I am super excited to show you all these gorgeous KBShimmer polishes that I nabbed at Polish Con! KBShimmer has a new collection of hot neons that debuted at Polish Con. The neons from the All the Bright Moves collection have a juicy crelly-like formula and I think it makes them apply really well. KBShimmer Color Me Rad is super bright neon watermelon red. It has undertones of pink and orange, so it's not a straight up red. Both of these neons are so hard to photograph, my camera had a heart attack. I think my pictures of this one are too red, the pinkness shows up more in person. I am pretty obsessed with neons in the summer anyway and this one is fantastic!!
This is just two coats of Color Me Rad with no white base (yay!!). Who has time in the summer to use a white base under their neons? Not me! Luckily this is so vibrant and stunning, it's just a simple two coater on it's own. The formula is gel-like and really nice to work with. My only notes were to make sure each coat dried completely before applying the next. If the previous coat is too wet, there could be some pulling and patching.
The second neon I picked up is KBShimmer How Low Can You Flamingo? Again, it was hard to capture the true beauty of this, but it's the perfect hot flamingo pink. If you are a lover of neon pinks, snap this up right now! My pictures are a bit more accurate with this one than with Color Me Rad, but it still doesn't show off the true glowing beauty. I am putting this on my toes tonight, don't even care that tomorrow is going to be rainy and chilly!
This is two coats again with the same lovely gel-like formula. So smooth to apply and no white base needed. As with all neons, these dry matte or semi-matte, so use a nice shiny top coat!
The number one polish on my list for Polish Con was KBShimmer Grand Prospect Holo. This was a Polish Con exclusive, but I just had to show it to you because it's stunning! My pictures aren't doing it justice, but it shifts from a teal to aqua blue to an eggplant purple and deep blue, almost like a cobalt. In case that wasn't enough for you, it also contains a lot of small holo glitters, adding to the rainbow effect. It's a truly mesmerizing polish and the reason I made a beeline for the KBShimmer table immediately upon arriving at Polish Con.
This is just two coats and one layer of top coat. The holo glitters are small enough that they don't feel rough once you apply top coat. It was easy to apply and I love the slightly thicker consistency. Not too thick, but just thick enough that it doesn't run all over your cuticles. I have the same note on the formula about letting it dry a bit in between coats. If I applied the second coat too fast, I ended up pulling some of the first coat off. But that is easy enough to deal with!
The other KBShimmer Polish Con exclusive is KBShimmer We Make Your Dreams Come Blue. This frosty blue is loaded with holographic micro flakes and shimmer. It has a slight shift as well, from an ice blue to a purple-y, maybe almost periwinkle, and then a hint of aqua too. I love the rainbow-y goodness that the micro flakes add, nice touch!
This is two coats again, I'm very happy with the pigmentation of all four of these polishes. It had the same nice gel/crelly consistency as the others. The base of this one is a bit more jelly-like, so I had a little VNL at two coats, but I don't mind it. It feels like it belongs here!
