KBShimmer: Unicorn Pee Collection 


POLISH EMERGENCY! POLISH EMERGENCY! In fact it’s sooo polish emergency, I’m currently not napping or couch lounging or being distracted by potato chips within grabby distance.  GUYS. I’m a proper blogger today!  Send bonus points!  And Leonardo, for safety. 

So in an effort to tell you about things before the things are no longer the things, here’s a very quick blog post that I swear better not be moot by the time I get to the end. Cuz polish is flying off shelves and I don’t carpal tunnel for no dadgum reason. Or skip naps.

One word:  UNICORN PEE. Okay, two words. OMG, now is not the time for math. Check out this insane collection from KBShimmer:


Christy got a hold of some unicorn pee, so now we get a hold of these beauties!  Unless they are sold out, which isn’t even all that impossible at the moment. Cuz for some reason, UP makes all of us go a whooooole lotta elbow jabby.  I mean, you don’t get to Crazy Nail Lady by being an actual lady. And you don’t get no Unicorn Pee by taking your damn sweet time. 

In other words, FOCUS. And have your wallets handy. Cuz here’s what you’re buying:


DESCRIPTION:  A deepened fuchsia-leaning purple jelly with color shifting shimmer

OPACITY:  Three coats unless you like a bit of see-thru at the edges


DESCRIPTION:  A deepened teal-leaning green jelly with color shifting shimmer

OPACITY:  Three coats gives you a deeper color like my swatches show here, but two coats will show a better pee payoff. 

Side note:  I just said Pee Payoff and didn’t even flinch or gross myself out or nothing. Clearly, we’re in the midst of some serious business


DESCRIPTION:  A deep midnight blue bordering on blurple jelly with color shifting shimmer

OPACITY:  Three coats here too; color appears mostly purple to me, but what do I know, really? I mean, when you’re constantly keeping yourself from licking your own fingers, having an opinion that makes sense isn’t tops on the list. 


DESCRIPTION:  A fiery copper red shimmery topper that shifts orange/green/gold depending on the angle; layered over black for this swatch

OPACITY:  I did two coats on top of black for maximum drool effect; you can also layer on top of the other polishes to amp up the pee. 

OMG, what?!  Shut up, brain. 


Time to spend some money!  All four polishes are available now from various sources, but stock is extremely limited. DO 👏🏼 NOT 👏🏼 SLEEP 👏🏼 ON 👏🏼 THIS!  Otherwise, I am var var concerned about your brain.

Where to buy:



Harlow & Co

Rainbow Connection 

Cost is $12 USD, $14.49 CAD or £11 if you’re fancy. 

How’s that for thorough?  Someone’s got her blogger pants on today!  As opposed to later when there’s no pants.  Clearly, I am the SEXIEST PERSON IN THE WORLD.  Or laziest. Either way.

Go get your pretties!  Later, loves!


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.

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!


KBShimmer: Summer Vacation Collection 


Current status: sitting in the bathtub, writing a blog, eating a Schlotzsky’s sandwich.  Seriously, if I could be even a skosh more overachieve-y, I might be President of the Universe by now.  Which, considering how well I manage my own life on a daily basis, it might not be too shabby of a deal.  You get pajamas, and you get pajamas, and YOU get pajamas … Happy days ahead for everyone!

A most exciting blog for you today!  I received this glorious swatch pack from Christy with KBShimmer, and I swear, did Leonardo just walk in here and hand me a Starbucks?  Might as well have.  Cuz BEST DAY EVER doesn’t even begin to describe this scenario.

And then SOMEONE tossed a bunch of glowing holo flakies on everything, and we all just died a thousand tiny deaths.  Ugh.  Ladylike composure = completely out the window.


See?!  How we all gonna act normal in here now?  The flakies got me guys.  They got me good.

So this is the new Summer Vacation collection, a set of 8 beachy, rainbow-y, shimmery shades with this cool inner glow to them that’ll have you lounging on couches with your drool bucket, smelling salts and 27 levels of sexy, at minimum.  Who’s ready to spend some money today?  Every dadgum one of us, that’s who.  Lessss go!

Rundown of the colors first:


DESCRIPTION:  A raspberry pink base with glowing holo flakies and a sizzling copper shimmer


DESCRIPTION:  A coppery orange base with glowing holo flakies and rose gold shimmer


DESCRIPTION:  A lemon yellow base with glowing holo flakies and orange leaning copper shimmer


DESCRIPTION:  A kiwi green base with glowing holo flakies and grass green shimmer


DESCRIPTION:  A deep teal leaning turquoise base with glowing holo flakies and blue shimmer


DESCRIPTION:  An orchid base with glowing holo flakies and violet shimmer


DESCRIPTION:  An indigo leaning grape base with glowing holo flakies and inky blue to deep purple shifting shimmer


DESCRIPTION:  An onyx black base with glowing holo flakies with blue to purple shifting shimmer 


Each of these polishes had a consistent formula, very smooth, easy to apply, no gloop! I did three coats for my swatches even though two would probably be just fine for most of you. But because I have a nail polish problem, I always end up doing more coats than necessary. CAN’T.  STOP. POLISHING. Story of my life. 

The colors really do have a glowy property to them, especially the darker shades. I didn’t even know glowing holo flakies was a thing, but imma need a trillion more bottles, pretty much. Cuz when I love something, I do it in the most smother-y, stalker-y way possible.

I’ve shown you swatches in indirect lighting, under the lamps and under the mood lights so you can get a feel for how these polishes look in multiple situations. The color shifts and shimmery surprises are drool-worthy and noodle leg-enducing.  Might also cause moan-y throat noises to come out, so make sure you schedule things according. Moans during work functions might violate some sort of HR thing, I dunno.

So good news, guys! You’re buying allllll this!  Here’s the deets:

Full Summer Vacation collection retails for $70

Single bottles are $9.25 (but this point is moot, obviously; all eight, in the cart they go!)

Oh, and they’re available now so there’s no excuses. Click here for shopping!  Then go revel in your good decisioning.

I’ll be showing more KBShimmer goodies soon, so stayed tuned.  Cuz those 7,397 blogs left to write?  Barely a dent. One of these days, I’ll figure out how to be a Superhuman.

Later, loves!
