Spiraling nail art for Digital Dozen Pattern on Pattern

Monday, February 9, 2015


It's Digital Dozen time again. This month's challenge is Pattern on Pattern. I am having fun with this theme.

For today's Pattern on Pattern I used some nail vinyls from KBShimmer. These spiral nail vinyls made creating this swirling look oh-so-easy. Just peel them off and press them on to your dry base color and apply polish. Make sure to peel the vinyls off quickly. If you let the nail polish dry on top, you will end up peeling up a lot more than you wanted to.

Let's take a look.

I started off with a base color of Orly Bling. I wanted to be able to see shimmer through the "swirls." Then I added a rough bulls eye using blue, yellow and green polishes from the Esmaltes Da Kelly Soap Bubbles collection.

Then I applied the spiral KBShimmer Nail Vinyls and pressed them down firmly.

I painted over the vinyls using Elevation Polish Volcanic Dust. This polish is being discontinued. So if you want it, you better hop on over to Elevation Polish and grab it. Once it's gone - it's gone.

This look came out better than I hoped. I love the shine and shimmer the microglitter base color provides.


Is this a look you would try?

KBShimmer Nail Vinyls can be purchased at KBShimmer.com. There are a variety of choices.

The KBShimmer Nail Vinyls were provided to me for an honest review. All opinions are my own. Please note that computer monitors may display colors differently. The remaining products and polishes were purchased by me.

Eyes White Open is a classic white creme polish. This white is almost a one coater. Well, it probably could be for most people. But the ridges on my nails demanded an extra coat. This is two coats with a top coat of KBShimmer Clearly on Top.

KBShimmer - Men are from Mars-ala swatches

Sunday, December 21, 2014


Today's post features KBShimmer's version of Pantone's prediction for the 2015 color of the year - Marsala. "Men are from Mars-ala" is an earthy, red-brown holographic shade that will make a fresh new addition to any neutral nail palette. Worn outdoors or in bright light, Men are from Mars-ala features a linear holographic and when indoors, this shade is rich and warm – just like a glass of Marsala wine should be!

The polish applies easily and dries to a high-gloss and holographic finish. I used two coats with a top coat for the swatches below. 

KBShimmer - Men Are From Mars-alaThis shade is gorgeous in indoor lighting as well as in sunlight. There hasn't been sunlight here in quite a while though, so I couldn't grab any sunlight swatches.

Leaf of Faith, Rust No One KBShimmer polish swatches, review

Monday, November 17, 2014


I have a couple of KBShimmer polishes to share with you. These are from the fall collection. They are perfect for season, or any event.

Let's take a look.

Leaf of Faith is a deep Cabernet red jelly with glitters in red, orange and gold. It also has scattered holographic micro glitters that add depth and dimension. This is three coats with a top coat. The jelly applies evenly and the glitters rest flat against the nail.






Rust No One is an orange, rusty, red leaning pumpkin shade that is ideal for the fall and winter season. It's actually perfect for any season as this sun thirsty linear holographic polish is quite content to bask in the sun, or in a fireside glow. This is two coats with a top coat.






Make sure to check out some of the other polishes from the fall and winter collections here and here

These are available from the KBShimmer online store and Harlow & Co.

There are some specials for you from KBShimmer. Free shipping on all orders of $40 or more. Valid Nov. 1 - Dec. 31.
Get Holly Back Girl free with an order of $70 or more.  Valid Nov. 1 - Dec. 31. Use code HBGFREE.
