With my last purchase from Harlow & Co. I finally snagged a few KBShimmer polishes. One of them was I Got A Crush On Blue, which has been on my wish list ever since I saw Nicole from YoungWildAndPolished do a glitter sandwich with it.
KBShimmer - I Got A Crush On Blue is a navy blue jelly with "holographic glitters ranging from micro to extra large in size". Because it is a jelly, it comes out much lighter on the nails compared to the bottle. The nail polish is, however, buildable and you can get it opaque with three coats. In the pictures there still is some visible nail line, but I promise my camera makes it look worse than it actually is! You could also apply just one or two layers over a base color. I prefer wearing this on its own, though, because it has more depth that way and the glitters seem to be floating on the nails.
Formula on this was amazing! It was very easy to work with and it spread evenly. I did have to fish a bit for the larger hexes, even though I put the bottle upside down for a while before painting my nails. I also love that the large hexes lie flat on the nail and do not stick out. I finished everything off with one layer of KBShimmer Clearly On Top (finally a fast-drying topcoat that does not shrink on me - at all, whoohoo!).
All in all, I Got A Crush On Blue has everything I am looking for in a polish - great color and formula, it's a bliss to apply and it dries fast and shiny. I definitely see why her creations are so popular and this surely won't be my last KBShimmer polish!
Thanks for coming by!
