Shop Limited Edition Polishes

 

 

Oh hai there. I’m kind of excited that it’s Friday because Saturday is pretty much my favorite day of the week. This Saturday is also my nephew’s first birthday party so I know I’m going to have fun even though he hates me. He cries any time that I talk to him, that I look at him or basically just exist around him. I hope he gets over it soon because Auntie Cynthia is not happy about this. Saturday is also great because of…THE INDIE SHOP! If you are lucky enough to be going to The Indie Shop in Atlanta, you will be able to get your hands on a lot of pretties. I really wish I had the time and means to go to all of these awesome polish events because it would be great to meet all of the makers behind some of my favorite brands. As you all know, I have a major polish boner for all things KBShimmer so I’m excited to share with you the two KBShimmer Indie Shop Limited Edition shades: I Never Wood Have Guessed and It’s Petrifying. Let’s take a look at some swatches before I give you my thoughts.

KBShimmer I Never Wood Have Guessed (Indoor Light)

KBShimmer I Never Wood Have Guessed (Sunlight)

KBShimmer It’s Petrifying

So whaddaya think? Personally, I find I Never Wood Have Guessed to be a glorious polish. I love that brown, rusty color so much and it’s soo different from any other brown toned polish that I own. I do love the beautiful crellies that KBShimmer always puts out so I am very happy with It’s Petrifying. In case you did not know, these shades were created to celebrate Jen’s 5 year blogging anniversary. You can see her post here. Congrats to her on 5 years! So what do you think about these two shades? If you’re thinking that you won’t be able to get these if you’re not going to the Indie Shop, well you’re WRONG because these will be available on kbshimmer.com as well. WOOOOT! Thanks so much for stopping by today, and I will talk to you soon.

KBShimmer Hella Holo Customs February 2017

KBShimmer Hella Holo Customs February 2017

 

 

Hi there! Long time no see. I’ve been dealing with a lot of personal stuff lately–namely health issues–so I haven’t been very active when it comes to nail polish. I do, however, stay in the know by being part of a million Facebook groups. Not only do I get my fair share of gossip, but I hear all about new releases and such. Well, today I have 4 gorgeous shades to share with you that are the result of KBShimmer being a featured maker in HHC. What is HHC, you ask? The group is called Hella Holo Customs and you must be a member to buy the exclusive polishes. Let me show you my swatches of the KBShimmer Hella Holo Customs and you decide if you want to join to be able to get your hands on these (and why wouldn’t you?!)

KBShimmer Hella Holo Customs Tall Pink Of Water

KBShimmer Hella Holo Customs Deep Hue Sea

KBShimmer Hella Holo Customs Shoe The Blues Away

KBShimmer Hella Holo Customs None Of Your Bismuth

My big plans for these polishes was so swatch them in direct sunglight, but it because virtually impossible because of the weather we have been experiencing here in Southern California. It’s been raining on and off forever and it’s been uncharacteristically overcast. I ended up using bright LED lighting which allows the holo to come through even without sunlight. I absolutely loved these polishes which did not surprise me because Christy from KBShimmer never disappoints with the quality of her products. I used two regular coats of each polish and top coated them with one coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top. The only polish that I felt could have needed a third coat was Shoe The Blues Away because it almost had a jelly-esque consistency after the first coat. My absolute favorite from this quad is None Of Your Bismuth because it’s such a gorgeous and unique polish–it was also nearly impossible for me to capture the gorgeous shift from blue to pink with my lighting…but hot damn! It’s a beautiful polish.

If your are interested in purchasing any of these beauties, you must be a member of the Hella Holo Customs group; you can join by clicking here.

KBShimmer Office Space Collection

KBShimmer Office Space Collection

 

 

Hey friends, I hope that you had a great New Year’s Eve! Mine was rather uneventful unless you call a swift acting stomach bug eventful. I’m going ok now, but I definitely was hating life while the bug worked its course. Anywho, it wasn’t the best way to end the year, but at least I’m 100% better now and can focus on just starting the new year with positivity. For my first post of 2017, I have 4 of 8 shades from the KBShimmer Office Space Collection to show you. Let me show you da pretties!

