KB Shimmer - Hex Appeal


Today I wanted my manicure using KB Shimmer Hex Appeal and Maybelline Color Show in Sapphire Siren.

I used two coats of Sapphire Siren to create a deep base.

As you can see I didn't worry too much about making it perfect, because Hex Appeal has a navy translucent base I figured would mask flaws.  This particular Color Show polish is rather thin and I had a hard time keeping it from pooling down at my cuticles.  If you were going to wear just Sapphire Siren you would need 3 coats for sure.

Then I added Hex Appeal and the magic began!

The translucent base gives it a really neat bit of depth, I used two thin coats and then a top coat of KB Shimmers Clearly On Top.  It is shiny and oh so sparkly!  I didn't have to work the glitters on too much, there was a fair amount in every swipe.  I think this would also be pretty over a deep fuchsia base as there are quite a bit of small fuchsia glitters in there. 

Hope you all are having a great week!



  1. I can't believe what a difference it makes! It adds so much depth, it's amazing x

  2. That is so gorgeous!!! I agree it would also be lovely over fuchsia.

  3. I love how the glitter hides all the imperfections, so you don't have to worry about not having a steady hand. Love the final outcome!

  4. Love it! That KBshimmer polish is gorgeous! There are so many polishes I have been wanting to try. I'm gonna need to get rid of some polishes cause my stash is starting to get out of hand.
