It was opaque in 2 self leveling coats! Loved the formula and I've enjoyed wearing it this week. It's such a nice calming shade.

Girly Bits Watermarble: Stamped!

After I wore my Girly Bits watermarble for several days, I stamped over it!
I used a Christmas plate set of 3 that I got last year from Aliexpress. It doesn't really have a brand name, just MR 01, 02 and 03. They all have super cute images on them for the season.

To stamp I used Jolie One Helluva Holo - it is super sparkly and opaque, stamps perfectly every time.

Hope you enjoyed the review, and don't forget to comment and follow me on your favorite social media!

You’re Brew-tiful – Reminiscent of a frothy latte, this lightened brown polish is the ideal shade for those that want bling
without the bold. Whether you take your coffee with cream or without, this brew-tiful shade is a must have!

Also coming back for a limited time, a holiday favorite, Holly Back Girl! I don't have this polish, but it is a cute white crelly with red and green glitters and will be listed in the shop at launch.

For each of the above polishes, I wore two coats for opacity. Then I topped them each with Clearly On Top topcoat, the best quick dry top coat on the market today indie or otherwise! Yes, that is a strong statement and I absolutely believe it is true. Blogging for eight years, I've tried dozens and dozens of top coats and this is the holy grail of top coats. If you haven't tried it yet, what are you waiting for?!

KBShimmer’s Holo-day Collection will be available online Friday December 1st, 2017 at KBShimmer.com, Amazon.com and select salons & retailers.

Girly Bits: Water Marble

Tonight I decided to create a water marble design inspired by Sveta's Bracelet and water marble design of it.
The Girly Bits Fall Part 1 polishes are perfect for it!

First, I prepped my nails with a coat of Funky Fingers Gesso, which is a white cream. It's quick to dry and only took one coat.

xoxoJen's swatch of Girly Bits: Water Marble

I used Walnuts About You, Stump Up the Jam and Sea You Next Fall from Girly Bits and Presence from Pretty Serious to create my bullseye.
I used a condiment cup which I realize now was a bit too shallow. I prefer a little more depth to make sure I don't damage the design while clearing the water's surface.

xoxoJen's swatch of Girly Bits: Water Marble

I used a total of 8-10 drops of polish per bullseye. When the teal and white were next to each other they blended which made a really pretty bright aqua.
I've been wanting to recreate this design for almost three years, and am very pleased with the result; however, I still love the original design most.

Happy Thanksgiving!
What design are you wearing for the holiday?

Oops! There Goes The Rain - This batch of It Can't Rain All The Time was definitely an ooopsie. Like Rain, only with a stronger purple shimmer and warm color of pink instead of gray.
Shown is three coats with topcoat. Thermals are so much fun to play with! This one flips between a denim blue and a soft pinky/lilac shade.







Words Never Listen - fern green gently glowing with shifting shimmer that goes through red, purple, pink, orange.
Although this was a one coater, I used two for photos. Formula is smooth and creamy to apply.

Special Polish
Made specifically with Kenji of manisbykenji on IG, this first started as a bit of joke since her love of crellies is lacking. In fact, she once said they all belong at the bottom of the ocean. She swatched some Great Lakes Lacquers crellies and was surprised to find crellies she liked. This will be available from Black Friday until January 2nd. 20% will benefit The Trevor Project.

Hope Always Floats - sea green with two kinds of multichrome flake and shimmer that shifts from blue to purple and bronze.
Shown is two coats with topcoat. Formula was creamy and easy to apply.
