KBShimmer Laugh Myself Lily

Didn't mean to let the week get away from me. I've been trying to make sure I post at least three times a week... I must work on getting posts set up on my weekends. Yesterday I went shopping with my husband for new linens because we are getting a new bed on Saturday, woo! We got some great deals and I got brand new white sheets and towels--I want to be able to bleach these items back into perfection haha. Our merriment was short-lived though.... later that evening he jacked up his car by side-swiping a lamp post. Then this morning I ripped my rear-view mirror off on the garage while backing out. Sigh. Anyway, at least this polish is cheering me up!

KBShimmer Laugh Myself Lily is a beautiful aqua jelly with pastel, holo, and circle glitters. I see yellow, silver, purple, pink, pale sea foam green, and blue for colors. This was the one most of the nail gals I knew were drooling over when the press release came out, myself included, and it does not disappoint!

For my swatch I used three coats. I started with one thin coat gradually built up the jelly and glitters. I fished and dabbed a few more circles and larger pink hexes where I wanted them. The formula is magical, I didn't add any thinner and I am a big fan of thinner haha! I used two thick coats of KBShimmer Clearly On Top for a smooth, glassy finish.

I had a hard time choosing an accent nail because there were so many ways I could go with it. I didn't have anything matching this exact perfect shade of aqua so I decided to pull the pink from the larger hexes which is also reminiscent of water lilies I have seen. The studs in the graphic lily arrangement were my finishing touch. I did topcoat over these studs in the photo and in my experience top-coated studs wear wonderfully.

I have been dying for a polish such as this. I am planning a giveaway with some other lovely bloggers and I will be providing a bottle of Laugh Myself Lily and Clearly On Top to one lucky reader. Stay tuned, I think we will be set in early April!

  5. Your accent nail really makes the mani pop! How do you feel about studs? I've considered trying them, but have heard a few horror stories of them getting caught.

    1. I've never had a problem with studs. I just put a couple thick coats of TC on it, works like a charm. I don't know what these other people were doing though haha!
