KBShimmer's all about Rainbows and Sun Showers in the upcoming June Polish Pickup

Press Sample

Happy Taco Tuesday, dear readers! I do have tacos on the mind as I am about to head out for some with my guys, but first, I wanted to get this post up. Let's jump in!

Now that June is here, the next Indie and Polish Pickups are SO CLOSE! In fact, this shop opens this Friday, so thankfully you won't have to wait too long to get the stunning items in this post ordered!

The winning theme for June is Weather, and KBShimmer opted to use this photo as the inspiration for two incredible products being offered this month. This is something brand owner had to say about this photo:

I've never liked rain as much as my husband Jason does, but I do love sun showers. It makes me so happy to see those magical drops of rain still falling as the sun peeks out, becoming tiny prisms that reflect and fill the sky with rainbows.

It was on a recent vacation that Christy snapped this beautiful photo where it inspired a new nail polish and gave Christy the idea to bring back her rainbow-coloured sugar scrub. I have both of these to share with you today, so let's dive on in and get a closer look at both of KBShimmer's offerings!

What Does This Mean?

What Does This Mean? is described as a dusty Caribbean blue nail polish that is loaded with KBShimmer's signature holo glow flakes to emulate the sparkling rain. Red-to-green Aurora shimmer is then added to give this polish a magnificent twist.

For those of you that have forgotten or may not have seen it, the name is derived from a sweet YouTube video by Yosemitebear62 in his excitement about seeing a double rainbow.

I don't know if I have the words for how much I love this polish! I love the base shade, but the way the aurora shimmer shifts from green to pink as you move your fingers is breathtaking.

What Does This Mean? applies easily with two coats for opacity. Under my bright light setup I could see the slightest hint of visible nail line, but under normal lighting and to my eyes, the two coats was plenty. That being said, those that paint with ultra thin coats or have particularly long nails may need to add a third coat. I then used a layer of KBShimmer's Clearly On Top top coat for these photos.

I was mesmerized with my nails in the sun when I went outside to go swimming, so I snapped a quick photo. Look at that sparkle! I love that you can see a little of both the pink and green aurora shift from the shimmers.

What Does This Mean? is equally as stunning under lower lighting! It has its own rainbow effect, and I just had to share it here!

What Does This Mean? will be retailing on the Polish Pickup website for $10; there is no cap on the number of bottles available for purchase.

After The Rain Sugar Scrub

KBShimmer has decided to bring back her rainbow sugar scrub this month! *Cheers* I love the swirls of colours in this scrub. There are seven different colours in this beautiful scrub!

After The Rain is scented with a blend of sweet melons, juicy raspberries, cool lemonade, fresh cracked coconut, and raw sugarcane. If you love fruity fragrances with a hint of the tropics, this scrub is for you! These scents are actually my favorite when it comes to body products, so I am in tropical rainbow heaven with it!

Because this is going to be shipping during the summer, you're going to want to bring this inside as soon as possible and not let it sit in your mailbox. The heat can cause the oils to separate out, although this does not impair the quality of the scrub. Simply scoop a little further down to mix in the oils and you are good to go! As you can see, mine got a little separated and the colours blended together, but the center is still a rainbow swirl.

To use this scrub, scoop out however much product you need, rub in a circular motion on the body, and rinse off with warm water. Because this scrub is so loaded up with sugar, I found a little tends to go a long way. It has worked well to remove the bumpy patches I occasionally get on the backs of my arms, and I will use a small amount on my hands when I need a little exfoliation. While it does smell delicious, you do not want to eat this sugar scrub!

It will also be retailing on the Polish Pickup website for $10, and there is no cap.

I have loved trying out both these products, and I cannot pick my favorite between them. These colours and scents are personal favorites, and these are the best Polish Pickup items from KBShimmer yet! I'm sure I've said that before, and I have no clue how they'll be able to top themselves next time!

The Polish Pickup website is open now for viewing and adding items to wishlists. Items will become available for purchase this Friday, June 7th through Monday, June 10th. Please allow three weeks for shipping as monthly Polish Pickup items are available for pre-order only. These items are exclusive to the Polish Pickup and for this month only, so you don't want to miss out!

Have you put together your Polish Pickup wishlist yet? Are you planning to pick up the polish, sugar scrub, or both? I'd love to hear what you have your eye on this month!

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