KBShimmer ~ Thistle be the Day



KBShimmer ~ Thistle be the Day
Pale lavender linear holo

Thistle be the Day is from the Spring 2016 collection just like Blue-d Lines that I showed you earlier. 

Thistle be the Day is pale, paler than I usually go for, but I bought it because the bottle is full of amazing rainbows. The formula is good and covers well – I ended up with two coats for this mani. The drying time is good.

So, this is two coats and no topcoat taken in the sun:


Aren’t those rainbows just fantastic!? I love them!
This is what the polish looks like in the shade. It’s obvious that it isn’t my colour at all.


I spiced it up with nail vinyls and a polish from Black Bird called Holo for Yolo. It isn’t holo at all though, it a purple to blue duochromatic shimmer :D It actually wasn’t perfect for this mani because the coverage wasn’t fantastic, but never mind, now I’ve tried it.

This is my final mani, including a layer of topcoat.


Not quite the effect I was after but I like it nonetheless.

Number of coats: 2
Drying time: Good
Finish: Linear holo
Overall impression: I love the rainbows!

Dance Legend Anna Gorelova ~ December



Dance Legend Anna Gorelova ~ December
Silver holo with golden shimmer

I still haven’t got my camera back from the repair shop and I must admit that I miss it – and it feels a little bit like I’m losing my creativity. I don’t like that.

So today I thought I would play a bit with glitter. I started out with two coats of December from Dance Legend’s Anna Gorelova collection. Easy to work with, dries fast, no complaints from me. Then I applied some cheap star nail vinyls from ebay, applied a layer of slow drying topcoat and sprinkled glitter on the topcoat before I removed the vinyls. The glitter is from W7 and is called Cosmic Nail Dust.

I think it turned out really pretty.


I wasn’t quite sure how the glitter would react to topcoat so all the pictures are taken before the topcoating.


I didn’t have direct sun either. It’s a great silver holo nonetheless.


Polish and glitter:


I topcoated the whole thing after my little photo session and the glitter didn’t have any problems with it, so that’s what I’ll do in future.

PS. Thanks to my sweet boyfriend for letting me fill his phone up with nail pictures  - and he doesn’t even get upset when they all auto-backup to dropbox either!! :D

Number of coats: 2
Drying time: Very good
Finish: Holo with shimmer
Overall impression: Great base polish
Buy again: Yes

Darling Diva ~ Francis



Darling Diva ~ Francis
Teal linear holo with blue holo flame

Francis is from the Deadpool collection just like Sexy Motherfucker that I showed you in this post. LINK

The formula is great and I didn’t experience any issues with application. I used two coats to get rid of any visible nail line. The drying time is good.

So here’s two coats and no topcoat taken with flash:


This picture is taken in the shade. Isn’t the colour just nice?


I like the colour but I wanted to brighten it up a bit. I stamped with Mint Green, which is a stamping polish from El Corazón. The motif is from Marianne-Nails stamping plate No. 119.

Tadaa, here it is, including a layer of topcoat:


Number of coats: 2
