KBShimmer Celebrates its 6th Anniversary with Special Edition Polishes: Swatches and Review

I love them...there, that's all you need to know, LOL!  Just kidding...

Left to Right: "Shore Thing", "Hexy Bikini",  and "Beach Please".

Yep, KBShimmer has done it again. This is their Special Edition three- polish Anniversary set, and it consists of two fabulous creams and one GORGEOUS textured glitter.  To make my manicure even more FABULOUS, I used KBShimmer's Nail Vinyl's to add a cute wave onto one of the nails.

Enough talk, here they are!

"Shore Thing" is a bright mint green creme, There is nothing pastel about this creme and in two coats it covered perfectly.
"Hexy Bikini" is textured glitter filled with holographic glitter in silver, pink, green and even blue.  It is super sparkly with and without top coat.
"Beach Please" is a bright pink fuchsia creme, almost neon, but definitely bright and perfect for summer. This has an amazing consistency and covered well in two coats.

First, I applied two coats of all three colors on their respective nails. Then on the index and pinkie finger (green nails) I applied a thin coat of top coat and applied my jewel on the top center of the nail bed, and applied 2 coats of top coat. The jewel is well covered but still appears "raised" on the nail. :)

Then I applied two coats of top coat over the glitter nail, and one coat of top coat over the pink nail . This is when you sit back and wait for the pink nail to try. Once it had dried fully, I removed the decals using the tweezers and applied them onto the nail.

I choose the NEW "Wavy Lines" Nail Vinyl Decal , and painted the glitter over the area of the nail where I wanted "the wave" to appear. After a couple seconds, I removed the decal SLOWLY with tweezers.

If you want the "play by play" details of how to use the decals, KBShimmer has created a page called "How To Use KBShimmer Nail Vinyl Decals" . :)  She has pictures and everything...I promise you it's super easy, LOL!

After I let the "wave" dry a bit..I topped it with 2 coats of top coat and I was DONE...Oh, I forgot my thumb!

It's hard to tell here (fresh lotion applied), but I applied two coats of matte top coat on top of the thumb....for variety! :)

I LOVE THIS MANICURE and I promise you it is easy, it just takes a little time, that's it!
