KBShimmer 6th Anniversary collection

Author: marta  //  Category: KBShimmer

Hello Lovely Ladies,

Today I would like to show you the KBShimmer’s 6th Anniversary collection trio.

It is a rare occurrence that a small collection can generate this much excitement in my polish-loving heart… let me show you why!

KBShimmer Beach Please is the shade I reached for first from this collection.  I  am not often drawn to ‘pinks’, however KBShimmer always (I don’t know how she keeps doing it) finds a ‘void’ in the polish range hues and fills it with marvellously original hues.

Beach Please ( the name is EPIC on its own accord) is a  fuchsia/pink.  This shade is vibrant with definite purple/blue undertones.  I felt so chic with this shade on and actually sported it during moving day :D

If the color doesn’t have you wowed (check for a pulse ;) )… the formula surely will.  This is an ULTRA pigmented cream jelly.  I almost got away with one coat – the shine is unbeatable and the squishy awesomeness is … well… awesome!

* * *

KBShimmer Hexy Bikini is described as:

The latest addition to the KBShimmer textured polish line, Hexy Bikini combines holo glitters in silver, teal, and pink and reflects beautifully under the light of the sun. It’s perfect in two average coats. Add a topcoat for even more sparkle. 

If I had to describe this polish, I would say this: if every glitter-bomb holographic polish had to give their best asset and drop it into a polish bottle- Hexy Bikini would be the end result.  This two coater is so packed with glitter.  Ultra fine silver bits and multi colored metallic bits give this polish the illusion of permanent holographic glow on MEGA HIGH.

So much sparkle!!!!!This glitter polish has made it to the top of my holographic sparklers list.

KBShimmer Shore Thing is a green leaning teal, two coater polish.  It may not be THE most original shade in the trio but it definitely is a color that I have been loving this summer.

I’m BAAAAAAACK with A England Fontayne

Author: marta  //  Category: A England

Hello Lovely Ladies,

I’M BAAAAACK.

This is my first official post photographed and typed up from the new home!!!!!

Thank you to all of you for your kind words (sharing your personal move-stories), your patience and shared excitement during this very important time in my personal life.

The move is now all behind us and although random boxes still remain unopened, and things are still looking for their ‘ideal spot’ we are slowly settling in.  My entire family and I love our new house and now that the stress, hard work and sweat of moving is all behind us we are all excited to call this place HOME.

In the midst of the move I received a number of a review parcels and I am now building up my creative juices and banking some ‘spare time’ to show them to you.

Today’s post features a shade I received from Harlow & Co: my very first A England polish, Fontayne:

Keys and mini-blog break

Author: marta  //  Category: BundleMonster, essence, Loaded Lacquer, OPI

Hello Lovely Ladies,

Well, the day has come and today my family and I will be picking up keys to our new DREAM home.  Over the next six days we will be painting, cleaning, boxing and unboxing as well as MOVING :D

In fact, this post is pre-scheduled because as of today (and for the next 5 days we will not have internet at home- as things get disconnected and reconnected)- I won’t lie, the thought of this really FREAKS ME OUT!

I have received a number of awesome review products and will return with those within a week or two. ;)

In the meantime, I may post a photo or two on my Instagram account or via Facebook-ChitChat Nails

Here are two iPhone photos (as the ChitChat Nails photo gear is all packed up) of a recent manicure of mine.  I wanted to create a ‘unique’ and soft nautical look :D

 

It was so well received on Instagram, that I thought I would share it here AND list the products that I used :D

The above is the mattified version… many of you really liked the original glossy version too:

My base is Loaded Lacquer Coconut (THE loveliest and squishiest white polish ever made)

The accent nail is OPI It’s Frosty Outside (a silver liquid sand)

The damask stamping is Bundle Monster BM-023 (full review HERE) stamped with essence Movie Star.

The anchor is a portion of a Bundle Monster images from the CYO set BM-407 (full review HERE)

THANK YOU FOR TUNING IN AND FOR ALL OF YOUR SUPPORT!

OPI Nordic Glitter Accent manicure

Author: marta  //  Category: OPI

Hello Lovely Ladies,

Not all of us are good at stamping, and not many are great at freehand nailart.  Whenever I talk to my friends about nails I always say that an accent nail is the EASIEST way to spruce up a plain manicure- all you really need is two shades (they can be complimentary, or contrasting for a bolder look)… and if you’re really adventurous you can reach for a glitter.

Today I created just such a simple manicure using two shades form the upcoming OPI Fall/Winter 2014 Nordic Collection.
