Gettin' Festive with KBShimmer sELFie!

*Polishes provided for an honest review*

I'm back with another KBShimmer polish that reminds me of everything Christmas in a bottle.  Things are getting festive and this polish is most appropriate! 
When I put on sELFie from KBShimmer's winter 2015 collection, it reminded me of garland and Christmas lights on my nails.  The name is adorable also reminds me of "Selfie" the sitcom that was on ABC last year. I am still so sad that it got cancelled, so let's just admire this polish!

sELFie is a crazy holiday glitterbomb of light and dark holo green glitter mixed with holographic silver, gold and red glitter in a clear base.  I see blue flashes too, but it might be the holo.  I decided to wear 3 coats of sELFie on its own (in all its glory) with a coat of Clearly on Top topcoat.  Swatches were taken outdoors.
Coverage was good and easy to control even with a thicker suspension needed for all that glitter.  You will just need 1 coat of sELFie if you wear it over another polish.

If you want to check out the full KBShimmer winter collection (there are 14 polishes in total and you can see 2 more here) they are available on Amazon and at

Let me know what you think of sELFie!  For me, it was out of my comfort zone at first, but my coworkers and friends loved it when they saw it so I've been rocking it!  I wish you all a most wonderful weekend and thanks for stopping by!

KBShimmer Winter - Yule Worthy and Owl Miss You

* Contains PR samples for review *

Hello sweet friends!  I have 2 stunning polishes from the current KBShimmer Winter/Holiday collection today.  There are some serious beauties in this collection and a few others made it on my wish list, but these two are going to be great to wear all throughout fall and winter.

First up is Yule Worthy and all its sparkly goodness!  KBShimmer describes it as: a warm burgundy leaning, chocolate brown polish with micro metallic flakes.  The description is spot on to the polish because I couldn't decide if this was a brown polish or a burgundy polish. 

I also see some very, very sparse scattered holo in Yule Worthy too.  Coverage-wise Yule Worth is fantastic!  I used 2 coats but was opaque in one careful coat.  The formula is thick, but not too thick, it just lends to good opacity.  I also used 1 coat of KBShimmer's Clearly On Top topcoat.  Love!

Next is Owl Miss You and it's another neutral but with something special to make it unique.  Owl Miss You is a beige/taupe filled with golden and copper flakes and shimmer. I see a few sage green flakes every so often too which I LOVE (you can see in the bottle shot).  Reminds me of a cozy cable knit sweater.  2 easy coats + topcoat and it's perfection.

In all the KBShimmer polishes I've tried, I have nothing but good things to say!  They really are a wonderful polish and I hear their Mani Shots and water decals are amazing too!  If you're interested in any of the other colors from KBShimmer's winter collection both present and past, you can find them on Amazon and on

Blue Christmas

**Polishes were provided for an honest review**

Today I have a few polishes from KBShimmer's Fall lineup that I have deemed holiday appropriate. This year for me will be very different since I lost my Gram in August this year. The first Christmas without someone you love can be a tough experience and I think some of us are still going through the grieving process. 

I decided that Breaking Blues and Carpe Denim were gorgeous blues for a Blue Christmas mani.

Outside; In natural light
Carpe Denim is a the squishy navy jelly on my pointer and middle fingers. It is packed with holographic silver glitters that make it look like the night sky. It applied easily and I decided to use 3 coats only because I didn't get my edges evenly in the first 2 coats. If I wasn't taking photos, I would have only used 2. The creme on my ring and pinky fingers is Breaking Blues. This is a terrific one coater, though I am wearing 2 coats here for photo purposes. I was really impressed with this one! It leans periwinkle to me and I love it!

Indoors; with flash
This little angel was in the flower arrangement I had made for my Gramma. I keep her on the mantle to remind me that she is always in my heart. I know she is spending Christmas with Jesus this year but that doesn't make me miss her any less. If you are missing a loved one this year know that you are not alone and that I am sending a big hug your way!
