KB Shimmer - Neon Me

So I've always veered away from glitter polishes in the past but lately, I seem to be attracted to them more and more.  I've never used a white glitter crelly so I thought who else should I start with other than the Queen of white glitter crellies, that is KB Shimmer.  I choose Neon me because I love the neon spots but it's not too in your face either.

The KB Shimmer website describes Neon Me as, "Like the summer days of the 80’s, this crelly is jam packed with neon. Small and a scattering of micro circle glitters in a rainbow of shocking shades pop against the off-white background."

I used an undercoat of white polish as I loathe Visible Nail Line (VNL) and I can't bear to spend time painting my nails only to be driven nuts by seeing my nail line.  So, to avoid that, I did one coat of a white polish after my base coat.

So these photos show one coat of white polish and two coats of Neon Me, with a glossy top coat.  The neon glitter was easy to apply, I didn't have to fish around in the bottle to find the glitter and placement was pretty perfect just with regular application.  This was really easy and took no magic on my part.

So here are a couple of combo pics I like to do.  All in all, I'm really happy with this polish, I like it very much. It'll be perfection for Summer and may well be in my travelling bag when we go on hols!

If you want to grab a bottle of this in the UK, it's available right now on the Rainbow Connection website at £9.00 a bottle which is a good price for a handmade polish that is so easy to apply.  If you do try it out, I'd love to hear what you think. 

BTW interesting fun fact - Christy Rose, the owner of KB Shimmer, was a soaping friend of mine from years back when we both ran soaping companies. It seems we've both changed our love of colour and design to polish!
