KBShimmer Spot Sign

*Press Sample*

Hi everyone! I've got a really cool glitter polish to share with you today from KBShimmer! KBShimmer Spot Sign is part of their Winter 2014 Collection, but it was released a bit early so it is available for purchase now in the KBShimmer shop. This is the first polish that I've ever seen that has leopard spot glitters, so I was excited to try it out!

Spot Sign is a clear-based topcoat filled with holographic silver microglitter, black hexes and dots of various sizes, and black leopard spot glitters. For this mani I used 1 dabbed coat of Spot Sign over KBShimmer You're So Shellfish (because I love leopard spots over brights!).

The base glitters spread easily, but I would recommend to place the leopard glitters individually because of their size and shape. When you place the glitters, take care to place them in such a way that they sit well with the curve of your nailbed so that they will be flat. Also, I did find 1 or 2 glitters that were a tad bent on the end, so I just did not use those because they will stick up off of the nail bed. When topcoating, you definitely will want to use a thicker topcoat because they are thicker/larger glitters. So in essence: know that this glitter is going to require a bit more work than a normal glitter, but it is so cool that it is worth the effort! It really did not take me much more time to apply it than a regular glitter polish, I was just particular about my application. It's such a fun look and you get to have a cool leopard spotted look even if you aren't necessarily a nail artist!

KBShimmer products are available from their website as well as from Harlow & Co. (Canada).  Be sure to follow them on Facebook and Instagram for updates on new collections and to see swatches of all of their polishes. 

So what are your thoughts on the leopard spot glitters? Will you be picking this one up? Thanks for looking everyone!