KBShimmer Take Back Ctrl

KBShimmer Cubicle Pusher

KBShimmer Fax of Life

KBShimmer A Hint of Manila

Take Back Ctrl is lyfe! I love, Love, LOVE how KBShimmer does cremes so it should come as no surprise that it is my favorite shade of the 4 I have here. Fax of Life and Cubicle Pusher have such a delicate and gorgeous holo that I just wasn’t able to capture. Every time that I had time to try to get sun shots of these polishes, the weather did not cooperate. It’s been so rainy and gray here in Southern California but I’m glad we’re getting rain even if it does ruin my swatches! I think that this collection is absolutely gorgeous and I can definitely say that these polishes are office appropriate but are not in the least bit boring. The fact that they look nice and delicate indoors but glowy and holo-y in the sun is the perfect balance. If you’re interested in picking up any of the shades from the KBShimmer Office Space Collection, you are in luck because the collection officially releases on 1/4/2017 on various retailers including kbshimmer.com

Let me know what you think about these shades. Are you planning on picking up any of them? Do you have a favorite? Thanks so much for stopping by today, and I will talk to you soon.

KBShimmer Winter Holiday Collection 2016

Hi there! I’m not going to say happy Monday because I’m feeling pretty miserable right now. I was looking forward to going out trick-or-treating with my nephews tonight, but I got a pretty wicked cold so I’m going to have to sit this one out. I’m also staying home from work which I hate doing because I always feel like I fall so behind on my work. Oh well…I just hope that an extra day of rest will help. Today I have for you some shades from the soon to be released KBShimmer Winter Holiday Collection for 2016. This is a massive 16 piece collection that is sure to please you. I have 8 of the 16 shades to share with you. Let’s check out my swatches below.

Let’s start with the good: the holos in this collection are beautiful. I love how saturated they are and the formula on them is everything you have come to expect from this brand. The one polish I did not care for was Yeti Or Not. The formula was so thick that I couldn’t not get it to apply smoothly. I applied 3 coats to try to get it opaque, but you can still see some patchy areas. I think that for a polish like this, it would be best to layer it over a solid color. It is a pretty polish and has the potential to look beautiful as a topper–but I won’t wear it on its own again. Overall, I think this collection is beautiful and there is something for every taste. The KBShimmer Winter Holiday Collection will launch 11/1/2016 so make sure to head on over to kbshimmer.com to pick your favorites. Thank you for stopping by today, and I will talk to you soon!

P.S. Please have a safe Halloween!

It’s been pretty hot lately, but that doesn’t keep me from getting all excited about Fall collections. I’ve been working my butt off lately to get a lot of things swatched because once again I have fallen behind. Now that my parents are going back home after their very (very!) long visit, hopefully I’ll have more time to myself and be on a more regular schedule with my swatching and posting. Today I have the KBShimmer Fall Collection for 2016, and I can already tell you I’m in love. Let me show you my swatches below.

Oh good Lord! The holos in this collection are out of this world. Because my lighting set up does not really let holos shine, I did a quick swatch of 4 shades in direct sunlight. I posted the picture on my instagram so check it out:

 

I am never disappointed by KBShimmer and this collection is no exception. The formula on all of these beauties is great which means that they are opaque in color and have a great consistency. I used two coats of polish for all my swatches and one coat of glossy top coat. I really can’t pick any favorites because they are all so gorgeous, but from the holos, I absolutely adore Orchidding Me? and Oh My Ganache.

The official release date for the KBShimmer Fall Collection is 08/19/2016.  For your convenience I have listed all the places where you can purchase KBShimmer:

Oh hai. Is it Spring yet? You mean that 90 degree weather in California during February is not normal? I am dreading Spring AND Summer because these crazy temperatures do not bode well for us. The only thing that makes me happy about Spring is, of course, lovely Spring nail polish collections…but you knew that already. This is a pretty big collection and it is actually a two parter: 7 polishes are part of the traditional Spring collection and the other 7 polishes are part of the Mega Flame Collection. Mega Flame: they are hot like lava and will singe your eyeballs with their holo/glitter/sparkly goodness. Let’s start with the first part of the collection which includes glitters, crellies and holos.

**********************

Now, let’s talk Mega Flame. These are some amazing polishes. They are scattered holo glitter suspended in a tinted base with some linear holo to boot. They are not super gritty, but you will feel minor texture if you don’t top coat them. Once you apply a top coat, such as Clearly On Top, you will get a completely smooth finish. I am in love with every single one of these.

I don’t know about you, but these two collections pretty much killed me–in a good way. They are everything I love about KBShimmer and more. The formula on all the polishes from the Mega Flame collection is perfection. One thing to note is that when you remove them, you will have glitter. All over. But it’s totally worth it. The crellies from the Spring Collection are so pretty and delicate–my favorite being Pools Paradise. I also love the two holos that are joining my beautiful KBShimmer holo collection. I know that this is a big collection so you will have to pick your favorites–unless you regularly purchase 14 polishes at a time in which case GET THEM ALL. I certainly have been known to buy 14, 16, 20 polishes at a time so I know it’s not as outlandish as it sounds. My top picks from the Spring Collection are: Pools Paradise, Peony Pincher and I Wet My Plants. Boy that was hard! From the Mega Flame Collection, my top picks are: ALL OF THEM. The great news is that you don’t have to wait that long to get your hands on these pretties. The official release date for these babies is 3/15/2016 on kbshimmer.com I have a few more items to share with you that are new so keep an eye out for that later in the week. I hope that you’re as excited about this new collection as I am. I am anxious to hear what you think so let me know in the comments below. Thanks so much for stopping by today, and I will talk to you soon!

