KB Shimmer- When the Doves Sigh
Today I have for you swatches of KB Shimmer's When the Doves Sigh. Part of the Winter 2013 Collection, When the Doves Sigh is a grey crelly polish filled with fuchsia circles, square and hex glitters. Turquoise, sapphire, and chrome hexes, micro glitters, and circles mixed with micro holographic sparkles.
Show here with 2 coats plus top coat. The application was a surprise for me. The consistency was a little on the thin side, but not so thin that I had any issues. There was no pooling at my cuticles and I didn't have to fish around for glitters.
When the Doves Sigh dries to a slightly textured, semi-gloss finish. I used Girl on the Run from Pure Ice to smooth everything out and give it a super shiny look.
You can still pick up a bottle of When the Doves Sigh from KB Shimmer for $8.75 a bottle if you'd like to add it to your collection. Thanks for stopping by and Happy Polishing!
I like how the fuchsia circle glitters pop off from the grey base here.ReplyDelete
It makes for some great contrast.Delete
Isn't it nice when you don't have to fish for glitters? That seriously makes all the difference to me with a glitter polish!ReplyDelete
I love that I didn't have to fish for glitters. And I was shocked that I didn't with this polish being thinner than my other glitters. Maybe KB is on to something with the thinner formula?Delete
One of my favorites! :)ReplyDelete
I'm kind of kicking myself for waiting so long to get it. It's different from anything I have in my collection and now I want more like it.Delete
Anything with square glitter in it has my immediate love. I also really like the colour palette of this polish - those colours come through so nicely on the grey! Great polish. :)ReplyDelete
It really is a great combinations of colors.Delete
I really love this one! I'm not usually not drawn to grey polishes, but the more and more that I see this one, the more I want it.ReplyDelete
I'm a little weary of grey polishes too. You never know how dark they will be on the nail. The brighter glitters in this help keep it on the lighter side. I'm really glad I finally gave in a picked it up.Delete
I am a sucker for grey polishes and this makes no exception. And I really like that you mentioned you don't have to fish to get the glitters out!ReplyDelete
I usually stray away from grey polishes, because I feel like they can get too dark but this one is great. The color combination of glitters really makes it interesting. And I LOVE that I didn't have to fish around for them!Delete
I love KBShimmer polishes so much because I can wear gorgeous glitter bombs but not have to deal with a bunch of application issues! I always tell myself that I don't need this polish but I think I need to stop lying to myself and get it haha! Lovely swatches (:ReplyDelete
Thank you. I have only just started my KBShimmer collection. But the ones I have used so far I have loved. I'm completely kicking myself for not getting Run It's the Coppers yet. Fingers crossed there's still a bottle left when I go off my no buy.Delete
I don't have too many of KBShimmer crelly, but any crelly glitter that doesn't require fishing is good in my book! This looked great on you!ReplyDelete
Thank you. And I agree any glitter polish that doesn't require fishing is a win!Delete
I love this color! I have it too, but haven't tried it out yet. I really need to get on top of that. This looks lovely on you.ReplyDelete
I have to admit I had it sitting here for a few weeks before putting it on. But Im so glad I finally used it, I think you will really like it too.Delete
Thank you so much for sharing your honest opinion on this shade wit hus!ReplyDelete
The quality of your pictures looks always amazing ;)
Awe thanks Julia. I'm constantly working on improving my photos so that fact that someone notices means a lot to me.Delete
I love the shade. Gray and fuchsia work so well together! Thanks for the swatch :DReplyDelete
You're welcome. I agree that the color combination of the glitters with the grey base make for a great combo.Delete
It's such a great combo, a bit Fall-ish to my eye, so perfect for the next season!ReplyDelete
I can completely see the fall vibe this gives. It was after all inspired by the look of chunky sweaters.Delete
KBShimmer makes some pretty amazing polishes!ReplyDelete
I only own a few from her so far but I would have to agree with you.Delete
