Although I have been trying to hold off on buying many polishes lately (medical students don't exactly get paid... anything), I couldn't resist ordering a couple of KBShimmer polishes to add to my collection. I've seen so many wonderful pictures, it was hard to pick just two to start with, but I finally narrowed it down! Today I have for you nail art with KBShimmer Elle!
Elle is a soft gray jelly base with dark pink, light pink, gray, white, and holographic silver glitters in a variety of shapes and sizes. I used OPI If You Moust You Moust (dark pink) and Nicole by OPI Up and Kim-ing Pink (light pink) to paint/dot on the hearts and tips. A very fun look for Valentine's week!
Elle is so pretty, I had a bit of a hard time covering any of it up with nail art. Shown is four coats. It applied very well, with the glitter spreading nicely on its own - no glitter manipulation required! I did give it just a bit of extra dry time between the last couple of coats to make sure I didn't push around the glitter too much. The color combination is soft and feminine, and the many different sizes and shapes of glitter give it a nice complexity. Please note: you will definitely see this polish again! :)
I'm really happy with my first KBShimmer experience, and I cannot wait to try out my second polish soon! And possibly find some room in the budget for a few more...