Were you as excited as I was when you first heard about the KBShimmer Birthstone Collection? I’m sure that by now you have seen plenty of swatches and have already purchased the polish that corresponds to your birthstone…amirite? Well, I decided to do something a little special with these beauties. When things aren’t going your way, it’s very easy to forget the myriad of ways that you really are blessed in so many ways.  I think that in the last few years I have learned how bad things can get, but I also realized how important it is to have people around you that love and support you. Through this blog, I have made an amazing group of friends. We are a crazy bunch and we basically talk all freaking day long about everything and anything. This post is obviously to show you how gorgeous the KBShimmer Birthstone Collection, but it is also a thank you to a group of girls that have become an important part of my life.

KBShimmer Birthstone Collection Diamond 1

KBShimmer Birthstone Collection Diamond 2

KBShimmer Diamond (April)

Diamond is the birthstone of our resident snark queen Nicole. Nicole is the blogger behind Polish Me, Please! and probably the first fellow blogger I became friends with when my blog was a itty bitty. When she’s not crotcheing awesome pieces for her shop, FauxFarmhouse, she is running behind her adorable daughter (whom I share a birthday with!) or delighting us with pictures of her precious dogs Minnie and Bubba. Nicole is the kind of friend who is always there to listen and offer no-nonsense advice. Even though she is not blogging much these days, I feel like we both grew our blogs together and I’ll always remember our back and forth blog commenting when it felt like we were the only ones reading each other’s blogs!

KBShimmer Birthstone Collection Emerald 1

KBShimmer Birthstone Collection Emerald 2

KBShimmer Emerald (May)

Emerald belongs to our gorgeous red-head with the killer bangs and cheekbones: Jessica. Jessica is the lovely (former?) blogger behind Once Upon A Polish. There are days when I still hope that she will blog, but I know that her life has gone a different way. Fortunately, the power of nail polish and make up is strong and we still talk about these things regularly. When I first met Jessica, way back in the day, she was going through a lot of personal things that at times got her down. I am so happy to see how the many twists and turns of life have brought her to a wonderful place now. Jessica is funny, so smart and incredibly warm. She is one of the three other ladies that live out west so it’s just a matter of time before I get to meet her. In fact, I might be going to her baby shower. Yep, a little baby unicorn is on its way! We’re all so happy for Jessica and can’t wait to see her become a mom.

KBShimmer Birthstone Collection Black Pearl 1

KBShimmer Birthstone Collection Black Pearl 2

KBShimmer Black Pearl (June)

Black Pearl is the birthstone of my favorite NYC’er: Amy. Amy is the super deluxe dedicated blogger behind The Fancy Side. If you don’t follow her yet, you are crazy–so do it now. Here, here and here. I always love hearing about Amy’s adventures in the city and she seriously cracks me up. Amy is like our own personal cheerleader: we can always count on her for encouragement and positivity. I admire Amy’s dedication to her blog and wish I could have the same energy she has for swatching and blogging. And did I mention that we share a boyfriend? Yep. The Rock. He’s mine. Errr…ours.

KBShimmer Birthstone Collection Peridot 1

KBShimmer Birthstone Collection Peridot 2

KBShimmer Peridot (August)

Peridot is the birthstone of our resident Hello Kitty fanatic: Lesley! While Lesley never went as far as starting a blog, she does post adorable pictures of her smoosh-face Leelo and of her manis on her Instagram so you can always find her there. Lesley is the only one of the girls that I have actually met in person since we both live in California. She is also the only one that has seen me in one of my “buy all the things” trances and survived. I could say a million things about Lesley, but what I see in her is strength, kindness and loyalty. She is my life-twin in just about every imaginable way, and I am so glad to count her as a friend.

KBShimmer Birthstone Collection Sapphire 1

KBShimmer Birthstone Collection Sapphire 2

KBShimmer Sapphire (September)

Shapphire is MY birthstone, but it is also the birthstone of the one non-American of the group: Siobhan, aka V aka The Gold Masta who hails from South Africa. Sib is the awesome blogger over at For The Love of Nail Art where you can get your fill or swatches, nail art and videos! Thanks so Sib, the words “lekker” and “kak” have become part of my every day vocabulary. Most people don’t know what I’m talking about when I use those words, but that just makes me extra cool, right?!? When I think of Sib, I think of her love for her zoo of pets and what a caring and lovely person she is. She always finds a way to make us laugh even when she is going through rough times. I’m so fortunate to have found such a lovely friend in her.

