Having a manicure each week is my biggest indulgence. I love the pampering I get for half an hour a week from my nail tech. A half hour that I try not to think about the world around me and just concentrate on my nails. But what I love even more is when I bring in a polish that knocks my socks off, which is exactly what KB Shimmer‘s summer 2016 polish GULL, GET READY did for me. This is the 5th polish from the summer polishes that KBShimmer sent for Lisa and I to test. Having this to wear and stare at for 7 days – what a delight.
I normally ignore polishes with flakes because they can be difficult to remove but I haven’t found that with the two flake polishes I have from KB Shimmer (Gull, Get Real and Garnet from the Birthstone Collection). Yes I’ve had to work harder to remove these but they weren’t impossible at all. With both of them my nail tech gave me some cotton balls and remover knowing I’d need extra time. I was surprised that it only took me a few passes to remove.
But the important thing is the wear and Gull, Get Real wore fabulously for the week. KBShimmer describes this dazzler as a light, grey toned purple, this lilac like polish sparkles with micro holo and metallic flakes.
This has a medium glitter load with the glitter size going from micro to small. Look at that holo! It’s like bringing fireworks to my nails.
KBShimmer Gull, Get Real is everything I love in a polish: metallic, holographic, shiny, and a gorgeous purple. I can’t ask for more for $9.25 except more KBShimmer Polishes! — Marcia
p.s. Speaking of more KB Shimmer polishes, I just ordered a limited edition one from Color4Nails called Berried in the Sand that I can’t wait to wear and share!
