Alter Ego I've Been Slimed
An intentionally sheer jelly bright pink. Perfect to use in a glitter jelly sandwich, over a cream or all alone!
No Cap

What a fun polish! I enjoyed wearing it for several days. It is so shiny and squishy! It gives me that 'my nails but better' vibe because of its bright pink shade. Oh! This would also be great over a french mani for that pink and white look!
Shown is three coats with topcoat.

Alter Ego Bath Bomb (unscented)
Cynthia's signature Bath Bomb bubbling formula, which is unscented and uncolored made with super moisturizing ingredients such as: unrefined cocoa butter, unrefined shea butter, and castor oil. This giant bath bomb is hand shaped by Cynthia herself for that Artisanal quality we all love! It also has a commercially made slime ball embedded inside it. The amount of product is ~3oz, plus the weight of the slime ball. Plenty of product to break into portions for several baths!
Cap: 40 US, 5 Intl

While I didn't bathe with it, I think the bath bomb is really well made. I mean, just LOOK at that foam!! I love a good foam with a bomb and how the fizzing/melting lasted a while was really nice too.
The slime was fun to play with as well.
The slime balls came with 6-7 different colors, mine was a green and red swirl. After playing with it for a while the colors mixed into a chocolatey shade. Although these are shrink wrapped, Cynthia asked that I caution others to unwrap it over something that can catch the crumbs and pieces so none gets wasted.

Blush Positronic Brain
Inspiration: Data from Star Trek The Next Generation
A buildable pea green jelly nail polish with golden tones and holographic microflakes. In 1 coat, this will look very yellow/golden, but builds to more green tones with each coat. Blush recommends using a good base coat as this polish has a heavy amount of yellow pigment that may cause staining.
No Cap

Shown is three coats with no topcoat. this polish is super glossy all on its own!

KBShimmer He Slimed Me
A slime-colored neon green polish inspired by that well known ghost from Ghostbusters. The polish is loaded with color-shifting flakes of gold and green and a hint of holographic micro flakes.
No cap

The green is such a vibrant shade and the flakes packed in there make it sparkle and shift like crazy! Shown in two coats with topcoat. I wore this shade for over a week with no chipping!

KBShimmer Citrus Cooler Scrub
No Cap
Inspired by an ectoplasm juice box. Bright and fresh notes of orange with grapefruit, lemon and lime for a delicious citrus blended scent. Subtle hints of cucumber, jasmine, pineapple, blackberry, and champagne give the scrub a little something extra for the perfect juice-inspired scent!

This scrub is consistently on par with other scrubs I've tried and reviewed from KBShimmer and the scent is so yummy! It's one of that may tempt you to take a bite, but don't!

Inspired by Porphyria and a belief of many that Porphyria is related to legends about vampires.
A purple jelly based polish packed with shimmer, holo microglitter and iridescent multi-color flakes and holo flakes.

One of those kitchen sink type polishes - it has everything in it! Plus, it's purple so you all know that I love it! Shown in two coats with topcoat.
