KBShimmer ~ Up and Cunning



KBShimmer ~ Up and Cunning
Teal linear holo

Up and Cunning is from the Autumn 2014 collection. I knew it had to be mine from the first moment I laid eyes on it. I was so happy when it finally arrived in the mail!

The formula is great, the polish just glides on and covers in two easy coats. The drying time between coats is good. And seriously – this polish is gorgeous, I love everything about it!! I’d say that KBShimmer should make more holos – I’d definitely buy them!

Take a look at two coats and no topcoat:


Is that a me-colour or what? I’d say it is!


I decided to make some dots on it. I made white dots with Savina’s French White and purple dots with KBShimmer’s Quick and Flirty. I only made dots on the middle of each nail and made sure that the dots were various sizes. I applied a layer of topcoat when I was happy with the dots, and here’s my final mani:


Mmm… I don’t ever want to take this off :D


Here’s a picture taken in low lights. I still love the colours!


The pretties lined up:



I love dotticures and this one is no exception. It’s so cool that it’s possible to create so pretty manis just by adding dots.

Do you like this as much I as do?


Number of coats: 2
Drying time: Good
Finish: Linear holo
Overall impression: I love everything about this polish. The quality, the colour, the rainbows…
Buy again: Yes

  1. That most certainly is a soooo you polish - even I (the not so teal happy person) like it a lot - and it's just perfect with the dots!
    I agree, if they made more holo's like this - I'm shopping too!
