Krampusnacht with KBShimmer

 Greetings, dear readers! It's been not so fun times around here since my knee injury last week. I'm actually going to need surgery and they have rushed it to this week. Yikes! I'm getting around on crutches for the time being but it's not exactly been a fun time.

Press Sample

I don't know if it was my current mood with the injury, dealing with all that 2020 has thrown out, or just in the mood for something different, but I felt the urge to create Krampus nails for Krampusnacht this past weekend. I had the gorgeous new KBShimmer multichromes begging for some love, and the darkness of Obsidian and Much Lava To You were exactly what I had in mind. I hope you enjoy my quick and easy nail art!

I really didn't want to add too much to cover up the multichromes, and I opted to keep the final look simple. Using What's Up Nails Hotter Than Red Stamping Polish, I applied a few images from the Bah Humbug-02 Stamping Plate by Hit the Bottle.

I'm loving this look! It's fitting my mood recently, for better or for worse, and the multichromes are incredible! I still have the other two I want to use for nail art once I can decide exactly what I want to do with them.

Have you picked up the newest KBShimmer multichromes? Which one is your favorite? I'd love to hear from you!

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

  1. Oh, no! You have too many challenging things happen this year, Jen. So sorry to hear about your knee. Hope the surgery is a success, and hope you recover as rapidly as possible. Even though I don't know who/what Krampus is, it's a cute mani. I adore the KB Shimmer shade on the nails without the stamps. Is it Obsidian or is it Much Lava To You??? I am loving KB Shimmer polishes these days

    1. Krampus is the anti St Nicholas who would punish poorly behaved children; I believe he was derived more in central Europe. As for my nails, the ones without stamping is Much Lave To You. That is the one with the holographic spin on the shifting colourway.

  2. I love that base coat. I really need to buy it.

  3. That base shade is sooo pretty! Love deeper sparkly shades!

  4. Very unique mani indeed! What is Krampusnacht? I'm not familiar with it.
