KBShimmer ~ Rust No One
Orangy red linear holo
I thought I might as well show you the other KBShimmer I bought from the Autumn 2014 collection, Rust No One. I wasn’t quite sure whether to get this one or not, since the “Rust” in the name made me think of Autumn-y colours, and my skin tone isn’t fantastic with that colour scheme.
But since I’ve recently developed a love for orange polishes I thought I might as well bite the bullet and buy this one as well. Up and Cunning (that I showed you yesterday) was thrilled to be able to travel with her sister, so that’s perfect, really.
Anyway – I went for a Hawaiian mani this time. I know it’s winter in the northern hemisphere where I live, but there are definitely places where it’s warm now. So there you have it! :) I’m going to show you my final mani first:
See? Double stamping, Hawaiian flowers, leaves and hand signs!
The base colour, Rust No One, is an easy to work with polish. It’s almost a one coater. I applied two, and it makes a liiiiittle difference in depth, so I recommend two coats. Drying time is fast, no worries in that department. Here’s what two coats and no topcoat look like:
I must admit that I am really happy I bought this. It’s a lovely orange!
Here is what it looks like in my light box. It doesn’t look rusty at all, I’m very pleased!
I stamped with red first – a motif I found on the Q-girl010 stamping plate, and I stamped with Sally Hansen’s Insta-Dri “Rapid Red”. Here is that step:
I like the way the red lines enhances the red in the KBShimmer polish!
Then I stamped the flowers, the leaf and the hand sign – I found those motifs on Moyou London’s stamping plate Tourist Collection-17.
This mani is not very typical for me, but I like it anyway. The colour isn’t my favourite colour, but then again, they can’t all be. I wore it for a day, and I wouldn’t have if I didn’t like it.
