Watercolors... Midsummers Night... KB Shimmer... Swatch / Review

I was feeling like something bright, glittery and full of color. I had narrowed it down to KB Shimmer Watercolor and KB Shimmer Midsummer's Night. I couldn't decide on which one of these to go with, so as I stared at the bottles some more...looking for an answer of which one to try first... it hit me that they actually work quit well together. So there it was...an answer...I was going to use them both.

KB Shimmer Midsummer's Night is a red based, purple neon, but not a bright neon with turquoise glitter, aqua and pink holographic glitters, and white glitters in a variety of shapes, including stars, shreds, hexes. This is an amazingly beautiful polish and is Polish is “3-Free” and does not contain Toluene, Formaldehyde or Dibutyl Phthalate.

KB Shimmer Watercolor is a blue based neon, but not a bright neon with purple glitters in two sizes, a bright blue glitter, royal blue large hex, pink holographic hex and magenta hex glitters.  It also has micro pink and larger sliver holographic glitters. Also is “3-Free” and does not contain Toluene, Formaldehyde or Dibutyl Phthalate.

I absolutely love the aesthetics of both these colors, but I must make one negative comment on the formula of the Midsummer's Night...it is a complete nightmare! It was so thick and globby... I had to fight with this polish to go on my nails! I didn't have trouble getting the glitter out of the bottle, I had trouble laying down the polish. It was crazy!! I don't own any thinner, but I sure wish I did because I would have certainly used it on this polish. I don't know if that would have helped, but I would have tried anything to improve the formula. The formula of the Watercolors was perfect...no problems with that color at all.

I love, love, love these polishes and I will certainly keep them and use them again. But I will make a purchase of some nail polish thinner before reaching for the Midsummer's Night again.

See more Indie Polish I have used. I love Indie Polishes! :)  

For this manicure I applied the following:
  • Milani Base Coat
  • KB Shimmer in Midsummer's Night (purple)...2 coats
  • KB Shimmer in Watercolors (blue)...2 coats
  • Seche Vite...1 coat

If you are interested in buying these polishes they have a website... KB Shimmer. They have tons of amazing polish colors, as well as bath and body products, which I will be trying in my next order!
