Hello on this first day of February. One year ago, our lives started to turn upside down due to the pandemix and I’m sad to say that we are still on that struggle bus. I hope that things start to get better for all of us. I am hopeful but still incredibly disappointed by the behaviors I see. Anywho, I really hope that things turn around. I haven’t been much in the mood to swatch and play with polish except for the random mani or swatch. Well, today I am going to be sharing with you the polish I’ve been wearing for the last week. KBShimmer I Can Sea Clearly Now is such a chameleon polish that I know you will love. Let’s take a look at my swatches below. Continue reading “KBShimmer I Can Sea Clearly Now – PPU February 2021”
It’s January first and it feels like just any old day. I think that’s pretty normal for the kind of year we have had, and sadly I don’t think that things will get much better at least for another 6 months at the very least. I am hopeful, but I’ll just have to wait and see. Since today is the first Friday of the month, PPU is open for business. Today I’m going to be sharing with you KBShimmer Rose Glow and the corresponding sugar scrub in the scent Feeling A Little Salty. Let’s take a look at my swatches below.

We are nearing the end of 2020 which has been a complete disaster in my mind. It has been a year of loss and frustration and we have all had to adapt to this new “normal.” I don’t know about you, but I’m hoping and praying for things to improve soon. It is only fitting for December’s PPU theme to be “Everything is fine.” KBShimmer Cat & Pajamas is a lovely shade that I am sure you will like for those palate cleanser days but when you still need a little something extra. Let’s take a look at my swatches below.
Hey, guess what? I’m on vacation this week which means that I am going to do ABSOLUTELY NOTHING for the next 5 days. Actually, that sounds like all of 2020 so far, but at least I can sleep in and not worry about being late to work. I’ve been working a lot lately so I decided to take 3 days off and combine them with the Thanksgiving break. I really am going to try to enjoy this week off by doing some reading and probably some organizing of my polish. This weekend I ended up doing a bunch of swatching and today I have the KBShimmer Love At Frost Sight Collection to share with you. Let’s get this show on the road! Continue reading “KBShimmer Love At Frost Sight Collection”
Hi everyone! I’ve been out of the nail game lately because I came down with a nasty cold that made me super nervous. Is there anything such as a simple cold this day and age? I immediately feared that it could be COVID so I ended up talking to my doctor about it. I was tested and it came out negative, but it has been weeks that I have been feeling under the weather. I was definitely relieved that I got a negative reading, but it reminded me that we have to be very careful and protect ourselves. I had managed to post my swatches of the KBShimmer All The Fall Things Collection on Instagram, but fell behind on getting my post up. Let me show you some swatches below. Continue reading “KBShimmer All The Fall Things Collection”
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. Continue reading “KBShimmer Moumantai – PPU October 2020”
Day two of my lead up to PPU posts and I have some amazingness to show you. Ok, so if you’ve followed my blog for a while, you know how much I love KBShimmer so this month is no different. Not only did we get a stunning and fiery polish but we also got possibly the most amazing sugar scrub they have ever put out. I am not kidding here people…like I will buy a back up. KBShimmer Light My Fire is a dark polish with a gorgeous fiery magnetic effect that I know you will love. Let’s take a look at my swatches below. Continue reading “KBShimmer Light My Fire – PPU September 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.
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”
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!
