KBShimmer Color4Nails Exclusives Review

Press  Sample

Hey there!  Today I have swatches of a couple of polishes from one of my all time favorite brands - KBShimmer.  These two gorgeous shades are exclusive to Color4Nails, a great international stockist. I have been a fan of Color4Nails and KBShimmer since almost the beginning of my nail polish hobby so it's great to see them pairing up for these shades.  Both are very pretty, very wearable colors so I hope you keep reading to hear my thoughts.

40 Great Nail Art Ideas - Inspiration

Hey there!  This week our 40 Great Nail Art Ideas theme is Inspiration.  I remembered that UberChic Beauty has a lot really inspirational phrases on her plates so that's where I headed to be inspired.  After going through all of my plates, I decided that there could be no better inspiration than a simple reminder to be happy.

The Digit-al Dozen does August Birthdays: Pop Art Nails

Hey there!  The Digit-al Dozen has started a new tradition to celebrate each other's birthdays.  Each month, the birthday girls will join up and pick a piece of art to inspire our nails.  Unfortunately I had to miss last month but I'm in for this month.  This month, it is our friends Amanda from Lady Maid Nails and Tamara from Canadian Nail Art Fantatic (my fellow Canadians!) who are celebrating.  Happy birthday ladies!  I hope it turns out to be a great year for you!

The Digit-al Dozen does Negative Space: Day 5 - Orange Tie Dye

Hey there!  Yesterday I mentioned that I tried to combine the fifth and final day of The Digit-al Dozen's Negative Space week with my prompts for 40 Great Nail Art Ideas.  This week we're all doing orange manis and I had the personal prompt of tie dye.  Do you know how hard it is to combine tie dye and negative space and orange?!  Let me tell ya, it's really freaking hard.  But I tried and here's what I came up with.  It did end up growing on me as I wore it but these are two themes I hope to never have to combine again...

The Digit-al Dozen does Negative Space: Day 4 - Negative Space Stamping

Hey there!  Today is totally my cheat day for this month's Digit-al Dozen theme.  We're doing negative space manis which should mean there's naked nail showing but, since I'm always going on about how much I like negative space stamping, particularly UberChic Beauty's negative space images, how could I NOT include one this week.  Plus, as a confession, I may have done this one back in February and just hadn't posted it yet.  Since I've been so busy lately, having to do one less mani this month definitely made my decision for me!

The Digit-al Dozen does Negative Space: Day 3 - Triangles and Stripes

Hey there!  Today's Digit-al Dozen negative space look was created all willy nilly.  I'm not sure I knew what I wanted to do but I had some triangle vinyls that I knew I could use so I whipped this up. It doesn't look particularly creative so I'm sure it was inspired by something I saw on Pinterest along the way but I didn't make note of any one particular mani so, if this is something you've done, I'm so sorry I didn't credit you!  Please comment and I'll be sure to edit this if it was yours that I've drooled over.

The Digit-al Dozen does Negative Space: Day 2 - Mosaic Nails

Hey there!  It's the second day of the Digit-al Dozen Negative Space theme.  Today's nail art was created while relaxing at the cabin during my vacation last month.  It was shortly after the amazing @ane_li passed away and I was devouring her instagram photos.  I was inspired by a mosaic look that she had done ages ago and decided to try my hand at a freehand mosaic myself.  Unfortunately I didn't have many tools at the cabin but I still think these turned out not so bad.
