KBShimmer Witch Way?

I tried very hard to make it through this season without buying any indie Halloween-themed polishes, but the swatches I’ve seen of KBShimmer Witch Way? have made it impossible to ignore.

I finally broke down and bought it, and here it is. Amazing. Beautiful. So happy to have it.

KBShimmer Witch Way? indie halloween nail polish

KBShimmer Witch Way? is a dark purple jelly base loaded with holographic small hex and silver micro glitter. It’s just really vampy and fun.

These pictures are of three coats, plus one coat of Poshe fast-dry top coat. It went on easily. The first coat was a little patchy and the second wasn’t quite enough for opacity on every nail, but the third evened everything out.

I didn’t wait for it to completely dry before adding Poshe, but it seemed to dry with an almost sticky or tacky look to it, not matte or satin by any means, but something just shy of full gloss, so I definitely wanted the top coat. With that, it’s perfect.

KBShimmer Witch Way? is currently available at KBShimmer.com.

What Halloween-themed polishes could you not live without?

KBShimmer Band Geek

I recently went away on vacation, and when I came back, I had two awesome pieces of nail mail waiting for me (best way to end a vacation!). One was a quartet of A England polishes I nabbed during their recent sale, and the other was this dark beauty, KBShimmer Band Geek.

KBShimmer Band Geek indie nail polish

Full disclosure: yes, I was in band, so of course had to get this one based on name alone. But also my old high school colors were black and gold (Go Hornets!) so it also hit fairly close to home in that regard as well. Will pause here to say that I also was a varsity cheerleader, so a bit of a weird mash-up, I know.

But back to KBShimmer Band Geek: I love, love, love it!

KBShimmer Band Geek indie nail polish

It’s a very complex, layered, deep polish with a black jelly base and gold, silver and bronze glitter. You can actually stare into it and see all of the different glitters at different levels on your nails. It’s crazy.

I found this very easy to apply, and it had great coverage. I’ve been trying a lot of different indies recently and have had some trouble with the formulas and glitter placement, but not with Band Geek: little to no glitter dabbing/placement needed.

KBShimmer Band Geek indie nail polish

This is two coats of KBShimmer Band Geek, one coat of Gelous and one coat of Poshe.

KBShimmer is sold on Etsy and Harlow, plus KBShimmer has a new fall collection coming out on September 1 so set some of that polish budget aside.
