KBShimmer: Holo-Day Collection

Standard

• A PRESS SAMPLE FANDANGO •

The new Christmas tree arrived today.  After the Tree Punching Incident of 2016, it felt nice to start fresh with something so lovely. Hubby bought a top of the line version, a 5-star frustration-free model that came with gloves so you can fluff the branches without drying your hands out. Annnnnd a remote so you can turn it’s lights on from the comfort of your near-comatose couch lounging position. YOU GUYS.  It’s a tree for a princess!  A Trophy Wife’s dream!  Seriously, y’all, I swear they know who lives here.  I mean, if there was a set of new jammies in the box, no one would be surprised.

SHALL WE READ MORE? WE SHALL!

KBShimmer: Fall 2017 Collaboration Collection 

Standard

Fitness app step count update: 297. Which means OFFICIALLY skinny may never come.  Ugh.  What’s a girl gotta do to lose some weight around here?  I mean, I just spent the past 7 hours straight painting and re-painting my nails, which is basically EFFORT to like the trillionth degree.  And despite the fact that 97.8465% of it was done while sitting in a chair, if body parts are moving then exercise is happening and so bonus points are coming in case you didn’t know.  Preferably a little quicker, though, cuz there’s a Full House marathon lurking, and well, the shows don’t watch themselves.  Nor gets a blog written, but that is beside the point.

Let’s talk polish! I received a ginormous swatch package from Christy with KBShimmer to share with you today.  There’s something for everyone in here, so y’all get your wallets out and your focus face on; it’s about to get suuuuper pass-out-y in about 2.5 seconds.  Lessss go!

ALL OF THIS. IMMEDIATELY.

For one, I don’t know how I managed to pose in exact symmetry a mere 14 times in a row, but that collage is LEGIT.  Seriously, the overachieve-y is at an all-time high right now.  Worth half a horn toot, at least.

Secondly, OMG who’s buying these?!  Gah!  KBShimmer does it again, gettin’ us all drool-y and unattractive.  If you haven’t jumped on the bandwagon yet, this right here is a good place to start.  18,000 bottles, and in they cart they go.  Weeee!

SO.  Fall 2017 Collaboration Collection, designed in conjunction with some awesome swatchers and bloggers.  YOU NEED.  The end.

Working with another person to create a polish based on their vision, their inspiration photo, is always one of the hardest but most rewarding things we do. That moment when you know you matched what was in their head, that is the best!

— Christy Rose, KBShimmer

The first two polishes shown are a couple of Christy’s own creations; after that, it’s a blogger EXTRAVAGANZA!  Plus (and because I, too, am a dadgum professional), I typed out all the blog links for ultra carpal tunnel-like scenarios.  Soooo, you better get to clickin’ cuz it’s the right thing to do.

Here’s your as-quick-as-14,767-polishes-can-be rundown of colors.  Enjoy!
