Shimmer Me Box: Totally 80s NEON

Livin' In A Material World is a neon coral with a green shimmer and a sprinkling of blue-purple iridescent micro glitters. Three coats with topcoat shown. Formula was a little thick but easily applied.

I've included a darkened version of each image as an attempt at portraying this shade more accurately. Neon corals, oranges and some pinks don't photograph well under my usual lighting.

Beetlejuice - A lemon-lime neon with white and green shimmer, flakies, and a bit of holo. Three coats with topcoat, in hindsight I should have gone for one more coat. Formula was a little thick but easily applied.

The formula for each was smooth and easy to apply, though Lucy was a little thicker feeling just because it is so packed with sparkly holo glitters.
Available on May 15th at their new online shop - I don't have a link to it yet but I would bet their old shop will have a message up and the facebook fan group will likely have the info. If I get the link in advance, I'll update this entry.

KBShimmer: A Roaring Borealis

KBShimmer created a facebook group exclusive a long while ago and I've been looking forward to wearing it.
Finally, the time came where I was able to choose a polish I've purchased to wear. It was totally worth the wait, in fact I wish I could have worn it sooner. The blurple jelly-ish base is packed with holo glitter and teal/green shifty shimmers.

This polish is galaxy nails in a bottle!

The formula was fantasstic as with all the KBShimmer polishes I've worn prior. I wore two coats with topcoat and it lasted almost a week without any chips!

The polish is no longer available, I purchased it on June 6th last year. But you should join the facebook fan group if you haven't - maybe Christy will do another group polish at some point!

Ever After debuted their Dragons collection April 29th at Polish Con, and will be launching them online in the coming weeks. The polish names are inspired by the Dragonlance good dragons and are crelly based polishes packed with flake, holo and shimmer. Are you ready for these beauties?!

Each of the polishes in this collection had a smooth, easy to apply formula. For most, I wore two heavy coats which is about equivalent to three thin coats. The shimmer and sparkle the polishes emit is beautiful and I enjoyed swatching them all!

The online launch date has not yet been announced and I have heard whisperings of a new web site for Ever After. Stay tuned to their fan group for updates!
