kbshimmer: Essentials

Every nail polish aficionado needs a one coat black and a self leveling white cream in their arsenal and kbshimmer has just created some with all new formulas!
Since I'm sharing these two new polishes, I thought I'd also mention other essentials I use like their Mont Bleu Crystal file and logo vegan clean up brush. You can get them all at kbshimmer along with other beautiful polishes, hand care, and nail tools.

Total Eclipse
A new, one-coat black cream. The new polish features a new fan brush with curved edges for easy application.
Shown in one coat with Clearly on Top topcoat. I'm so happy to see this brush type at kbshimmer! It's my favorite shape because application is effortless with it!

White Here White Now
A new and improved white with better coverage and improved leveling over kbshimmer's original white cream. This new polish also has the fan brush that I love.
Shown in two coats with Clearly on Top topcoat. I have always struggled with white polish, even those that are said to be easy to use. This one is on the better end of white polishes I've tried. If you're used to white being a streaky clumpy mess and you're looking for something better, give this one a try! I think you'll be glad you did.

Both polishes stamp really well! I'm showing Total Eclipse stamped over White Here White now, topped with Free & Clear topcoat.

Cyrstal File & Clean Up Brush

The file is made of high quality Czech tempered glass, with the grit etched into the glass for a long-lasting file that can be washed and reused over and over again. The fine grit is powerful enough for shortening and reshaping nails, but not so harsh that it causes peeling or tearing. These crystal files are full-sized at 135 mm (5.3 inches) inches long and 2 mm thick. They are made by Mont Bleu and come in a black velvet sleeve. They are imprinted with the KBShimmer logo in brushed silver.

The brush has vegan, nylon bristles that are acetone resistant and ideal for detailed clean up. The aluminum barrel is silver-toned and features a secure cap to protect the bristles. The handle is rhinestone filled and printed with the kbshimmer logo.
To use, dip the bristles in acetone and swipe away polish from around the cuticles. Be sure to re-dip periodically to keep the brush clean, else the polish may transfer back onto the skin. I like to use a paper towel to wipe the brush between dipping in acetone.