KBShimmer Birthstone Collection Blue Topaz 1

KBShimmer Birthstone Collection Blue Topaz 2

KBShimmer Blue Topaz (December)

Last, but certainly not least, we have the beautiful Blue Topaz which is the birthstone of both Fross and Amanda.

Frosso is the blogger behind Lacquer Me Silly. Nowadays she calls herself  a “former blogger,” but you can still find her posting nail stuff on instagram. To tell you the truth, my theory is that she is going to eventually start blogging again…at least that is what I hope. I thoroughly blame Frosso for my now out of control obsession with Jeffree Star liquid lipsticks. Today I threatened Fross with ending our friendship over some disagreements about Mexican food, but it’s all in jest. I do think that Frosso is probably the pickiest eater that I have ever known, but I’ll forgive her cause her nails are so fabulous. Fabulous nails fix everything.  I can always count on Frosso for advice and a healthy dose of sarcasm. When she’s not working, you can find Frosso enabling others with her make up or nail polish purchases or spending time with her adorable dog, Margo.

Amanda, or as her friends call her, Mae, is the sweet blogger behind Mae’s Beauty. Mae has one of the kindest hearts of anyone I have ever met. She is always there to listen, give advice or just offer moral support when you need it. Mae is also one of the OG nail bloggers I met when I started my blog, so we went through all of our growing pains together. Through all of the ups and downs, Mae remains positive. Even though she is going through some rough times, I know that good things are coming right around the corner because she deserves the best.

These ladies mean the world to me and I can’t say enough how grateful I am for every single one of them. If I stopped blogging tomorrow, I would leave this hobby with a group of life-long friends and nothing is worth more than that. So, while I spent most of this blog post talking about a group of lovely ladies, I want to leave you with my thought on these polishes: PERFECTION. The formulation on each is rather spectacular and they all apply like a dream with no clean-up needed. These babies really come alive in the sun. If you want to get an idea of how they sparkle, take a look at this short Instagram video I shot a while back:

So what are you waiting for? Get them all! You won’t regret it. Thanks so much for stopping by today, and I will talk to you soon.

I’ve been dying to share this collection with you. Any time that I get pretties from KBShimmer, I freak out and want to post everything immediately because how can anyone keep so much awesomeness to themselves?! The KBShimmer Fall Collection for 2015 is made up of 12 shades: 4 cremes and 8 glitters in different finishes.  Today I have my 6 picks from this collection to share with you. Let’s jump right in, shall we?

34KBShimmer Teal It To My Heart

56KBShimmer Talk QWERTY To Me

78KBShimmer Fig-get About It

910KBShimmer Dark & Twisty

1112KBShimmer Carpe Denim

Are you diggin’ these as much as I am? As usual, the cremes are perfection. Do I really have to say this? I mean, we all know that KBShimmer does kick ass cremes. The glitters are just so freaking pretty. For you holo lovers, don’t forget to pick up Fig-get About it (ghaaa! love the name!). In fact, just do yourself a favor and get them all. If I had to pick a favorite, I think I would go with Carpe Denim just because I love blue and I love glitter and I just can’t get over how gorgeous and squishy this polish is. The official release date for this collection is 9/15 but I’m sure that all you nail afficionados knew this already. I’m really happy to have two indie brand posts on my blog this week because I want you to know that I still support indie makers–responsible makers–who create quality products and provide great customer service. What do you think of the shades I showed you today? Which one(s) will you be getting? Thanks so much for stopping by today, and I will talk to you soon!

Stamping Saturdays #62

Stamping Saturdays #62

Happy Saturday everyone! I slept in so late today, and it felt delicious. I don’t have too much planned today except running errands and cleaning so it’s going to be a pretty lazy day. Last night I got my Stamping Saturdays mani done so I’m glad I didn’t leave this until the last possible second as usual.

12This gorgeous purple is KBShimmer Pansy-monium (press sample). The formula on this is out of this world: creamy, opaque and glossy. This is two coats, and I probably could have gotten away with one.

34For my stamping design I used Born Pretty plate BP-12 and Essie Good As Gold. I like this strange fan-like design–it’s simple but nice.

So what are you up to today? Any big plans for the weekend? I hope you’re enjoying the warm weather wherever you are. Thanks so much for stopping by today, and I will talk to you soon.
