KBShimmer Spring Water Slides + Mani Shots

Press Sample 
*These products are Cruelty Free 

Happy Weekend! Today I have a few KBShimmer Water Slide Decals to show you that are perfect for Spring and 2 Limited Edition Mani Shots. I'm working on swatches of the upcoming Spring 2016 Collection launching March 15th, which I should have for you this coming week. In the mean time check these out!

KBShimmer Spring Mani Fun
Water Slides and Mani Shots!

First up - mani shots. These 2 scents are Limited Edition and since I've reviewed the mani shots before and told you how soft and silky and luxurious they feel, I just wanted you to be aware of these 2 new scents so you can grab them before they're gone.

As a lot of you know, I'm super sensitive to scents and get headaches and nausea easily. Fruity scents are usually ok, plus I love fruity, so I was so happy to see these.

WATERMELON!!! This scent is everything. I wish there were a way to SHOW you what this one smells like.

Sort of like this but better...

I had NO inkling of a headache or nausea and I just kept smelling my hands, which I'm sure looked really strange. Hey, they're just lucky I didn't go around asking people to "smell my hands!"

Fruity Bubbles is also fruity. It sort of smells like Fruity Pebbles but with perfume. This one smells really good but after a while I did start feeling like it wasn't going to return the love so I had to scrub with lemon juice.  I definitely need to pick up a few more of the Watermelon though before they're gone.


I picked out 3 "spring" water slides and I was thrilled with my selections. I've reviewed several of the water slides from KBShimmer before and find them so much easier to use, for me, than wraps and such. My nails have such a "high arch" or C-curve that anything too thick is very difficult and I end up saying naughty words and usually giving up. Water slides are much thinner and easier to use. I can shape them to my nail curve easily. Sometimes I have a bit of an issue at the tip, but I've learned to leave a good amount hanging off the edge (instead of back near the cuticle) and snip it in the middle so I can make the curve and not get wrinkles.

Moustache Clock Bowtie Water Slide Decals No.  625 - This sheet definitely more than covers one full manicure but they're not cut into nail shapes already for you so you can pick and choose where to cut/which design you want where and how much of the design you want. Applied over a base of KBShimmer Eyes White Open.


Coral Cream Plaid Floral No. 358 - I applied these over a base of OPI My Vampire is Buff.


Teal Pink Plaid Floral No. 267 - I applied these over a base of KBShimmer Eyes White Open
