“Extend-A-Mani” Guest Post By The Pointless Cafe

I’m so excited to be able to guest post here at KBShimmer’s blog! I live where there is no Autumn, so I pretty much keep Autumn on my nails the entire season. Today is no different!

I’ve done one of my “Extend-A-Mani” posts for you using KBShimmer polishes today.

I was wearing Dior Cosmic Violine, which is a brown/burgundy crelly and had a bit of tip wear. What to do? Well KBShimmer makes errthang better, right?  So I pulled out Cocoa Nut, 24 Carrot Bold and Every Nook and Cranberry and went to work.

On my thumb and ring finger, I just layered one coat of Cocoa Nut over the top. On the rest I did a really quick gradient over Cosmic Violine using 24 Carrot Bold and Every Nook and Cranberry. I use a plain make-up sponge and paint on strips of what I’m using and just dab over each nail a few times and Voila! I use an Elf concealer brush and straight acetone for clean-up around my cuticles.

First, here it is matted (I used butter LONDON’s Matte Finish)

And then I used KBShimmer Clearly on Top top coat. I love matte finish, but in this case I preferred it shiny.

I really love this mani. 24 Carrot Bold and Every Nook and Cranberry are great on their own but they also layer well and gradient well.  I do love versatility in a nail polish!

What do you think? Come on over to my blog, Pointless Café, and see me sometime! (Yes, I said that in my best Mae West voice.)

Thanks so much to Christy for having me! ♥

A Note from KBShimmer:  We are always excited to have guest bloggers, and Sheila does such amazing work!  Thank you!  Shelia used Cocoa Nut, a 2012 winter polish that was retired this spring.  Due to the many requests to bring this polish back, we have!  Cocoa Nut is now live on our site and will be available thru the end of the year.  So get this cool weather favorite while you can!
