KBShimmer High-Rise to the Occasion, Ehmkay Nails Collaboration

Press Sample

Today is a great day! It's my father's birthday and later, I'll celebrate with him! My father means the world to me and this year was a milestone for him for so many reasons. I'm so happy to celebrate with him later. It's why I also waited to reveal my collaboration shade with KBShimmer!! The Fall 2017 KBShimmer collection is a special one, and it features 12 bloggers! I was so honored when Christy asked me if I would be interested in this collaboration. Of course! I'm really bad at custom polishes. I just don't know what I want! But Christy nailed my inspiration and I can say, she perfectly brought a special moment to life!

Remember when I mentioned I wore a polish on my vacation in July that I couldn't share yet?! It was this one! I wore it for 9 straight days before any major chips, so, the formula is awesome!

I gave Christy a bunch of photographs that I took from the holidays in NYC. I think NYC during the holidays is so magical. Growing up here, I'm very much immune to how special NYC can be. But the holidays--you can't deny it. My boyfriend and I have been going to the Rockefeller Christmas Tree since 2009. It's basically our little tradition. Last year, we decided to go on the last day, right before they turned off the lights for the season. It was so cool to watch. I snapped this picture RIGHT before the 9pm cutoff!


So I knew I wanted to have a steel grey base to my polish to represent all the buildings of NYC. Rockefeller always has this purple uplighting on the building and it represents the glow you see all around NYC during the season, hence the shimmer. Lastly, I needed the rainbow flakes for the twinkling lights that are everywhere. Didn't Christy nail it?! It's all in this polish.

High-Rise to the Occasion: 2 coats plus top coat.  The official description for my polish from KBShimmer: "Michelle from Ehmkay Nails wanted a polish that expressed her photos of the holidays in NYC. The steel of the high-rise buildings, the twinkle of the holiday decor, and the glow of the violet up lighting inspired this crelly polish. A light gray color, this polish has a soft violet shimmer, while pops of rainbow metallic flakes give this shade perfectly NYC look." I love everything about this polish!

In the sunlight, that gorgeous violet shimmer comes out! It's really very prominent in person!

I would never think of a polish that wouldn't look amazing matte, because I'm obsessed with matte top coat. The rainbow flakes are so perfect matte. It almost makes the grey base look lavender.

  12. So totally nailed you inspiration photo and the two of you created a gorgeous polish together. Seeing the Rockafeller tree is something I've had on my bucket list since high-school, maybe one of these day's I'll get to cross that item off. I hope you had a wonderful time celebrating with your dad!
