Pimp My Pride – KB Shimmer

Happy Memorial Day if you live in the States! We’re celebrating our long weekend a few hours away with my mom. This is always a fairly meaningful holiday in my family. So many of us have served or are serving in all branches of the military – uncles, both grandpas, cousins.


A rare snap of my stoic paternal Grandpa smiling in his Air Force uniform.

In honor of the holiday, I put on this patriotic crelly glitter from KB Shimmer.


Just like most crellies, you can get it opaque in 2-3 coats – this is 2. Obviously I needed 3. Great, smooth self-leveling formula.

Perversion of a Butterfly – Vivid Lacquer


I have been buying and loving Vivid’s stamping plates for a couple of years, so when they had a sale, I had to try out some of the polishes as well.

This light lavender crelly has gold, silver, and purple metallic hex glitters, tiny silver glitters, and large purple butterflies. It gets opaque in 3 coats annd requires a bit of fishing to get those butterflies. But altogether a lovely polish.
