Good morning, lovelies. I’m starting out the new year with a simple but pretty manicure in lots of colours. I’m so glad I made puppy eyes at my husband and picked up some of these KBShimmer flakies, because they’re so pretty!
This is just 1 coat of KBShimmer – Rainbow Shield over 2 coats of NYC – Black Elixir. The Black Elixir is part of the In A New York Minute fast-drying line, and I found it actually dried too fast, and ended up being draggy and patchy. Certainly not my favorite polish to work with, but it did cover reasonably well in 2 coats.
The Rainbow Shield on the other hand was excellent in performance. I did brush a few extra times to get the flakes spread out well, but it was pretty easy, and I didn’t have any sharp bits sticking off my nails after things dried down like I often do with glitters.
The KBshimmer flakies are only available on their Etsy store and they are limited edition. If you want them, swing by soon to get them, as I have no idea when they’re going to go away forever. I’m loving mine.
Have you been swept up in the flakie trend this season? So far I’ve managed to get away with only a few bottles, but I certainly have my eye on that ILNP brand complete set of 13. It’ll probably never happen, but I can dream anyway!
