KBShimmer for Hella Holo Customs, August 2017

Press Sample

Greetings, dear readers, and happy Monday! I'm usually not an anti-Monday person, but I am really feeling that way today. I spent most of my weekend in bed resting and attempting to recover from my illness, but I sadly didn't have much luck on that front. I'm still about as sick as I was before the weekend came around. Boo hiss! At this time, I'm still reasonably sure it's just a nasty virus so there isn't anything I can do beyond resting. This week is likely to be a light week on the blog front for that reason, but we shall see as the week progresses. I did want to jump in and share this post with you so let's do this!

If you're not already a member of the Facebook Hella Holo Customs group, I have three very good reasons for you to join this month! KBShimmer is one of the guest makers for the month of August, and the brand has just introduced three beautiful polishes available for group members only. Let's check them out!

One Holo-of a Storm

A periwinkle leaning blue polish, this holographic shade sparkles with holo glitters. At the right angles, a pink shimmery flake with blue shifts pops through for a vibrant polish your tips and toes will love. If you like our Mega Flame finish, this shimmery cousin to that collection is perfect for you! Best in 2-3 coats.

Now this is one holo of a polish! I love everything about this particular polish- the colour, the finish, the flashes of pink; it truly is a spectacular shade! The formula is phenomenal as well, and it applied easily in two coats for opacity. I'm also wearing KBShimmer's Clearly On Top top coat for these photos. Although this is described as a 2-3 coater, I was impressed with how pigmented this polish was. While I needed two coats, I almost got away with a single coat; those that normally use thicker coats may find they only need one carefully applied coat for opacity.

Pinking of Paradise

A softly tinted pink polish features our holo glow flakes. These flakes have a unique holo glow to them in bright lights, while in softer lighting, a turquoise shimmer pops out to say hello. This polish is sheer enough in one coat to layer over your favorite pink cream, but is best in 2-3 coats alone.  If you loved our Polish Con exclusive, We Make Your Dreams Come Blue, you will not want to miss this sister shade!

Hello, gorgeous! While this isn't generally my ideal shade of pink if it wear a creme polish, there is so much awesomeness going on in this polish that it is truly glorious! The holo glow flakes certainly make it fun and more suitable to my taste, but it is the flash of turquoise shimmer that makes this polish amazing. I dare say that even those who don't like pink at all may even enjoy wearing this beauty on their nails! The formula was on point and very easily to apply onto my nails. This particular polish is a little sheerer than the others in this post as I needed three coats for opacity. I'm also wearing Clearly On Top top coat for these photos.

That Goes Without Cyan

An aqua leaning blue color, we accented this strong linear holo with bits of copper and gold for a sparkle even in low lighting.  Best in 2 coats.

I have a weakness for aqua-type blue shades, so it's not too surprising that I have a particular love of That Goes Without Cyan. The formula is ultra-smooth, and the application was sublime with two flawless coats. Like the rest of these photos, I also added Clearly On Top top coat for these swatch pictures.

The new KBShimmer polishes for the Hella Holo Customs Facebook group are now available for purchase. Please note these are exclusive for group members, but you are welcome to join and participate in the group fun here.

Are you a member of the HHC? Which shade(s) are you planning to pick up? All three by KBShimmer are lovely, and you really can't go wrong with any of them! Even I can't pick a favorite as it changes every time I try!

Until next time, dear readers, have a wonderful day!
