INDIE POLISH LOVE...KBShimmer




Hey guys! Lately I been on a quest of trying different indie polish brands. If your not familiar with indie polish, then let me explain. Indie polish is usually a small business that hand makes nail polish. Also, most of indie polish can not be found in stores but only online. One thing that I love most about indie polish is that many of them are camphor, carmine, dibutyl phthalate (DBP), toluene, and formaldehyde free. Which means they do not contain chemicals in them that can be harmful to you. The most recent indie polish brand that I have tried is KBShimmer. I ordered four polishes off of their Amazon store for $9.25 each. And I know what your probably thinking, does she get everything from Amazon? The answer is yes, I receive about 90% of my nails stuff from Amazon. I am a Amazon Prime member and I take advantage of the free two day shipping that comes with my membership. Keep in mind that not all indie polish lines have Amazon stores. Also, another great way to find different indie polish lines is on social media. My biggest social media account is on Instagram and I always see many different indie polish lines just by browsing. Also, its always good to follow accounts that support indie brands by advertising different collections or sales. In addition, you can check out some of your friends pages and see what indie brands they like to use and recommend. Another thing that I love about indies are the background stories of the owners. For instance, the owner of OOO Polish started her polish line because she was turned away at a nail salon because of the color of her skin. Parrot Polish gets its inspiration from the many colors of parrots and Parakeets feathers. We all have a story to tell. It just so happens that indie polish line owners tell their story through nail polish. Today I have four swatches for you to view from KBShimmer. In the future I hope to try some of their other products such as hand made soaps, mani bombs, and vinyl nail decals. If you would like to find out more about them you can visit their website.


Full Bloom Ahead

Full Bloom Ahead is a white crelly glitter polish. This polish is full of blue, pink, purple, and other color glitters that remind you of spring time. I applied three thin coats and topped it off with a clear top coat.





Blush Money

Blush Money is peachy rose color that shows off gold shimmer in dim light and holographic rainbow that shines in the sunlight. I applied three thin coats and topped it off with a clear top coat.





In Bare Form

Who doesn't love a nude polish? In Bare Form is a soft beige polish with a light linear holographic effect. I applied three thin coats and topped it off with a clear top coat.





Rollin' With The Chromies

This shade was definitely one of my favorites. Rollin With The Chromies is a multichrome linear holographic shifting color polish. It shifts from cyan, blue, to red orange, and many more. I applied three coats and topped it off with a clear top coat. You can also try this polish with one coat over black.

JLB Nail Polish Swatches & Review

Hey guys! Today I have my swatches and review of the 4 piece nail lacquer collection set by JLB Cosmetics. I haven't heard of or tried this brand before. While doing research on this company, I found very little information on them. Therefore, I will just get on with the review. I got this polish set from Ross for $5.99. I normally stay away from buying nail polish sets like these because I'm always skeptical of the quality. When I saw how cute these little polish bottles were I thought I would give them a try. I must admit I've never seen nail polish bottles like these before, they remind me of perfume bottles. Although, they are pleasing to the eye the brushes were a little uncomfortable to use. The brush was short and the top of it felt like a door knob. As a result, it was kind of hard to get a good grip on it. But, I've had more difficult times while painting my nails. In addition, these polishes had a slightly strong smell, but after a while it went away. Howeve…

EA Polish Swacthes & Review

Hello everyone! For today's post I'm going to be sharing with you my swatches and review of indie polish brand EA Polish. I've been following EA Polish on Instagram for quite some time. Therefore, when CEO/Founder Ellyse contacted me to do a review for the company, I was very excited! What intrigued me the most about EA Polish is how it came about. After becoming a mother, Ellyse's friends and family started inquiring about her formally fabulous nails. Not only did Ellyse decided to do something about it, she started her own nail polish company. If anyone knows anything about the joys and sometimes woes of motherhood, is me. I'm pretty sure some of you guys can relate. Being a mom can be challenging at times, we have a 1,000 things to do and so little time to get them done. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy being a wife and a mother. However, it can become overwhelming to the point where you began to neglect the simple things in life. For example, getting your hair d…

Nail Therapy? Let's get Personal!

Hey guys! welcome to my blog. I started this blog a year ago along with when I first started Instagram(IG). I was feeling a little overwhelmed with the blog and my IG page, so I decided to just focus on having fun with IG. Its been almost a year later and let me tell you, its been one heck of a ride. I have had so much fun meeting nice people, participating in nail art challenges, and experimenting with new nail art techniques. I never knew there were so many other people out there like me who loves nail polish. Some people may wonder why would any one love nail polish so much. Well, I love nail polish because there's not a size on the bottle, I don't have to squeeze into it, it just goes right on my nail. I wear nail polish because it may be a special occasion or maybe it just makes me feel relaxed after a long day of taking care of my son and cleaning the house. Here is a picture of some nail art that I did on January 14, 2016. My son Malachi had to have surgery on the next …
