Hello lovelies!

So, yeah, blogging, that’s a thing….also, Indie Fridays? Those used to be a thing. I’ve had these swatches sitting in my folder, edited and everything for months! I actually just had to switch out my Hey, Darling Polish! watermarks for my new Polish Those Nails ones. That’s how long I’ve had these, ugh. But this feature is back and I’m still working through my KBShimmer collection, so onto the polish!

*All swatches shown with one coat of Rica’s Glossy Glam.

First up is A Raisin To Live! I’ll be honest, this post probably won’t be helpful at all because I don’t remember anything about these swatches…welp. I think this is three coats of polish? You might be able to get away with two coats but three adds more depth.

This is a really lovely polish! The purple base leans a little more red which makes this a unique purple in my stash, and the holo glitters make it super pretty! I don’t remember exactly what the formula was like, but it’s KBShimmer, so it was probably awesome haha.

I’m nicknaming this polish the red version of I Got A Crush On BlueDo you guys see how awesome this polish is?! It’s so sparkly! I don’t even like red nail polish but I love this one!

2. Using acrylic paint and a detail brush, dab on little random splotches of paint.

3. Go back in with a different color paint to dab on the centers of the flowers.

4. Paint on leaves.

5. Clean up.
