Road to Polish Con: KBShimmer Big Apple of My Eye

Press Sample

Hello! If you didn't know, there will be an awesome convention of over 30 indie brands! I had to miss the one in CHicago in September because I had planned my father's surprise birthday party a year before! The Polish Convention happens twice a year and in April, it will be in Brooklyn. Seeing as I Live in NYC, you know I'll be there! I have the privilege to show you the exclusive Road to Polish Con polish from KBShimmer.

The Big Apple of My Eye: 2 coats plus top coat. This is a squishy jelly red polish filled with holo and red micro metallic glitter. It's squishy and sparkly. It dries down to a bit of a textured look, so top coat helps with making it all smooth. It covers really beautifully. In direct sun, the sparkles are so blinding, more so than in my photos. 

The is the perfect Big Apple red. If you didn't know, New York City is called The Big Apple. Us locals don't call it that, haha, but we have a lot of apples in New York state, and New York City is obviously the biggest city in the state. KBShimmer always has such punny and fun names, so I love this name!

Even in indoor lighting, you can see the sparkle within the rich red base. I didn't have any staining upon removal.

Of course, Big Apple inspired nail polish called for some city nail art! I stamped a skyline that had some stars, but the stars were not etched well, so I dotted some on.

I needed to matte this squishy polish to see how it looked! I topped this with one coat of KBShimmer matte top coat. It's so pretty matte!
