KBShimmer Eyes White Shut

 Press Sample 

Ever since Cult Nails announced they were closing, I have been hoping to find another "holy grail" white - you know, that perfect 1-2 coater that is NOT streaky or messy. Thankfully, the KBShimmer Spring 2015 collection included this beautiful white creme called Eyes White Shut. Will it hold up to my beloved Tempest?

For this manicure, I used a base coat of Duri Rejuvacote, 2 coats of polish and finished with KBShimmer Clearly On Top. The formula was a little messy for me but with careful cleanup, I was able to see the results below.

This photo was taken in my light box. LOOK HOW PRETTY IT IS. If you're in the East Coast USA, you may recognize this as the tons of snow you're getting. I'm really happy that it's looking pretty fantastic though - no streaks, super opaque.

This photos was taken in the shade but you'd barely know it! It looks so pretty and clean. It's definitely going to be repurchased when I run out of it and Cult Nails Tempest.

This was taken in indirect light under my porch. You can tell just how smoothly it applied and even though I had to get into my cuticles, you can't really tell.

This is also in indirect light but indoors. What else can you say? I'm happy with it and I do know this will be repurchased. I plan to use it a lot this summer with neons.

Zoya Sage

Nothing To Disclose

Ready for the grand finale of the Zoya Naturel Satins collection? This is Zoya Sage - a mossy sage green. I really thought this would be my favorite as I have been pulling for more greens lately but Tove stole my heart.

I used a base of Zoya Anchor, 2 coats of polish and no top coat. The coverage on this was pretty awesome too - basically a one coater.

Well again I didn't have any sunlight so here is my light box. This is actually a really nice color! I'm not sure how often I'd wear it and it would definitely be a nubbin color for me but it's a very pretty sage green.

Here in the shade, the colors do play nicely with my skin. I'm a happy camper! I'm surprised that these last two have been my favorite but here they are. Sage and Tove. Krystal loves.

Finally here in indirect light (which almost looks like sunlight but trust me, it's cloudy out there), I'm able to just enjoy this polish. It's such a pretty little sage number. If you can only buy two polishes get this and Tove.

Zoya Tove

Nothing To Disclose

Heading into the finale of the Zoya Naturel Satins collection and today I have Tove - a misty slate grey which leans more blue to me. I sometimes have to seriously question where they get these names. As you may recall, Zoya names all their polishes after women. The only Tove I've ever heard of is a singer which a very interesting song called Habits (Stay High). I know she has other songs and she's currently touring but yeah, I just know her for this one crazy little song.

I used a base coat of Zoya Anchor, 2 coats of polish and no top coat. The formula was pretty much a one coater here too but two thin coats is always best for me. I was very happy with the coverage.

The sun has decided to go away so this photo is from my light box. I'm absolutely in love with this color. It's not my perfect grey but the hint of blue is just SO perfect for me. I'm seriously considering wearing this for my upcoming baby shower. LOVE.

Here in the shade, it's definitely a dusty little number. Still love it.

LOOK AT THIS. This is what really made me fall in love with this polish. Seriously, I'd paint a room this color if I could because I do love it. I seriously see myself reaching for this polish over and over this year. Hands down my favorite of the collection.
