KBShimmer: Hella Holo Customs August 2017 Trio


Okay, for real this time.  Sleep, I am coming for you.  As in, BEFORE midnight.  Cuz while so far I’ve been able to function pretty well on 4-and-a-half hours of sleep each night, I have a feeling I’m one more late night blogging sesh away from losing all ladylike composure.  I mean, I took a nap WHILE putting Doritos in my mouth. What the hell kind of rude shenanigans is that?!  Sleeping while eating CHIPS, of all things.  Why not while doing dishes, or while being forced to wear pants to go buy groceries?  Ugh.  LAME.

In other words, I need my rest.  Cuz putting food in my mouth with my eyes closed means NO ONE is supervising, and the accidental ingestion of poison is lurking.  Those little brown spots on chips?  Poison.  Two M&Ms fused together?  Poison.  Gravy is nowhere to be seen?  POISON.  I need to see my food before I eat it, cuz spending my night googling symptoms on the internet doesn’t get me much sleep either.

Aside from all that, though, this is my third blog in a row about potato chips, so… Someone needs to come save me from me.  Except don’t, or I will cut you.

GUYS. Pretty things are happening!  I received some gorgeous polishes from the Hella Holo Customs + KBShimmer collaboration to share with you today, and trust me when I tell you how much you’re gonna need these.  Do you like holo?  Do you like flakies and shimmer and glitter and happiness?  Well, then you’re about to have a var var good day.  Take a look!


Do you hear angels?  Cuz I hear angels.

Each month, the Hella Holo Customs group on Facebook features two indie brands who create exclusive custom holographic polishes based on inspiration photos submitted by the members of the group.  This month, one of the brands is KBShimmer, and I’m so so excited for the opportunity to swatch for Christy once again.  And when this trio arrived, it was all I could do to stay upright.  Noodle legs alert!  You have been warned.

Quick rundown of the colors, then I’ll meet you at the bottom.  Lessss go!


DESCRIPTION:  A softly tinted pink base with glowing holo flakies and a turquoise shimmer

OPACITY:  Two coats, three if you’re crazy; obviously I did three

Welp, I’m done.  All of a sudden, things just got suuuuuper pass-out-y in here.  Do you see those flakies, actually GLOWING?  Christy’s a magician, I’m officially convinced.

This polish is slightly sheer and can be layered over a pink cream for extra opacity, but I think it looks pretty opaque all by itself.  Of course, my nails are little shorties, so what do I know, really?  I went to a Guns ‘N Roses concert a couple weeks ago, and I clapped like I was a fancy lady attending an opera cuz CLEARLY I don’t know how to do things right.  

What I mean is, if you have longer nails, you may need more layers.


DESCRIPTION:  A periwinkle leaning blue base with holo glitters, pink shimmery flake and blue shifting shimmer

OPACITY:  Two coats

Now this one is ridiculous.  The bling in here is insanely good and about 2.5 seconds away from ending up on all the surfaces.  COMPLETELY NORMAL BEHAVIOR, if you’re curious.

Look at that blue shimmer.  LOOK. AT. IT.  We’re all about to get 27 levels of unattractive, I just know it.  Cuz there’s only so much sexy to go around while holding a drool bucket.


DESCRIPTION:  An aqua leaning blue holographic with bit of copper and gold for sparkle

OPACITY:  Two coats

Top photo = well and good.  Bottom photo = dear God, what just happened to my body?!  Nothing ladylike is happening after this, I’m sure of it.  It’s a holo EXTRAVAGANZA! to like, the trillionth degree.  Proof:

Under normal, indirect lighting it still looks pretty, but the blue flame in this polish?  DEAD.  And you see those little specks of coppery gold?  MORE DEAD.  Y’all, we will never be the same again.


This trio is available now thru September 5 only, so now is not the time for lounging on couches.  Get on it, boo boos!  Cuz no one wants to wake up on September 6, sad and polish-less.

To order, you must be a member of the Hella Holo Customs group on Facebook.  Here is your official To-Do List:

1.  Join the group by clicking here.

2.  Find the August 2017 order links ORRRRRRRR, you can just click here.  GUYS!  I found it FOR you.  Counts as effort.  Also bonus points.  Best blogger ever, is what you’re thinking.

Cost for each polish is $10 and that’s basically free, so if y’all wanna toss like 18,000 bottles in the cart, well that’s just logical sense.  Cuz who’s in the mood to hoard a crap ton of nail polish?  Every DADGUM one of us, to be clear.

Some linky loos.  Connect with KBShimmer:

As always, thanks for reading all the way to the bottom.  And for continuing to read all the way to the bottom, at the very least, so I’m not in here talking to myself like a crazy person.

Later, loves!
