KBShimmer Bejeweled


Hi loves! Thank god it's Friday! I've been busy at work all week so now it is time for some well deserved rest I think :). What are you up to this weekend?

Today I am showing you my first KBShimmer polish! This is Bejeweled, and I ordered it together with Shipwreck and Hex Appeal, both are still untried. I had been eyeing Bejeweled for some time now, and I always imagined the glitter over the basecolor I now indeed used for this manicure. This is 2 coats of H&M Notoriously Beautiful, topped with one dabbed coat of Bejeweled. The reason I dabbed is because it is quite loaded with glitter and brushing made the glitter clump together.

I am still not sure if I like the endresult. I might have to give Bejeweled another try in a glitter gradient manicure I think.

How would you combine this glitter? Any recommendations for a base color?

    I've been eyeing Bejeweled for a while now too but keep skipping it in favor of their jelly based glitters. I really like this combo! I would wear it over a lime or chartreuse green. Steffel also used it over Orly Royal Navy and it looked beautiful too.

  5. It seems to have some copper in it... Sometimes I'm surprised by glitters over browns, tapes, or nudes, so I'd experiment with those if I had Bejeweled in my KBS stash!

  8. Oh yes, it sounds pretty wicked over something like OPI Who The Shrek Are You! I'll look up that combo with Royal Navy too :).
