KBShimmer ~ Ruby

KBShimmer ~ Ruby
Warm blue toned red loaded with metallic flakes and a hint of holographic dust

I love shimmery and glittery reds – you probably already know that. It took me a long while to buy “Ruby”, which is a part of the Birthstone Collection from Summer 2016. The swatches I saw were so different that I was confused: I wasn’t quite sure whether this was a polish for me or not.

But it is! It’s a lovely shimmery and glittery red. The formula is fantastic and easy to work with. I used two easy coats for full coverage and the drying time was really good.

The design I stamped on is from the stamping plate UR Beautiful-18 and I stamped with a regular black stamping polish from El Corazón.

Look how pretty it all turned out! The photo is taken in ordinary daylight, no sun.

And this is “Ruby” on its own; two coats and no topcoat yet. It’s as if there is pink shimmer in it as well.
