Showgirl is one of 5 KBShimmer polishes I have to show you over the next few days. I swatched all of them at once and then and picked my favorite to show you first...
Isn't she pretty? This is 2 coats of Showgirl over one coat of Nails Inc Black Taxi. I opted to layer all of my KBShimmer polishes, and I especially chose to layer this one because it's a black jelly base. I had a feeling that the glitter wouldn't "come out and play" as much if I had to use multiple layers to reach opacity.
Showgirl is a mix of holo silver square and round glitter, as well as fuchsia glitter and micro-glitter in a black jelly base. She is unbelievable unique and I can't wait to wear it as a full manicure.
Like I mentioned, this is one of 5 KBShimmer polishes that I purchased, and I have to say, I am very pleased with (most) them in terms of formula and application. A lot of times, indie glitters have a tendency to want to stay in the bottle. I can't tell you how many times I've had to dig for hearts, or stars, or moons, or whatever else big, chunky glitters in the bottle.
With Showgirl, and most of the other KBShimmers I'm going to show you, the application was mindless. I did have to hunt a little bit to get the square glitters, but I simply dipped the brush back in the bottle and there they were. It wasn't a drawn out process. In fact, the formula on these reminds me very much of the now-unavailable NerdLacquers (and that's saying something because my lone NerdLacquer has an amazing formula and it's one of my favorites to apply).
KBShimmer polishes are available at KBShimmer's website. However, they only ship polish within the U.S. If you are international, please visit their stockist, Harlow & Co. Polishes sell for $8.50 from KBShimmer directly and $9.00 from Harlow & Co.
Showgirl was purchased by me. The above links link to websites to purchase this polish and are not affiliate links.
