KBShimmer Turns 5 Celebration Duo

* I received the follow products in exchange for my honest review by KBShimmer.

A big congratulations to KBShimmer who has recently turned 5 years old! I've said it before and I will say it again, but KBShimmer is one of my all time favorite handmade indies. I'm so excited for KBShimmer and all the success it has had. KBShimmer has a lot of fun things in store in honor of their anniversary! Currently, KBShimmer is having a 20% off site wide sale from 8/08 until Wednesday, August 14th.  The other awesome thing is KBShimmer has released celebratory duo of polishes--The Grape Beyond and Would Jubliee It (Yes, the 20% off sale includes these polishes!)

The Grape Beyond
The Grape Beyond w/ topcoat
The Grape Beyond is a medium grape matte with a subtle turquoise shimmer.

Would Jubilee It?
Would Jubilee It? is a mix of fuchsia, aqua, silver circle glitters, and sapphire and turquoise hex glitters in a clear base.

Colors: I think the color of the polishes is great. I love The Grape Beyond, it is a very flattering and versatile purple. The turquoise shimmer in it is a great addition that makes the polish specials. This polish looks nice matte or with top coat.  Would Jubilee It? is a great mix of cool-toned color glitters that is bright and fun.

Formula: The formulas on these were good. I used 3 coats with The Grape Beyond and 2 coats over the base with Would Jubilee It? I was really impressed with the formula in The Grape Beyond. I always have found matte polishes to not be very self leveling, this was the opposite with the The Grape Beyond. This evened out the nail perfectly without leaving any noticeable lines or or brushstrokes!

Price: During this 20% off sale that goes through Wednesday (8/14), these are $7.00, after that they will be $8.75. You can purchase these on the KBShimmer website.

Overall: This is a great duo! I love the colors and the formula. This isnt' surprising when it comes to KBShimmer though. I continue to be pleased and impressed with KBShimmer products.

My Rating: 5 out of 5 Paint Splatters
