These products were given to me to test, but thoughts are 100% my own.
KBShimmer is a beauty company that offers a variety of products from body scrubs to nail polishes. At the beginning of the month, KBShimmer launched their Winter/Holiday Collection with 16 new shades. I recently had the opportunity to get my hands on some new nail polishes from the new collection.
Also, would you like to know the best thing about the two polishes? They’re not tested on animals. (Claps for saving the bunnies!)
I was given two shades: Get To The Poinsettia (right) and Have A Look-Ski (left). Both have a holo (holographic) cast to them, which made me fairly skeptical of the pigmentation of them. However, after trying them out, I was pleasantly surprised.
Let’s talk about Have A Look-Ski first. It’s a very pretty teal holo. It comes out a bit lighter on the nails than what you see from the bottle.
I’m a big fan of nude polishes because the go with everything, but this color was a refreshing twist on my everyday look. I was able to get the full pigmentation of this polish after two coats. I really enjoyed wearing this for the weekend.
Get To The Poinsettia is definitely my favorite of the two. It was also the more pigmented of the two. Though the website says to apply two coats, I found that one coat was pigmented enough to fully cover my entire nail.
Much like Have A Look-Ski, Get To The Poinsettia has a holo cast to it. I applied it to my toes and it lasted the fairly well, considering I didn’t apply a top coat to my toes.
I really enjoyed the two polishes. My favorite thing about the two polishes is how quick-drying they are. By the time I finished applying one coat to each of my fingernails, my first hand was dry. If you don’t believe me, try it out for yourself!
I just have to say that if you are a germaphobe like me and you constantly wash your hands, you definitely need to apply a quick-dry top coat. This will ensure that your beautiful holo nails will last longer.
The polishes in KBShimmer’s Holiday/Winter Collection are now available. You can purchase them for $9.25 at KBShimmer.com, Amazon, and select salons and retailers.
(Pro-tip: Make your manicure last longer with a couple of easy steps! Make sure your nails are clean by sweeping them with acetone or alcohol before you apply the polish. This ensures that your nails don’t have any oil on them, which will help you avoid peeling. Also, wrap a bit of the polish around the tip of your nail to avoid chipping!)
